With the 2022 midterms approaching, Democrats are changing their message on COVID.
Some Democratic governors are lifting vaccine and mask mandates and others are boasting about the efforts of the Biden administration.
No one is buying it, including Greg Gutfeld, who made this the focus of a recent monologue.
foxnews provides a partial transcript:
So I saw something strange last night, and for once it wasn’t in the mirror above my bed after a night of heavy drinking.
I turned on CNN and there I saw John King running through some pretty bad numbers for the president, and none of them even involved his IQ.
JOHN KING: Look how bad these numbers are for the president. Only four in 10 Americans, 41 percent right now, approve of their job performance. Nearly six in 10 (58 percent) disapprove.
This is a tough number at the start of a midterm election year for the President of the United States. Now, why does this happen? This is fascinating. We ask people, “What has President Biden done for you that you approve of?”
Fifty-six percent of Americans, almost six out of 10 Americans, that means a decent number of Democrats said, “Nothing.” They disapprove of everything that has happened.
That is awesome. You know, if you’re quiet enough, you can hear Jimmy Carter heaving a sigh of relief, because there’s a lot of people saying that Joe hasn’t done anything for them, and that’s coming from CNN, so I’d double down.
I take everything I get from CNN and dub it, including Brian Stelter’s BMI.
Of course, CNN defended Joe, noting that he approved of that infrastructure plan. And is King worried that the good things Joe didn’t do are really catching on?
Where is all the good that they promised us? In the same COVID survey, another 60 percent said they were angry and 75 percent said they were burned out…
Nice try. You see what is happening. As the pandemic draws to a close, they want credit for shutting it down.

Many people speculate that Biden will try to take a victory lap in his State of the Union address in March.
It will not work.
