(FreedomJournal.Org)- Here’s another suggestion from Joe Biden’s Wacky Ideas Machine: he thinks nobody but Dr. Anthony Fauci should speak at the daily White House press briefings.
That’s right. Despite Donald Trump being the president of the United States, despite an entire Coronavirus Task Force existing and working together to protect the United States, and despite the duty that American politicians have to inform the public, Joe Biden thinks everyone but Fauci should be quiet.
During an NBC News interview on Monday, former Vice president Joe Biden said he believed the “only person” the American people should listen to about he coronavirus is Dr. Fauci.
Biden no doubt wants Trump to be seen less during the briefings, as it may create an image of him being distant and uncaring, but in making the claim he cast aside Dr. Deborah Birx, another (female!) expert on the panel who regularly updates the people about the progress of the virus and the government’s response.
Host Charles Benson also took the opportunity to ask Biden how he thinks the upcoming Democratic National Convention might go down in Milwaukee.
“The host committee has had to lay off some folks,” Benson said. “Businesses, restaurants, hotels, they are in much need of this economic boost that would come from a convention. What is realistic? Is a virtual convention the most realistic?”
“It’s hard to tell,” Biden responded. “We’ve got to follow the science. I very much, as any candidate would, want to have an actual convention, be in a position where in the middle of August we are able to actually have a convention where people show up and you have businesses being able to open up more than they are now. But it requires the president to take action.”
Obviously, Biden didn’t give any specific detail about what he means by “action.” President Donald Trump assembled his White House Coronavirus Task Force on the same day that the World Health Organization declared the virus a global pandemic, and has taken measures since then to ensure the states are well-equipped to fight the virus.
Doesn’t this all just scream of yet another effort to get Trump out of the way so Biden can pretend to be an expert?
Where was Biden’s expertise when he was vice president, overseeing the spread of Swine Flu in 2009 and Ebola in 2014?
