We’ve already posted President Joe Biden’s tweet from last December saying he was going to “shut down the virus” a couple of times recently, so we’ll trust you remember it. And there was Biden’s campaign promise that he would ask Americans to mask up for just 100 days; that was his plan.

Biden hasn’t shut down the virus by any stretch, and he’s had the advantage of having a couple of vaccines at his disposal since the day he assumed office. On the Wall Street Journal’s opinion page is a piece arguing that Biden has done no better defeating COVID-19 than Trump despite all of the advances in prevention and treatment.

Politico’s Sam Stein says that’s a take that lacks any real context.

Isn’t “lacks context” what the fact-checkers use when they don’t want to accuse someone of lying but can’t ignore the facts?
