Joe Biden has gotten away with running the most barebones presidential campaign in history.
He infrequently pops out of his basement to sit for a softball interview.
And in his latest interview, Biden told one dangerous lie about the coronavirus.
The general election has narrowed considerably over the past few weeks.
Joe Biden seemingly had a comfortable lead as he sat back and allowed the so-called mainstream media hammer away at Donald Trump regarding the Wuhan virus.
But that tactic isn’t working as well anymore.
Biden has had to do more press, and the more he talks, the more he either gaffes or lies.
And Biden told a big lie during a 60 Minutes interview with Norah O’Donnell.
White House health advisor Scott Atlas has essentially recommended adopting the Swedish model to combat the virus – open up the economy, allow people to go about their lives, and quarantine the elderly and others in high-risk demographics.
But Biden said “nobody” agreed with Atlas’s prescription.
And Atlas didn’t let that lie stand.
"NOBODY!" Ummm … tell that to the 11,000+ (so far) epidemiologists and ID scientists from Harvard, Stanford, Oxford etc. who aligned with this. Boy, those Flat Earthers sure don't give up. #TruthWillPrevail #WeKnowTheScience #FactsMatter https://t.co/wKYKvrkKC5

When Biden says nobody agrees with Atlas, he’s lying through his teeth.
Atlas joined over 11,000 doctors who have signed onto the Great Barrington Declaration, which calls for a halt to the endless coronavirus lockdowns.
The declaration was co-authored by Harvard University professor of medicine Martin Kulldorff, University of Oxford professor Sunetra Gupta, and Stanford University School of Medicine professor Jay Bhattacharya.
Their petition reads in part:
“As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection…Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health.”
“Keeping these measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.”
Doctors have been sounding the alarm on lockdowns for months, but the early adopters to this line of thinking were dismissed as quacks.
Democrats conveniently ignore “the science” when it stands in the way of their power.
