Now that the 2022 midterms are approaching, Democrats are shifting their messaging on COVID.
Some Democrat governors are lifting vaccine and mask mandates and others are bragging about the efforts of the Biden administration.
No one is buying it, including Greg Gutfeld, who made this the focus of a recent monologue.
FOX News provides a partial transcript:
So I saw something weird 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 going through some pretty bad numbers for the president, and none of them even involved his IQ.
JOHN KING: Look at how bad these numbers are for the president. Only four in 10 Americans, 41 percent at the moment, approve of his job performance. Nearly six in 10 — 58 percent — disapprove.
hat’s a tough number early in a midterm election year for the president of the United States. Now, why is this happening? This is fascinating. We asked people, “What has President Biden done for you that you approve of?”
Fifty-six percent of Americans, nearly six in 10 Americans, that means a decent amount of Democrats said, “Nothing.” They disapprove of everything that has happened.
So that’s amazing. You know, if you’re quiet enough, you can hear Jimmy Carter letting out a sigh of relief, because that’s a lot of people who say Joe’s done nothing for them, and that’s coming from CNN, so I would double it.
I take everything I get from CNN and double it, including Brian Stelter’s BMI.
Of course, CNN defended Joe, pointing out that he passed that infrastructure plan. And King worries that the good stuff Joe didn’t, did — is really sinking in?
Where is this good stuff that we were promised? In the same poll about COVID, another 60 percent said they were angry and 75 percent were burned out…
Nice try. You see what’s happening. As the pandemic comes to a close, they want credit for closing it.

Many people are speculating that Biden will try to take a victory lap at his state of the union speech in March.
It won’t work.
