Joe Biden has done it again, but this time he has overestimated COVID-19 deaths and put them all in the lap of our President.
During a recent appearance, Biden claimed that almost 200 million people have died in the United States.
If that were the case, more than half of the population of this country would now be dead.
Joe Gaffe Strikes Again
Whether Biden is getting his numbers confused or he can’t read remains a mystery, but he continues to pump up COVID-19 numbers during these appearances.
Biden stated, “If Donald Trump has his way, the complications from COVID-19, which are well beyond what they should be — it’s estimated that 200 million people have died — probably by the time I finish this talk.”
In reality, the number is one-tenth of one percent of that, so this was a pretty big mistake.
This is a problem because the impact of what he is saying in that moment is realized far more than the impact of the correction.
People listen to these numbers in horror not realizing he is 1,000 times off the actual number.
Not the First time
This is far from the first time Biden has botched these numbers, which makes it seem purposeful.
In June, while campaigning in Pennsylvania, Biden stated, “People don’t have a job, people don’t know where to go, they don’t know what to do.
“Now we have over 120 million dead from COVID.”
Biden continues to claim that had he been in charge, the numbers would only be a small percentage of what they are now.
However, it should be noted, that from January to March, Biden only mentioned COVID-19 a handful of times from what I have been able to research.
It was only after the pandemic hit, well after the pandemic hit, that Democrats even started to worry about this.
Considering people like House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) were not discussing it publicly, it stands to reason they had little worry this would grow to the problem it has.
It should also be noted that after Trump shut down travel to China, Biden called him a Xenophobe and Pelosi blasted Trump as well.
Lies, lies, and more lies… that is what Joe Biden is spewing right now.
