While the Biden administration has touted itself for maintaining the truth, it seems Democrats were caught up in their own lie. Joe Biden’s false statements about coronavirus vaccines are now sparking criticism even amongst mainstream media outlets.
According to an AP Fact-Check Thursday, Biden falsely claimed the U.S. vaccinated almost 3 million people in one day last week. Biden aide Andy Slavitt echoed the false claims that same day.
“On Saturday, we set an all-time, single-day record: nearly 3 million Americans vaccinated,” he claimed. “A pace seen nowhere else in the world.” However, the CDC reported the actual number is closer to 1.5 million.
Biden officials were also caught lying about vaccinating the elderly. They claimed 60 percent of the demographic had received the vaccine.
“In terms of protecting the most vulnerable, our core duty as a nation, when we came into office 8 percent of people over 65 were vaccinated,” Slavitt stated. “Today, 60 percent are vaccinated and, according to the CDC’s new guidance, vaccinated parents can now visit and hug their grandchildren.”
In reality, only 31 percent of Americans aged 64 and older are fully-vaccinated. This comes as Biden tried to take the credit for developing vaccines away from President Trump who has already slammed Biden for refusing to acknowledge those efforts.
If President Biden had complimented the Trump administration for developing the Covid vaccine in lightning fast time that would have been magnanimous.
But Biden can’t do that because he’s allowing himself to be held hostage by progressive loons.

President Trump maintained that vaccines are only readily available because of his administration’s Operation Warp Speed. He noted, Americans would not have been able to get a vaccine for up to five years had it not been for the administration’s efforts.
