Kamala Harris played dumb when it came to discussing the origins of the virus during an appearance on CBS Evening News Monday.
Speaking to reporter Margaret Brennan, Harris was asked if she believed the unvaccinated were to blame for the latest omicron outbreak.

“I don’t think this is a moment to talk about fault. It is no one’s fault that this virus hit our shores, or hit the world,” Harris said.
Her tone is markedly different from the White House’s messaging of late, which included a statement from Biden last week telling unvaccinated people they’re facing a “winter of severe illness and death.” Brennan did not press Harris on her contrast in messaging.

Harris’ elusive answer prompted many on social media to accuse her of running cover for China’s role in the development of Covid-19 Monday.
Wait, what? OK it's no one's fault *IF* zoonotic origin. But 2 years of searching has produced no evidence, vs the Occam's Razon explanation of lab leak. So yeah, it's almost certainly someone's fault.

Ok, I get the thing about her letting China off the hook, but they have blamed Trump this whole time. Now the talking points have changed.

This is dangerous. We know where it came from. And are shielding them from taking responsibility because it would also implicate lord fauci and company.

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times last week, Harris blamed government incompetency for failure to predict virus mutations.

“We didn’t see Delta coming. I think most scientists did not — upon whose advice and direction we have relied — didn’t see Delta coming,” she said. “We didn’t see Omicron coming. And that’s the nature of what this, this awful virus has been, which as it turns out, has mutations and variants.”
Harris’ gaslighting attempts come as Covid deaths continue to skyrocket under the Biden regime. The same administration previously claimed President Trump should be held responsible for far less Covid deaths.
Fox’s Peter Doocy asks about deaths from COVID under Trump and Biden, and WH Press Sec. Jen Psaki reminds him that “the former president was suggesting people inject bleach.”
