Biden was strong in the open and got Trump to actually shut up for two minutes. Now it’s Trump doing Trump again. The lie-per-minute rate on this one is going to be astounding.

Biden back on track on the damage done by Trump on this, still having a hard time not getting rattled because who wouldn’t?

Wallace again, asking about how Trump keeps contradicting his expert advisers. “It is a very political thing,” he says, that his own scientist and doctors are trying to defeat him? Wallace tries to get at that and Trump just keeps rolling, with the vaccine. Good interjection from Biden, talking about how there was going to be a miracle and it would go away, by summer it would go away, inject bleach. Good seizing of the narrative from Biden.
