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.

Biden Energy Secretary Subject of Ethics Complaint for Promoting Electric Company She Held $1.6 Million in Stock

President Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm has received an ethics complaint for promoting an electric bus company she sat on the board of and held over a million dollars of stock in. She did so all while being a part of the executive branch in Biden’s administration.

Breitbart reports Granholm, “who oversees moving the country toward an electric vehicle transportation system and enjoys newfound powers after the passage of Biden’s infrastructure package — is facing scrutiny for promoting Proterra, a Burlingame, California-based electric bus company she sat on the board of and held 240,520 shares of stock in, which garnered her $1.6 million when she finally divested them 157 days after her nomination.”

Critics say Granholm has promoted Proterra in her official capacity as energy secretary and for hyping grant access to companies with connections to Proterra. Additionally, they say Granholm’s promotion of Proterra has increased its visibility and therefore the value of her stock before she was required to sell her shares due to ethics rules.

As of Monday, the company had a market cap of $2.6 billion. Granholm also promoted Burlingame, a California electric vehicle company, at the same time “Democrats in Congress were crafting – and ultimately passing – Biden’s $1.2 trillion infrastructure package, which dramatically increases Granholm’s authority as energy secretary to advance private sector companies in the transition to an electric vehicle-based transportation infrastructure” reports Breitbart.

The infrastructure package “grants as much as $174 billion to green vehicles and $456 billion to zero-emission buses to ‘replace 50,000 diesel transit vehicles and electrify at least 20 percent of our yellow school bus fleet’ and ‘to build a national network of 500,000 EV chargers by 2030.”

Breitbart reports:

Granholm’s involvement with Proterra started in March of 2017 when the company announced she would be joining its board ostensibly due to her experience with the automotive sector when she served as Michigan’s governor from 2003 to 2011. Proterra hoped to use Granholm’s “track record for producing a high-quality clean energy and transportation workforce in the Midwest” to launch the company into the “next phase of strategic growth and national deployment,” its press release explained. During her time on the board, Granholm supplemented her considerable income by simultaneously serving on the boards and consulting for various left-wing organizations as well, such as American Bridge PAC and Media Matters.
