If there’s one thing that is now crystal clear after the Year of our Lord 2020, it’s that the “Party of Science” is not very good at science. In fact, Democrats appear to be downright terrible at that whole “science” thing.
Someone should have warned Elizabeth Warren about this last year, before she launched the first official campaign commercial of the 2020 election season. Remember that?
Warren declared in that commercial, “Well, lookie here, trailer park rubes! I got me one of them real DNA tests and it proves that I am a real, genuine 100% certified oppressed Native American Plains Indian!” Except that the “science” of the DNA test showed that she might be 1/1024th Native American, meaning that any ancestor of hers that was actually a member of a tribe was walking around several hundred years ago in South America. (And not her mom, who she claimed had “Cherokee cheekbones” in order to wrangle a Harvard teaching gig.)
Likewise, the “Party of Science” all broke out in laughter when President Trump declared that there would be a coronavirus vaccine before the end of the year. They chortled at that.
Say, do you know when the first COVID vaccine trial was actually created? That happened back in January of 2020 — exactly one day after scientists first sequenced the genome of the coronavirus with the first sample that was leaked out of China. That’s how fast the science can actually move in this day and age, without regulations in the way.
But you won’t hear about that from the “Party of Science.” Check out what they really said when President Trump told everyone there would be a vaccine this year, in this video…
