President Trump who? That’s basically how the left has attempted to spin the false narrative that President Biden is responsible for the light at the end of the Covid-19 tunnel. It’s happened before and will surely happen again but the left has attempted to take credit for Operation Warp Speed and the fact all Americans who want the vaccine are now eligible to get it. Democrats conveniently forget when they laughed at President Trump for saying all Americans would be able to a vaccine by April 2021.
This might be the most egregious case of leftist media trying to give credit to Biden for Trump’s accomplishments. CNN’s Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger claims “everybody understands that Operation Warp Speed happened under Joe Biden.” Notice that nobody tries to correct her.
According to Townhall:
There are many more examples, but this one right here sticks out since it’s so utterly incorrect. Borger said that it was Joe Biden who launched Operation Warp Speed, that it was his initiative to get us a COVID vaccine. We now have three, but that was a Trump initiative—and everyone mocked him when he said last year that by April 2021, all Americans who are eligible for the vaccine could get a shot. Well, that happened. Even when he’s out of office, he’s owning the liberal media.
Also, no one corrected Borger when she peddled this grade-A piece of fake news. Yes, she corrected the record later, but the hand grenade was lobbed, and it went off. The damage is done. With Borger’s remarks, many Americans now probably believe the vaccine was a Democrat initiative which speaks to how these outlets know about the power of misinformation, especially when they’re driving it.
Operation Warp Speed happened under Biden. We are being gaslighted daily. They’re believing their own lies.
I’ll just take this moment to say this: Thank you, President Trump.
Gloria Borger finally issued an on-air correction clarifying that Trump is responsible for Operation Warp Speed but then said President Biden should receive credit for “getting those vaccines into your arms.” Still conveniently forgetting that the Trump administration was already vaccinating Americans and was on track to meet Biden’s goals.
