Biden admits he can't fix the virus

Fox News"If we fail to act, there will be a wave of evictions and foreclosures in the coming months as this pandemic rages on because there’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months," Biden said.

Biden had pledged efforts to jumpstart the US economy and provide aid to struggling Americans would be his top priority upon entering the Oval Office. The two executive orders Friday followed 10 other actions related to the pandemic he signed the previous day, including a mandate requiring masks to be worn on federal land.

The president faced some pushback over his remarks on the pandemic’s trajectory. Critics, including former Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, pointed out that coronavirus-related restrictions imposed in several states were meant to "flatten the curve."

"Haven’t we been told for months that restrictions and mandates were necessary to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months?" Amash wrote on Twitter.

Biden ran on having a better plan to fix the coronavirus right away, but practically his first day in office he admits there is nothing he can do to change its course. Lockdowns don't work. Masks don't work. It's a respiratory virus; the relevant particles are just too small for a mask to filter and infections will spread no matter what. Hand-washing and sanitizing surfaces are helpful but not preventative. Even vaccines are useless -- the immunity will be temporary as the virus mutates.

But the panic put Biden in office and that's all he cared about.
