During the 2020 Presidential Election, Joe Biden campaigned on a promise to solve the COVID pandemic once and for all.
And throughout his first four months in office, the media has certainly attempted to give him credit for slowing the spread of the virus.
However, Biden may not deserve any credit, as a new report has revealed that he and Kamala Harris have yet to participate in weekly COVID briefings.
When the COVID pandemic began last year, the Trump administration began holding a weekly COVID briefing via conference call with Governors from all 50 states every Tuesday to coordinate federal and state responses to the pandemic.
In his role as the head of the White House COVID task force, Vice President Pence led all but one of the 40 briefings held by the Trump administration, and President Trump was a regular presence on the calls, as well.
But while the weekly calls have continued under the Biden administration, a report from RealClearPolitics has revealed that neither Joe Biden or Kamala Harris have actually taken part in any of the calls through their first four months in office.
According to Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts, “President Biden hasn’t been on any of them.”
Ricketts also told RealClearPolitics that while Harris did quickly pop onto one call “that was for about five minutes and she didn’t take any questions.”
Needless to say, the nation’s Governors are beyond frustrated by this stark contrast to the Trump administration.
“It’s been a real frustration, I think it’s safe to say, for all 50 Governors,” New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu said.
“It would go a long way if the President would just get on the phone, or the Vice President would get on the phone and take questions,” Governor Sununu continued. “Allow us to ask the folks in charge questions.”
To make matters even worse, RealClearPolitics also reported that New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo, not the White House, now leads the calls.
And yes, that is the same Andrew Cuomo who forced nursing homes to accept COVID-positive patients and then attempted to cover up the actual number of deaths his policy caused, is currently up to his eyeballs in sexual misconduct allegations, and has over 150 New York politicians calling for his resignation.
Biden and Harris’ decision to abdicate their responsibility to lead the coordination of federal and state COVID responses shouldn’t come as a surprise, of course.
Outside of COVID, Biden’s southern border crisis is the second biggest issue currently facing the nation, and Biden chose to pass the responsibility of dealing with that to Harris who has absolutely refused to address the actual issue, much less visit the border for herself.
While there are millions of Americans suffering from the issues COVID has caused our nation, the President and Vice President are asleep at the wheel.
They’re much more interested in covertly ramming through the Green New Deal, enacting gun control, weakening America’s military, bowing down to China, packing the Supreme Court with far-left justices, expanding the welfare state, and claiming a police officer who saved a young black woman from being stabbed to death is a racist murderer.
Obviously, Biden and Harris are way too busy to worry about COVID – even if they repeatedly painted it as a virus that would kill us all unless they were elected.
Fortunately, though, they were elected, so problem solved.
Nothing to see here.
