WaPo gives Kamala Harris just ‘two Pinocchios’ for lying about Trump’s vaccine distribution plans

The mainstream media’s double standard was on full display again this week.

The Washington Post’s so-called “Fact Checker” has decided to give Vice President Kamala Harris only “two Pinocchios” for a claim she made about coronavirus vaccinations that is a flat-out lie. 

Background

What the Washington Post was fact-checking was a claim that Vice President Harris recently made during an interview with Axios for its HBO show.

The exchange occurred between Harris and Mike Allen, an Axios reporter and co-founder of the media outlet. Harris and Allen were talking about the coronavirus vaccination plan left by the Trump administration to the Biden administration. What Harris claimed was that the Trump administration failed to leave such a plan.

“There was no national strategy or plan for vaccinations,” Harris said. “We were leaving it to the states and local leaders to try and figure it out. And so in many ways, we are starting from scratch on something that’s been raging for almost an entire year.”

Fauci pushes back

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the infectious diseases expert who was a member of the Trump administration’s coronavirus taskforce team and is now the Biden administration’s chief medical adviser, has made it clear that he did not approve of many of the decisions that the Trump administration made concerning the coronavirus.

But, Fauci has nonetheless publicly come out against the false notion that the Biden administration is “starting from scratch,” as suggested by Harris and others in the Biden administration.

Last month, Fauci told CNN that the Biden administration “certainly [is] not starting from scratch because there is activity going on in the distribution.”

In other words, Harris lied.

Despite this fact, the Washington Post Fact Checker this week only gave Harris’s claim “two Pinocchios.” This represents “significant omissions and/or exaggerations” and possibly “some factual error may be involved but not necessarily.”

The s0-called Fact Checker justified this by claiming that the Trump administration had more of a “state-centric” as opposed to a “top-down” approach, and so Harris wasn’t completely wrong in saying that there was “no national strategy.” The so-called Fact Checker, however, agreed that Harris probably should not have said that the Biden administration is “starting from scratch.”

“Biden administration officials may be proud of what they have accomplished, but they shouldn’t suggest that nothing was in place when they walked in the door,” the outlet writes. “They have built on an existing structure left behind by the Trump team. Harris modified her comment by saying ‘in many ways,’ but that’s not quite enough to avoid Pinocchios. She earns Two.”

What a joke.

    1. The Traitors Joe and Kampala both deserve to be censured by congress for these gross lies and for misinformung the public. The plans President Trump in operation for combating Covid were already exceeding what Joe set as his 100 day goals and both of the Traitors already had taken the vaccine before they fraudulently took the oath of office. WaPo deserves to give themselves Pinocchios for also misleading the public.

    1. You are right; every time they open their mouths is a LIE. At this point I sincerely think they are unable to speak the Truth. EVER!

  2. All Cumala does is lie so get use to it. China-Joe plagiarizes and Cumala is learning well from him. As for WaPo giving Cumala two Pinocchio‘s, if they had given her the five she deserved regarding a COVID plan, it would have looked like Willie Brown still in her mouth.

  3. Take it from a norther Californian she do make up story’s and a user she lied during one of the debates had to ride in the back of the bus going to grade school because It was Berkeley Cal most liberal city in the world and never happen I know I live there. Her mother and father divorced but both are doctors working at Stanford. After she received her law degree she worked in alameda cal in the district attorney’s office till she met mayor Willie Brown with a five year mistress to Willie she was given district attorney of Liberal San Francisco then attorney general of California. Look out JB she would like to be president.

    1. It was K.Harris who told rioters Not to Stop and bailed them Antifa and blm so they could riot at the Capitol and say that it was trump supports. Nancy Pelosi did say that Demorats are above the Law’s.😡

  4. First of all she is a born liar! She couldn’t tell the truth if her life depended on it. Everybody knows that President Trump along with Dr. Fouci got the vaccine movement going and was giving vaccines before Sick Joe was even in the house. When Joe said he had full credit for having the vaccine I shrugged it off and He knew does not what he says! With all his gaffes! With having Dementia. But Harris is another matter. Nobody even likes her! When she went to her hometown there were two people standing along the road with a few camera men. Plus when she got out of the first race she had 2% of the people. She’s very ignorant and not a smart women at all. She is too busy lying. You think it’s bad now With sniffing Joe, if she becomes President Our Country will go to h— sooner then it would with Joey. We are definitely switching over. Too ashamed of the new administration.

  5. You are right; every time they open their mouths is a LIE. At this point I sincerely think they are unable to speak the Truth. EVER!

  6. Both Joey and Kamala are insidious liars about many things but the worst is about Covid 19 and the vaccine….is anyone going to hold this cartoon group responsible for their daily rotten LIES

  7. This just shows you how biased and unobjective the WaPo is. You just cannot believe anything they say. If you choose to believe, you are doing yourself a great disservice.

  8. Harris and Biden both should be impeached A.S.A.P. They are both lying to the American people all of the time about everything.

  9. 1st and foremost I feel she should be drug tested daily, she consistently appears to be high at almost every interview, just saying!! 2nd, both her and Joe, if their lips are moving, they are lying. What they are doing to this great country is a disgrace and we’re only 5 weeks into their administration. If they keep going like they are there will be nothing left to salvage in 4 years. Even people who voted for them are shaking their heads…

  10. If their party affiliate is Democrat then they do not speak the truth because they have no clue what truth is all, they know how to do is lie & blame Trump!!
    Joe Biden we lost 2 million vaccines while I was President it was Trumps fault. what IDIOTS!
