Democrats and their faithful in the media are doing their best to convince Americans that a Joe Biden White House would have somehow handled the coronavirus outbreak seamlessly, which is simply not the case, Buck Sexton, the host of “The Buck Sexton Show” said Tuesday.
“What would Joe Biden have done differently?” Sexton asked. “I mean, let’s really just take a moment for this, right? If Joe Biden had been president, what would have gone differently here? He wouldn’t have shut down flights from China.”
Biden would be silly to praise President Trump’s coronavirus response since he will likely face him in November. But Biden’s rebuke of the president’s coronavirus response is rising to the vitriol employed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“President Trump will try to paper over his administration’s failed response to the COVID-19 pandemic when he travels today to Arizona—but nothing can cover up how he failed to prepare our country for this pandemic and his slow response,” Biden said in a statement to the Arizona Republic. “Grandstanding isn’t going to help Arizonans get the resources they need to move forward. What we need is action.”
Trump has been credited for taking swift action to ban flights from China early in the outbreak but Pelosi was apparently not impressed. On Sunday, she told CNN that “actually tens of thousands of people were allowed in from China, it wasn’t as it was described as this great moment.”
“So if you’re going to shut the door because you have an evaluation because of an epidemic, then shut the door,” she said.
Biden’s straight-from-the-Pelosi-playbook response is expected, but Sexon asked what country got its virus response right?
“Did Europe do a better job? No, Europe did not do a better job,” Sexton said.
Sexton has long stated that Biden is likely not the party’s preferred choice to take on Trump in November. But a shared hatred can be unifying. Top women in the party are willing to put aside credible sexual assault allegations leveled at the former vice president in order to make sure Trump is out after one term.
It is not surprising that Democrats train their focus on coronavirus. Their months-long attempt to impeach the president failed and the economy has been booming under Trump, up until the virus.
The Trump administration has blamed China for not disclosing key details about the virus and its likely origins in Wuhan.
Sexton said, “Why should we think that Biden would do a better job-- oh-- because he’s not Trump. And that’s really all it comes down to.”
