What? The Biden White House lied in a correction of a previous lie? WHO WOULD HAVE GUESSED THAT WOULD HAPPEN??
The White House FINALLY took down their false tweet claiming that vaccines were not available until he took office. Some people are congratulating them for taking that bare minimum step. Not me, brother.
We previously misstated that vaccines were unavailable in January 2021. We should have said that they were not widely available.
Vaccines became available shortly before the President came into office. Since then, he’s responsible for fully vaccinating over 200 million people. https://t.co/rHJ0GZ63Dy

Misstated? They flat out told a vaccine FALSEHOOD. An election FALSEHOOD. There’s word for that: disinformation.
After failing to apologize and not taking any responsibility for their “misstatement” they then added a brand new lie by saying that the vaccines weren’t WIDELY available.
Biden had already been vaccinated TWICE before he took office, and count these up on one hand if you can:
White House “corrects” a lie with another lie.
1 million people were getting vaccinated every day the week Biden was inaugurated. https://t.co/BPup38QSOS

In fact, as Twitchy points out, there were so many people being vaccinated some areas couldn’t get doses FAST enough.
NY Gov. Cuomo asks to buy Covid vaccine directly from Pfizer amid nationwide dose shortages.
U.S. Vaccinations as of Jan 15:
•31.1 million distributed
•12.2 million administered
•Goal was to inject 20 million by the end of 2020https://t.co/gaMp6RmN8v

Thirty-one million administered by January 15th, a million A DAY the week of inauguration, and the president himself double dosed already.
But they can’t stop lying about it! And just like CNN’s Tapper soft-pedaled it and expressed zero outrage over the lie, the rest of the media will completely ignore this second one entirely.
