Biden Flounders in Friendly Interview

Yesterday Democrat apparatchik George Stephanopoulos lobbed some softballs to Joe Biden on ABC’s This Week. Quid Pro Quo Joe swung at them and missed, telling easily debunked lies and proving unable to come up with a name for COVID-19. A few lowlights via NOQ Report:

The budget for the CDC has increased sharply under Trump:

CDC operating budget plans show that its funding for global public health protection — which includes global disease detection and emergency response and global public health capacity — increased from $58 million in fiscal year 2017 to around $108 million in fiscal years 2018 and 2019. (And that does not include any remaining supplemental funds available for use.) The increases included nearly $50 million more each year for CDC’s global health security initiatives.

Those amounts went up again in fiscal year 2020, when the CDC was awarded $183 million for global public health protection, overall, and $125 million specifically for its global health security efforts. For fiscal year 2021, President Donald Trump has requested that CDC funding for global disease detection and other programs be increased further — to $225 million total, with $175 million going directly to global health security.

If flinging money around was the answer, our health problems would be solved by now. Yet Biden raves that Trump “drastically cut” the budget. Nothing Biden says can be taken seriously.

Even Slow Joe should be able to remember a name for the virus that has taken up 99% of all news coverage for weeks on end. He could call it COVID-19, coronavirus, Wuhan virus, Wuhan flu, Chinese virus, China coronavirus, 2019 novel coronavirus, kung flu, etc. But none of these names came to mind:

Leave out all the rest. Biden’s denunciation of Trump’s travel restrictions on China as “xenophobic fear-mongering” even as the Wuhan virus spiraled out of control is enough by itself to disqualify him for the presidency. Yet now he claims Trump was too slow to restrict travel from China:

It doesn’t matter whether Biden is an arrogant bald-faced liar, a senile idiot, or both. What matters is that he does not become president. We’ll never agree on anything if we can’t agree on that.
