This is the most hilarious and pathetic attempt at projection that anyone has ever tried.
In an op-ed for the Hill, Fox News host Juan Williams claims that former President Donald Trump is jealous of Joe Biden’s success.
You heard that right, Trump is jealous of Biden’s success…
I’m confused as to what Williams’ definition of “success” is in this case.
If he is defining success as sitting at a desk, being confused, taking credit for Trump’s accomplishments, and passing the blame for his own failed immigration policies, then Biden has been very successful.
If we are to use the actual definition of the word, Joe Biden’s success rate is currently in the negative.
Williams however, claims that Trump is “green with envy” and begging for attention.
Perhaps Fox News only keeps Williams around for purely entertainment purposes at this point…
Here's part of Williams' op-ed from the Hill:
How green with envy is Donald Trump?
President Biden has him begging for attention.
Since Biden’s inauguration, the COVID-19 infection rate has been cut by well over half.
And last week congressional Democrats passed Biden’s popular COVID-19 relief bill. The economy is rebounding, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average up about 19 percent since Election Day.
Poor Trump. All he can do is put out a whiny statement.
“I hope everyone remembers when they’re getting the COVID-19 (often referred to as the China Virus) Vaccine, that if I wasn’t President, you would be getting that beautiful ‘shot’ for 5 years, at best, and probably wouldn’t be getting it at all. I hope everyone remembers!”
We remember the shortage of vaccine when he left office.
We remember there was no plan for getting Americans vaccinated.
And who can forget that Trump lied from the start about the severity of the virus and later promoted a quack, phony cure?
The bottom line is that he produced the greatest failure of presidential leadership in history.
In January, Trump’s last month in the White House, the nation had the highest number of COVID-19 deaths since the pandemic began. Shortly after he left office, the virus death toll topped 500,000.
With Biden in the White House, the nation has turned that around in 50 days.
COVID-19 infection rates and deaths are sharply down while the number of people getting shots has more than doubled to over 2 million a day.
Biden promised 100 million vaccinations in his first 100 days in office. He is on track to do it.
And now Biden says there will be enough vaccine for all Americans by the end of May.
Trump and his aides are reduced to complaining that Biden’s team is “using our playbook every step of the way.” They correctly note that Trump got vaccine production started. But people outside of politics say there is no comparing the administrations.
“Corporate, state and federal officials agree Mr. Biden’s White House has been more active than his predecessor’s in trying to build up the nation’s vaccine stock,” The New York Times reported last week.
Apparently poor Juan has no understanding of how this whole vaccine roll out actually works.
Joe Biden's only claim to success is taking credit for something that President Donald Trump actually accomplished.
Republicans like Ronna McDaniel have called Biden out for these false claims.
In fact, as McDaniel pointed out, Biden and Kamala Harris both encouraged Americans not to trust the vaccine promised by President Trump.
Fox News has the scoop:
Ronna McDaniel, the GOP chairwoman, took to Twitter late Monday to criticize what she sees as President Biden’s attempt to take credit for his predecessor’s vaccine accomplishments—even after casting doubt about safety during the campaign.
"During the campaign, he [Biden] encouraged Americans not to trust Operation Warp Speed," McDaniel posted.
In September, Biden expressed concern about receiving a vaccine that was approved during the Trump administration. He stressed that he trusted scientists and vaccines but said he did not trust Donald Trump.
"And at this point, the American people can’t either," he said.
The Washington Post reported at the time that Biden hinted that Trump could be pressuring his agency officials to approve vaccines for an electoral boost.
Vice President-elect Kamala Harris also made headlines and stirred controversy during September and October when she said on multiple occasions that she wouldn’t trust the president’s word on taking the vaccine.
"If the public health professionals, if Dr. (Anthony) Fauci, if the doctors tell us we should take it, I'll be the first in line to take it, absolutely," Harris said during her single debate with Vice President Mike Pence. "But if Donald Trump tells us we should take it, I'm not taking it."
Joe Biden loves to take credit for everything he thinks is good.
Must be the dementia...
