      Biden couldn't even do anything right when the swine flu hit, and remember this? This is the idiot the easily manipulated marionettes have been told to vote for.

      " The president issued a travel ban from China on Jan. 31 — a leadership decision Biden and others slammed as "xenophobic."

      The day following the China travel ban, Biden declared, "We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering," in a tweet responding to the president’s action.

      Here is the truth, Biden would have allowed travel from China to continue during the pandemic thereby allowing thousands of Chinese including COVID-19 positive individuals into the U.S.

      Months later, Biden reversed his view of the China travel ban on April 3 — finally recognizing the president’s wisdom.

      Biden’s reversal is an acknowledgment he was dead wrong with his early criticism of President Trump and the two month delay would have resulted in many more deaths — far more than the estimate he touts on the campaign trail.

      Moreover, the 47-year career-politician’s ignorance of infectious disease epidemiology is staggering. This was clearly evident in his attack on the China travel ban.

      Biden’s tweet emphasized the need to follow the science, yet he's clueless when it comes to science.

      The best way to stop an epidemic is to isolate those with the disease from spreading it to others — that’s what the China travel ban did — a decision Biden slammed.

      Additionally, Biden’s knee jerk response of "xenophobia," was based on leading with race card politics — not science.

      As far as President Trump’s concern about not wanting to panic the public, Biden also said, "It’s not a time to panic about coronavirus," at a February campaign event in South Carolina.

      Biden’s criticism of travel bans is not limited to China.

      Barack Obama's former vice president also blasted President Trump’s decision to halt travel from Europe.

      Shortly after President Trump made the call to stop travel from Europe, Biden issued a critical comment in a tweet, "A wall will not stop the coronavirus. Banning all travel from Europe — or any other part of the world — will not stop it. This disease could impact every nation and any person on the planet — and we need a plan to combat it."

      Again, Biden is repeating his gross ignorance of basic infectious disease epidemiology.

      President Trump’s decisions to issue bans with respect to travel from both China and Europe was backed by Dr. Anthony Fauci.

      Dr. Fauci described the China ban as "a very smart move," and the ban on travel from Europe, was "ahead of the curve."

      Fauci also disputed Bob Woodward’s claim that the president was downplaying the pandemic risk. Fauci even said, "I didn’t get any sense that he was distorting anything. In my discussions with him, they were always straightforward about the concerns that we had."

      Joe Biden is trying his best to exploit the COVID-19 pandemic by twisting his record on the virus. But the truth is, is that his open border strategy to address a pandemic is a recipe for disaster."

      Just how ignorant are you? Those far more medically educated than you say with our increased world population pandemics will be our future. It certainly will not end nor will it go away!

          The ostrich with it's head in the sand? Why yes, that would be you. Wake up we are officially in a depression (recession) and the tsunami is coming! This will be far worse than the last depression (recession) and now we add regular pandemics to the mix. Also what looks like a civil war in America.

          Hopefully you are prepared, ignoring the truth is a sure way to make sure you cease to exist at all.

            First off, it's a political cartoon.
            Second, if you don't like something, just turn the page, hit the clicker, or turn the channel.

                That's right the freedom of speech is a very valued and precious right we have! We will also MAGA and as for audit-I'm sure there are folks and certain government entities that need to be audited. Actually I believe it's going on right now. It's known as "draining the swamp" from top officials all the way down to the local levels of government. So watch out if you fall into that category!
