GOP Sen. Marsha Blackburn says being called a 'Neanderthal' is actually a good thing after Biden criticized states for lifting mask mandates

Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee defended Neanderthals after President Joe Biden criticized Texas and Mississippi for lifting their mask mandates and called the decision "Neanderthal thinking."

"I hope everyone's realized by now these masks make a difference," Biden told reporters Wednesday. "The last thing we need is Neanderthal thinking that in the meantime everything's fine, take off your mask, forget it. It still matters."


In a Fox Business interview Thursday morning, Blackburn suggested it was actually a good thing to be called a Neanderthal.

"Neanderthals are hunter-gatherers. They're protectors of their family. They are resilient. They're resourceful. They tend to their own," the GOP senator said. "So I think Joe Biden needs to rethink what he is saying."


Shortly after she made the comment, fellow lawmakers and members of the public mocked Blackburn and pointed out that her use of the present tense was incorrect given that Neanderthals are extinct.

3. How dense can she get? Neanderthals went extinct long ago.

So clearly their skills were not up to Homo Sapien standards, or a match for natural selection.

7. The irony

How she became a Senator has to be due to corruption. Tennessee just can't be a state with a majority of Neanderthals.

Whatever the case, the irony that someone who clings on to "Evangelical Teachings" indicates she has some regard to Science, and ironically, the Science of Evolution. But like the majority of Evangelican Neanderthals, they tend to ignore the teachings of the New Testament, choosing instead to embrace and preach the more Neanderthal tainted aspect of the book they absolutely believe in over all else.

And she doesn't know how and where The Constitution of the United States is Amended as evidenced by a statement she made soon after Congress convened in January, saying that the Senate is not the place where changes are made to the Constitution.

She might be proud of being a Neanderthal, but she's apparently unaware that Homo sapiens "won out". Bigly.

Unfortunately for Homosapiens, Neanderthals are not completely extinct.

Hopefully Evolution will take care of that sooner rather than later.
