The Issue: The Biden administration’s handling of the pandemic during his first week in office.

Last week, President Biden stated that his goal was a million people vaccinated every day for 100 days (“Clueless,” Jan. 26).

His new administration didn’t even have a clue as to how many doses of vaccine were available.

If he had had a clue, his first executive order should have been mandating an audit of exactly how much of either vaccine was on hand and exactly what the production capacity of Pfizer and Moderna was.

The most important issue of this pandemic is producing enough vaccine for the people of the United States. Yet Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi are still focused on impeachment of a former president, rather than getting the vaccine into as many people as possible.

Cluelessness in Washington.

Leave it to The Post to call Biden clueless on its front page.

After more than four years of ignoring endless idiocies from the most clueless president in American history, The Post attacks a president who has been in office for less than a week and was denied access to the government for the first time ever by a corrupt, lying scoundrel.

So now that Biden has the keys to the kingdom, we’re finding out that his master plan to eradicate the coronavirus was just hollow words, and the gift China gave the world doesn’t respond to meaningless claims by politicians.

Less than a week into his presidency, he’s now telling us that: “There’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic.”

Biden inherited a vaccine that was produced in record time under the Trump administration’s “Operation Warp Speed,” and he has “heroically” vowed to distribute it in unprecedented time.

This virus was going to kill a lot of people regardless of who was in the Oval Office when it arrived, but the vaccine, which President Donald Trump will never be given credit for, will be the one thing that actually changes coronavirus’ trajectory and saves untold thousands of lives.

Why blame Biden for lack of doses administered? Trump stopped being our president on Nov. 4, losing all interest in anything but golf and filing baseless claims of election fraud.

I’d like to know how much Trump cared about any type of shots (other than those taken on the golf course) to use against the “China Flu.” Shouldn’t it have been gone by now?

Trump didn’t even concede victory to Biden, much less help ensure a smooth change of power.

Who was in charge of the initiation of producing, distributing and administering the vaccines? Trump was still (technically) in office, wasn’t he?

The ball (vial?) was dropped well before a poorly prepared Biden reached the Oval Office. I’m surprised Trump let him know where it was.

The Post is quick to jump on the Democrats for the current problems with coronavirus-vaccine distribution.

Let’s look back at the history of this disastrous situation: Trump’s reckless disregard directly costs hundreds of thousands of American lives. He did nothing to stem the spread of the virus.

And when a vaccine finally became available, he tried to take credit for its existence, when he had nothing to do with it.

Biden devoted a big chunk of his campaign time trashing then-President Donald Trump’s so-called lack of leadership during the ongoing COVID crisis.

Not only has Biden failed to implement any new actions to fight the virus, he now claims that there is nothing he can do at this point in time to change the trajectory of the virus.

His myopia is very convenient, as Trump did all of the heavy lifting involved in the task of producing and delivering a vaccine to the public, and in record time.
