Ronald Reagan famously observed that “The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant. It’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” These days, nobody exemplifies that combination of self-assurance and self-delusion better than President Joe Biden.

Biden has long had an adversarial relationship with the truth (he once even plagiarized another politician’s biography), but in recent years, he’s become increasingly belligerent about repeating debunked stories. For instance, he keeps claiming that he decided to run for President when he heard Trump say there were “very fine people” among the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, something Trump never said (he said he was sure there were very fine people on both sides of the debate about removing Confederate monuments, but neo-Nazis “should be condemned totally.”) So there was really no reason for Joe to run for President. And if he can’t remember that this story is a hoax, he really shouldn’t be running for reelection.

That brings us to the latest false narrative that Biden trotted out for yet another go-round. This one involves events so recent that most of us remember what really happened, but not Joe, for some reason. At a government conference Monday, Biden tried to blame Trump for the deaths of a million Americans from COVID:

“You know, after we — the fellow who’s running again (Note: I’m not sure if he’s being deliberately disrespectful or he honestly can’t remember Trump’s name) — well, I .... After he did no — he did not move on making sure that we dealt with vaccinating the American public. We ended up losing over a million people dead — a million people. A million."

No matter what you think about the efficacy of the vaccines (and let’s just go for now with Biden’s belief that they were the only way to save lives), if you were at all sentient in 2019, then you should remember that they were developed in record time under Trump via a program called Operation Warp Speed. As Matt Margolis points out at the link, by the time Trump left office, his Administration had already ordered more than 400 million doses and had a vaccination program up and running that Biden inherited. He and Kamala Harris were vaccinated themselves in photo ops before they even took office (although I don’t recall either saying, “Thanks, President Trump!”)

Also, Biden personally commemorated the 1 millionth death “from COVID” (also debatable) on May 12, 2022, well over a year after he took office. In fact, more of those people died under his watch than under Trump’s. Matt has more on Biden’s various misstatements and attempts to shift blame at the link, but you get the idea.                                

Just one thing I’d like to mention that Matt didn’t include: Trump tried to shut down travel from China early on to stop the spread of the virus and buy valuable time that might have saved many lives. Biden and his fellow Democrats called him a racist and a xenophobe. Too bad there’s no vaccine for the leftist mind virus.
