(PoliticalLookout.com)- President Joe Biden was caught in yet another lie on Tuesday, and this one’s a doozy.
During a CNN town hall event in Milwaukee, President Biden falsely claimed that there was no COVID-19 vaccine when he entered the White House roughly one month ago – something that CNN’s Anderson Cooper didn’t even challenge him on what he said it.
The lie was so egregious given that the new president received both required doses of the vaccine before he was inaugurated on January 20th.
So if there was no COVID-19 vaccine, what vaccine did he and Vice President Kamala Harris take before they assumed office?
Here is Kamala Harris receiving the first dose of the vaccine on December 29, 2020.

But CNN let Biden lie about it.
When Cooper asked the president about the availability of vaccines, and whether hundreds of millions of doses could be administered by the Summer, Biden chimed in with his latest lie.
“It’s one thing to have the vaccine, which we didn’t have when we came into office, but a vaccinator…how do you get the vaccine into someone’s arm?” he rambled.

And there is no way that he misspoke, either. The White House released a transcript of the event, which repeats precisely what Biden appears to have said during the event.
Here’s what Biden said, as per the transcript:
“And the biggest thing, though, as you remember when you and I — no, I shouldn’t say it that way, “as you remember” — but when you and I talked last, we talked about — it’s one thing to have the vaccine, which we didn’t have when we came into office, but a vaccinator — how do you get the vaccine into someone’s arm? So you need the paraphernalia.”
And, as per the same transcript, Cooper didn’t say a word. He simply added, “That’s been one of the problems is just getting enough people.”
Biden went on to say that his administration has made “significant strides” in increasing the number of vaccinators and that he had issued an executive order allowing retired nurses and doctors to assume the roles.
The shocking lie comes after Vice President Kamala Harris wrongly claimed that the Biden administration was “starting from scratch” on COVID-19 vaccinations, which prompted a huge backlash.
We’ll update you if President Biden walks back and apologizes for the claim, but given his track record…that doesn’t seem too likely.
