In his weekly DailyMail opinion, article Piers Morgan ripped into America’s groveling fake news media because they were too busy placing halos on Saint Joe to report on President Biden telling “Trump-sized” lies about the COVID vaccine roll-out.
Morgan quipped, “No wonder Trump supporters still don’t believe anything they hear.”
Well, the brave new world of honesty in American politics lasted a grand total of 24 hours.
President Joe Biden promised an immediate end to the constant lying from the White House that we endured over four years of Donald Trump’s tenure.
But then he couldn’t help himself and promptly spewed the kind of brazen, bare-faced, media-bashing whopper that Trump would have loved.
Biden’s made a big noisy deal of setting a target of 100 million coronavirus vaccines in his first 100 days.
But he knows that hitting this target would be a completely bogus ‘achievement’ because the US is already at that level of vaccination, averaging 914,000 daily doses administered last week according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and rocketing to 1.6 million on the very day of Biden’s inauguration.
So, at this rate, the goal will be easily attained, and masks the reality that America could and should be aiming a lot higher.
That, though, wasn’t the lie.
That was just the kind of under-promise, over-deliver type of sneaky political spin designed to grab headlines and win a cheap ‘victory’ down the line when the target is easily met.
Joe Biden Lies About Trump’s COVID Vaccine Roll-Out
No, the lie came when Biden was asked by a reporter at the White House to defend such a comparatively derisory target and angrily snapped back: ‘When I announced it, you all said it’s not possible. Come on, give me a break, man. It’s a good start – 100 million.’
This was utter nonsense.
Nobody qualified to comment in the mainstream media said it was impossible.
In fact, on the day in December when Biden first made his 100 million pledge, CNN’s medical expert Dr. Sanjay Gupta said it was ‘very doable’ given what he’d been told by the vaccine companies controlling supply.
Biden knows this because he’ll have been told the same information by the same companies.
Yet he chose to pretend the media had ALL attacked him for making an impossible promise.
And he did that to deflect them from rightly pulling him up on the weakness of his pledge.
Good politics, bad optics – especially from the man the media seems to think is more Saint than President.
I didn’t have a problem with the generally euphoric reaction to Biden’s inauguration. Like most people, I found his unifying speech very inspiring and it was a welcome relief to hear some civility coming out of the mouth of the President of the United States again after four long profane years.
But by the following morning, I expected the US media to start doing to Biden what they did to Trump from the moment HE got elected and hold his feet to ferocious fire.
After all, the most important function of the media is to make government accountable for its actions.
Instead, the open fawning has carried on in a quite nauseating manner.
The vaccine roll-out is a perfect illustration of the double standard at play.
The media’s largely been very content to play along with Biden’s narrative that Trump did nothing on vaccines, it’s all been a ‘dismal failure’ and he’s now the jab-administering cavalry to save everyone.
One White House official even asserted as fact about the vaccine program: ‘There is nothing for us to rework. We are going to have to build everything from scratch.’
This completely false statement was quickly debunked by Dr. Anthony Fauci who said: ‘We certainly are not starting from scratch because there is activity going on in the distribution.’
