Political theater is alive and well in Washington D.C!
During Joe Biden’s upcoming State of the Union address, Nancy Pelosi (or whichever Democrat is in charge of these things) is demanding that attendees undergo a series of religious rituals which signal your submission to almighty “science” and “public health”.
Sen. Marco Rubio shared the rules for the upcoming address that will require members of the U.S. Congress to socially distance at all times while wearing secured K95 masks after submitting a negative coronavirus test one day before.
Wait, why would SOTU attendees need to wear masks if they test negative for COVID-19, are vaccinated, and everyone near them is vaccinated?
Make it make sense!
The guidelines said that these requirements will apply to “all State of the Union attendees including members of Congress, invited press, and any staff person who will be in close contact with a principal in TENDIES in a support staff role.”
The guidelines also strongly recommended that attendees receive the coronavirus booster vaccine two weeks prior to the event.

Americans in general have had about enough with the political theater.
A recent Reuters/Ipsos survey showed that a majority of Americans disapprove of the president’s handling of the coronavirus despite his promise to “shut down” the virus.
“Overall, 48% said they disapprove, compared to 47% who approve,” as reported earlier this week.
“However, of those who approve, 17% do so ‘strongly,’ while 17% ‘somewhat approve,’ and 13% ‘lean’ towards approve.”
“Over a quarter of those who disapprove, 26%, do so ‘strongly,’ while 11% ‘somewhat’ disapprove, and 11% lean towards it. 5%, overall, remain unsure,” the report added.
On Thursday, Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the president’s chief coronavirus advisers, said that he approves of keeping masks on children for the time being.
“It’s understandable why people want to take masks off the kids. But, right now, given the level of activity that we have, it is risky,” Fauci told CNN.
“And it very well may be that if you take masks off of kids in the next week or so, it’s going to keep going down. But you have to be careful.”
Despite science, Dr. Fauci claims “it is risky” to stop forcing kids to wear facemasks
