GOP strategist Karl Rove on Thursday called Joe Biden assertions “baloney” that he would’ve handled the coronavirus pandemic far differently than President Donald Trump.

In an interview on Fox News’ “Your World,” Rove said Biden “had no idea” how to deal with the COVID-19 outbreak in its earliest months of outbreak in the United States.

“His first explanation of what he would do is on January 27th,” Rove said, pointing to a commentary by Biden in USA Today  that slammed Trump as the "worst possible leader" to deal with the virus outbreak.

"He says this could be a pandemic and I've got four things that I suggest we need to do —three of them involving passing legislation in 2021 after he took office next January," Rove said.

Rove added the day the first American died of COVID-19 in Kirkland, Washington, Biden “says ‘don't go out and buy a mask because they don't work.’ They were dismissive it was going to get serious.”

“And he says ‘as it warms up, it's going to move to the southern hemisphere like the flu does. This is not going to to be that serious’,” he said.

“In January and February and March, several words never crossed the lips of the former vice president of the United States. Masks, social distancing…lockdowns.”

“As late as early April he is talking about the utility of voting in person as opposed to doing a mail-in ballot,” Rove said. 

“So, the idea that he is somehow on top of this is bologna,” Rove said. “He knows it.”
