As ever the media left out the context of the conversation with Bob Woodward which was that Trump “didn’t want people to panic” when it deliberately edited the comment to say that he “downplayed the virus.”
Trump said virtually the same thing in an April 2020 press conference at the White House. Why no outrage then? Ahh, because there is an election that needs narratives to switch away from riots, looting and civil unrest to a virus where deaths have been largely caused in Democrat run cities and states.
How strange that Joe Biden said in February, “it’s not a time to panic about coronavirus.”
Orange man bad. Whatever Trump says is bad. Total silence about Biden. Who knew?
Perhaps the most telling display of “minimal panic” over coronavirus has been the behaviour of so many Democrat mayors, governors and members of congress who have broken so many of the laws they proclaim is so dangerous for the people who elected them. Surely if there was a need to panic, these politicians wouldn’t be sneaking off to get their hair blown out or reopen gyms inside public buildings while the rest are closed to the public.
CNN has been so worried about coronavirus that it made a point to admonish Trump for the lack of diversity on the response team.
Make no mistake, this will be 60 straight days of mudslinging. This type of muck will be churned out by the mainstream media non-stop in order to prevent Trump from reelection. Last week it was comments from anonymous sources that Trump had disparaged fallen soldiers as “suckers and losers.” Even John Bolton, who hates Trump, denied he ever said it and he was there. Had Trump mentioned it, what an explosive chapter for his book.
Who knew that 86% of people polled think that the media is divisive. The worst numbers in living memory.
