More Than 1 in 4 US COVID Deaths Have Occurred on Biden's Watch

Fails to capitalize on success of Trump vaccine

April 3, 2021

More than 25 percent of Americans killed by COVID-19 have died on President Joe Biden's watch, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis.

Of the 551,638 total COVID-related deaths in the United States, nearly 142,000 of them have occurred since Biden was inaugurated on Jan. 20. On average, just over 2,000 Americans per day have died from COVID-19 during Biden's presidency.

By comparison, zero Americans died from COVID during the first 10 weeks of Donald Trump's presidency. The high number of deaths on Biden's watch have occurred even with the stunning success of the COVID-19 vaccines developed during the Trump administration.


Since Trump left office, most mainstream media networks have abandoned their thorough and often hysterical obsession with COVID-related deaths. A number of other crucial "accountability" projects have been scrapped as journalists readjust their definition of "speaking truth to power."

CNN, for example, has been been "afflicting the comfortable" with headlines such as: "Infrastructure was a Trump punchline but is a window into Biden's soul." Biden's first official press conference, a painfully bumbling affair, featured precisely zero questions about the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meanwhile, Biden's dog continues to reflect poorly on his owners by wreaking havoc on the White House. Alas, our nation's journalists are too busy jumping the COVID vaccination line to notice, much less care.
