There has never been a presidential campaign like 2020.
America was rocked by a pandemic, a recession and race riots.
Democrats tried to twist that to their advantage but Mike Pence just shut down the biggest lie Joe Biden tells about Donald Trump.
During a town hall organized by public employee union bosses, Joe Biden tore into Donald Trump’s handling of the pandemic.
Biden outrageously called the President’s handling “criminal” and claimed that because Donald Trump didn’t order Americans under indefinite house arrest with unending lockdowns, the President invited a second wave.
“This is almost criminal, the way he’s handled this,” Biden falsely claimed. “There’s going to be some form of second wave, I hate to tell you this.”
Vice President Pence destroyed this panic and propaganda in a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece.
Pence noted that some of the increasing cases were due in large part to expanding testing capacity.
The national positive test rate average hovered in the five to six percent range which suggested the nation as a whole stabilized the outbreak.
“While talk of an increase in cases dominates cable news coverage, more than half of states are actually seeing cases decline or remain stable. Every state, territory and major metropolitan area, with the exception of three, have positive test rates under 10%. And in the six states that have reached more than 1,000 new cases a day, increased testing has allowed public health officials to identify most of the outbreaks in particular settings—prisons, nursing homes and meatpacking facilities—and contain them,” Vice President Pence explained.
Some states like Texas are seeing positive rates increase more than testing capacity which suggests a growing outbreak.
But even in this case, the fake news media’s hysteria is nothing more than a pack of lies designed to sabotage the reopening by frightening Texans into staying indoors.
In Texas, the media hypes up the fact that hospitalizations are up 66 percent since Memorial Day with over 2,200 beds occupied.
What they neglect to tell their audience is the fact that there are 14,000 available hospital beds.
In addition, Vice President Pence noted the rapid development of therapeutics to treat coronavirus and the goal of developing a vaccine by the end of the year.
Already, the company Gilead donated its supply of Remdesivir which has shown promise in shortening the hospital stay for coronavirus patients.
In addition, British researchers found that Dexamethasone – a common steroid that reduces inflammation – cut the death rate for coronavirus patients on ventilators by 30 percent.
Trump-hating fake news reporters are rooting for a second wave in the fall so governors will shut down their states, which reporters believe will be the final nail in Donald Trump’s coffin.
Pence added up all of these positives – increased testing capacity, a massive mobilization of industry to produce ventilators and personal protective equipment and the rapid development of therapeutics and vaccines – and scoffed at Joe Biden and the fake news media’s prediction of a second wave of coronavirus.
The media has tried to scare the American people every step of the way, and these grim predictions of a second wave are no different.
