With the coronavirus pandemic currently sweeping through the United States, the US government seems to have stepped up after a slow start to its response. With testing capacity now at 200,000 per day with plans to further bring it up, it seems that things are finally start take off.
That being said, president Trump’s delayed handling at the start of the pandemic is hard to forget, and he’s not done himself any favours, with
some most of the things he’s had to say about the virus either being ridiculous or downright nonsensical.
As such, the media has been on his ass more so than usual for the past month or two. With all the shit that comes out of the presidents mouth however, it’s easy to miss out on what other politicians in the US are up to. Trump’s rival in the presidential race, Joe Biden has also been in the news lately, and not for good reason either.
The former vice president has been accused of sexual assault by Tara Reade, a former staff member on Biden’s team in recent weeks and to make matters worse, his camp has recently been twisting a New York Times story to defend the Democratic nominee against the allegations.
It seems that the Biden camp have all been given the same talking points when it comes to addressing the allegations, which would normally be fine, except these talking points include mention of a “thorough review by the New York Times”, in which it goes on to explain “has led to the truth: this incident did not happen.”
