Mainstream media fact-checkers destroy Biden claim that Trump caused every single COVID-19 death

Mainstream media fact-checkers have apparently hit the limit for lies they will allow Joe Biden to get away with, and they hit the limit on Thursday.

After Biden claimed that Donald Trump is responsible for every single coronavirus death in the US during a CNN town hall, numerous mainstream — and highly anti-Trump — media establishments betrayed Biden by calling out the obvious lie.

Biden claimed during the course of the event:

If the president had done his job, had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive. All the people — I’m not making this up. Just look at the data. Look at the data.

This is a common argument among rabidly anti-Trump blue checks and pundits, but the Washington Post and Politico pushed back against the notion, arguing that Biden’s claim is “vastly overstated.”

Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler wrote:

Actually, Biden is making this up. There is no data to support this, even if the president had moved rapidly in January to deal with the coronavirus and been able to persuade the Chinese leadership to be more forthcoming about the situation. Even nations that have been praised for their handling of the pandemic, such as South Korea, New Zealand and Iceland, have suffered some deaths (377 in South Korea, 25 in New Zealand and 10 in Iceland).

In the United States, with 50 states run by governors, policies have varied greatly. Trump has been faulted for not articulating a national plan, but he would have had trouble persuading every governor to follow the exact same path.

Politico was blunter, writing that Biden’s remarks were “not true,” and he “vastly overstated what protections could have worked against the virus.”

Attacking Trump’s response to COVID-19 is a common trope. CNN analyst Max Boot even wrote an op-ed published by the Washington Post in March claiming that the outbreak would not have taken nearly as many lives if Hillary Clinton had won in 2016.

Though Trump’s COVID-19 response may leave something to be desired, Democrat politicians and the mainstream media curiously ignore actions on the part of numerous Democrat governors that were proven to directly increase COVID-19 deaths in their state.

It’s a great talking point for Democrats to lay the deaths of nearly 200,00 Americans at Trump’s feet, but when it comes down to providing evidence to back up the serious accusation, somehow they always come up short.

DemonRat Desperation – pure and simple. No excuse at all for these wild and outlandish accusations against the President of the USA – but a desperate ‘crat has no shame, and no respect for the American voter.

This is great. How can we get more of this in the news? I just found out that the website “antifa. com” leads to the democratic contribution page. How many others don’t know that? It says a lot that we need to know.

Trump’s response was not late. He was the FIRST Leader of any Country including the free world to close down travel and he did it in January 2020, even after Fauci had said on Jan14 that the virus was not transferable person to person.. He also authorized the epidemic section of CDC (or was it FDA) to create a planning group to set up steps to be taken in the event of a pandemic. Their report on 9/19/2019 enabled the faster invention of a vaccine. Why are these facts never mentioned?

There is no need to punish poor Biden, he himself does not understand what he is saying – he is sick. He just needs to try to explain that the champion in deaths from coronavirus is democratic New York, and this is not Trump, this is Cuomo. And, if it is accurately explained to him. then he will understand – maybe.

Th Democrats have been lying for sure for the last four years. Every day ow we see where they are lying about the Covid-19 data and that the virus has not bee as bad as they have told us. The Democrats need to pay for their sins and they should do it at the voter box …and not thru the mail either!

I still think it is the most immoral, despicable, pathetic thing any person could ever do to one man and all of the AMERICAN PEOPLE, since the beginning of time. His wife and family should be so ashamed to even show themselves in public, and the rest of those lying clowns that are in Congress should resign if they have any morals at all. But knowing them, they think it’s funny, and they have no MORALS!! REALLY SAD!

This is great, but I seem to be bad with causation. D. Trump, probably the Lord God, should have cured the Americans with a wave of his hand, but, due to his shortcomings, refused to do it. I have always thought that people were treated by specially trained people called doctors. And if a patient dies from treatment, then this is a doctor’s fault, but not as not the President of the country.

If the dam Democratic would of worked with Donald Trump in shutting down the Borders it would not of maybe so bad But they would not work with Him, Why!!!?? I believe the Democratic like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are responsible for all the deaths, NOT President TrumpOther countries Closed their borders, why did the Democratics Not allow this Country to close its borders? They wanted to blame the president to remove him from office so the Democrats can have full control over destroying this country like Nancy Pelosi did to San Francisco and she’s proud of it.

I don’t understand how some kid caught with a bag of marijuana gets thrown in jail, yet high gov’t officials in the FBI and Dept. of Justice who lied, falsified documents wiped their c-phones( all 27 of them at the same time) in an attempt to overthrow the presidency are still walking around unpunished. I might be wrong, but isn’t that called TREASON, and supposed to be punishable by death? The Dems have done absolutely NOTHING in the four years that Trump has been in office to help or improve American lives or this country. What they have done is spend MILLIONS of taxpayer dollars in an attempt to remove President Trump from office. What Nixon did in Watergate PALES in comparison to what the Dems have done. In all my years I never thought this could happen in our gov’t. What I want to know is, what did Trump do make the Dems hate him so much?

he showed them how to run a country correctly, make it and its people prosperous, put an end to the never-ending wars, dedicated his salary to charity. that made their short-comings seem HUGE. for that, they will hate him forever. remember, the great black hope and change man, said this country couldn’t be great, and that we, the people, had to get used to it. he sure blew the schiff out of that train of thought. I could go on and on, but space doesn’t permit. but hope that helped answer your question.

The Harris/Biden Administration has stated that American needs a president that is truthful to the people, and the Harris/Biden Admin. can not stop telling lies to the people that they want to vote for them.

Trump needs to start letting the police use real bullets this s*** would stop in two days because antifa are nothing but cowards they pick on little old ladies and girls it’s one thing to be a coward and start throwing stuff at somebody you know is not going to fight back but when a group of people start throwing things at the police now you have a group of nothing but cowards just like the antifa guy that got caught with smoke bombs fireworks and some kind of weapon I forgot what it was but when the cops finally caught him because he was running away of course but when they finally caught him he got in the fetal position and cried actually the sound of a bullet going by their head would be enough to scare these cowards. “BLACK GUNS MATTER “

I truly feel that the reason the demorats hate Trump is because he actually beat Hilary Clinton. She actually told Joe Hiden to never concede! So now she orders the so called “future president” on what to do? what kind of man with a backbone would take that? Because the poor man is demented and the promise the dems have given him with the presidency is too tempting to turn down. Too bad he doesn’t realize that they will boot him out as soon as possible to allow Harris to take his place. She is a power-hungry monster. Any person/woman who believes in abortion up to the time of birth is evil and wants to sanction murder. She makes me physically sick! Bless Trump, Amen
