Oops: The Biden administration was forced to walk back its false claim that vaccines "weren't available" before Biden took office

May 14th

The first general population COVID-19 vaccine was given on December 14, 2020. Joe Biden took office on January 20, 2021.

So if you're familiar with how the linear progression of time works, then this might seem like a strange claim by the White House:

When President Biden took office, millions were unemployed and there was no vaccine available.

Hmmm. That's objectively untrue.

You can always rely on the Internet to set things straight, though:

Looks like the intern running the White House Twitter account got the message!

We previously misstated that vaccines were unavailable in January 2021. We should have said that they were not widely available.

Yeah that's a bit different!

Thank goodness the White House account didn't get locked out for spreading false information!
