President Biden deflected growing criticism from his previous comments claiming it will take “months” to “change the trajectory” of the CoVID pandemic; telling reporters “it’s going to take a long time.”
“I know he always asks me tough questions, and he always has an edge to them, but I like him anyways,” Biden said before calling on Fox News’ Peter Doocy during Monday’s press briefing.
“Now that you’re president, you’re saying there’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next couple months,” Doocy pressed. “What happened to two months ago when you were talking declaratively about ‘I am going to shut down the virus’?”
“I am going to shut down the virus, I never said I’m going to do it two months,” the president said. “It took a long time to get here, it’s going to take a long time to beat it.”

BIDEN AT PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE: ‘I Am the Vice President of the United States’
Former Vice President Joe Biden continued his gaffe-filled campaign during Thursday night’s presidential debate; strangely informing the audience he’s the Vice President of the United States.
“The President did the best thing that could be done at the time,” said Biden when asked about President Obama’s immigration policies.”
“How about you?” asked moderator Jorge Ramos.
“I’m the Vice President of the United States,” Biden asserted.
Biden faced tough questions and jabs from his fellow Democratic challengers during Thursday’s debate; including Senator Elizabeth Warren whose poll numbers have risen in recent weeks.
“The 2020 candidate pulled off a rare showing in an Economist/YouGov poll published Wednesday, tying the largely untouchable former Vice President Joe Biden with 26 percent support among registered voters. It marks one of the few polls where Biden is within danger of losing his frontrunner status, and contains a dismal prediction for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.),” reports The Week magazine.
“Biden has only had a few close calls in previous polls, but Warren’s 2020 rise has seemingly been eating away at his support as well as Sanders’. In a late August poll from Monmouth University, Sanders and Warren topped the pool with 20 percent support, and Biden was just behind at 19 percent. In this Economist/YouGov poll, Biden is back up, but so is Warren, both leaving Sanders a full 10 points behind at 16 percent,” adds the website.
BIDEN GOES BALLISTIC: Warns Reporter with Microphone ‘Don’t Poke that in MY FACE Buddy!’
Former Vice President Joe Biden continued his gaffe-laden campaign while departing New Hampshire this week; bizarrely grabbing a reporter’s microphone when asked to comment on the state of the 2020 Democratic Primary.
“Look, I told you in the beginning. The first quarter of this campaign is the first four caucuses and primaries. That’s what this is all about, then we go from there,” said Biden. “Everybody talks about the past. Clinton lost 9 primaries and won only one.”
“I’m getting on a plane, heading down there, doing a little rally in South Carolina,” he added as one reporter held a microphone up to better hear the Vice President. “Don’t poke that in my face, alright buddy?!”
