For months, President Trump has pushed the idea that he and his administration have saved the lives of “potentially 2.2 million people” during the pandemic, a claim based on an early estimate by British researchers on the deaths that could result if the U.S. government and its citizens did absolutely nothing to respond to COVID-19. While the president regularly tosses out that claim in an effort to defend his administration's handling of the pandemic that has so far killed more than 212,000 Americans, on Thursday he found a way to turn it against former Vice President Joe Biden, who continues to build on his lead over the president in most polls. Trump based his argument on a comparison to the epidemic of H1N1 swine flu in 2009, when Biden was vice president.

"Of course, he participated in the vice presidential debate four years ago with a woman moderator, and he did similar things with that debate as well where he talked on and talked over her," Page said during the video.
By any measure, it's been a remarkable turnaround,” Carlson insisted of Trump's apparent recovery, before revealing that the White House camera team—and not Fox News—were the ones filming Trump remotely (and therefore presumably had some control over the edit). Siegel, the same doctor who irresponsibly speculated that former Vice President Joe Biden might be on “speed” or “Adderall” ahead of the first presidential debate and later downplayed the severity of Trump's diagnosis, began his exam by asking, “How are you feeling now? Trump said he's feeling “really, really strong,” unlike other people who have contracted the “China virus,” as he likes to call it.
