Biden flagged by Twitter users for spreading ‘misinformation’ during CNN townhall
President Joe Biden received criticism for comments he made during a CNN town hall event Wednesday regarding the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines.
“The various shots that people are getting now cover that. They’re..they’re okay. You’re not gonna get COVID if you have these vaccinations,” Biden said.
Twitter users were quick to point out the false information, noting numerous stories of vaccinated individuals contracting the virus.
“Didn’t a bunch of vaccinated people get covid already??” One user replied.
“MISINFORMATION. He should be banned on all social media, like Psaki said,” replied another.
“Will he be suspended on social media for spreading false information?” Asked another.
“Huh!? Didn’t some vaccinated White House staffers and all those vaccinated democrats from texas still get it? c’mon man,” said another.
“TX Democrats who fled their duties in ATX were supposedly vaccinated and still contracted COVID 19 so this appears to be another lie,” said someone else.
The claims of false information come as the archbishop of Cincinnati said that he was not informed of, and would not have approved, President Biden’s visit to a Catholic university in his archdiocese.
“Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr has not been contacted by any involved party about the upcoming visit of President Joseph R. Biden to Cincinnati,” said the Archdiocese of Cincinnati in a statement released Tuesday. “Archbishop Schnurr has therefore not been asked for, nor would he have granted, his approval for any such event to occur on Catholic premises.”
