If Biden is giving Trump credit for the vaccines –mistake new edit
Edit: the Forbes headline is misleading. The Biden did give Trump props for taking the vaccine not for making it happen. I apologize for getting it wrong. However, the joke below still is included because I think it is funny.
I believe it is just about to become a radioactive wasteland.
The reason that this sudden praise is happening:
A) the vaccine is going to be quietly shelved with no explanation or excuses
B) they are going to admit ADE is a thing and stop vaccines
C) they are going to say that out of an abundance of caution they are going to suspend vaccines until the vaccines are ensured to be super safe
D) None of the above … please give your own answer.
I think that something is definitely coming out and they are getting ahead of it to blame 45. We saw this with them admitting and allowing speculations about the WIV lab leak theory just before Fauchi’s emails came out, even with the redactions.
That being said I think 45 is to blame for a good portion of the mess this is becoming:
2017-Signs EUA legislation paving the way for untested drugs.
2020-Operation Warp speed
2020-His FDA approves mRNA vaccines
2020-Vaccines start under his administration
I always thought that it would be a win for 46. If things went bad he could blame 45, if things went good then he could claim that the vaccines were his doing.
Yeah, that’s disconcerting Friedrichs_teeth! I don’t think “giving credit” to Trump was done out of a sudden generosity of spirit. That’s not their MO. This was a calculated move IMO.
I agree with your first statement, that their statement is an indicator that they anticipate the vaccine landscape is about to go radioactive, and so they are quickly trying to toss that radioactive hot potato back to to Trump.
I should have checked before posting-sorry
I said: 2017-Signs EUA legislation paving the way for untested drugs.
In actuality the FDA finalized their guidance on Jan 16, 2017 before 45 took office.
Hmm, I agree with whoknew79 – while the Forbes article definitely made it look like the praise came from the Biden Admin, and that it was new – it really kind of wasn’t. So this pivot wasn’t what I thought it was, from just reading the article without listening to the actual video interview.
I do think if a pivot takes place, then that’s definitely a sign. We are not there yet though. Thanks for the correction.
My fault for not reading it carefully enough, and/or not watching the interview.
No blame accrues to the original poster. I just took it too seriously!
Good insights. I am looking forward to see whether they just continue to censor people asking inconvenient questions or if they drop that. My guess is the former. It is hard to give up that much power.
I disagree. I read the story and watched the interview on youtube.com.
Kate Bedingfield was not giving Trump credit for the vaccines. She was appealing to Trump supporters by letting them know that Trump was vaccinated. She said, “One thing that I would point out, Mika, is that President Trump himself has gotten vaccinated. He was one of the earliest actually to get the vaccine…” as Mika disapprovingly shakes her head, “…and has said so to his supporters and that’s great. ”
And that’s it. Nothing more about Trump.
Biden, himself, never had anything to do with this.
I agree that if it was true that Biden gave Trump credit for the vaccines, then this would have been a BIG deal. I would be very worried if that happened., but it didn’t.
Please consider revising your post or deleting the whole thing. It is important not to spread misinformation. Way more people will read the initial post than will read this response.
Good point. I will see what I can do. The headline from Forbes is still significant though. And my post was a joke.
The Forbes’ headline was “White House Gives Rare Praise To Trump For Endorsing Coronavirus Vaccines”
The emphasis is mine.
I had no idea this was a joke. I’m sorry. Now, I feel like I was too harsh.
No worries. I appreciate the catch.
