Yes, I Noticed That Also

Trump Critics Who Called Vaccine Timetable Reckless Now Say It's Reckless NOT to Take the Vaccine by Larry Elder (townhall.com)

Ok, I know that most of the China Virus anti-vaxxers are Trumpers. And they’re idiots.

But Larry Elder does a great job here of rolling the tape:

On May 15, then-President Trump announced Operation Warp Speed, a $10 billion program with a goal of producing 300 million vaccine doses to administer to Americans by January. But three days earlier, Fauci testified before Congress and said, "There's no guarantee that the vaccine is actually going to be effective." Two days after that, Rick Bright, the former head the federal government's Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, testified: "Normally, it takes up to 10 years to make a vaccine. ... A lot of optimism is swirling around a 12- to 18-month time frame, if everything goes perfectly. We have never seen everything go perfectly."


Immediately after Trump's announcement of Operation Warp Speed, CNN analyst Jessica Huseman tweeted, "Go ahead and flag this tweet for when we do not have that vaccine by the end of the year." Joe Lockhart, former Bill Clinton White House press secretary, tweeted: "There is not an objective scientist on TV right now that believe anything that was said at the press conference who believes anything like this can be done by the end of the year. Caveat, I'm not watching Fox." Then-Sen. Kamala Harris, in September, said: "There is very little that we can trust that comes out of Donald Trump's mouth." Later that same month Joe Biden said: "I trust vaccines. I trust scientists. But I don't trust Donald Trump. And at this point, the American people can't, either."

These people told us for almost a year that the vaccine couldn’t or wouldn’t happen in the timeline suggested by Trump, and that if it did it wouldn’t be safe or effective.

Like so many things from 2017-2020, Trump was correct, and his critics were wrong. In fact, were his critics right about anything?? I can’t recall a single one.

Good thing we got rid of someone who accomplished to much and replaced him with a lying, incompetent, senile old man.
