Biden has been nothing but divisive in his reaction to this crises. that is the exact opposite of how a leader behaves. Further proof of his utter incompetence.
The leftist national media incessantly reports that the spread of the coronavirus is, well, President Trump’s fault. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, always good for the most incendiary and least helpful comments in any difficult situation, said on Sunday, “[T]he president — his denial at the beginning was deadly.”
Then in Joe Biden’s latest effort to be relevant, his campaign has released an ad attacking President Trump for not being sufficiently responsive to the threats of the coronavirus from the “beginning.”
Here is a key fact: In the beginning, China lied. People died. Although the first case of the coronavirus was reported in Wuhan, China in early December 2019, the Chinese authorities continued through January 2020 to downplay the potential for the disease to spread.
The World Health Organization (WHO) reinforced China’s falsehoods, saying on Jan. 14 that “Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in Wuhan, China.” This was five to six weeks after the opposite was confirmed to be the case in Wuhan.Chronology: Trump Was On Top Of Coronavirus While Biden Mocked
Joe Biden continues to show why he would be a disaster for this country if he were to be elected President. He has not yet gotten the memo that this is not a partisan virus that cares who s President. It is an attack on the world, and the world must unite against it. Even Presidential candidates. That is what leaders do.
Former Vice President Joe Biden on Friday slammed President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak, urging the Republican incumbent to “stop swerving between overpromising, buck-passing, and start delivering protection to our people.”
The all-but-certain Democratic presidential nominee – in a conference call with political reporters – also said that as early as Monday he hopes to be holding near-daily briefings regarding the pandemic that’s swept across the nation, which could serve as a political counterbalance to the daily briefings the president and government officials have been giving the past week from the White House.

“I want to be in daily or least in significant contact with the American people and communicate what I would be doing, what I think we should be doing, and how we should be doing it,” Biden emphasized.
“Hopefully by Monday we’re going to be in a very different place in terms of the ability to be in communications with all of you,” Biden explained.
The president’s reelection team – responding to Biden – defended the president’s actions, with campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh saying that Trump “is leading an unprecedented mobilization of America against the coronavirus and all Joe Biden can offer is ineffective partisan sniping from the sidelines.”Democracy 2020 Digest: Biden, blasting Trump, vows dueling daily briefing during coronavirus crisis | Fox News
I have to hand it Joe, he looked almost coherent last night, at least in his personal demeanor. That coherence did not extend to his proposed policy objectives but then neither did Bernie’s. The Left is divided against itself. Will that house be able to stand? Stay tuned.
Joe Biden is ahead in the Democratic Party presidential race by 150 delegates and is well on his way to winning the 1,991 necessary to secure the nomination. And while the establishment rallies around Joe Biden, many Bernie Sanders supporters — the vanguard of the revolution — are refusing the call for unity.
This isn’t surprising. In 2016, fully 12 percent of Sanders voters ended up voting for Donald Trump. It’s estimated that another 5 percent of Sanders voters didn’t vote at all in the general election. Certainly, there were other factors to consider, but a good argument can be made — especially in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania — that defections from Bernie Sanders to Donald Trump cost Hillary Clinton those states and the election.
So what are Bernie Bros going to do in 2020 if Sanders, as expected, loses to Biden?
“If we lose to Trump then hopefully within the next four years maybe an AOC or Rashida Tlaib would be able to run,” [19-year-old student Ekene] Okonkwo said, referring to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and another progressive politician who has gained popularity in the last two years. “Maybe there would be a better chance to save the planet.”
Okonkwo is not alone in her unequivocal and uncompromising support for Sanders. She is part of a loosely connected but vocal group, sometimes uniting under hashtags like #BernieorBust or #NeverBiden who say they will not vote for Biden if he wins the nomination. While it’s nearly impossible to know how large the group is, hundreds of people have shared this sentiment, including progressive political candidates.Bernie Bros Will Reject Biden in the General Election
Is it over? Is Joe the one? Is Bernie out of it? There is no question that the rank and file Democrats resoundingly rejected Socialism and the Bernie Bros in yesterday’s primaries. But was it because they see Joe as the leader of the Party who is going to lead the Democrats to victory in November? Or is it a combination of disenchantment with the socialist agenda and the very youthful base of Sanders’ support being too lazy to get out of the house and vote? We can debate this, but it is a matter of opinion, one that will ultimately be resolved in November.
History didn’t repeat itself in Michigan for Bernie Sanders. And because of that, the populist U.S. senator from Vermont had an extremely disappointing evening on “Super Tuesday II” — and now faces daunting delegate math that leaves him slipping swiftly out of reach of the Democratic presidential nomination. Just four years ago, it was in Michigan where Sanders pulled off a historic upset over eventual nominee Hillary Clinton. At the time, the victory kept his White House bid alive. Fast forward four years later and Sanders – down in the public opinion polls by double digits once again in the Great Lake State – was convincingly defeated by former Vice President Joe Biden. Four years ago Sanders nearly topped Clinton in Missouri. This time around he lost the state by a nearly 2-to-1 margin to Biden. And the former vice president trounced Sanders in Mississippi and won in Idaho as well. Sanders – who won a landslide victory in the 2016 Washington state caucuses – was neck and neck with Biden in the state’s 2020 primary with just over two-thirds of the vote counted. Biden initially had the slight edge in Idaho – with more than three-quarters of the vote counted — and was eventually declared the winner. Sanders was up in North Dakota’s caucuses, where only 14 delegates were up for grabs. Undisputed front-runner Biden’s blockbuster performance boosted his lead in the all-important race for presidential convention delegates and further cemented his status as the undisputed front-runner for the Democratic nomination. And Biden’s strong performance presented Sanders with a difficult choice to make on whether to continue his White House bid. In a remarkable and uncharacteristic move, Sanders opted not to deliver a primary night address, passing on the opportunity to speak to a national audience.Biden’s ‘Joe-mentum’ grows as Dem front-runner sweeps Midwest contests, eyes Sanders knockout | Fox News
Things are unraveling quickly for the Biden crime family. The only thing that can save them is if Crazy Uncle Joe wins the white house and is able to quash these investigations. but Joe Biden is looking less and less like he is going to be able to adequately endure the rigors of the campaign, much less the Presidency itself. The Bidens and the Democrats are desperate. And desperate people do desperate things. It will be interesting to see how they attempt weasel and steal and lie their way to the November election.
It seems that former Vice President Joe Biden might have some splainin’ to do. Politico published a report on Monday revealing that his brother, James Biden, may have “fraudulently transferred funds” from a hospital and also taken funds as a “personal loan” that he has not yet repaid. The FBI raided Americor Health hospital on January 20 amid suspicions of illegal activities involving members of Biden’s family. It appears they may have found evidence of illicit business dealings in connection to the former vice president’s career as a government official. After the raid, two medical firms who had business relationships with James Biden stated in civil court proceedings that they possessed evidence that his transfer of funds from Americore was “outside of the ordinary course of business.” Politico reports that this case might represent, “potential pitfalls for the former vice president”Politico Uncovers Allegations Of Suspicious Business Dealings Involving Joe Biden’s Brother
I keep hearing from Pelosi and Schumer how the President’s reaction to has been inadequate, not enough, focused on the wrong things, etc., so my question would be how would a Democrat President handle such a crises. Well fortunately-or unfortunately for those who got unneccesarily sick and those who died-we have an example of just how a Democrat responds to such a heath emergency.
