On August 6, 1945, Harry S Truman faced a very important decision, and that was dropping the Atom Bomb on Japan. Today, new details emerge for Joe Biden, who is desperately trying to distance from Donald Trump and make his own historical mark on the presidency. These are the 45th and 46th Presidents, respectively.
You see, all presidents have tough decisions to make, and that’s just the nature of the job. Truman’s decision to drop the atom bomb on Japan ended a lot of lives, and it was something that kept him up at night. However, it likely saved countless more lives in the process.
The problem for all three of these men is that when you fast forward to today, you have a lot of bleeding hearts that think that every man who occupies this office is automatically a terrible person, and if the 34th President were serving today I am sure we would have second-rate actresses such as Kathy Griffin holding up his severed head like we did with 45.
My point is this: there are many individuals who think that we can now blame the presidents for those who die during their term like they are not men who I presume are at least trying to serve with dignity, treating them like they are bloodthirsty dictators instead. This leads us to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the fiery debate raging about who had more deaths under their watch: Trump or Biden?
This comes on the heels of the United States hitting another grim COVID-19 milestone, and that would be the fact that we are now over 800,000 cumulative COVID-19 related deaths.
The cases are now rising again across the country due to the Omicron variant of the coronavirus taking hold. Thus, politicians, journalists, and social media aficionados are taking stock of Joe Biden’s ability to handle this pandemic. Some like what they see; some do not.
It was this week that multiple public figures and social media users attempted to compare the Biden Administration and the Trump Administration in regards to how they have handled this pandemic. One way they did this was to analyze the cumulative number of deaths from the virus under each president.
“Joe Biden based his entire 2020 presidential campaign on the promise he would solve covid by trusting “the science.” It was all bullshit. He’s presided over more deaths, hospitalizations & cases than Trump. Yet the media crushed Trump for covid, gives Biden a pass,” political commentator Clay Travis tweeted.
Others took a more pragmatic approach; they simply posted the death count figures that seemed to indicate that more Americans have fallen victim to COVID under Biden rather than Trump. For example, there was a poll that one individual noted that Trump was at 392,641 with the vaccine available and Biden had 411,359 deaths with an available vaccine. Once these new details emerge, it is obvious that one president did better than the other.
As these new details emerge, the vaccine is now fully available, so you really have to wonder just what excuse that President Biden could possibly have at this point…
