Joe Biden attempted to look presidential by giving an address on Thursday about the Wuhan virus about what he would do.
As my colleague Streiff observed, his “plan” involved mostly plagiarizing what President Donald Trump is already doing.
He also attacked Trump’s restrictions on travel from affected areas as “xenophobic” and claimed they wouldn’t do much good. This, despite the fact that the principal expert on the case, Dr. Anthony Fauci, has said that such actions have helped and will continue to help.
My colleague Sister Toljah reported how the WHO has just confirmed that Europe is an epicenter for infections right so Trump cutting off travel from there makes all the more sense and Biden all the more wrong.
But after he gave that speech, his campaign sent out an email on Thursday night, begging people to read it “all the way through” with the text of his speech about the Wuhan virus in it. Like people really want to read through one of his speeches, are they kidding?
But then the reason they were supposed to read it all the way through became clear at the end when he then begged for money.
Karl Rove blasted him for his actions, “Does he have no sense of shame, have these people no sense of decency?”

“This isn’t the time to be complacent,” the email said at the end. “If you are ready to fight for the soul of this nation, you can start by donating to elect Joe Biden by clicking the button below.” The button, rimmed in red, declared, “Donate to Elect Joe Biden.”
This is the guy Democrats are pitching as their “decency” candidate? The guy who has a history of lying, plagiarism, was just given Four Pinocchios for lying about Trump in a recent video and now wants to politicize a virus and stoke your panic to get you to donate to him, not even to helping fight the virus? For shame.
How cynical and exploitative is that?
