Hidin’ Joe Biden puts up Obama’s Ebola czar to attack Trump in face of national crisis

The actions of the liberal media in taking on an adversarial role in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic may be shameful, given that this is a time to come together for the American people, particularly for those genuinely hurting as a result of the far-reaching restrictions put in place to limit the Chinese virus, but it’s not surprising.

However, for the Biden campaign to politicize the outbreak is remarkable.

A new ad by the campaign features Ron Klain, who was the former vice president’s chief of staff and the Obama administration’s Ebola Response Coordinator. Wasting no time, Klain attacks Trump for his handling of the crisis, in an effort to insulate Joe Biden from criticizing the commander in chief during a crisis that may prove to have the greatest economic impact on the U.S. since the Great Depression, nearly a century ago.

“Some countries acted quickly,” Obama’s Ebola czar says in the ad, in reference to the coronavirus outbreak. “What did President Trump do? He downplayed it. Trump’s slow response to this crisis is no surprise.”

Klain noted that the coronavirus “started spreading in January,” and cherry-picks quotes from the president, offered with no context. Never mind that while Democrats and their media allies were consumed with a partisan attempt to impeach Trump, he issued a ban on travel from China — on January 31, 2020.

The president was called a racist and a xenophobe by many for taking an action that may ultimately prove to save thousands of American lives, if not more.

Biden himself spoke of the restrictions as “xenophobic,” calling it “fear-mongering” and “hysteria.”

Following a familiar script, Klain points out that Trump eliminated the White House pandemic prevention office put in place by Obama. He also accused the president of administering fewer COVID-19 tests to keep the number of confirmed cases down — a “Don’t Test, Don’t Tell” policy, Klain claims.

Even as a break-neck effort has been underway to get millions of tests out.

The outrageous distortion of the truth runs for over four minutes and proves to be little more than armchair quarterbacking. The ad puts so much of a political spin of the facts that viewers will walk away dizzy.

Although, the reactions to the ad show that you can’t fool everyone — here’s a small sampling of responses from Twitter:
