After four years of having an Adult for President, we now have this? Call 911. I don’t know what that was last night, but for a few minutes, I was wondering if I fell asleep and was dreaming. First here’s the Speech.
I must admit I couldn’t watch it a second time. I’m still in shock from the live telecast yesterday. It’s as if the man had no clue about what’s happened. He refuses to take responsibility for leaving no Respirators or masks when He along with Obama left office.
Our rating: True
We rate this claim TRUE because it is supported by our research. There is no indication that the Obama administration took significant steps to replenish the supply of N95 masks in the Strategic National Stockpile after it was depleted from repeated crises. Calls for action came from experts at the time concerned for the country’s ability to respond to future serious pandemics. Such recommendations were, for whatever reason, not heeded.

Joe Biden gave no credit to all the folks who the past year have been doing an awesome job. These folks in the Trump administration ( under the direction of President Trump and Vice President Pence ) saved millions of lives. Even some of the folks in the Biden administration ( including the fauch ) have said what a success Operation Warp Speed has been and it’s still being used.
Biden and Harris both said they were left with a mess and no vaccine or plans. Oh really?
Andy Slavitt, a senior adviser to the White House’s Covid team, on Thursday credited the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed for spurring the development of a Covid vaccine at an unprecedented pace.
“We’re grateful for the work that came before us and are doing the best we can to continue it and accelerate it,” Slavitt said on Fox News. “I would absolutely tip my hat. … The Trump administration made sure that we got in record time a vaccine up and out. That’s a great thing and it’s something we should all be excited about.”
Below are videos who show President Trump and Operation Warp Speed getting the credit. Biden mentioned the three vaccines. What he left out was they were all developed under the Trump administration.
