(ConservativePeak)_ Joe Biden’s new administration is already blaming President Donald Trump for its failures to ramp up vaccine distribution, after being left a comprehensive plan for rolling out the vaccines developed under the former president’s Operation Warp Speed.
White House Press Secretary acknowledged that the new administration had some “confusion” about the number of vaccines that were available, and tried to pass on the blame to the former president.
It comes after the newly-appointed Director of the CDC, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, admitted that the Biden administration couldn’t figure out how many doses of the COVID-19 vaccines they had available.
Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted “confusion around this issue” and said that it “speaks to a larger problem, which is what we’re inheriting from the prior administration, which is much worse than we could have imagined.”
It’s a lie that has already been roundly dismissed and debunked by White House Coronavirus Task Force member, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Speaking to reporters in the White House briefing room, Fauci corrected claims by the Biden administration and journalists that there was no vaccine plan.
“We’re certainly not starting from scratch, because there is activity going on in the distribution,” Dr. Fauci said.

“We’re coming in with fresh ideas, but also some ideas that were not bad ideas with the previous administration,” he added. “You can’t say it was absolutely not usable at all.”

Remember how President Barack Obama repeatedly blamed President George W. Bush for all his own failures? It looks like the catastrophes set to unfold in the next four years will likely be blamed on President Donald Trump, rather than on Joe Biden’s terrible decisions.
So far, the new president has revoked the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline and killed 60,000 jobs, and announced a series of economic measures designed to prioritise businesses owned by non-white people.
President Joe Biden has promised to administer 100 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine in the first 100 days, but given his incompetence so far, it’s unclear whether the administration will be able to deliver.
