The data must be kept with Levine’s and Wolf’s secret granular data which is with the data on nursing home deaths that is still missing.
To hear Democratic nominee Joe Biden tell it, not only was every single coronavirus death in America preventable, but it’s President Trump’s fault that folks died from the disease — not China, but the president of the United States.
Biden spoke the whopper of a lie during a CNN town hall Thursday night, which is either an indication of how desperate Democrats are or how little respect they have for the intelligence of voters. Or, just the latest sign that concerns about his grasp on reality are not all that overblown.
“If the president had done his job, had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive,” Biden said. “All the people — I’m not making this up. Just look at the data. Look at the data.”
(New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo [and PA Gov. Tom Wolf] may beg to differ, given his disastrous order forcing nursing homes to take in coronavirus patients.)
While Trump is immediately fact-checked by moderators in similar settings, who even interrupt him to do so, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper stood there like a toad on a stool and said nothing.
Even the fact-checkers at the Washington Post called it a lie:
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.
