NBC News and other media outlets are eating their words after repeatedly touting claims that a Coronavirus vaccine from the Trump administration was impossible. For months President Trump has been nothing but confident in his ability to provide a vaccine to Americans within the year with the help of Operation Warp Speed. However, the media has done what it does best, attempt to disparage Trump at any turn. President Trump proved them all wrong as the United States watched as the first recipients of the Coronavirus vaccine were injected on Monday.
NBC News shared a “fact check” in May saying that President Trump’s vaccine predictions were way off and Americans shouldn’t expect a vaccine for many more months. Clearly, they got it wrong.

Media critics flooded Twitter to point out NBC’s “fact check” and its many inaccuracies.
TV host Buck Sexton shared the May article commenting, “fact checking’ predictions isn’t a fact check, but the frauds at NBC News knew that and didn’t care. Also, looks like they have to admit Trump is a miracle worker now.”

NBC News wasn’t alone in incorrectly claiming President Trump wasn’t capable of administering a safe vaccine before the end of the year.
Fox News reports:
“I would bet my left arm that Donald Trump can’t spell vaccine, let alone be able to make a prediction about when we’re likely to see one,” MSNBC contributor and Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt told a chuckling Joy Reid on May 15.
A Miami Herald article on Oct. 23 declared, “Trump says COVID-19 vaccine is coming ‘within weeks.’ Experts say that’s not possible.” CNN cast doubt on Trump’s September suggestion that every American could receive a vaccine by April by quoting an anonymous source in a report headlined, “Trump says every American can get a coronavirus vaccine by April, but health experts say that’s not likely.”
MSNBC’s Ari Melber said it would require “basically a miracle happening” for Trump’s claim to come true, while headlines like Business Insider’s “A coronavirus vaccine probably won’t be ready before the end of 2021, according to a Swiss pharmaceutical giant” flashed on the screen.
“The development for an effective vaccine against the coronavirus by even the end of the year would mark a watershed moment in medicine as vaccines typically take several years, if not decades, to succeed,” NPR reported on Sept. 9.
President Trump has never wavered in his confidence in Operation Warp Speed and takes great pride in following through on promises made to the American people. This is the latest accomplishment from the Trump administration that has strived to put Americans first.
President Trump tweeted about the monumental event, “First Vaccine Administered. Congratulations USA! Congratulations WORLD!”

So much for Main Suckhole Media (MSM) predictions of President Trump failing! He got it right so they Lose! As for the Electoral College, were they in a Hurry? Seems so to me. Why not wait for the Lawsuits to complete? Won’t take that long.
