On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) responded to President Biden referring to Texas and Mississippi reversing their states’ mask mandates as “Neanderthal thinking.”

“Joe Biden is calling us Neanderthals, I’m going to wear that as a badge of honor. This is the unity message of Joe Biden. We’re going to unite the country, he said in his inauguration speech. Well, you know what brings unity better than going out and telling 30 million Americans that they are Neanderthals because the governor believes that maybe, just maybe, adult Americans have the right and ability to go out and make a decision about whether they should or should not wear a mask on their face. Call me crazy. That’s where the governor is, and so that makes him a Neanderthal. This is the absurdity of the Biden administration. And he’s basically just a puppet for the radical left. The Joe Biden of a decade ago never would have done this. I disagreed with him. He was a jackass during the Clarence Thomas hearings. I’ve never like Biden in that way. But he wasn’t just a nut ball. But he’s now been completely captured by the radical left and frankly, his chief of staff and others, are the ones actually calling the shots.”
