Did Pfizer Delay Announcing That Its Vaccine Was 90% Effective Until After the Election Was Stolen?

It certainly looks that way, reports Julie Kelly.

The president repeatedly expressed confidence that a vaccine might be ready before Election Day. Pfizer's chief executive officer Albert Bourla said in a September 8 interview that his company's phase three trials were "progressing very well" and that he expected a preliminary finding by the end of October.

But on October 27, as Americans already were voting for president amid panicked warnings of a second surge of coronavirus, Pfizer said data from its late-stage trial would not be available before November 3. "For us, the election is an artificial milestone," Bourla told reporters. "This is going to be not a Republican vaccine or a Democrat vaccine. It will be a vaccine for the citizens of the world."

Oddly, however, Joe Biden was the first to learn that the nonpartisan totally unbiased vaccine now is getting close to the greenlight stage. "Last night, my public health advisors were informed of this excellent news," Biden said in a statement issued early Monday.

(According to some reports, the White House found out about Pfizer's announcement from the media. The president didn't tweet about it until Monday morning.)

News organizations cheered Pfizer's announcement that its vaccine is 90 percent effective at preventing COVID-19; the stock market soared. One Pfizer official initially told the New York Times that the company was "never part of Operation Warp Speed."

Note: Earlier in the article, Julie Kelly established that Pfizer was in fact part of Warp Speed -- it signed a big government contract saying so.

This prompted a victory lap from the Trump-hating media. MSNBCs Joy Reid tweeted that she "felt better" Pfizer wasn't involved in Operation Warp Speed and she wouldn't "go near anything that Trump or his politicized FDA had anything to do with." Vanity Fair concluded that Vice President Mike Pence could "f**k off" after he commended Operation Warp Speed for facilitating Pfizer's quick work. "The Trump administration is trying to take credit for the Pfizer vaccine, which of course it had nothing to do with," the magazine snarked.

Read the whole thing. It's infuriating.

Can anyone answer the question why the GOP continues fucking over its wage-earning and small-business-owning base to deliver taxpayer bailouts and special favors to the big corporations who are determined to destroy us?
