Trump joins critics mocking Biden over claim that US had no COVID-19 vaccine before he took office

President Joe Biden has a lengthy history of making baffling gaffes, but one recent claim is raising eyebrows for its obvious inaccuracy.

According to Fox News, the president claimed during a recent CNN town hall event that no COVID-19 vaccine existed prior to his inauguration — despite the fact that he received a shot about a month before that date.

“Before he came into office”

Former President Donald Trump was among the many critics who took issue with Biden’s claim, speculating that it could be evidence of his successor’s cognitive decline.

“I saw that he said there was no vaccine when he came into office, and yet he got a shot before he came into office,” Trump told Newsmax TV host Greg Kelly during an interview on Wednesday.

The ex-president went on to note that his administration announced the development of an effective inoculation “in early November” — long after significant progress toward that end had been made

“We were giving millions of shots and millions of doses,” Trump said of the situation ahead of Biden’s inauguration.

In response to the current president’s bewildering comment, Trump added: “So he’s either not telling a truth, or he’s mentally gone — one or the other. Could he be joking? Because, frankly, that was a very dumb statement.”

“Getting lit up”

Apparently taking some satisfaction in seeing even left-wing figures call Biden out on the issue, Trump remarked that his successor is “being killed on that whole thing,” adding that “even the haters” are acknowledging that he was still president when the vaccine was announced.

“He is getting lit up on that one,” Trump said of Biden.

Of course, there is no shortage of Biden gaffes or misstatements, including within the recent town hall. Another controversial comment came when he seemed to suggest minority groups are being vaccinated at lower rates than white Americans because they struggle to use the internet.

“Not everybody in the community — in the Hispanic and the African American community, particularly in rural areas that are distant and/or inner-city districts — know how to use — know how to get online to determine how to get in line for that COVID vaccination at the Walgreens or at the particular store,” Biden alleged.

In a separate event earlier this month, the president ruffled some feathers by asking an Iowa nurse if she was a college freshman, going on to conclude that “doctors let you live, nurses make you want to live.”

  1. Amazing the narrative that comes from the democrats! That President Trump was able to get the vaccines to market in about 8-9 MONTHS when creation of a vaccine normally takes 4-5 YEARS, is nothing short of a miracle and intense phenomenal creativity and intelligence by Trump. His ability to understand and cut to the chase in so many areas is astounding….and anyone who criticizes him is just either dishonest or a few pancakes short of a stack!

    1. When Biden says those hideous lies on the air all it does is make us correct that he is an outlandish total liar and he does it a lot…Hey Joey your lies are fooling no one…Just makes the people who work with you n for you look bad…try to be truthful about the big stuff such as the vaccine and the shots…you ene got the shot before you took office how do you do that if Trump hadn’t already done all the hard work for you….a thank you to Trump is what you need to do…n quit the lying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. First of all you are the censure culture.Typical democrat policy.Is that to harsh oh I’m so sorry.Or part of the fake news like cnn.msnbc ,nbc abc .I don’t watch any news but fox and some of them are turning fake news reporters.

    1. I stopped watching fox as well. They are becoming more and more liberal. I read my news on net. I do not watch any of them on TV. If we all stopped watching the news on TV and let their ratings plummet then maybe we could start a new start with the news.

  4. MAN, I can’t wait for the day to come that we all get the news that Bitme is deceased. The sooner the better. He has only been in Office for 1 month and look at the damage he has already doing. He is a total slimball.

  5. Joe Biden should be in a nursing home not talking to a nurse his mind is not really all there he is a shell not a president he is the joke of the communist party in communist DC as in Democratic Communist Washington look at the Capital razor wire walls Castro would feel right at home takeover of America is complete

  6. Maybe he just wanted to given his son-in-law the credit because his company is in charge of distributing the vaccine and it is another Biden question to answer.

  7. Ole Joe he has spent a life time in politics and his record is outstanding he should get the metal of lieing all his politicial life time. Tell me this, what use is a man who lies on just about everything, the Democratic party should be proud.

  8. I don’t think Joe knows there was a United States before he was elected so he doesn’t know about 9-11. I think it’s elder abuse to have him in office. Is Jill so shallow that she’d get in the white house at any cost? She needs to commit him, and soon!

  9. Can Biden be impeached for sheer stupidity? We know he’s crooked beyond belief and his conduct around women is very suspect, he has NO redeeming qualities in addition to being a two faced liar, and the list goes on but 80 some million votes for him? Clearly a fixed election for a commie puppet and Chinese plant to ruin America- why can’t he be impeached before we decide to not follow his idiotic changes?
