President Trump’s Promise Dunks All Over Vaccine Experts’ Doubts

The first COVID-19 vaccine has just been administered in New York.

President Donald Trump promised that vaccines would arrive before the end of the year. His followers, supporters, and listeners expected the milestone.

Those who only consume Trump via the news outlets, on the other hand, are shocked. The media and the so-called experts assured listeners that Trump was wrong, that a vaccine would not arrive in 2020. “There is just no way,” they declared.

CBS, one of the least trustworthy news agencies still around, wasn’t buying it at all. In May, Norah O’Donnell explained:

Well, that “timeline expert” is clueless.

NBC, an even less trustworthy outlet than CBS, ran a full article debunking Trump’s claim that the United States would see a vaccine by December. Trump would need a miracle, the network said:

“Experts say that the development, testing and production of a vaccine for the public is still at least 12 to 18 months off,” NBC News writes, “and that anything less would be a medical miracle.”

A medical miracle, huh? Sounds like quite the achievement for a president.

“Trump’s own top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci,” the Trump hit piece goes on, “told the Today show that January 2021 is the earliest a vaccine could be ready, but cautioned that that timeline is ‘aspirational.'”

Even Fauci, the “expert,” was wrong. Hard to fathom.

If 2020 has proven anything, it’s how little the term “expert” means anymore. Clearly, our public health experts are lost, striking out at every at-bat.

Similarly, pollsters came into the year with some credibility, only to predict an upcoming “Blue Wave” that never happened.

We should all be thrilled the vaccine has arrived and an end to this horrible virus is en route. Unfortunately, though, many Americans have lived the past 10 months in dire fear, as those they trust told them they are years away from normalcy and safety.

  1. I really wish Trump would fire Fauci as his last act of business. He has become consumed with his perceived power and basically just wants to be on camera all the time telling of doom and gloom. I think the country needs a new perspective and someone under 50 who doesn’t consider living in their basement a life.

  2. Bobby,right you are and I wouldn’t wait around for the media to praise Trump for getting the vaccines in record time. Since the media were partners with the dems in getting Biden elected they will continue their out right lies and lies of omission. Rahm Emanuel famously said,”Never let a crisis go to waste.” The “experts” are now claiming that the election wasn’t stolen so now we can all rest easy.

  3. But wait! the terrorist cult known as the DemoncRat party and the nauseating fake news media said there was no plan and no way this could happen. Even the Gates/China weasel puppet phony Fauci said it was impossible. Trump kicked their asses.
    So just imagine if the rigged election happened a few months ago and the evil deep state dummy puppet mumbling bumbling creepy senile criminal pervert racist bribe taking crazy Joe Biden was president during this time. The braindead asswipe can’t even remember his name much less accomplish anything like this. But the leftist morons will still deny Trump his due.

  4. How much would everyone pay to watch this jagoff live-streaming getting his arm amputated? All money could go to charity.

    “I would bet my left arm that Donald Trump can’t spell vaccine, let alone be able to make a prediction about when we’re likely to see one,” MSNBC contributor and Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt told a chuckling Joy Reid on May 15.

  5. Thank you President Trump. His legacy will live on in We the People. He’s the only person in the federal government that fights for the people everyday. The rest of the politicians are in it to ingratiate themselves and there is no one who does that better than Joementia and his filthy corrupt family.
