While appearing on MSNBC, former VP Joe Biden falsely claims there were over 600k dead in the U.S. from Coronavirus. After being confronted that the number if closer to 60k, Biden looked confused for a moment then said “I misspoke.”
Over 600,000 dead. Many are workers, nurses, doctors, because they have put themselves in a position to save other people’s lives and protect the rest of society. We talk about that number, 600-plus thousand people… 60? 60-thousand, I misspoke.
