I am not sure if anyone has drawn this parallel....

But isn't Trump's claim that he deserves credit for the Covid vaccine basically the same as Al Gore taking credit for helping fund early research into the internet? Of course, Gore's claim got lambasted while Trump gets a free ride from the MSM.

1. Jonas Salk

The Salk vaccine. Not the Eisenhower vaccine. In fact no vaccine has ever been named after a president who had next to zero to do with its development.

Nope.

2. The thing to remember is that The MSM is former guy's friend, not mine or yours.

3. Honestly, I don't remember trump getting much credit for anything CV19

related, and he deserved every bit of criticism. Not at first, but later I donít think even FOX was impressed with his handling of the pandemic.

4. They play clips of Trump claiming credit for the vaccine ad nauseum

The thing is, people say they heard it on the news. That's the problem when you give "both sides" equal air time when one side is lying its ass off.

5. The vaccines were Trump's Plan E

Plan A was magical thinking the virus would just go away, Plan B was hydroxychloroquine, and Plan C was bleach and UV light.

Plan D was just to blame China.

So we had to basically wait him out to get the remnants of Plan E elevated to proper Plan A status.
