Ric Grenell: Biden is only re-ordering the COVID vaccines

Fmr. acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell said President Joe Biden in only reordering the vaccines and that “all the heavy lifting was done by President Trump and his team.”

Speaking on Newsmax TV’s “The Count” on Saturday, Grenell said Biden’s vaccine distribution actions are “akin to going into the presidential Amazon Prime account and pressing reorder.”

“All the heavy lifting was done by President Trump and his team,” Grenell said. “We all know that they found the vaccine. They shepherded it through. I was in the Oval Office on multiple occasions where we had to interrupt an intel briefing because there was an urgent call from a CEO or somebody involved in Operation Warp Speed, and President Trump wanted to keep it on track. So every meeting, he would stop and he would take all of the calls to keep it moving.”

Last week, a senior advisor on the Biden administration COVID team praised the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed for the “record time” in which the COVID vaccine was developed.

“We’re grateful for the work that came before us and are doing the best we can to continue it and accelerate it,” Andy Slavitt said last week on Fox News. “I would absolutely tip my hat. … The Trump administration made sure that we got in record time a vaccine up and out. That’s a great thing and it’s something we should all be excited about.”

The Biden administration has claimed that they had to “start from scratch” regarding vaccine distribution. During a March 2 news conference, Biden said that Trump did not ensure there would be enough vaccines for the American public.

“When I came into office, the prior administration had contracted for not nearly enough vaccine to cover adults in America,” Biden said. “We rectified that.”

Grenell also said we should applaud Biden for continuing the vaccine process that was set up by the Trump administration.

“I guess what we can do is compliment President Biden for understanding that we just need to keep the process going, and the states need to keep getting the vaccine,” Grenell said. “But they didn’t do anything on finding the vaccine. They didn’t do anything to work through the bureaucracy. They didn’t do anything other than continue what President Trump had set up, so let’s applaud President Biden. We’re keeping going, what President Trump set up, so reordering. You know, great, great accomplishment, right?”

In a statement last week, Trump said he hopes everyone “remembers” him when receiving the COVID vaccine.

“I hope everyone remembers when they’re getting the COVID-19 vaccine, that if I wasn’t President, you wouldn’t be getting that beautiful ‘shot’ for 5 years, at best, and probably wouldn’t be getting it at all. I hope everyone remembers!”

Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.

“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.

More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.

National Review reports:

The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.

The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.

Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
