Virtually since COVID started in our country, Biden and Democrats have put all the fault on Donald Trump.
This is what makes Secretary of State Blinken’s recent admission all that more shocking.
On Sunday, Blinken confirmed that the lax handling of the pandemic by China during the early stages allowed COVID to get “out of hand faster.”
It sure is funny how narratives start to change once people get what they want.
Democrats from the outset blamed everything and everything COVID related on Donald Trump.
They did not even want to entertain the idea that China screwed the pooch somewhere along the line and deserved to be blamed for what was happening here in the United States.
Now, however, with Biden in office and struggling to get the problem under control himself, the narrative from top Democrats is already starting to change.
Blinken, while making an appearance on “Meet the Press,” stated, “I think China knows that in the early stages of Covid, it didn’t do what it needed to do, which was to, in real-time, give access to international experts, in real-time to share information, in real-time to provide real transparency.”
According to Blinken, that lack of transparency allowed the pandemic to get “out of hand faster and with, I think, much more egregious results than it might otherwise.”
Blinken also took a shot at the recent World Health Organization (WHO) report that was issued, stating that he had “real concerns about the methodology and the process that went into that report, including the fact that the government in Beijing apparently helped to write it.”
Now, I could be crazy, but I am fairly sure Donald Trump and Republicans were pushing that narrative long before election day.
While Trump was initially complimentary of China on its handling of the virus, that narrative changed dramatically after it became apparent China was hiding information from our government.
I cannot help but wonder how much more united the country would have been and how much further we would be regarding the pandemic had Democrats worked with Trump instead of politicizing the pandemic from the outset.
But, then again, had they done that, Joe Biden would not be living in the White House now, and that is all Democrats were really worried about at the time.
