This week a flurry of mask mandates and COVID-19 guidances returned to the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a new guidance that recommended Americans, even those who are fully vaccinated, wear face masks indoors in areas of the U.S. experiencing "high COVID-19 transmission rates."
Major cities and several states followed suit and enacted similar mask mandates. Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) reacted to the new mask mandates and potential new lockdowns with a message to Americans: "No one should comply."
On Thursday afternoon, Crenshaw shared a video clip of White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre admitting that the Biden administration would consider new lockdowns.
Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked Jean-Pierre, "So if you're listening to the science, if scientists come to you at some point down the line and say, 'It is our opinion that there should be shutdowns and there should be school closures,' you would do that?"
Jean-Pierre responded that the Biden administration would impose lockdowns if the experts recommended shutdowns.
"Well, we listen to — like I said, we listen to the CDC and the expert and their guidance. Our — you know, our — the CDC is a body that is very well respected. And we fol- — again, we follow their guidance," Jean-Pierre stated, as reported by BizPac Review.
Crenshaw shared the admission that the Biden administration would implement lockdowns if scientists advised to do so, and captioned the tweet: "If the CDC, Biden, or any local leader recommends another lockdown, don't comply. Businesses. Schools. Restaurants. No one should comply."
