Watch: Joe Biden Tells Huge Whopper in Church

Joe Biden has finally emerged from his basement. He may be the only person still wearing a mask. Incorrectly, of course.

But he just told some huge whoppers about the Wuhan coronavirus.

He’s now trying to claim that he was warning about the virus in January and that if President Donald Trump had shut down a month earlier and listened to him, “45-60,000 people would be alive instead of dead.”

He really is delusional at this point and completely rewriting facts and reality.

The reality?

Biden made absolutely no recommendations for a shutdown earlier or in his story in January. The story was again full of nonsense and contained lies about Trump’s actions. He misleadingly states that Trump proposed cuts to the NIH and the CDC, yet there were never cuts and any proposals didn’t involve pandemic response. He also spread the lie that went on for months without media debunking it, that Trump cut the pandemic team, when the person in charge of it, Tim Morrison said it was simply reorganized into another department. Biden misleadingly said the whole team was dismantled without saying there was a restructuring.

Biden didn’t say anything at all even about cutting travel in January, while the President was forming a task force, activating the CDC, declaring a public health emergency, and cutting travel with China. Indeed he spoke out against cutting travel in that January story, calling travel bans “reactionary that would only have made things worse.” Then in remarks in response to Trump’s decision to cut travel, Biden called Trump responding with “hysterical xenophobia.”

When Trump cut travel with Europe on March 12, Biden spoke out against that too, saying he didn’t think that was the right move.

Why did Trump do that? He saw more virus cases coming in from Europe at that point into New York and stopped it, thus saving more lives. Both actions saved lives according to Dr. Anthony Fauci. Moves that Joe Biden spoke out against.

Meanwhile, what was Joe actually doing in March now that he appears to be claiming this? He was holding rallies on March 2, 3, 7, 9, 10. Trump’s social distancing guidelines started March 16.

Remember this when he was yelling in a voter’s face without a mask on March 10? Doesn’t look like he was following any lockdowns or safety procedures at all.

Where’s the mask or the social distancing Joe?

March 9:

Not to mention his “coronavirus adviser” Ron Klain was saying we had more to fear from the “fear epidemic” instead of the virus in February the very month that Joe is now claiming we should have shut down.

In fact, Biden didn’t even come out officially for cutting travel until April 2, months after Trump did it.

This lie needs to be rebutted loudly and strongly. It also says everything about who Biden is if he thinks he can see this to the American people and he’d lie in a church like this after what we’ve gone through with the pandemic, the death of George Floyd, and the riots.
