Once again, the Biden administration has lied directly to the American people by sharing blatant misinformation to Twitter about coronavirus.
The White House wrote: “When President Biden took office, millions were unemployed and there was no vaccine available. In the last 15 months, the economy has created 8.3M jobs and the unemployment rate stands at 3.6% — the fastest decline in unemployment to start a President’s term ever recorded.”
This information is false. Weeks before Biden took office, there were COVID-19 vaccines available to the public. In fact, Joe Biden himself received two doses of the coronavirus vaccine before he became president. He received the first dose of Pfizer’s vaccine Dec. 21, 2020, and then his second dose on Jan. 13, 2021.
When President Biden took office, millions were unemployed and there was no vaccine available.
In the last 15 months, the economy has created 8.3M jobs and the unemployment rate stands at 3.6% — the fastest decline in unemployment to start a President's term ever recorded.

“Maybe check your own tweets?” one person responded:
"no vaccine available"? What was president-elect Biden injected with? Sugar water? And was his *second* shot!

It looks like Biden should be thanking Elon Musk who vowed to add an “edit” button to the social platform.
On Dec. 15, 2020, the first COVID-19 vaccine dose was administered in the U.S. under former President Donald Trump.
This was one month before Biden would become president.
There were millions of doses distributed prior to Biden taking office, according to reliable vaccine trackers such as The Washington Post.
It’s easy to see why many Americans find it alarming that the Biden administration, which itself spreads misinformatino, has announced that a “Disinformation Governance Board” is being established to combat “disinformation” in the 2022 midterms.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified that a “Disinformation Governance Board” had recently been created, days after Tesla CEO Elon Musk purchased Twitter. Mayorkas confirms the purpose of the new organization is “to combat online disinformation” and will be led by Undersecretary for Policy Rob Silvers co-chair with principal deputy general counsel Jennifer Gaskill.
Politico reported that Nina Jankowicz will head The Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board as executive director. Multiple outlets have exposed Jankowicz’s liberal bias and argued she’s a “woke so-called expert who’s against free speech.”
Jankowicz openly admitted to NPR that she “shudders to think about” Musk’s Twitter takeover and more free speech on social media platforms. Musk promises to make the Twitter algorithm open source to increase trust.
Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley referred to the board as a “disgrace” and wrote a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas demanding answers as to how the board will operate.
“Is there anything more dystopian than a Disinformation Governance Board run by the federal government?” Florida Republican Congressional Candidate Dr. Willie J. Montague tweeted, adding in a later tweet that the board is “Orwellian.”
“They didn’t need a ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ until @elonmusk threatened their control over the narrative,” Texas Republican Congressman Troy Nehls tweeted.
“The libs spent the last weeks planting the seeds for the back-up plan in case the Twitter deal actually happened,” Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert tweeted. “Today’s news of a Biden backed ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ is dystopian. They can’t afford to let the truth be anything but what they say.”
“Biden’s ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ is a real-world Ministry of Truth,” Daily Wire reporter Megan Basham tweeted. “A conservative movement that doesn’t fight this with everything it has isn’t worthy of the name. Or the name American.”
For those who believe this tweet is a key to all my views, it is simply a direct quote from both candidates during the final presidential debate. If you look at my timeline, you will see I was livetweeting that evening. https://t.co/nI7ZgBtTLC https://t.co/4DjBl9bzt0
