Biden stages bizarre dancing nurses show to distract from his Covid strategy failures

President Joe Biden was slammed on Thursday for holding Christmas festivities at the White House this week, complete with nurses singing ‘We Need a Little Christmas’ and a maskless First Lady, as critics claimed the event was ‘tone deaf’ and meant to distract from the president’s COVID policy failures. 

The White House invited the famous Northwell Health’s Nurse Choir to perform at this year’s ‘Spirit of the Season’ TV special Tuesday night, and many were quick to point out the poor visuals of happy nurses singing amid the current Omicron surge. 

The performance also featured some singers without masks, as well as a maskless Jill Biden off to the side, despite the White House’s indoor mask mandate in place. 

The festivities went on as Biden comes under fire for failing to provide hundreds of millions of free rapid COVID tests to Americans in time for the COVID surge expected in January.

WATCH: 

COVID cases in the U.S. have skyrocketed by 38 percent in the last 24 hours to 238,278 new infections as the highly contagious variant continues to spread, with some states seeing cases go up by 670 percent. 

The surge comes as Biden vowed to distribute 500 million free COVID rapid tests, a plan experts say comes too late and which was previously mocked by White House press secretary Jen Psaki. 

Psaki was eventually forced to defend her boss on Thursday amid questions over the timing of his COVID-19 test expansion and accusations that he acted too late to stop massive delays in testing and results just two days before Christmas.

Hours later a report emerged in Vanity Fair that the Biden administration had rejected a roadmap to getting at-home rapid COVID tests to every American to avoid the holiday surge currently wreaking havoc on people’s Christmas plans.

The ambitious blueprint called for 732 million monthly COVID tests – far more than what Biden promised would come in January.

Psaki chalked up the president’s delayed response to a lack of demand in the summer months.
