Democrat front-runner Joe Biden has apparently adopted the idea that if the truth won’t help his case, go with a lie. After all, that seems to be what much of the so-called mainstream media has been doing, as Breitbart recently pointed out.
The latest Biden lie is that the Trump administration rejected test kits offered by the World Health Organization.
“Look, the World Health Organization offered the testing kits that they have available and to give it to us now. We refused them. We did not want to buy them. We did not want to get them from them. We wanted to make sure we had our own,” Biden said during Sunday night’s debate.
Here he is making that claim yet again:
There’s only one problem. It’s a lie. WHO never offered any such kits to the U.S.
A post at Kaiser Health News notes:
The Biden campaign referred us to a Politico article that said the WHO shipped coronavirus tests to nearly 60 countries at the end of February, but the U.S. was not among them. That is technically correct, but it suggests that the United States would have been on the list under any circumstances.
The countries WHO helped are ones that lack the virology lab horsepower that exists across the United States. The outreach work by the Pan American Health Organization is a case in point.
The group is WHO’s arm in the Americas. It conducted trainings and sent materials to conduct tests to 29 nations. The list included Paraguay, Bolivia, Argentina, Chile, Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and many others.
The group said it focused most of its efforts on “countries with the weakest health systems.”
“No discussions occurred between WHO and CDC about WHO providing COVID-19 tests to the United States,” said WHO spokesperson Margaret Harris. “This is consistent with experience since the United States does not ordinarily rely on WHO for reagents or diagnostic tests because of sufficient domestic capacity.”
According to interviews with several infectious-disease experts, Biden’s statement leaves out context about how countries decided on which test they’d use to identify the presence of the coronavirus.
To break all this down succinctly, Biden LIED.
Something tells us the media won’t be picking up on this lie anytime soon.
