President Joe Biden claimed in July 2021 that people vaccinated against COVID-19 would not catch the virus, exactly a year before he tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday.
Biden argued vaccinations would prevent people from hospitalizations and death from COVID-19, according to CNN’s transcript of the July 21, 2021, town hall event during which he made the claims.
“You’re OK,” Biden said. “You’re not going to — you’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.”
First of all, remember when Biden said that if you got vaccinated you wouldn’t catch Covid (having previously promised to “shut down the virus” if elected)?
The Biden White House has been forced to move those goal posts several times having been reduced to bragging about not being hospitalized for a less severe variant.

Allies to President Biden are voicing frustration about the political operation inside the White House as the midterm elections draw closer and the president readies for a possible reelection bid.
The allies say the lack of a “personal touch” from Biden has left them underwhelmed, with calls going unanswered, simple requests lacking a reply and little — if any — proactive outreach from staff inside the White House.
The most important thing is people just want to feel engaged,” said a longtime Biden ally, one of a dozen sources interviewed by The Hill who say Biden needs to do more to build support for the party and for his own political prospects to successfully run for reelection. They argue the problems are exacerbating an enthusiasm gap between the two parties that could hurt Democrats in the midterms and beyond.
That’s just pathetic and, quite frankly, cowardly, especially coming from a guy who oftentimes said on the campaign trail that the buck stops with him.
The fact of the matter is that Biden inherited an economy from former President Donald Trump that was on the rebound, and then promptly set about undoing it as soon as he was sworn into office with a mixture of Congressional and executive actions that included effectively shutting down the Keystone Pipeline project.
And beyond that, there are very few people in this country who are sitting around their kitchen tables paying the bills and trying to make ends meet who are quibbling over whether or not this is “really” a recession. Their thinning wallets tell them exactly what it is.
As Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) correctly pointed out in a Fox News interview after the GDP report was released, “Most Americans don’t really care about this debate or how many economists can dance on the head of a pin. What they see as a slowing economy and rising prices. It’s called classic stagflation.”
“And the bottom line is the economy sucks,” Kennedy also stated. “And it’s not going to get any better.”
Not as long as Democrats are in control of Congress and Joe Biden is president, that’s for danged sure.
