Joe Biden Claps Back at Lara Trump Over Coronavirus Comments: ‘She Doesn’t Know What She’s Talking About



Former Vice President Joe Biden rebuked Lara Trump’s assertion that had he been president when the coronavirus pandemic started, there would be 2 million Americans dead rather than the 218,000 who have died on President Donald Trump’s watch.

The ex-VP gave several local interviews on Friday, including to Roop Raj of Detroit’s WJBK Fox 2. During the interview, Raj related the comments from Mrs. Trump — daughter-in-law and senior campaign adviser to Donald Trump — that she’d made in an earlier interview with Raj.

“Lara Trump said to me that ‘If Mr. Biden was in office the first 6 months, the way it was treated with the swine flu, we would have had 2 million dead,’ if you were in charge,” Raj told Biden.

First of all, she’s a lovely lady, but she doesn’t know what she’s talking about,” Biden said. “We lost 15,000 people to swine flu, we did not shut down any businesses, nothing, nothing happened in terms of the economy.:

And what happened is in this case, I laid out as early as the beginning of February that this was a crisis,” he continued. “We left behind for the president a pandemic office because we learned from this swine flew and other things that had happened, that we need to be prepared for viruses that come from abroad, you couldn’t build a wall to stop it.”

He went on to describe other elements of Trump’s response ...“Remember what he said? I take no responsibility, it’s not my responsibility.”

3. Given that Joe comes from Scranton, I suspect that ...

“She’s a lovely lady” is equivalent to “bless her little heart.”

It felt that way to me, in any event.

4. Joe understood from the get-go that this election would turn on credibility because

that is the game Trump has played with his HOAX! Fake News! and alternative reality.

Biden and his campaign have played this masterfully without being drawn into a firestorm over truth.

Joe is experienced and far smarter than he was ever given credit for.

7. K & R THIS ⬆️

"Biden and his campaign have played this masterfully without being drawn into a firestorm over truth.

He's playing this end game just as he did in the Primary.
The way he plays his stealth-like strategy is quite a thing to behold!

And you know what, THAT is the strategy Joe Biden has always used on his opponants throughout his Senate career as well.

That's why he is respected as a successful negotiator..even from 'across the aisle'.

Recalling how he humiliated Paul Ryan in a debate.


Because Joe knows what he's talking about & never comes dressed up in bullshit.

Biden is a just a joy to watch..
👍💙
