Joe Biden has “no excuse for the way in which he politicizes and demagogues health issues,” conservative commentator and Constitutional Scholar Mark Levin declared Friday after the Democrat presidential candidate claimed that every single person who died from the coronavirus would be alive today if not for President Donald Trump.
On Thursday, Biden said – twice – that “all the people” who died from the coronavirus “would still be alive”:
"If the president had done his job, had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive. All the people — I’m not making this up. Just look at the data. Look at the data."

In a series of Friday tweets, Levin called Biden “a loathsome demagogue” for making such extraordinary claims, like he did last year when he stated as fact that his administration would cure cancer. Levin, who lost both his parents to cancer, took exception to Biden’s proclamation:
“Joe Biden, during a campaign speech, said he's going to cure cancer. Both of my parents recently passed away from cancer. And they suffered. Biden has been in office for nearly half a century.”
“When he makes statements like this, or when he accused President Trump of being responsible for every coronavirus related death, he demonstrates what a loathsome demagogue he truly is.”
“I know his family has suffered from cancer, but so has mine and so have millions of others over the years. This provides him with no excuse for the way in which he politicizes and demagogues health issues.”
“Since the rest of the media will not call him out, I will,” Levin says in his final tweet, embedding video of Biden’s promise to cure cancer, saying:
“If I’m elected president, you’re going to see the single most important thing that changes America. We’re gonna cure cancer.”
