Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the Democrats have been bashing President Trump and claiming he was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans. They claimed it was worse than the attacks on 9/11! Worse than the Vietnam War! But now that Biden is behind the big desk, the Dems only have excuses.
Dopey Dems already making excuses for Sleepy Joe
The CDC website claims there has been more than 20,000 COVID deaths in the last seven days alone. Surely this is Biden’s fault right? After all, he claimed Trump was responsible while in office. Biden said he would “follow the science” to bring the pandemic to an end. Now the Biden administration keeps moving the goal posts.
Politicians and political commentators bashed President Biden for saying “we didn’t have” the COVID-19 vaccine when he came into office.
Biden made the ridiculous claim during a CNN town hall with host Anderson Cooper. He had said earlier in the town hall that there were “50 million doses that were available” when he took office, in response to a question about his administration’s vaccine rollout.
Biden says there was no vaccine when he came into office.
That is abjectly FALSE. President Trump brought about the fastest vaccine for a novel pathogen in history.

Beijing Biden is losing his marbles
“It’s one thing about the vaccine – which we didn’t have when we came into office – but a vaccinator, you need the needle, you need the mechanisms to be able to get it in,” the president said. “Now, we have made significant strides increasing the number of vaccinators.”
Biden received his second dose on Jan. 11, three weeks after getting his first one with television cameras rolling in an attempt to reassure the American public that the inoculations are safe.
Biden said Pfizer agreed to “go to 600 million doses,” and his administration used the National Defense Act to “help the manufacturing piece of it to get more equipment and so on.” He added that the 600 million will be available “by the end of July.”
Former Trump White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany criticized the claim as “abjectly false.”
“Biden says there was no vaccine when he came into office. That is abjectly FALSE. President Trump brought about the fastest vaccine for a novel pathogen in history. How does Joe get away with this?” she tweeted on Tuesday.
Republican Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert appeared to mock the president’s memory in a Tuesday tweet responding to a video clip of the gaffe.
“In case anyone was wondering why Kamala is the one taking the calls with foreign heads of state,” she said.
But fact-checkers at CNN and the Washington Post downplayed the comment, sparking claims of a double standard from some politicians and commentators.
CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale said Biden “clearly wasn’t trying to claim the vaccine did not exist at all under Trump,” while Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler called the comment a “verbal stumble,” and said former Trump officials should “cool the outrage meter.”

The president’s comments come after Vice President Kamala Harris said in an interview published Tuesday that the Biden administration was “starting from scratch” in its plan to roll out COVID-19 vaccines, rather than start from where the Trump administration left off.
“There was no stockpile … of vaccines,” Harris told Axios co-founder Mike Allen. “There was no national strategy or plan for vaccinations. We were leaving it to the states and local leaders to try and figure it out. And so in many ways, we’re starting from scratch on something that’s been raging for almost an entire year!”
Both Harris and Biden are lying sacks of Deep State garbage. The fact is the Democrats have no plan or policies other than resisting Trump. He’s out of office and they’re still talking about him daily, blaming him for every one of their missteps. It’s pathetic.
WaPo rang up Trump for over 30,000 "false or misleading" claims — averaging 16 lies a day for 5 years. They dinged Trump for statements such as "I have tremendous African American support."
I don't know how you go from that hyperliteral standard to giving Biden a pass on this. https://t.co/5xTC7NqnkS
