(ThePatriotSource.com)- Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden made the shocking claim that some 200 million people will have died from COVID-19 by the end of a speech he gave on Sunday. The former vice president was talking about health care in the United States, before going on an incoherent rant about President Trump’s management of the virus.
“And perhaps most cruelly of all, if Donald Trump has his way, the complications from COVID-19 which are well beyond what they should be, it’s estimated that 200 million people have died by the time I finish this talk,” he said.
You can see in Biden’s eyes that he wasn’t sure about what he just said, immediately after he said it. But he carries on anyway, probably hoping nobody would notice.
“The complications of COVID-19, like lung scarring and heart damage, could become the next deniable pre-existing condition for over six million Americans who’ve already contracted the disease.”
You can watch the clip below. Watch closely for the sheer look of horror in his eyes when he realizes he might have just said something wrong.

It’s clear that Biden knew he screwed up, too, because minutes later he said, “Like I said, as I speak, we’re probably passing 200,000 deaths lost to this virus.”
The second time, he was right. The United States has officially passed 200,000 deaths as a result of the Chinese coronavirus. And, in a town hall event with CNN, Biden made the unsubstantiated claim that every single one of those deaths was the fault of President Donald Trump.
“If the president had done his job, had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive,” he said. “All the people. I’m not making this up. Just look at the data. Look at the data.”
Even left-wing fact-checkers looked at the data and confirmed that Biden was making it up.
