Former President Donald Trump built a political career out of forcing liberals to face reality — and a post-presidential interview on Wednesday showed he hasn’t changed.
In a telephone interview with Newsmax TV host Greg Kelly, Trump, who’s been largely out of the public eye since Inauguration Day, took on current President Joe Biden’s appearance during a CNN town hall Tuesday and Biden’s claim that there was no coronavirus vaccine when he took office.
His description was dead-on, and it won’t make liberals happy at all.
“I saw that he said there was no vaccine when he came into office, and yet he got a shot before he came into office,” Trump told the host of “Greg Kelly Reports,” a program that’s rapidly growing in popularity with Trump’s political base.
“It was already in early November that we announced it, but we actually had it substantially before that. We were giving millions of shots and millions of doses.
“So he’s either not telling a truth, or he’s mentally gone. One or the other.”
Those should not be palatable options when it comes to the president of the United States.
But they’re alternatives Americans are likely going to have to get used to thanks to the installation of the aging, often-confused Biden to the highest office in the land.
Check out his statement from Tuesday night.
That was far from the only questionable moment. No one who watched even video segments of Biden’s CNN appearance could have been inspired to confidence by the wandering answers.
Besides the flatly wrong statement about the coronavirus, Biden made excuses for Chinese government practices that his own secretary of state agrees are “genocide,” and claimed that the liberal boogeyman of “white supremacy” is an actual threat to the United States. (It barely exists to the degree liberals obsess over, much less posing a threat to the Republic. The heyday of the Democratic Ku Klux Klan is long over.)
As disgraceful as Biden’s appearance was, it was protected, naturally by his Praetorian Guard in the establishment media. In the case of the vaccine howler, for instance, the establishment “fact-checkers” hastened to assure Americans that what the president said wasn’t really what he meant. (Does anyone remember any major media outlet trying to interpret Trump’s words like that?)
