Joe Biden’s admin has completely botched the COVID messaging.
And Joe himself bears responsibility for a lot of the confusion everyone is feeling.
He can hardly string a sentence together, and when he does, he’s often misspeaking, flip-flopping, or contradicting statements involving COVID.

And now, we’re learning that spreading pandemic misinformation is nothing new for Joe…
We dug up an old tweet with a “flashback” video showing just how badly Biden’s handled H1N1 (swine flu).
Please, note, the reporter in this clip is actually Jake Tapper – and he’s acting like a professional. It’s quite shocking to hear.
Watch the video:
Joe Biden will again politicize coronavirus today. But his record on pandemics is one of incompetence.
During the 2009 swine flu outbreak, Biden made reckless comments unsupported by science & the experts.

Here’s what Politico reported in 2009:
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs issued an apology Thursday for Vice President Joe Biden’s comments that he wouldn’t recommend taking a commercial flight or riding in a subway car because swine flu virus can spread in confined places.
“Obviously, if anybody was unduly alarmed for whatever reason, we would apologize for that. And I hope that my remarks and remarks of people at CDC and Secretary Napolitano have appropriately cleared up what he meant to say,” Gibbs said during the daily briefing at the White House.
The Obama administration was concerned that Biden’s remarks would cause a panic and they were not in line with the more restrained remarks already made by Barack Obama.
In an interview Thursday on NBC’s “Today” show, Biden said, “I would tell members of my family — and I have — I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places now,” Biden said on NBC’s “Today” show.. “It’s not that it’s going to Mexico. It’s [that] you’re in a confined aircraft. When one person sneezes, it goes all the way through the aircraft. That’s me. …
“So, from my perspective, what it relates to is mitigation. If you’re out in the middle of a field when someone sneezes, that’s one thing. If you’re in a closed aircraft or closed container or closed car or closed classroom, it’s a different thing.” [Red State]
