Burgess Owen needs to stop spreading falsehoods. If Republicans truly care about our country, they will help Biden make it successful, safe and equitable. Comments like Owen’s, attacking Biden as fearful because the Capitol is surrounded by fences and barbed wire, are ridiculous, especially since the attack can be attributed to lies spread by Owens and others about the election.
Owens complains Biden is not giving Trump credit for Operation Warp Speed. Trump’s investment in the vaccine was the only thing he did to minimize its effects. He politicized wearing masks, hushed scientific research, and blamed others for the spread while leaving states to fend for themselves in controlling it. Personally, I find it refreshing that Biden does not attack Trump’s record, and is moving forward without blaming Trump for the turmoil he caused our country and the many deaths that could have been avoided.
Imagine if the roles were reversed, if Trump had followed Biden and Biden had ignored the virus. Rather than getting anything positive done, Trump would spend most of his time blaming Biden.
Owens is following Trump’s script and there is nothing beneficial coming from it.
