More than half a million Americans have died from COVID on President
Joe Biden's watch, the Washington Free Beacon can exclusively report
(because no one else is keeping track or even cares now that Democrats
are in power).
Details: Despite promising to "shut down the virus" as commander in
chief, Biden has presided over the deaths of 503,804 Americans from
COVID since he took office on Jan. 20, 2021. That is almost 100,000
more than the number of Americans who died from COVID under former
president Donald Trump. On average, more than 1,300 Americans have died
from COVID every day that Biden has been president.
Be smart: Our calculation is based on "the best available global
dataset on the pandemic," published and updated daily by Johns Hopkins University. It is the primary source of COVID data for both Google and
the New York Times.
Why it matters: That's a lot of dead Americans. According to his own
logic, Biden has thoroughly disqualified himself from serving as
president. In October 2020, when roughly 200,000 Americans had died
from COVID, then-candidate Biden said any leader who presided over that
many deaths "should not remain as president of the United States of
What they're saying: Not a damn thing. The media stopped caring about
COVID deaths the minute Biden was sworn into office. When Trump was in
charge, he was accused of having "blood on his hands." CNN's Brian
Stelter nodded along as some Duke professor suggested Trump "may be
responsible for many more million deaths" than Adolf Hitler, Joseph
Stalin, and Mao Zedong combined.
Meanwhile, then-governor Andrew Cuomo (D., N.Y.), a.k.a. "The Butcher
of Albany," got a $5 million book deal and became a celebrated sex
icon. Biden was praised for appointing Ron "Ebola Czar" Klain as chief
of staff and assembling the most competent administration in history
blah, blah, blah. How's that going, by the way?
Once everyone realized Biden and his team of geniuses were unable to
"shut down the virus" as promised, the pundits agreed that the pandemic
was "beyond their control." When Democrats finally realized that
forcing children to wear masks was a political loser, the media praised
them for "trying to get back to normal."
The big picture: Generally speaking, Democratic politicians and their
allies in the media have conducted themselves disgracefully since the
pandemic began. They would very much like you to forget it ever
happened and refuse to be held to the same standard to which they hold
"Two-hundred twenty-thousand Americans dead. Anyone who's responsible
for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United
States of America. "
