OK... I'm screaming at the TeeVee..

David Muir of ABC is interviewing the President, and he's asking blame questions.
Not verbatim, but close... "Why didn't you see Omicron coming?"
Biden - to his credit - laughed and pointed out that NObody saw it coming, instead of saying something like... "It's a fucking virus, you moron! It wasn't HERE a couple of months ago because it didn't exist!"
WTAF????

1. Actually the correct answer would have been

while we were of course aware of the potential for the virus to mutate, largely due to the vast number of unvaccined people, we did not know which form it would take. However, rest assured that we are well prepared and taking the necessary measures.

5. Correct.

I'm fed up with our side getting it wrong.

Harris said scientists didn't see either Delta or Omicron coming. BS. Delta was already named when the CDC made the disastrous decision to tacitly authorize throwing masks away.

Scientists certainly saw Omicron - or other significant variants - coming. They have been regularly warning about them.

Thank goodness at least Fauci publicly contradicted her.

Biden, last night, made an unqualified statement that if you are vaccinated and get your booster you will not get seriously ill or die. That is BS, as well. MOST people who are vaccinated and boosted will not get seriously ill or die. But you know when vaccinated and boosted people do get seriously ill and die the right wing will be the first to point to that (and the many similar statements) Biden has made.

We have to be accurate and scrupulously honest. Aside from anything else - if we aren't, it will be thrown back in our faces.

2. Me too.

I didn't know David Muir was so damned biased. That supposed interview was an insult.

3. If you want to communicate with him on Twitter it looks like

the World News Tonight site is more direct. Others there are not happy about that interview. Why are the members of the press obsessed with the words “blame” and “mistake.” Everything is a gotcha question or an accusation. I’m tired of it.

4. Agree. Muir was obviously trying to confound Biden with non-sensical questions and

please those who are against Biden.

Never liked the guy. He always struck me as one of those insincere media suck-ups, with no true character, only a soft veneer willing to do anything for fame and fortune.

Poor replacement for Diane Sawyer.
