Hillary Clinton Praises Biden's First 100 Days in Office: 'He's Just Getting Started'
'100 days. 220 million shots in arms'
Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton gushed over Joe Biden's so-called 'progress' from vaccines to stimulus checks, despite taking credit for the achievements of former President Trump and his administration.
“100 days. 220 million shots in arms. 160 million relief checks. Just getting started. Thanks, @JoeBiden,” Clinton wrote in a post.

220 million shots in arms.
160 million relief checks.
Just getting started.
Biden touted his progress during Wednesday’s address.
“After I promised we’d get 100 million COVID-19 vaccine shots into people’s arms in 100 days, we will have provided over 220 million COVID shots in 100 days,” Biden said to applause.
“We’re marshaling — with your help, everyone’s help — we’re marshaling every federal resource."
"We’ve gotten the vaccine to nearly 40,000 pharmacies and over 700 community health centers, where the poorest of the poor can be reached,” he continued.
“We’re setting up community vaccination sites, developing mobile units to get to hard-to-reach communities. Today, 90 percent of Americans now live within 5 miles of a vaccination site,” Biden said.
“Everyone over the age of 16 everyone is now eligible to get vaccinated right now right away. Go get vaccinated, America. Go and get the vaccination,” he added.
Biden failed to mention Trump’s Operation Warp Speed, which was unprecedented in terms of development, manufacturing, and distribution of the vaccines.
Meanwhile, Republicans argued Biden inherited a fast-track.
“Why did President Biden tell Americans to wait until July 4th to gather in ways that cities, states, and the CDC approve right now,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) asked in a March 15 tweet.
“Why did he present a million vaccines per day as a personal ‘Mission Accomplished’ moment when it’s simply the pace Democrats inherited in January?” he asked.

Clinton made no mention of Biden’s original plan for “just” 100 days of masking.
“Wear your mask for just 100 days,” Biden said in a December speech.
“It’s the easiest thing you can do to reduce COIVD cases, hospitalizations, and death.”
“Whatever your politics or point of view — mask up for 100 days,” he continued, contending it would take “100 days to make a difference.”
Biden also falsely claimed he inherited “the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression," during his speech before Congress on Wednesday.
