The Neanderthal Museum in Germany responded to President Joe Biden’s “neanderthal thinking” comment regarding the Texas and Mississippi governors’ decision to remove the statewide mask mandates, in a tweet posted Thursday.
The museum, located in Mettmann, approved of the president’s criticism of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves for removing the mask requirements and loosening coronavirus restrictions.
“Dear @JoeBiden we approve of Your criticism concerning the decision to end state-wide mask mandates,” the museum tweeted.
“Still we strongly recommend You to visit our museum, once it is possible,” the post continued. “#neanderthals were smarter than You think!”
Biden has faced backlash after speaking to reporters in the Oval Office on Wednesday regarding the removal of the mask mandate, describing the decision as “neanderthal thinking.”
Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick called Biden a “hypocrite” for criticizing Texas policies while allowing illegal immigrants who tested positive for COVID-19 into Texas.
“How dare him attack Texas for our policies when he is allowing the border to be overrun by people coming in here by the hundreds, by the thousands and testing positive and coming on a bus to your state wherever you happen to live in the United States of America,” Patrick said, according to Fox News.
“What a hypocrite,” he added.
“The Biden administration was exposing Texans to COVID,” he continued. “That is a Neanderthal-type approach to dealing with the COVID situation.”
More than 100 illegal immigrants who were released by the Border Patrol into Texas since January have tested positive for coronavirus.

Videotapes from Jan. 6 Committee Witness Interviews Vanish
Videotapes containing witness interviews conducted by the Democrat-led January 6 congressional committee have disappeared. The chairman of the House Administration oversight subcommittee, Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), expressed his apprehension on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show.
According to Loudermilk, all videotapes of depositions have vanished, raising questions about the preservation of crucial evidence. He argued that, under House rules, these tapes qualified as congressional evidence, especially since some clips were aired during hearings. Loudermilk contended that the tapes should have been preserved by the now-defunct Jan. 6 committee and its chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.).
Loudermilk’s revelation has broader implications, potentially impacting criminal trials in both state court in Georgia and federal court in Washington, where individuals, including former President Donald Trump, face charges related to the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021. Notably, Trump’s legal team had recently requested evidence from the Jan. 6 committee but was denied by a judge.
The situation takes a further twist as Loudermilk disclosed that the J6 committee had sent certain evidence, such as transcripts, to the Biden White House and the Homeland Security Department. Shockingly, these transcripts have now been returned to Loudermilk’s GOP-led subcommittee almost entirely redacted, preventing the disclosure of their contents.
The lack of records regarding witnesses, their statements, and the extensive redactions have raised concerns among House Republicans. Loudermilk emphasized that these documents belong to the House and should not have been sent in such a heavily redacted form. The chairman questioned the motives behind the redactions, asking why a Democrat-run House was allowed to have unredacted documents while a Republican committee’s efforts were obstructed. This development adds another layer of complexity to the ongoing investigations into the events surrounding January 6, 2021.
