(ConservativePeak.com)- Kamala Harris used her slot during the Democratic National Convention to address their tiny viewership (no, seriously, they had millions fewer viewers than in 2016) to claim that Joe Biden will be able to “end this pandemic.” During her acceptance speech, the vice-presidential hopeful claimed that President Donald Trump has “cost lives” in his response to the virus and that Joe Biden will “bring us together.”
Sure thing, Kamala. Kind of like how condemning half the American public as racist brings us together, right?
“Joe will bring us together to end this pandemic and make sure that we are prepared for the next one,” she claimed.
We can address this claim easily. Joe Biden, as Vice President, failed to stock up on PPP and other medical equipment despite seeing the outbreak of two viruses during his time in office. Despite witnessing Ebola and Swine Flu outbreaks, neither Barack Obama or Joe Biden chose to stock up on masks and other forms of protective equipment that were in desperately short supply when the Chinese coronavirus pandemic occurred.
So why should we believe Joe will be prepared the next time?
“Donald Trump’s failure of leadership has cost lives and livelihoods,” she said, without providing any evidence. “The virus has no eyes, and yet it knows exactly how we see each other – and how to treat each other,” she added.
“And let’s be clear, there is no vaccine for racism. We gotta do the work,” she also said.
What is this lady talking about?
The rest of the speech contained all the usual platitudes and cries for support. She said that she’s inspired by a “new generation of leadership” which is presumably a reference to all the vocal, far-left young Americans supporting her. She said that the election is about “people of all ages and colors and creeds,” as if President Trump has suggested otherwise. He hasn’t.
In that same line, Harris even referenced people “taking to the streets.” I don’t know if Harris has been watching the videos published online, but those people taking to the streets have been burning down police buildings and beating people unconscious in the street.
