One or extra journey bans have been good. One or extra have been dangerous. Welcome to politics in 2021. Joe Biden’s press secretary stepped as much as the rostrum Monday to reply questions on President Joe Biden’s journey ban on South Africa after the invention of the Omicron variant. It’s the most recent hysteria whipped up by Biden and his media lapdogs who wasted no time sending the coronabros right into a frenzy with headlines of it being a “race against time.”
Jen was requested about journey bans and the way President Biden threw round “hysteria, xenophobia and fear-mongering” claims in January 2020 when Trump’s administration was within the technique of instituting journey bans from China.
“What the President was critical of was the way [Trump] put out a xenophobic tweet on what he called the coronavirus and who he directed it at,” Psaki instructed Fox News reporter Peter Doocy. “The President has not been critical of travel restrictions. We have put them in place ourselves. We put them in ourselves in the spring. He believes we should follow the advice of health and medical experts. That’s exactly what he did by putting in these restrictions over the weekend.”

It was fascinating for Psaki to say that Biden hasn’t been “critical of travel restrictions” contemplating what he tweeted on March 12, 2020 when Trump banned journey from Europe.
A wall won’t cease the coronavirus,” then Presidential-candidate Joe Biden wrote on Twitter. “Banning all journey from Europe – or some other a part of the world – won’t cease it. This illness might affect each nation and any individual on the planet – and we want a plan to fight it.

Banning all journey from Europe — or some other a part of the world — won’t cease it.

Biden made a degree going all the best way again to 2020 to drop nuggets to voters that they only couldn’t belief Trump due to this xenophobia towards China and his “fearmongering.” It occurred at a January 31, 2020 marketing campaign cease in Iowa.
“We have right now a crisis with the coronavirus, emanating from China,” Biden stated in Fort Madison, Iowa. “A national emergency worldwide alerts. The American people need to have a president who they can trust what he says about it, that he is going to act rationally about it. In moments like this, this is where the credibility of the president is most needed, as he explains what we should and should not do. This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia – hysterical xenophobia – and fearmongering to lead the way instead of science.”
Speaking of fearmongering, let’s check out the present scenario in South Africa the place the physician who found the variant spoke to BBC and Reuters and urged these freaking out to settle down.
“What we are seeing clinically in South Africa — and remember I’m at the epicenter of this where I’m practicing — is extremely mild, for us [these are] mild cases. We haven’t admitted anyone, I’ve spoken to other colleagues of mine and they give the same picture,” Dr. Angelique Coetzee instructed the BBC.
Coetzee went on to inform the BBC that her sufferers have been coping with “very mild” signs from omicron.
There you have got it, simply one other day of politics in 2021.
We are within the midst of a disaster with the coronavirus. We have to paved the way with science — not Donald Trump’s file of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst doable individual to steer our nation by a worldwide well being emergency.
