The Latest Liberal Hack To Unfairly Accuse Trump Of Racism For Calling Coronavirus “Chinese Virus”

(Liberty Bell) – Can you even believe that they’re still trying to push this line?

The left has been trying to claim for weeks, perhaps even months, that to call the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, the “Wuhan virus” or the “Chinese virus” or a “foreign-born virus” is racist.

This is in spite of the fact that the virus originated in Wuhan, China, a foreign location which is not…here. The United States.

To call it the Wuhan/Chinese/foreign-born virus is not only not racist, it couldn’t be more accurate.

And yet the top dogs in the White House press pool just joined in on this outrageous smear, becoming the latest hack to accuse President Donald Trump of racism for using one of these terms, specifically, the “Chinese virus.”

ABC News’ White House reporter Cecilia Vega lashed out at the president during a Wednesday press briefing from the coronavirus task force for referring to the virus in this manner.

Vega, who aggressively questioned the president even interrupting him and trying to get his task force members to disavow his use of the term, did not directly say that he was a racist but did declare that “a lot of people say” it is racist to use this terminology.

Trump replied by noting that the Chinese, these poor pitiful victims of racism, had falsely accused United States soldiers of giving the virus to China.

Previously, White House advisor Kellyanne Conway had been asked about the use of the term “Chinese virus”.

Vega asked: “Why do you keep calling this the Chinese virus? There are reports of dozens of incidents of bias against Chinese-Americans in this country. Your own aide Secretary Azar (HHS) said he does not use this term. He says ethnicity does not cause the virus. Why do you keep using this? A lot of people say it’s racist.”

Trump replied: “Because it comes from China. It’s not racist at all, no, not at all. It comes from China. That’s why. It comes from China. I want to be accurate.”

Vega, gesturing at members of the task force standing behind Trump, asked:
“Sir, you’ve got Chinese-American citizens in this country. You have aides behind you, are you comfortable with this term?”

Trump replied: “I have a great, I have great love for all of the people from our country. But, um, as you know China tried to say at one point, maybe they stopped now, that it was caused by American soldiers. That can’t happen. It’s not gonna happen. Not as long as I’m president. It comes from China.”

  1. Just call a spade ♠️ a spade. Where do you think it came from. I am glad the President is not politically correct. You can’t tell any good jokes anymore with out stepping on somebody’s toes. grow up!

  2. All of the above are absolutely correct, more bthatn I could say and relevant. These liberal biased TDS people are clowns. They are not reporters, they are biased opinion writers controlled by the DNC, WAPO, NYT, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC and now China.

  3. Cecelia Vega has been a liberal thorn in my side since I saw her on GMA. She’s an awful person! Between her and George S. on GMA, I don’t know who is more biased against our President. I stopped watching GMA because of them. I am now a fervent follower of Fox News! They are fair, Christian, and willing to listen to both sides!

  4. All the comments about other named viruses are valid points. more importantly, can’t we stop focusing on something as trivial a what the virus is called and focus on the larger issue of how to avoid or recover from it.

  5. Ms VEGA , I was studying in Italy in the late 50’s and was present during the infamous (ASIATIC) which by logic was obviously borne in ASIA. Does that mean that we should have hated the Asians or begrudge the Asiatic people?
    In the late teens circa 1917 / 1918 – My grandmother died of the (HISPANIOLA) (i.e.) the (SPANISH-FLU) does that become a catalyst to begrudge the people of Spain ? There is only one obvious logic to your (campanalistic) and wanton publicity seeking brays which is purely based on mere ignorance on such historical events that have brought mere sorrow to many inhabitants which you obviously are (NOT) well acquainted with. In view of your questionable demean toward the President of the United States and petulant attitude as well . I might suggest on some fervent studies on such matters as above and also that of NOT being so hasty in wanting to show your haughty mannerisms toward the leader of the United States of America whether the office be held by a Republican or Democrat – Male or Female –

  6. RACIST? We have had the Spanish Flu, the Asian bird flu, the German measles and I imagine many more. Reporters need to check what they are saying or are they just ignorant.

  7. Ms. Vega is described as a professional journalist.
    She is not however recognized as someone who has a grasp of the big picture, an ability to convey the facts and most of all someone who has a appreciation of the matter she is in theory reporting.
    In this instance the World is going through an event never been experienced before. Any previous epidemic occurred without the benefit of instant communication, jet travel and international inter-reaction.
    Her mind and focus was single topic. Her reality that hundreds, no thousands are and will die, the economy of the world will take decades to recover was completely elapsed by the fact that the ongoing calamity had the name of the originating ethnic group.
    She is a true representative and example of the level of the (so called) reporting media.

  8. Corona Virus is not Racist like Reporters are it kills any and all who gets it if the survive they are dam lucky and even more lucky if they do not get it at all!!

  9. We buy products that say made in China. Is that racist? Or made in Thailand? Are we supposed to say these products are “foreign made” as opposed to the country of origin? This virus came from Wuhan, China. We rightfully call it the Wuhan virus or the Chinese virus. The real problem is the bleeding heart libs who are trying to stir the pot and point bony little fingers at President Trump. The term is in no way racist and the libs need to get a grip on reality.

  10. Cecilia pleased use your brain Trump is great and very attentif we are happy that this is not obama just talking about black a lot of people are in serius problem we have a lot of elderly we have to safe most of them

  11. She is supposed to be a reporter. You can’t tell me that there aren’t more important events to ask about than trying to make a racist statement out of a fact.

    • i think her network and all the others are too invested in China. It’s not about race it’s about money. If there is a don’t buy from China movement they is screwed financially. i started my own don’t buy from china 2 years ago

  12. Have ANY of these ‘agitators’ er um excuse me ‘reporters’ (hahaha) come up with a ‘politically correct’ name for this virus? NOPE – didn’t think so. Even as I type this, yet ANOTHER twit is asking the same tired old crap during the update on live teevee.

  13. My father was born in 1900; and in 1918 he was shipping clerk at the NW Pacific RR Scotia, California Depot. The Spanish flu hit and millions were killed in the world. Every Lumberjack and Loggers in the prime of life, never sick a day in their life, went into hospital came out in a casket. He always told me about the SPANISH FLU. And he predicted that the next pandemic will be horrific. Vega the diarrhea mouther; is ecstatic because of the devastation. She wants more Americans to go to China and catch it. So she has something to write about. Wish she would wake up and smell the roses.

  14. Vega – you’re an nincompoop. There’s nothing racist about the naming of the virus. In my opinion, people who so causally throw the “race” card, are typically racist themselves. Get a life and stop trying to divide the country!

  15. I am so sick of negativity from the media and Hollywood.I think we should pack a bunch of pacifiers around and give them out to left idiots.I no longer can watch certain movies because of stars thinking they have to say negative things if a mic is in front of them.Do they really think we care about their political stance.

  16. THE PRESIDENT SAYS THINGS SOMETIMES I DONT LIKE ??????BUT THE MEDIA HAS WENT SO FOR LEFT I DONT BELIEVE THEY CAN EVER GET BACK TO THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD

  17. Media mania stoking this contagion goes on no end in repeated disinformation, bogus accusations & many ignorant propaganda fetid of dark vile politics at this crucial time.
    Bill Mahre & his nasty ilk must be reveling at the rising $8+ Trillion US economic loss almost half of our GNP & the stock market’s 1/3 crash. Half the American workforce at the least will be deprived of earnings in the coming months, a dire epic circumstance.
    Concerned 2020.

    • He a
      Called it the China virus meaning coming from the country.Not the Chinese (which they live all over the world)

  18. Just proof of how strong our Leader is. Telling the truth has been a joke with past Presidents and present day Democrats. Trump is not a politician. He is a realist. The Democrats might take notes on how to be truthful and faithful to our great country. I am so fed up with all the weak attacks on our Leader with no facts to back up any of their childish and ignorant claims……. TRUMP2020 and beyond.

  19. It is sad that the media cannot pull it together to support our President for all he is doing in a time of crisis. They will never be happy!

  20. Will all of you Democrats, please quit crying about everything. Go to Wall-mart and buy yourself a Pacifier and Shut-Up. If you dip the Pacifier in Cyanide before inserting it in your mouth, the world be better off. Thanks

  21. I would like to ask our Government to pass a Law , to take the word Racist out of the Vocabulary. It is being misused and has become a problem. According to everybody that if you don’t agree with them you are Racist.

  22. I still find it hard to believe that these people are so stupid. Lets blame the President for everything. Democrats are really going to the deep end. Lets move them to China and see if it was started there

  23. It’s so great to have a president who’s not afraid to tell the truth and stand up to these fools in the media. Trump2020
