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.
