MARK LEVIN (HOST): The narrative that was going out there that there wouldn't be vaccines and if there are, they wouldn't be safe because he's cutting corners. And now Joe Biden stands there, like a mannequin dummy, and talks about how he's going to make sure that all Americans are taken care of. Maybe even by the end of May. And there's enough suckers out there who are going to believe it because the media pushed their narrative and it spreads like poison and cancer throughout the society.

It would be as if Jonas Salk came up with a cure to polio, but then he stepped away and somebody replaced Jonas Salk. And although they didn't find the cure they were there when the cure was distributed. And then he trashed this replacement, Jonas Salk, trashed Jonas Salk. Jonas Salk didn't act quickly enough. Jonas Salk didn't have a distribution plan. Jonas Salk didn't create enough of what would become the vaccine for polio. That's what's going on here. That's what's going on here. And it truly is appalling how this is playing out and it's disgusting, actually.

President Trump today said I hope everyone remembers when they're getting the COVID-19 vaccine, that if I wasn't president, you wouldn't be getting that beautiful shot for five years at best and probably wouldn't be getting it at all. I hope everyone remembers, he says. People who are honest, people who are objective, people who aren't in the tank, who the tyrants out there in the media, in the White House and Congress, and so forth, they know who was responsible for getting this done.

And I've got a lot more audio of Joe Biden, and I'll play it over the days and weeks ahead. Where he dismissed this whole idea of a vaccine. It was Trump who said we can wear masks and we can distance and these governors can shut down the government, but that's not going to fix a damn thing. They talk about now Psaki and Biden we're at war. Trump used that phrase over and over and over again, we're in a war. We're in a war. Not only do I despise these leftists, Biden and the rest of them, what they're doing to this country, I despise how they lie like the best of dictators.
