Here we go with the blame game. All the world’s a plot and all the people co-conspirators. And they’re all out to get Donald Trump, who is simply blameless. If his enemies would just do what he wants them to, then all would be well. And if his non enemies would just give him credit for things he never did, same result.
In his latest fundraising email, Donald Trump takes credit for the Pfizer vaccine, while accusing Pfizer of withholding news of it to hurt his election chances. (It did not.) And Trump accuses the "left" of stealing the election from him. It's all coming together. pic.twitter.com/aXrhKnzeLm

To add insult to injury Pfizer was never funded by Operation Warp Speed, which Trump’s allies have claimed. The money came from the German government.

But that’s okay. Success has many authors, failure only one, and Mike Pence will take credit for anything he can, deserved or not. And he’s not the only one, by a long shot.
Some Republicans, including Donald Trump Jr. and Texas Senator Ted Cruz, questioned the timing of Pfizer’s release of its positive data on Monday, almost a week after the presidential election — with the implication that the information could’ve changed the outcome and tipped the scales toward President Donald Trump, who lost to former Vice President Joe Biden.
The timing of this is pretty amazing. Nothing nefarious about the timing of this at all right? ???? https://t.co/nS5rkywKXT

Welcome to CT world. We’re going to be steeped in it like tea leaves in hot water for 70 days. Then who knows?
