Joe Biden was caught red-handed in a coronavirus lie that just came back to bite him
As Joe Biden inches closer to the Democrat Party nomination for President, Biden is ramping up his attacks on President Trump.
But the former Vice President overshot his mark.
And as a result Joe Biden was caught red-handed in a coronavirus lie that just came back to bite him.
During the last Democrat Presidential debate, Biden attacked Trump for the slow rollout of coronavirus testing.
But Biden used a falsehood to smear President Trump by claiming that the administration rejected the World Health Organization test for coronavirus and that is why the United States fell behind on testing.
“We refused them. We did not want to buy them. We did not want to get them from them. We wanted to make sure we had our own,” Biden said at the debate.
Biden’s lie was so over the top that even the so-called “fact checkers” – who are really are Democrat party activists – had to call foul on Biden.
The left-wing PolitiFact wrote in response explaining Biden’s falsehood:
The Biden campaign referred us to a Politico article that said the WHO shipped coronavirus tests to nearly 60 countries at the end of February, but the U.S. was not among them. That is technically correct, but it suggests that the United States would have been on the list under any circumstances.
The countries WHO helped are ones that lack the virology lab horsepower that exists across the United States. The outreach work by the Pan American Health Organization is a case in point.
“No discussions occurred between WHO and CDC about WHO providing COVID-19 tests to the United States,” said WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris. “This is consistent with experience since the United States does not ordinarily rely on WHO for reagents or diagnostic tests because of sufficient domestic capacity.”
Joe Biden often tells falsehoods.
Biden caused a minor stir when he fabricated a story about being arrested when visiting Nelson Mandella on a trip to South Africa.
But considering Biden’s deteriorating mental state it is hard to figure out if he is telling lies or is just the victim of cognitive decline and can no longer tell truth from fiction.
