Andy Slavitt was Joe Biden’s senior adviser to the COVID response team. He just stepped down from the position last week and now has a new book he’s hawking on all the networks, “Preventable: The Inside Story of How Leadership Failures, Politics, and Selfishness Doomed the U.S. Coronavirus Response.”

What a coincidence, I’m sure that his leaving isn’t at all timed to coincide with the book coming out. Did it factor into his joining the administration? This is just wrong to try to profit off the pandemic with a book. Yes, he’s no longer with the Biden team but that doesn’t make it any less scummy.

But on top of that all, he’s now trying to hype the book by lying about President Donald Trump and actually disparaging the American people.

Biden’s Covid czar, @ASlavitt, says the pandemic wouldn’t have been as bad if Americans “had sacrificed a little bit” more.

Slavitt tells CNN’s John Berman that there were “political leadership mistakes” including that President Donald Trump “denied the virus for too long.” That’s just an out-and-out lie. In January 2020, as word of the virus began to come out, Trump formed the coronavirus task force, declared a public health emergency, and cut travel with China. So no, he obviously wasn’t denying the virus. But this is the constant lie that Democrats have pushed.

Meanwhile, Democrats like Ron Klain, Biden’s present chief of staff, said in February 2020 that we had more to fear from “fear” than from an epidemic.

On February 13, Joe Biden’s top coronavirus advisor Ron Klain tweeted: “We don’t have a coronavirus epidemic in the U.S.” He implied “fear” was the bigger threat.

But then Slavitt went beyond attacking Trump; he got to what he seemed to think was the real heart of the
