In the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, we are seeing the caliber of Joe Biden as a leader. And it’s pretty bad. The Democrat candidate has been fumbling his response to this crisis since day one. His constant criticism of President Trump only blows up in his face. And his latest claim is so pathetic, it was debunked before he even said it.
Yeah, it must be hard running for public office during a national crisis. If Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden had any shred of integrity, they would have totally suspended their campaigns weeks ago to focus on recovery. Instead, they continue to spend resources and manpower on their longshot chances at taking the White House from Donald Trump.
At least Bernie Sanders is a senator and can vote on legislation. But what is Joe Biden doing? Absolutely nothing. The man’s response to COVID-19 has been utterly ridiculous. In recent weeks, he’s made “recommendations” to the president for battling the disease. Except, they were things Trump has already been doing.
Biden attacked Trump’s use of the word “Chinese Virus,” echoing a statement from China’s government-controlled media. Not great, Joe.
Now, he’s pushing a claim that Trump’s responsible for the outbreak because he dissolved Obama’s pandemic office. The problem with that bogus claim? It was debunked days before Biden made it.
Talk about an idiot.
CLAIM: The coronavirus outbreak hit the U.S. because President Donald Trump “eliminated” President Barack Obama’s pandemic office.
Former vice president Joe Biden claimed on Twitter on Thursday that the U.S. is “paying the price” of coronavirus because President Trump “eliminated” an office that dealt with pandemics.
Biden is wrong — very wrong. This falsehood almost deserves an entirely separate category of ignominy because of its ability to divide and frighten people in the middle of a crisis that requires social cooperation and trust.
The truth — as explained earlier this week in the Washington Post by former National Security Council official Tim Morrison — is that the office was combined with others in a reorganiztion that “left the biodefense staff unaffected.” [Source: Breitbart]
This is pretty much par for the course for Joe Biden. Since he entered the race, he’s made one outrageous claim about Trump after another. These aren’t the typical false talking points pushed by the media. These are blatant lies that can easily be disproven by facts.
Biden is now defending the communist nation of China—whose incompetence led to the global pandemic.
Funny how he refuses to put the blame on the real culprit. Everyone knows the virus originated in China. The Chinese government refused to deal with it or warn the world. They sat back as countless infected people traveled to other countries, spreading the infection.
But yet Biden has not once demanded China take responsibility for their actions. Not once has he said they should play a role in recovery.
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that his son got rich off of Chinese investors?
Or maybe it’s because Joe Biden’s mind is slipping so rapidly, he doesn’t really know what he’s saying?
Or maybe, in the end, he’s a pathetic candidate who will say anything, no matter how false, just to hurt his rival?
In a time like this, we need to work together to save lives. Every American is making sacrifices to slow the virus’s spread. The government is coming together in ways we’ve never seen, to ensure we come out of this stronger than before.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden is spreading lies and provoking more fear. He should be ashamed.
