Mark Meadows has some harsh words for Joe Biden.
Mark Meadows spoke to reporters briefly at about 8:30 a.m. He had this to say when asked about whether POTUS was “waving a white flag” on the virus: “Well, the only person waving a white flag along with his white mask is Joe Biden.
“We’re going to defeat the virus; we’re not going to control it. We will try to contain it as best we can, but if you look at the full context of what I was talking about, we need to make sure that we have therapeutics and vaccines, we may need to make sure that when people get sick, that, that they have the kind of therapies that the President of the United States had. Then we can provide those emergency using authorizations; hopefully, they’ll be coming in very short order,” said Meadows.
He also said he had not himself taken one of the experimental vaccines.
Regarding tonight’s event after the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation: ” Tonight we’ll be doing the best we can to encourage as much social distancing as possible.”
Asked whether VP Pence would be at the Senate for the confirmation vote: “I think that is in flux.”
Meadows, who said he has two children living in Georgia, also said the state will be “an uphill battle” for Joe Biden.
