Pence Destroys Biden’s Record: He’d Have Killed 2 Million People Fighting COVID

Vice President Mike Pence made a vigorous defense of the Trump administration’s handling of the COVID-19 outbreak during Wednesday night’s vice presidential debate and sought to undermine the case that a Biden administration would have handled the pandemic better.

Pence pointed to the swine flu outbreak in the United States during the first year of President Barack Obama’s administration, saying millions of Americans would have died if the virus had been as deadly.

Then-Vice President Joe Biden was helping coordinate the administration’s response, Politico reported.

“It was 2009 the swine flu arrived in the United States,” Pence recounted.

“Thankfully it ended up not being as lethal as the coronavirus, but before the end of the year when Joe Biden was vice president of the United States, not seven and a half million people contracted the swine flu, 60 million Americans contracted the swine flu.”

“If the swine flu had been as lethal as the coronavirus in 2009 when Joe Biden was vice president, we would have lost 2 million American lives.”

Pence then noted that Biden’s own chief of staff at the time, Ron Klain, said just last year it was nothing but “luck” that only approximately 12,000 Americans died.

“It is purely a fortuity that this isn’t one of the great mass casualty events in American history,” Klain said, according to Politico.

“It had nothing to do with us doing anything right. It just had to do with luck. If anyone thinks that this can’t happen again, they don’t have to go back to 1918, they just have to go back to 2009, 2010 and imagine a virus with a different lethality, and you can just do the math on that,” Klain added.

Harris argued a Biden administration would handle the coronavirus better than President Donald Trump has, though Pence pointed out that Biden’s plan does not offer any significant difference from what the Trump administration is doing.

CNN, MSNBC, and other polling sites are attacking pollster who took a random poll, found that Trump is not only leading in Florida but nationally!
Michelle Obama, the former first lady does what she has always done best, play the victim, blame everyone else but her husband, then claims what she and her husband brought about is all Trump’s fault.
A moderator, once more while attacking Pence, refuses to ask Harris hard questions that would be difficult to answer.
