Hollywood star Randy Quaid made famous for roles in ‘Independence Day’ and ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas’ among other notable films mocked the Biden admin’s Fourth of July comment on social media.
“If we do all this, if we do our part, if we do this together, by July the 4th, there’s a good chance you, your families, and friends will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout and a barbeque and celebrate Independence Day,” Biden said.
“That doesn’t mean large events with lots of people together, but it does mean small groups will be able to get together,” he added.
“We can’t let our guard down. A July 4th with your loved ones is the goal. But a goal…a lot can happen, conditions can change.”
“The scientists have made clear that things may get worse again as new variants of the virus spread.”
