White House struggles to spin, explain Biden’s contradictory COVID comments

President Joe Biden campaigned on a promise to improve the Trump administration’s supposedly botched COVID-19 response plan.

More than a week into his administration, however, Biden’s messaging on the continuing public health crisis remains confusing at best, and deceptive at worst.

“Nothing we can do”

The president is keeping his communications team busy amid statements regarding containment of the virus, vaccine distribution, and other key aspects of the response, even sparking allegations that he is spreading outright falsehoods.

Biden shocked many Americans on Friday with his dire warning that there is “nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.”

His admission left many critics with the impression that his administration has no real plan for handling the current spread of COVID-19 in every corner of the nation, but he largely received a pass from the mainstream media.

According to the Associated Press, the president had merely been setting the bar low despite his prior assurances that “science” would help his team tackle the crisis in no time.

Whether or not his remarks constituted a blunder or just a convoluted talking point is open to interpretation, but the Biden administration is falling in line behind him.

“We’ve got to pull it up”

“I believe President Biden made it very clear, the plane is in a nosedive and we’ve got to pull it up,” said Xavier Becerra, the president’s nominee to lead the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Further muddying the waters was Biden’s moonshot vow on Monday in which he appeared to predict that every American who desires a COVID-19 vaccine would be lined up to receive one by the spring.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki attempted to play cleanup, asserting: “What the president’s goal is, is ensuring that there’s greater availability in the spring. But the fact is, every American is not going to be eligible in the spring.”

Nevertheless, some of the president’s top staffers are pushing back somewhat against his plan — particularly his promise to deliver 100 million vaccine doses in his first 100 days in office. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky, for example, declared that “we have to go faster.”

For much of the Biden administration, however, the focus appears to remain on trashing the Trump administration. The president has slammed his predecessor for leading a “dismal failure” of a pandemic response, while Chief of Staff Ron Klain parroted a debunked report that the Biden White House was starting from scratch in developing a vaccine distribution program.

  1. When you keep doing the same thing expecting different results that is stupid. This is the problem with Demorats they lie, cheat, and steal. Always have always will. Yet the same people keep voting for them. They have promised you the world and delivered nothing ever. Wake up!!!!!

    1. The entire Democratic Party are traitors, and need to be tried for Treason. The FBI is totally corrupt, and so is the DOJ. This breaks my heart to see my country going down the tubes into a communistic government.

  4. Bitme has no idea at all in what he is doing. The 40+ executive orders he has signed already I will guarantee you he has no idea at all what was in any of them. He is an old man with dementia that should be in a senior home with nurses changing his diaper. I hope he dies very soon.

  5. Pres Abraham said it best.
    You can fool all of the people,
    Some of the time. You can fool some of the people, all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.

  6. Unfortunately for Biden, there is a video out exposing media on a hot mike and them saying the virus is a hoax and not any worse than any flu. Shame on them for trying to put one over on us and shame on us for believing them. The put a good one over Trump’s eyes, too. Dr. Fauci has also exposed for being in Wuhan and being part of the Virus’s making. He took money for it and now is making more than a president does for it. hey all need to be hanged for duping us.

  7. But Joe Biden , when running for President you said you would have a better plain that Trump. But it turns out that you can not do any better that Trump. In Fact you are doing worse. You can not get the shots out there. You are not getting them delivered. So again you lied while you where running for the Presidents office . Its almost like you lied for the whole presidents run for office . Forty some odd Executive orders you have done, you said several months ago that Executive orders are used by Dictators . I do believe at this time you think you are a Dictator, and this is impeachable, you have broken your OATH.

  8. Typical demonrat agenda! Lie, cheat, steal, then blame everyone else. Biden is obama’s Stooge, he does what obama says. Biden is the Trojan horse to get Obama back in the White House, then he and Susan Rice will take over. Perfect plan to overthrow our government, and the ignorant voters are complicit. Just like when Obama ran twice, the know nothing voters helped him, along with rigging both elections. We need to demand both Biden and Harris be impeached and gotten out of our government! They are in office by illegitimate means!

  9. Heck they lost 20,000 shots that doesn’t make me feel like anyone of them has any idea what is going on! During the election Biden & the Dems, criticize Trump about every aspect of his handling Covid. Biden would listen to the science, what a dumb bell. Not one of the Dems. can do anything except lie, cheat, grease their own pockets at the expense of American workers & trying to intimidate Trump supporters. I am not intimidated because more & more people are seeing what kind of lying criminal cheats you are & they voted for you!!
