Well, we just finished and are getting ready for another week of dealing with the flip-flopping and outright lies coming from Vice President Kamala Harris and Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Considering the conflicting messaging coming out of the White House, CDC, and NIH concerning COVID, this old saying came to mind.
“What We’ve Got Here is Failure to Communicate”
Vice President Harris said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, which published last Friday, that the Biden administration saw neither the delta nor the omicron COVID-19 variants coming in advance.
“We didn’t see Delta coming. I think most scientists did not — upon whose advice and direction we have relied — didn’t see Delta coming,”
“We didn’t see Omicron coming. And that’s the nature of what this, this awful virus has been, which as it turns out, has mutations and variants.”
On Sunday, Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor contradicted the vice president, “We definitely saw variants coming,” Fauci said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“What was not anticipated was the extent of the mutations in the amino acid substitutions in omicron, which was really unprecedented.”
‘When you have a virus which has 50 mutations.”
‘To me that is really quite unprecedented so that is something you would not have anticipated.
‘But we certainly were anticipating that there were going to be variants. Because when you have so much replication going on in the community, if you give a virus enough opportunity to replicate you know it’s going to ultimately mutate.”
‘And sometimes those mutations become a new variant, and that’s what happened with Delta, and certainly with Omicron.’
Fauci later tried to soften the rhetoric during an interview with NBC. He said he indeed saw the variants coming, but thought Harris’ statement ‘was taken a bit out of context,’ adding he believed she was referring to ‘the extraordinary number of mutations … particularly with omicron.
‘I think that the vice president’s statement was taken a bit out of context,’ he said.
‘I believe that the vice president was referring to the fact if you look at the number of mutations in Omicron, it’s unprecedented,’ he said.
‘No one had expected it that much but we were well prepared and expected that we were going to see variants,’ he said.
Who is telling the truth? Who knows, I don’t trust either one of these two or anyone else on the progressive left.
