Chinese virus task force showcases deranged media

If you aren’t watching these daily press conferences, you are missing out.  The media vultures come out in force and they are always full of piss and vinegar.  Take a look at these unhinged chyrons from CNN. Freaks.

On April 13th, yesterday, President Trump presented the insane clown posse with a video in the briefing room of their own words and “reporting” during the time they had been criticizing him for not doing anything about the deadly Chinese pathogen spreading around the planet. Trump’s “negligence” is the hot, new narrative for the resistance. Can you imagine, during the height of the Senate impeachment hoax in the beginning of February, that Trump would try to shut down the economy and and tell Americans to go home and shelter-in-place for a mysterious virus that had not been discovered in America yet? Sweet Jesus, no.

It’s important to remember the timeline when listening to the media buffoons spin their tales. On January 30, the CDC announced/was told the Chinese virus was transmitted person-to-person. On January 31st, Trump created a task force and banned travel between the U.S. and China. At the beginning of February, the NYT reported that:

For more than a month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been offering to send a team of experts to China to observe its coronavirus outbreak and help if it can.

Normally, teams from the agency’s Epidemic Intelligence Service can be in the air within 24 hours.

But no invitation has come — and no one can publicly explain why.

And back in December, the Chinese government was “destroying samples and suppressing information about the coronavirus.”

On February 4th, the FDA was directed to speed up our ability to test for the virus. It wasn’t until February 26th, community spread of the virus was announced in the U.S. by the CDC. Even media darling Dr. Fauci was telling people on February 29th not to worry or change their habits.

During yesterday’s press polka, Dr. Fauci had to come out and make a statement, slapping the media for distorting his remarks during a cat and mouse game with resistance operative Jake Tapper. Fauci was responding to some “anonymous sources” the corporate media likes to cook up for click bait. “Sources” told the NYT that Trump ignored advice in the middle of February to issue social distancing guidelines.  Fauci pushed back, “The first and only time that I went in and said we should do mitigation strongly, the response was, ‘yes, we’ll do it.’”

After Fauci made his remark, some press jackal asked the good doctor if he made his remarks voluntarily. “Everything I do is voluntarily,” Fauci said. “Please, don’t even imply that.”

The worst people in the world.

Taiwan releases email ignored by the disgraced WHO

Taiwan has released an email it sent in December to the disgraced World Health Organization asking about person-to-person transmission of the Chinese virus. China considers Taiwan part of China. Taiwan does not. The WHO, a China proxy, does not recognize Taiwan.

Taiwan is accusing WHO of downplaying the severity and spread of the coronavirus in an attempt to pander to China even after Taiwan sounded the alarm about at least seven cases of atypical pneumonia that they were aware of in Wuhan where the virus originated.

When asked about the cases by the media, Taiwan said China’s health authorities said “the cases were believed not SARS; however samples are still under examination, and cases have been isolated for treatment,” according to the contents of an email sent by Taiwan’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention to the WHO on Dec. 31.

The sh!tstains over the WHO denied Taiwan ever sent any email.

WHO denied that Taiwan ever alerted them to the potential person-to-person spread of the virus, but Taiwan’s CDC said that because they specifically mentioned “atypical pneumonia”– reminiscent of SARS, which is transmitted between human contact– “public health professionals could discern from this wording that there was a real possibility of human-to-human transmission of the disease,” they said in a press release.

“However, because at the time there were as yet no cases of the disease in Taiwan, we could not state directly and conclusively that there had been human-to-human transmission,” Taiwan’s CDC said. The WHO continued to maintain, in conjunction with their accomplices in the Chinese communist party, there was no human-to-human contact as late as January 14.
