Biden hasn’t been in public much since he took office. Many, myself included, were starting to wonder if he would ever address the American people. He did finally step out a few days ago to offer a bit of doom and gloom regarding the COVID-19 crisis.
My takeaways, starting with his statements/ideas:
“A year ago, we were hit with a virus that was met with silence and spread unchecked, denials for days, weeks, then months.”
- If, by silence, you are accusing President Trump of doing nothing, then you are boldly lying. He moved with far more assurance than the current administration is moving. (But don’t you love how the first thing out of his mouth is an accusation against Trump?)
“That led to more deaths, more infections, more stress, and more loneliness.”
- For those who are paying attention, he has just accused President Trump of being a murderer.
“While it was different for everyone, we all lost something — a collective suffering, a collective sacrifice, a year filled with the loss of life and the loss of living for all of us.”
- Finally, something I can agree with! But I would add that it didn’t have to be that way, at least the collective sacrifice part. I think they went w-a-y overboard with what was demanded of us. . .but that’s just me.
“As I’ve told you before, I carry a card in my pocket with the number of Americans who have died from COVID to date.”
- Call me jaded, but I suspect he’s doing this so he can say to the American people, “Your former president has killed 527,726 people with his neglect.”
“You know, you’ve often heard me say before, I talk about the longest walk any parent can make is up a short flight of stairs to his child’s bedroom to say, I’m sorry, but I lost my job, I can’t be here anymore. Like my dad told me when he lost his job in Scranton. So many of you have had to make that same walk this past year.”
- Joe, I have a question for you: If you hate seeing people lose their jobs so much, why did you kill off multiplied thousands of jobs on your first day in office. . .and at such a precarious time?
“It’s the details of life that matter the most, and we miss those details, the big details and the small moments, weddings, birthdays, graduations, all of the things that needed to happen but didn’t.”
“COVID-19 is the reason we’re all turning against each other.”
- Um, no. We’re knee-jerking because we’re being forced to do things we don’t agree with.
“We have a common purpose.”
- No. No, we don’t. Leftists have one purpose (to destroy those of us on the Right). And conservatives are fighting like maniacs to save the country they love from the corruption they see evidenced on a daily, if not hourly, basis.
“You are owed the truth.”
- I actually agree with him on this. Could we start with the truth about the 2020 Presidential election, please?
“Look, we know what we need to do to beat this virus. Tell the truth. Follow the scientists and the science. Work together. Put trust and faith in our government to fulfill its most important function, which is protecting the American people.
- So many things to address here. “Tell the truth” is another dig at Trump, who (in Joe’s estimation) didn’t follow the science. Never mind the fact that Fauci was advising Trump then and he’s still advising Biden now. The “Orange Man Bad” theme never gets old, does it? Also, “work together?” Seriously? Isn’t that what we’ve been doing for 365 days? And “put trust and faith in our government?” You lost me completely with those words, Joe. I’ll never—no matter how long I live—put my trust in government.
