The holiday spirit must’ve inspired something in Joe Biden that enables him to be open and honest for perhaps the first time in his entire career.
After acknowledging Trump’s groundbreaking role in securing multiple COVID-19 vaccines earlier this week, Joe Biden has now admitted that his administration is not “good enough” in regards to its pandemic response.
The cognitively deficient president conceded he has regrets over how he has managed the COVID-19 pandemic.
When ABC’s David Muir asked about long testing lines and if the lack of testing kits available at pharmacies is a failure, Biden said he has ordered 500 million testing kits and several millions of the new Pfizer antiviral pill but that it is not good enough.

“No, nothing’s been good enough,” Biden says about his administration’s response to the China Virus — and he’s right!
With the omicron variant now detected in all 50 states, the president urged people to take precautions this Christmas, noting how far the country has come in the last year.
The Food and Drug Administration authorized the Pfizer antiviral drug, which has shown to be highly effective at preventing hospitalizations due to COVID-19, on Wednesday.
Biden said the COVID-19 pill will be available to hospitals within the next week to a month.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends people ages 5 and older get vaccinated against COVID-19 as the best defense against the virus.
Despite his admitted failures, Biden still intends to run for reelection but left the door open for plans to change.
“Yes, but look, I’m a great respecter of fate,” Biden said. “Fate has intervened in my life many, many times. If I’m in the health I’m in now, if I’m in good health, then, in fact, I would run again.”
Muir then asked the president if he would run again if it meant facing off against former President Donald Trump.
“You’re trying to tempt me now,” Biden chuckled.

Meanwhile, each and every poll that’s emerged since Biden assumed office points to a complete trouncing in a rematch against President Trump.
