Hollywood star Tim Allen has joined the chorus of widespread mocking of Joe Biden over the Democrat president’s disastrous gaffe-filled interview on CBS.
Biden’s interview with “60 Minutes” on CBS Sunday has made headlines after the president made several claims that had to be walked back by his White House handlers.
On Monday, CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell and senior White House correspondent Ed O’Keefe reported on Biden’s interview.
Both O’Donnell and O’Keefe seemed stunned that so many of Biden’s statements needed to be corrected and walked back by staff after it aired.
Below is a transcript from CBS:
NORAH O’DONNELL: Well, there is fallout tonight after President Biden’s interview with 60 Minutes, comments he made about the pandemic, led stocks of three COVID vaccine makers to plunge, shares falling as much as 9 percent. CBS’s Ed O’Keefe reports from the White House.
ED O’KEEFE: President Biden’s conclusion on 60 Minutes Sunday that the COVID pandemic has ended prompted push-back from health experts and clarifications from top officials.
PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with COVID, we’re still doing a lot of work on it, but the pandemic is over.
O’KEEFE: Health and Human Services Secretary, Xavier Becerra, who held a photo op, promoting the latest COVID booster shot was asked what the President meant.
XAVIER BECERRA: Make no mistake, people are still dying. And what the President is saying is that we all want to get back to where we were before COVID.
O’KEEFE: While overall, case rates are dropping nearly 400 people are still dying each day with about 30,000 currently hospitalized.
And Dr. Anthony Fauci today warned that vaccination rates are too low to end the pandemic.
ANTHONY FAUCI: It is likely that we will see another variant emerge, and there’s already on the horizon.
O’KEEFE: Mr. Biden was also asked on 60 Minutes about whether he plans to run for reelection.
SCOTT PELLEY: You say that it’s much too early to make that decision. I take it the decision has not been made in your own head.
JOE BIDEN: Look, my intentions I said to begin with is that I would run again, but it’s just an intention.
Is it a firm decision that I’d run again? That remains to be seen.
One person who was not surprised was comic legend Tim Allen, who landed a knockout blow at Biden’s expense.
“Biden was on 60 minutes,” Allen said.
“I heard he asked how long the show was.”
Biden was on 60 minutes. I heard he asked how long the show was.
