Joe Biden has spent the last few months dodging any questions that could throw him off balance.
It went horribly for him when he decided to change tactics.
Joe Biden made a disastrous error when he decided to answer this real question.
Democratic nominee Joe Biden, who is 77 years old, has failed to make a good impression during the easy interviews he’s been doing in recent months.
He’s avoided taking any tough questions and has spent a large amount of time in his basement.
Due to the recent polls that show that Biden’s odds of winning the election are declining, his campaign has altered its approach and has Biden doing more in-person events.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy managed to get in the last question at the end of an in-person event and asked Biden about his response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“You said that you warned President Trump in January that there was going to be a pandemic and what needed to be done,” Doocy said. “If you knew that, then why were you still hosting crowded campaign rallies in March?”
Biden avoided giving an answer because the truth is that Democrats weren’t taking the coronavirus seriously at the time and Biden himself implied that Trump was xenophobic for closing the border with China.
“No, what I talked about was not what had to be done,” Biden responded. “What I said you got to take this seriously. You’ve got to insist that we have access to Wuhan. Insist we have access in China to find out for ourselves. We had 44 people from the CDC there. You cannot continue to talk about the president of China, saying he’s done a marvelous job, he’s doing a great job.”
It’s ridiculous for Biden to claim that he would have done a better job with the coronavirus because he would have been tougher on China; he only mentioned a CDC team going to China 50 days after Trump had already taken action.
Yet the day after Trump announced his China travel ban on January 31st, Biden responded:
“We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus. We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency.”
Biden then went on to mistakenly claim that he was the first person to call for using the Defense Production Act when his call came after Trump announced his plans to use it.
While Democrats claim that they would have handled the coronavirus much better than Trump, they can’t show a precise policy that would actually have made a difference and the Democratic governors didn’t have better coronavirus outcomes.
