Morning Greatness: Another Day, Another Anti-Trump Media Freakout

Good Thursday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president meets with the Secretary of State
  • President Trump delivers remarks live from Michigan Freeland, Michigan

Five minutes of hate:

On Wednesday, Bob Woodward released some curated recordings from his interviews with President Trump for his new sensational book. The book is coming out next week. Who cares. Now why would Trump talk to Woodward? WHY? This was a horrible, horrible decision. Trump, if you are reading this, stop giving your enemies the bullets with which to shoot you.

The clip causing so much sturm und drang is about the coronavirus and reads: “I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create a panic,” Trump added at the time. First of all, you need to know that this was released because the Democrats have focus grouped Trump’s weaknesses with undecided and target voters and coronavirus is a big concern. We are hearing about this now, because it hurts Trump. You must always remember that every news story and every action from the Democrats and media are carefully selected to hurt the president and not because they are news worthy.

So the actual clip is causing freak outs because IT SHOWS THAT TRUMP DOWN PLAYED THE VIRUS. This is the narrative. What it really shows is the president didn’t want to panic people but also, we didn’t know much about the virus, that is why we call it a novel virus. At the time, in January and February and March, we didn’t know mostly because China was lying and did not cooperate. Trump did not want to cause a panic, and he was right not to do so. Can you imagine what would happen in a national panic?

It’s also important to remember that the Democrats had access to the same information the president had. The Gang of 8 is briefed on these kinds of threats but the Democrats were too busy impeaching the president at the time to take the information as serious as they say Trump should have. The left was also invested in contradicting the president no matter what he said so Nancy Pelosi was telling people to go to Chinatown and hug people, Bill DeBlasio was telling people to go out and enjoy themselves and Joe Biden was saying Trump’s China travel ban was racist. The media was also along for the ride.

The Democrats are desperately trying to blame the virus on Trump to hurt him but also to divert the real responsibility from Democrat mayors who mismanaged the situation. Cuomo put sick people in nursing homes where they infected and killed thousands, state economies have been destroyed because Democrat leaders have shutdown businesses. Suicides are way up, crime is up and that is not on Trump, he doesn’t control the states, but the Democrats and media want you to think so.

The kill shot to this artificial hysteria came from none other than Dr. Anthony Fauci who was interviewed yesterday and said, “No, I didn’t,” Fauci responded. “I didn’t get any sense that he was distorting anything. I mean in my discussions with him, they were always straightforward about the concerns that we had. We related that to him. And when he would go out, I’d hear him discussing the same sort of things. He would often say, ‘We just got through with a briefing with the group from the task force,’ and would talk about it. So it may have happened, but I have not seen that kind of distortion.”

Was Trump breaking from his advisers? “You were there through that whole thing,” Roberts said. “Was that the playbook or was that the president just going his own direction?”

“I don’t think so, John,” Fauci responded. “I don’t recall anything different than in our discussions that we had with the president that he said things quite similar publicly.”

Ouch man. That has got to hurt but it won’t stop until the next artificial hysteria which is Whistleblower says top Trump appointees tried to censor reports on Russian influence. Stay tuned for that.
