Trump calls Joe Biden 'mentally gone' after Covid-19 vaccine row, Internet says he's 'still a better president'
Trump said Biden was lying during the town hall where he claimed that there were no Covid-19 vaccines available when he came to office
During a CNN town hall in Milwaukee on Tuesday, February 16, President Joe Biden said that when he took over as the president, his administration arrived to find no Covid-19 vaccines available. Ex-president Donald Trump broke his silence on February 17 night and said that Biden was either lying or was "mentally gone" for making that statement.
While giving an interview to Newsmax host Greg Kelly marking the death of Rush Limbaugh, Trump said that Biden had made a "very dumb" statement about the vaccines. He also teased that he may run for president in 2024. Speaking about his "tremendous support", he said that he won't make a return to Twitter, the social media channel that had banned him after the violent Capitol riots on January 6, 2021. He said, "It's become very boring. We don't want to go back to Twitter."
Trump's response to Biden's comment
Biden had told CNN's Anderson Cooper, "It's one thing to have the vaccine — which we didn't have when we came into office — but a vaccinator: How do you get the vaccine into someone's arm?" This sparked major controversy because many didn't hesitate to point out that the vaccines were available before Christmas. On February 17, Trump said, "We were giving millions of shots, millions of doses. So he was either not telling the truth or he's mentally gone. One or the other. Joe Biden's being killed on that thing. Even the haters said, well wait a minute, this vaccine was announced long before."
To make matters worse, Trump also pointed out that Biden was vaccinated "long before January 20", adding, "He made the statement that we had no vaccine. Literally, quote, we had no vaccine. He is getting lit up on that one. Even the bad ones. Even the ones that aren't exactly fans, they were saying that was a bad statement. Maybe, let's give him the benefit of the doubt - could he be joking? Because frankly that was a very dumb statement."

Regardless of Biden's statements, netizen's say he's 'still a better president'
The comments under the Newsmax tweet were divided as it usually is when it comes to the Trump vs Biden debate, but many took Biden's side. "Still a better president than Trump ever was," said one user. Another added, "So happy this man is our President. He runs circles around that previous guy." One more said, "Considering Dumbald has never told the truth, I'll consider Biden's statement the one with more veracity."
