Media Focused on Blaming Coronavirus on Trump

TrumpAfter years of Russia, Russia, Russia and a few months of Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine we now have another bunch of foreigners interfering in our presidential election. The difference is the Opposition Media welcomes this interference because of the damage it may do to President Trump’s re–election.

While Russian ‘interference’ was invisible and the results negligible, Chinese interference, while also invisible, has very tangible results.

The natural, catchy term for his interference would be the Chinese Flu. It’s not entirely precise, but it hits the bullseye on the origin of the disease. Unfortunately, the Speech Police has managed to persuade itself that the most populous nation on earth is inhabited solely by minorities.

That makes any reference to China that contains even the slightest intimation of disease automatically ‘racist.’ So we’re stuck with coronavirus for the duration of the epidemic.

The geographic origin of the disease is immaterial to the left. As far as they’re concerned the coronavirus is a godsend. Dead Americans and an economy on life support are a small price to pay for the left and its media stenographers, if it beats Trump in November.

US deaths and economic upheaval aren’t the fault of a bunch of bat–eating Chinamen. The fault belongs to Trump as far as the OpMedia is concerned. The playbook will be the same one used in the aftermath of Puerto Rico’s Hurricane Maria.

Trump was blamed for power outages, supply snafus, destroyed homes, damp tortillas and deaths that occurred weeks after the hurricane.

Three years later, it turns out hurricane aid failures weren’t Trump’s fault after all. Puerto Rican relief officials are indicted for corruption and it’s discovered other incompetent Puerto Ricans managed to misplace warehouses full of relief supplies. But the damage to Trump’s reputation is already done.

Which was the goal all along.

Currently the focus of the left’s wrath is on the lack of coronavirus test kits. Until Trump acted, any disease testing kit had to receive approval from the FDA before it could be used in the field. That meant there were only federal testing kits when the coronavirus hit, because no one else wanted to jump through FDA hoops on the off chance there might be a disease to test in the future.

The US was dependent on a sole–source provider, the CDC, who manufactured a faulty test. It was another in a long line of government healthcare failures. Trump pointed out this fact and ordered an expedited approval process.

In gratitude the OpMedia has accused Trump of lying and personally blamed him for the shortage of test kits.

A story in the rabidly anti–Trump Daily Mail makes my point. Leftist stenographer Emily Goodin writes, “Donald Trump doubles down on discredited claim OBAMA is to blame for lack of coronavirus testing kits.” Note the all–caps “OBAMA.” That means criticizing The One is heresy and totally out of bounds for decent people.

Emily mentions the test controversy twice the first time “a claim that has been debunked” and the second time, “an accusation that has been shown not to be true.”

She doesn’t even bother to inform readers who was doing the “debunking.” Not so much as a single, lying anonymous source. We’re just supposed to take Emily’s word for it.

There is a problem with that. In the same March 6th issue there’s another story that proves Trump was right all along.

This concerns a North Carolina company that has produced a coronavirus test that is already being used in China, “helping officials there to diagnose more patients, faster.” The test is also being used in South Korea, Japan and Italy.

So if it works, why isn’t the test available here? “But the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved the test under the emergency measure it announced Saturday.”

Proving there was an Obama–era rule change that Trump had to alter. Even the CDC was hamstrung by the Obama micromanagement. Rather than devise a new test, the CDC opted to fix the faulty test. That would be faster, because “even when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) itself developed a test, it had to get approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before distributing it.”

The reason we can’t test for coronavirus like we should and we don’t have nearly enough tests is not Trump’s fault. The delay and consequent response missteps are due solely to the dead hand of Obama functionaries’ micromanagement and control–freakism.

That’s not an explanation you’ll get from the left, which is busy burying the truth beside coronavirus victims. If the OpMedia has its way, you’ll learn what really happened regarding the coronavirus test kit shortage sometime during Gropey Joe Biden’s first term.

I can’t think of one thing that the media and the horrible Dems have given Pres. Trump credit for since he became President. It is disgusting to see the Media trash him all the time, along with Chuckie Cheese and Botox Nancy and their other buddies. The best thing is to make sure that President Trump gets re-elected this year. On another note, I have never seen a man with so much compassion and caring for the people of the United States. We also have to keep the Senate and take back the House and send Pelosi back to CA… Read more »

OK, folks… did anybody else read this:

“…a North Carolina company … has produced a coronavirus test that is already being used in China, “helping officials there to diagnose more patients, faster.” The test is also being used in South Korea, Japan and Italy.

So if it works, why isn’t the test available here? “But the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved the test under the emergency measure it announced Saturday.”

It’s not Trump at all. It’s just SNAFU-style, bureaucratic bumbling that has left the U.S. without test kits.

It should be very concerning to realize that there are so many stupid people in this nation and who believe whatever the mainstream media tells them and they are allowed to vote.

Our Gangster Government — Eye opening. Let’s follow the trail . Everyone needs to read this Slowly, and patiently, because it’s very important….. Here’s what it looks like when all the pieces are sewn together. It smells like conspiracy and treason. From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation. A Grand Jury had been impaneled. Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity.” Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared. Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this… Read more »

I hear all the blame and scare tactics from these stupid reporters but I don’t see them supplying any solutions. I think the best solution would be to arrest and jail these idiots and there editors for spreading false information and hit them where it hurts, in their pocketbooks. The best way to shut up these idiots is to go after their wallets and stop buying their papers, subscriptions to their internet publications and their tv channels. The FCC should use all the power and rules It has to stop this type of anti American Stupidity

The BLAME for the Wuhan virus lies fully with the Chinese Communist Party, and their American socialist friends in the Democrat Party who were the driving force behind trade with communist China, and the ones providing China with a stranglehold on the U.S. economy as well as the opportunity to infect large swaths of our country. We need to strengthen our borders, our military, and re-establish our manufacturing base to once again become independent of communist China, especially in the areas of parts for our energy, and food infrastructure and pharmaceuticals. The Democrat driven media/propaganda complex campaign of lies and… Read more »

The corrupt main street media is totally in the tank to protect the communists and socialists in our government. We are actually in a state of emergency not only because of the Chinese Corona Virus but, more importantly, also because most of our media is run by communists and socialists. These evil traitors have destroyed the free press and are mostly a propaganda machine for those voices who hate President Trump and the Constitution. How much longer will so many Americans allow themselves to be brain washed? Once we lose the existence of a truly free press, we are on… Read more »

What I have seen is that the media is the root of all the troubles. They turned the term prepping into a dirty thing so we aren’t prepared for this at all. They spend so much time and airwaves shooting off their mouths that they don’t have time to do anything constructive. This isn’t political it it is a people thing. We need to come together. Blaming anyone won’t solve the problem and it sure won’t take the problem away. So lets work together and help each other, it is here and we have to deal with it!
