I know they like to use Covid as an excuse when it's convenient. In the days leading up to the Biden/Harris (fake) Inauguration, they tried to use fear of potential violence from Republicans (ha!) and/or Covid-19. It's really enough. There were more National Guard at the Inauguration than people! The flags were an expense that was unnecessary. They should have taken the money for the flags and the fireworks and finally paid out the stimulus checks!
