Back in March, Biden told Americans that if we behave and follow COVID guidelines, we might be able to celebrate July 4th in small groups.
Now he is saying that might not be possible.
Who does he think he is? He doesn’t get to decide these things.
The New York Post reports:
Biden warns if Americans don’t get COVID jabs they might have to cancel July 4
President Biden on Wednesday warned Americans they may have to cancel “small” outdoor gatherings on the Fourth of July if there’s a slowdown of COVID-19 vaccinations.
More than 51 percent of American adults have received at least one vaccine dose, according to CDC data, indicating that herd immunity and the pandemic’s end are near.
But Biden said at the White House that he’s not yet comfortable saying people can hold small outdoor gatherings on Independence Day.
“Back on March 11, I outlined a vision of what America could look like by the Fourth of July — an America that was much closer to normal life that we left behind more than a year ago,” Biden said.
He warned: “To celebrate our independence from this virus on July 4th with family and friends in small groups, we still have more to do in the months of May and June. We all need to mask up until the number of cases goes down, until everyone has a chance to get their shot.”

Biden thinks we need his permission to hold gatherings. We don't. https://t.co/Qo9rr4H6wk

Government officials don't cancel the 4th of July. That's why it's the 4th of July. https://t.co/ai93X9Zoee

We had fireworks and food in our neighborhood last year and we’ll be doing it again this year and there’s not a thing President Pudding Brain can do about it.
Go be free. https://t.co/Ew92CMvVGg

The American people don’t need Joe’s approval to celebrate July 4th.
