Candidate Biden thought President Biden unworthy to remain in office

According to candidate Joe Biden, President Joe Biden should no longer be in office. One year ago October, Biden stated, “Two hundred twenty thousand Americans dead. If you hear nothing else I say tonight hear this: anyone responsible for that many deaths, should not remain as president of the United States of America.”

In just under nine months in office, 300,000 people have died from COVID under Biden’s watch. According to the man himself, that means he should be impeached, I guess.

Since Jan. 1, there have been more than 353,000 deaths from the virus. This is more than in all of 2020. Soon, more people will have died from COVID-19 under Biden than during the entire Trump presidency.

Biden had the benefit of vaccines that were not available until the very end of the Trump administration. Millions have been vaccinated, yet the COVID seven-day fatality rate in September was higher than it was in September 2020. This suggests that Biden's plan to stop the virus and beat the pandemic has been disastrously ineffective. It’s not necessarily Biden’s fault — just like it wasn’t necessarily Trump’s fault — but Biden made the unwarranted claim that he could stop beat COVID-19. The facts show he was completely wrong and had no business making such false promises.

Biden benefits from a willing and helpful media, willing to conceal his ineffectiveness, whereas the media was all too anxious to make everything (even fake things that didn't happen) Trump's fault. But as we saw in Afghanistan recently, there are limits to how much incompetence the media are willing or able to hide.

In Biden's defense, he had to deal with a pandemic resurgence resulting from the Delta variant. Then again, he had the vaccines that Trump's administration helped develop. Regardless of who may or may not be getting vaccines, they are available to everyone at this point.

Biden's administration is currently underwater in terms of its handing of COVID-19, but that really isn't enough. His approval on this issue should be zero at this point. After touting for months that he had a plan that would work, he has been exposed as a fraud who would say anything, and the media that support him are equally fraudulent.

If we accept Biden at this own word, then he is not qualified to be president any longer. On his own terms, he should resign immediately.
