Joe Biden has been a bit lenient with who is getting credit for what regarding the pandemic.
Even as biased as the mainstream media is these days, it is hard to comprehend how he was not challenged on his most recent claim.
During Biden’s latest effort to slap himself on the back, he claimed inauguration day was when cases finally started to dip, but the decline actually started on January 8.
Biden is so tainted against Trump, he will not even mention his name.
When he stated that vaccine approval had been given, he stated it happened when a Republican was in office.
Biden, touting the vaccine, stated, “The science was done under Democratic and Republican administrations. As a matter of fact, the first vaccines were authorized under a Republican president and widely developed by a Democratic president – deployed by a Democratic president.”
I am not sure what Joe Biden means by “developed” because his administration had nothing at all to do with the development of the vaccine, and the numbers tell a clear tale that recovery was well underway by the time he took office.
Furthermore, by the time Biden took office, the United States had just hit the one-million per day mark in vaccines, so again, this is just blatantly misleading the American people.
Biden, touting the decline, stated, “It’s clearer than ever the more people we get vaccinated, the more success we’re going to have in our fight against this virus.
“Since Jan. 20 … the average daily cases are down from 184K to 19K. Below 20,000 for the first time since March of 2020. Average hospitalizations are down from 117,000 to 21,000. Death rates are down over 85%.”
He continued, “This didn’t just happen by chance,” the president continued. “We got to this moment because we took aggressive action from day one with a whole-of-government response.”
Biden’s claim can be easily refuted, but that is only part of the problem with this statement.
What is more troublesome is that it appears as though Biden wants everyone to believe that something magical happened the moment he took office regarding COVID, which is just absurd.
January 8 actually marked the beginning of the decline, with a seven-day average of 259,604.
By the time Joe Biden took office, the seven-day average had dipped to about 195,000.
That is about a 25 percent decline, so clearly, the vaccine effort was already paying off on Trump’s watch and Joe Biden just needed to keep the ball rolling.
More shocking than Biden’s ridiculous claims is that the media is not challenging him on this at all.
I get the liberal bias that exists with many mainstream media outlets today, but these statements are misleading at times and blatantly false at others.
It is the duty of the media to ensure the American people get the facts, yet today’s media just sits on their collective hands and nods in approval at everything that Biden says.
