Celebrities and media outlets swooned Thursday as former Vice President Joe Biden played a round of ‘make-believe President’ and unveiled a plan to combat and overcome the (WUHAN!) coronavirus.

Biden, whose questionable mental health and frequent outbursts have become increasingly problematic for the Democrat party, took aim at President Trump‘s efforts to slow the spread of the virus in the United States.

“Downplaying it, being overly dismissive, or spreading misinformation is only going to hurt us and further advantage the spread of the disease. But neither should we panic or fall back on xenophobia,” Biden said in a line that echoed fellow-Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s frustration with Americans “not patroning” Asian restaurants.

“Labeling COVID-19 a foreign virus does not displace accountability for the misjudgments that have been taken thus far by the Trump administration,” Biden said as he got to the main purpose of his speech: to shame President Trump for calling the pandemic a “foreign virus” in an Oval Office address Wednesday.

Side Note:

Whoa… CNN and MSNBC are racist xenophobes…

At any rate, Biden called for “decisive public health response to curb the spread of the disease and to provide treatment to those who need it.” Golly. If only someone else had thought of that. Good thinking, Joe!

America: Crisis will be over soon! Joe Biden has called for decisive action and treatment. You may now return to your regularly-scheduled poor grooming habits.

Also, listen to Tony Katz.
