Should we blame politicians for COVID deaths?

I’m old enough to remember when candidate Joe Biden blamed President Trump for each of 200,000 COVID deaths in the United States. See clip below.

This was a bogus statement at the time. While the Trump Administration’s approach to COVID certainly can be questioned, the fact is that no one in the world has had an adequate plan to deal with COVID. To his credit the Trump Administration eliminated regulatory barriers to help drug companies create new vaccines in record time, but despite widespread acceptance Americans have continued dying from COVID.

According to the following from the  Washington Times a new Johns Hopkins report says that more Americans have died of COVID under Biden than under Trump. Will that be discussed in the media? Are THOSE deaths Biden’s fault?

According to Michael Osterholm, an infectious-disease expert at the University of Minnesota quoted in the New York Times “We’ve ascribed far too much human authority over the virus.” We couldn’t agree more. Lockdowns didn’t work. Masks haven’t proven themselves very effective in the real world. Even vaccines which are pretty effective have their flaws.
