Watch: Joe Scarborough Eats Humble Pie, Laments Trump’s Legacy ‘Could Be Considered An Unqualified Success’
For the past nine months, America has been dealing with the coronavirus pandemic by no fault of our own.
The virus has sent tens of thousands to the hospital, infected many, and killed a tragic number of Americans.
On MSNBC “Morning Joe” host, Joe Scarborough lamented that if it weren’t for President Trump who authorized Operation Warp Speed there would be no vaccine.
Coronavirus experts like Fauci and Osterholm all downplayed the possibility of a vaccine in the Spring. All of the experts claimed we would be living under COVID restrictions until 2022. It is now very possible as long as Democrat governors don’t screw it up that the vaccine will start being distributed in mass by mid-December.
Even Scarborough admitted that if Operation Warp Speed plays out as the pharmaceutical companies believe it will, the president’s legacy “will be a very positive one.”
“[N]ot only this news program, but just about every other has documented in great detail the repeated failures of Donald Trump on just about every aspect of this pandemic,” Scarborough said while addressing MSNBC medical correspondent Dr. Dave Campbell. “But the president – if these numbers end up playing out the way it’s looking if in fact there is a 90-to-95% effective rate, and we have millions of Americans by the end of this year being able to take a safe vaccine that makes them immune from the coronavirus — then that’s one legacy that Donald Trump will take with him out of the White House. And that is that Operation Warp Speed will be considered an unqualified success.”
“If — it’s the lawyer in me — if, in fact, this plays out the way the pharmaceutical companies are saying it’s going to play out, then I will say again, Mika, then Donald Trump’s legacy on Operation Warp Speed will be a very positive one,” he added.
