Joe Biden did a town hall event on CNN this week and actually said there was no vaccine when he took office.
That is a flat out lie.
At some point, you have to wonder if it’s his dementia or if he just knows he can lie with no push back from the media.
FOX News reports:
Biden mocked for claim that ‘we didn’t have’ COVID-19 vaccine when he took office
Politicians and political commentators mocked President Biden for a gaffe Tuesday when he said “we didn’t have” the COVID-19 vaccine when he came into office.
Biden made the slip-up 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.
“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 as president-elect, 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 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.

The Washington Post’s ‘fact checker’ came running to Biden’s defense, naturally.
It was a verbal stumble, a typical Biden gaffe, as he had already mentioned 50 million doses being available when he took office. Ex Trump officials should especially cool the outrage meter, as it just looks silly. https://t.co/HFjH01lXgH

The media is going to try to cover for him every time. It’s pathetic.
