Less than 12 hours after President Joe Biden gave his address to at joint session of Congress, former President Donald Trump called into Fox Business and began whining to host Maria Bartiromo that Biden had failed to give him credit for his many “accomplishments.”
Rather than offer any legitimate criticism of the policy proposals Biden laid out in his address, Trump harped on Biden not telling the American people of his predecessor:
“Obviously they’re very ungracious people. I did the vaccine. They like to take the vaccine. But even the fake news isn’t giving them credit for that. We did the vaccine, saved tens of millions of lives throughout the world by coming up with a vaccine. If I weren’t president, vaccine, you wouldn’t have a vaccine for five years, three to five years would be the minimum. I got it done in less than nine months. And that’s only because of me.”
Actually, Trump did not “do” the COVID-19 vaccine. Pharmaceutical companies and virologists got together and formulated the vaccines millions of Americans are now taking.
It didn’t take long before social media hit back at the Donald:
Trump killed nearly 500,000 Americans. I think Biden has acknowledged that accomplishment. https://t.co/DKodfxaiyF

Trump is a malignant narcissist, career criminal, & traitor. He wanted to steal the election so as to stay in power & avoid prosecution. He still poses a real & present danger to our democracy. Without fear or favor he & his accomplices must be timely investigated & prosecuted.

We are going to have to probably take more than four years to reverse the damage that this megalomaniac has created. And he wants us to thank him? Yeah, think again.

President Biden has been much more gracious and decent than Trump ever was.

He didn’t accept the election results, didn’t concede, never will, still thinks recounts are fine, perpetuates the big lie, didn’t go to the inauguration and wants Biden to praise him?
