In Contrast to Dr. Fauci, Kamala Harris Says Biden Admin. is Starting from Scratch on COVID

We all know that Vice President Kamala Harris isn’t the most truthful individual. If anything, she is the biggest drag on the Biden administration because of her blatantly noticeable and inept way of lying. The most recent fabrication of the truth on record is one in which she disputes Dr. Fauci on the coronavirus response.

In an interview this past weekend between Kamala Harris and Mike Allen of Axios, Allen sought to question Harris on the Biden administration’s response to the coronavirus and what it’s doing to pick up where the Trump administration left off.

AXIOS: You’re coming up on a month inside the machine. What are you finding is harder about the pandemic? How are you finding the hole is deeper?

KAMALA HARRIS: I mean, the challenge, Mike, is what I explained to the mayors. There was no stockpile. Right? It’s in many ways–

AXIOS: No stockpile of?

KAMALA HARRIS: Of vaccines, right? So we’re looking at this. There was no national strategy or plan for vaccinations. We were leaving it to the states and local leaders to try and figure it out. And so, in many ways, we’re starting from scratch on something that’s been raging for almost an entire year.

Speaking at the White House on January 21st, Dr. Fauci’s words were noticeably in stark contrast with Harris’.

Questioner: Okay. And if I could just ask you about the effort to distribute the vaccines, because, of course, that’s what most people want to know: when are they going to get a vaccine. Is the Biden administration starting from scratch with the vaccine distribution effort, or are you picking up where the Trump administration left off?

DR. FAUCI: No, I mean, we certainly are not starting from scratch because there is activity going on in the distribution.

…I mean, we’re coming in with fresh ideas, but also some ideas that were not bad ideas with the — with the previous administration. You can’t say it was absolutely not usable at all. So we are continuing, but you’re going to see a real ramping-up of it.

According to Bloomberg, the daily rate of vaccinations went from zero to a rolling average of 913,000 per day under Trump. 1.5 million doses were administered on the former president’s last day in office on Jan. 20. Under Biden, the rolling average increased to 1.7 million doses per day. Despite the number of doses steadily increasing since Biden’s inauguration, the rate of increase is more or less the same.

So no, nothing is being started from scratch, Kamala. You’re picking up right where Trump left off and that’s all. Some people tend to look past Kamala’s blatant fabrications of the truth or pretend like they never happened, but others don’t forget, and this is only one of many examples that won’t be forgotten.
