Former Vice President Joe Biden continues to find himself in hot water over his response to the coronavirus outbreak.
Biden sought to capitalize on the pandemic to boost the fortunes of his failing Presidential campaign.
But now Joe Biden just helped China by telling this giant coronavirus lie.
In a recent Medium post, former Vice President Biden repeated the Fake News Media lie that the United States is now number one in the world in coronavirus cases.
“Donald Trump is not responsible for the coronavirus, but he is responsible for failing to prepare our nation: for the months during which he continually neglected dire warnings from experts and downplayed the threat to us, and for the erratic and unacceptably slow federal response that has tragically lagged behind other countries,” Biden wrote.
“Now we have more coronavirus cases than anywhere in the world, and that is dealing body-blows to our economy and to the welfare and well-being of millions upon millions of Americans,” Biden added.
This is a lie.
While the United States has over 240,000 cases of coronavirus the idea that the United States has the most cases is an absurd lie and Biden is repeating Chinese government propaganda.
Reports out of Wuhan – where the coronavirus outbreak began – suggest that as many as 46,000 Chinese died just in that city alone.
Using a conservative one percent death rate that would mean Wuhan had over four million infections.
And that is just in one city.
The Chinese government locked down multiple cities, which means China’s true number of infections could have been in the tens of millions.
Even the U.S. Intelligence Community – who Biden says the President must believe at all times – issued a classified report finding that the Chinese government lied about the true extent of the outbreak.
Biden’s attack on Trump for the United States having the most coronavirus cases in the world was not just cheap partisan politics.
It was borderline treasonous, spreading propaganda on behalf of a hostile foreign government.
