(Liberty Bell) – President Trump has been delivering daily briefings during press conferences on the status of our nation’s fight against the coronavirus outbreak that is sweeping the country and leaving a path of misery and death in its wake, proving he’s exactly the kind of leader we need right now.
While all of this has been going on, the country of China, where this horrid virus originated, has been doing their best to pass the buck and avoid taking responsibility for the havoc that has been wrought on the world by pointing the finger for everything at the United States.
Due to this, Trump has been calling the coronavirus the “Chinese virus,” which has not at all been sitting well with liberal PC police, especially in the media who have tried to pass the president off as racist for using the term.
That’s not all they’ve tried to attack him over. In fact, a reporter tried to slam him for not being more prepared for the outbreak with tests and other needed supplies, noting he had himself said he saw the pandemic coming.
Trump obliterated her.
Here’s more from Gateway Pundit:
Kristen Welker: You did say that this was a pandemic, that it was coming. So why was the United States not prepared with more testing and supplies?
President Trump: We were very prepared. And the only thing we weren’t prepared for was the media. The media has not treated it fairly. I’ll tell you how prepared I was. I called for a ban from people coming in from China long before anybody thought it was… In fact it was your network. I believe they called me a racist because I did that. It was made the people in the room they called me racist and other words because I did that because I went so early. So when you say we weren’t prepared had I let these tens of thousands of people come in from China a day we would have had something right now that would have been, that you wouldn’t have even recognized compared to where we are… So when you say I wasn’t prepared, I was the first one to do the ban. Now the countries are following what I did. But the media doesn’t acknowledge that. They know it’s true but they don’t want to right about it.
That’s definitely going to leave a mark. A big one. You’d think by now the media would realize that going toe-to-toe with Trump, especially with information that’s not accurate or that’s essentially nothing more than an attack on his presidency. The president is a counterpuncher, which means he waits for someone else to swing first then he swings back, and typically, his blows are much more powerful.
Like in this instance.
The mainstream media has not at all been shy about taking the coronavirus outbreak and politicizing it, hoping it wil help them defeat the president in the November election. It’s the whole “don’t let a crisis go to waste” principle in action.
It’s shameful to say the least. Hopefully, the media will drop that and focus on keeping people informed without spoon feeding them a worldview.
