(PatrioticPost.com)- In yet another display of blatant and shameless hypocrisy, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is reportedly considering former Obama administration official Ron Klain as his chief of staff – a man who downplayed the impact of the Chinese coronavirus in the early days of the pandemic.
Aren’t the Democrats the “pro-science” guys?
In a press release from the Biden campaign, which has also been prematurely described as the “Office of the President-Elect,” Klain was described as having been a Senior Advisor to the Biden for President campaign.
“Klain is also known for his role as the White House Ebola Response Coordinator at the height of that public health crisis,” the press release continued.
Klain has naturally stood opposed to every step taken by the Trump administration on the COVID-19 pandemic, as you would probably expect. He has criticized the president for not acting faster on banning people from entering the country from China, despite the fact that Biden launched into a tirade in early 2020 accusing the president of “xenophobia” for instating the ban.

Klain also criticized President Trump for praising China’s efforts at the very early stages of the pandemic, before the extent of the country’s cover-up was known. This is interesting given that Klain very publicly said that China was being “candid” and “transparent” in its handling of the virus, and even said that banning travel from China was “premature” in late January.
So his two main criticisms of the president are demonstrably hypocritical.

As late as February 13, Klain even tweeted that the United States doesn’t have an epidemic, but only a “fear epidemic.”
And this is the guy that Biden wants to put in charge of his White House staff?
Want to see something even worse? He even went as far as telling people to go to Chinatown and go fining in late February, just like Nancy Pelosi did.
“Here’s one more thing everyone should do,” he said on a podcast in February. “They should, tonight, go down to Chinatown in their city and buy dinner or go shopping there. What we see inevitably, what we’re seeing already is, people staying away out of needless fears about coronavirus.”

Looks like Biden’s “transition” is off to a good start…
