(RepublicanWire.org) – On CBS Evening News Monday anchor Norah O’Donnell and senior White House correspondent Ed O’Keefe reported on President Joe Biden’s disastrous interview with 60 Minutes Sunday. As part of the report, O’Keefe noted how many of Biden’s statements needed to be corrected or clarified by his handlers afterward.
Biden was such a trainwreck that O’Donnell opened with this stunning report: “there is fallout tonight after President Biden’s interview with 60 Minutes, comments he made about the pandemic, led stocks of three COVID vaccine makers to plunge, shares falling as much as nine percent.”
“President Biden’s conclusion on 60 Minutes Sunday that the COVID pandemic has ended prompted push-back from health experts and clarifications from top officials,” O’Keefe noted.
“Make no mistake, people are still dying. And what the President is saying is that we all want to get back to where we were before COVID,” Health and Human Services Secretary, Xavier Becerra stated.
CBS aired a soundbite of Fauci attempting to revive the pandemic by claiming “it is likely that we will see another variant emerge, and there’s already on the horizon.”
Biden was also asked about whether he plans to run for reelection.
“You say that it’s much too early to make that decision. I take it the decision has not been made in your own head,” Pelley remarked.
Biden said, “look, my intentions I said to begin with is that I would run again, but it’s just an intention.
Is it a firm decision, that I’d run again? That remains to be seen.
O’Keefe ended by reporting that “the President also told 60 Minutes the U.S. Military would defend Taiwan against a quote unprecedented attack from China.”
“White House officials later clarified U.S. White House policy towards Taiwan hasn’t changed. The Chinese called the President’s comments, well they said they sent the wrong signal,” O’Keefe noted before tossing back to O’Donnell.
