President Joe Biden was already drawing heavy criticism over the shortage of COVID testing kits as panic over the Omicron variant sweeps the nation but his remarks on Monday when he passed the buck to the states set off a raging firestorm that has also scorched White House Chief of Staff Ronald Klain.

The prolific tweeter’s words from last year criticizing then-President Donald J. Trump for not fully mobilizing the federal government to fight the virus, but instead allowing the states to manage the unprecedented health crisis as he should have, has not aged well, resulting in a pummeling from critics.

According to Klain, “I’ve been saying since March that we can’t beat COVID with an “Articles of Confederation” response. We have a national government for a reason. If Donald Trump won’t use it to beat this killer disease, I know someone who will, starting on 1/20/21.”

Once again, Klain’s tendency to shoot from the hip on Twitter has come back to bite him with users taking to the platform to drag him down memory lane.

Last summer, Biden also vowed a “coordinated response from the federal government” in one of his attacks on Trump, falsely presenting himself as the man best suited to bring an end to COVID and restore the nation to normalcy, a promise that he has struggled mightily to deliver upon – and that was before he punted the ball during his conference call with state governors.

Republicans took to Twitter to weigh in after Biden pawned off the responsibility for mitigating the virus to the states.

Also slamming Biden’s flip-flopping was the panel on Fox News’ popular show “The Five” who excoriated the administration and its figurehead, particularly on the lack of availability of test kits which flew off of shelves as terrified people scrambled to find out whether they were infected with Omicron during Christmas week, many who likely didn’t have symptoms as the White House-media fear campaign boomeranged politically.

Klain also stepped in it with a Sunday retweet of a column claiming that, despite America’s hellish year under Biden’s stewardship, it really hasn’t been that bad after all because Trump is gone.

Some begged to differ with Klain who, it seems, isn’t living in a reality-based world.

On the bright side, Biden’s miserable performance on COVID is finally getting the attention that it deserves as a result of the fumbled Omicron response and the testing debacle.
