Mick Mulvaney Slams Media for Trying to Use Coronavirus to Destroy Trump

White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney took a swipe at the media for using the Coronavirus as a weapon to destroy Trump.

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney took a swipe at the media for using the Coronavirus as a weapon to destroy President Trump.

“The reason you’re seeing so much attention to it today, they think that this is what’s going to bring down the president,” Mulvaney said on Friday, according to Breitbart News.

The left-wing media has spun up its attacks on the Trump administration’s response to the Coronavirus despite that we only have a handful of cases in the U.S. and no one has died.

On Thursday, President Trump announced that he was putting Vice President Mike Pence in charge of the U.S. response to the outbreak.

But instead of reporting the facts, the media is seeking to use the story as a weapon.

“The word this morning is, we’re controlling the message and that it’s a political issue, not a medical issue,” Mulvaney said. “That is completely false.”

Mulvaney then blasted the media for its effort to fan the flames of the stock market dip.

“Really, what I might do today to calm the market is to tell the people to turn their televisions off for 24 hours,” he continued.

Mulvaney also scoffed at the idiotic claim of the media that the travel ban from China was “racist.”

“We were accused by some on the left of being racist for doing that,” Mulvaney said. “True. I’m not making this up. That was in the press, that this was an anti-Asian policy that we were doing this.”

He also noted that the Coronavirus is a bad strain of the flu, but nothing like Ebola or SARS. Mulvaney went on to add that some schools may see shutdowns in the near future and there may be impacts on public transportation, but it really is not as bad as the media is making it out.

He also took a swipe at Democrats for ignoring the briefing that the White House held on the virus six weeks ago. The White House held a session on the response to the virus but only a handful of senators and congressman bothered to show up.

“What was still going on four or five weeks ago? Impeachment, and that’s all the press wanted to talk about,” he said. “While real news was happening … the press was covering their hoax of the day because they thought it would bring down the president.”

CBS News Caught Passing Video of Overload Italian ER as Pressed New York Hospitals

In another effort to “get” Trump, CBS News was caught using video of an overloaded hospital in Italy as if it were a New York hospital.

In another effort to “get” Trump, CBS News was caught using video of an overloaded hospital in Italy as if it were a New York hospital that has been overrun by coronavirus patients.

CBS was attempting to paint a dire picture of New York being inundated by sick patients and claiming that it is all evil orange man’s fault.

But last week, CBS used footage of a hospital in Italy shot by Sky News during its report about New York.

On Wednesday’s CBS This Morning, CBS aired a segment of N.Y. Gov. Cuomo once again whining that he is being ill-served by President Trump.

In its March 25 report, CBS insisted that reporter David Begnaud “takes a look at how the pandemic is being handled across the U.S.”

But here is the report by Sky News that shows the exact same hospital footage, only it is properly reported as an ER in Italy.

In its March 22 report, Sky News said:

Staff frantically wave us out of the way, pushing gurneys carrying men and women on mobile respirators – it’s not chaos, but it is hectic.

They rush past wards already rammed with beds all filled with people in terrible distress – gasping for air, clutching at their chests and at tubes pumping oxygen into their oxygen-starved lungs.

Of course, they couldn’t find any video of U.S. hospitals being overrun. So, they used a foreign video and pretended it was New York.

Once again, the U.S. media uses fake video, misdirection, and subtle falsehoods to try to fool American audiences into thinking that Trump is evil orange man.

The media are the enemy of the people.

PBS Reporter Gleefully Says Attacking Trump Must Be a ‘Team Sport’ for the Media

Proving massive bias in the media, PBS “reporter” Yamiche Alcindor was heard happily exclaiming that the role of the press is to be Trump’s enemy.

Proving the massive bias in the media, PBS “reporter” Yamiche Alcindor was heard happily exclaiming that the role of the press is to be Trump’s enemy.

Speaking to left-winger Ali Velshi on MSNBC on Sunday, Alcindor was heard crowing that attacking Trump is a “team sport” for the media. And she insisted that the whole of the press corps must align to the attack and must “have each other’s back” in opposition to Trump.

Alcindor was speaking about an example of the media’s ignorant treatment of the president during another contentious press conference on Sunday. Alcindor was whining that she didn’t get enough attention during the conference.

“I have to say thank you to Jeremy of CNN for giving me the opportunity to ask my second question. We know now that covering President Trump sometimes is like a team sport. We have to have each other’s back in the press corps and Jeremy had my back today,” Alcindor told the MSNBC host.

Alcindor added:

So, he’s been telling people, the country, churches should be packed by Easter Sunday and today he had to admit, “Actually I have to extend my guidelines to April 30th.” And, of course, my question was about the fact that he’s been saying repeatedly that governors don’t need the medical equipment that they’re requesting, specifically saying New York doesn’t need 30 to 40,000 ventilators. Of course, the President lashed out.

Alcindor is another one of those hardcore leftists who claim that the media’s job is to “hold people accountable.”

This, of course, is 1960’s clap crap. A reporter’s job is to report the facts. Not crusade against people.

If their facts lead to trouble for ne’er-do-wells, that is fine. But their job is NOT to crusade. Just to report.

Still, what is obvious here is that Alcindor also thinks that the job of the media is to destroy Trump at all costs.

Just more proof for why the U.S. government should immediately stop funding public broadcasting.

Statistics Show that U.S.A. Trails Six Other Nations in Coronavirus Cases

When adjusted for population, cases of coronavirus in the U.S. lag behind six other countries, a fact that stands contrary to what Democrats claim.

When adjusted for population, cases of coronavirus in the U.S. lag behind six other countries, a fact that stands contrary to what Democrats and their media lapdogs say about Donald Trump’s actions endangering the U.S.A.

The media played its best partisan card on Thursday claiming that the US.A. led the world in the number of cases of the virus. But this is misleading news. You know the old saying. Figures can’t lie, but liars can figure.

As Daily Wire reported:

It is true that the United States may be behind many other nations as to when the coronavirus took hold. As Philip Klein of the Washington Examiner notes, “Furthermore, not all countries have the same metrics for reporting cases, nor do they all test at the same rate or administer tests with the same reliability.” And nations such as China and Iran are not known for their transparency.

Using the raw case counts from the Johns Hopkins University database for the top 10 countries on Thursday, Klein explained, “So, for instance, on a raw basis, there are 83,507 reported cases of the coronavirus in the U.S., compared with 80,589 in Italy. But the U.S. has about 5.5 times the population of Italy. If Italy were scaled up to the U.S. population, it would have the equivalent of 443,237 cases.”

Klein went on to note what the numbers of each major country would be if they all had the same population of the U.S.A.

Switzerland: 457,683
Italy: 443,237
Spain: 405,731
Germany: 174,693
France: 147,030
Iran: 118,341
United States: 83,507
United Kingdom: 59,045
South Korea: 58,644
China: 19,882

So, what that in mind, clearly the U.S. is far from the worst of all as the media tried to claim as on Thursday.

But who need truth and facts when your only real goal is to destroy Trump?

Dr. Brix Slams Media for False Claims, Especially About How Many Will Get Coronavirus and Die from It

Dr. Deborah Brix, head of the White House’s Coronavirus Response effort, is warning the public not to fall for all the fake news out there.

Dr. Deborah Brix, head of the White House’s Coronavirus Response effort, is warning the public not to fall for all the fake news out there, especially about how many people with catch the virus and then die from it.

During a press conference on Wednesday, Brix noted that many of the wild-eyed claims in the media are based on models that had zero controls and she slammed the media for pushing bad science.

“That is nowhere close to the numbers you see people putting out there. I think it has frightened the American people,” she said standing next to the vice president.

Brix was at it again on Thursday, too, bursting the media’s tidal wave of lies.

In another segment of her address on Thursday, Brix noted that 19 out of 50 states had early cases of coronavirus, but have persistently low levels of cases.

“That’s almost 40% of the country with extraordinary low numbers and they are testing,” she said.

Brix also shot down those claiming that 60 percent of the country will become infected with the coronavirus.

The media is making this outbreak worse. Don’t believe them.

‘New York Times’ Lies about Facts about Trump and Ventilators

The ‘New York Times’ has been caught lying about the number of ventilators available during this coronavirus scare.

Published

on

The New York Times has been caught lying about what the Society of Critical Care Medicine has said about the number of ventilators available during this coronavirus scare.

On Wednesday, New York Times correspondent Trip Gabriel tweeted out the paper’s fake news. Gabriel wrote, “There are at most 200k ventilators in the US. One million are expected to be needed. Experts say the Trump administration approach – let states fend for themselves in the market rather than a central authority step in – will doom people to die.”

The tweet referred to the paper’s story that day entitled, “Amid Desperate Need for Ventilators, Calls Grow for Federal Intervention.”

But as former Times reporter Alex Berenson noted, the Times simply lied about what the SCCM said.

Berenson jumped to Twitter with a trenchant thread to show how the paper outright lied.

Once again, we find that the New York Times is constantly filled with lies.

POLL: 61 Percent of Voters Approve of How Trump Is Responding to Coronavirus

A majority of Americans approve of how President Donald Trump is responding to the coronavirus crisis despite the daily attacks by the media.

Published

A majority of Americans approve of how President Donald Trump is responding to the coronavirus crisis despite the daily attacks by the media and the Democrats.

According to a The Hill/HarrisX daily poll, 61 percent of respondents say that the Trump administration is taking strong enough measures to slow or stop the spread of the current coronavirus strain. Meanwhile, only 39 percent said they do not feel the president is acting properly.

Despite the good showing for the president, The Hill still tried to bad mouth its own poll saying that the good result may just be am effect of the “rally around” feeling people have for their leaders in a crisis.

“Publics tend to rally around their presidents in time of national emergency, and it’s something we’ve observed in many situations,” Karlyn Bowman, public opinion analyst and senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, told The Hill.

“We’re seeing strong agreement in many polls that the Trump administration is taking strong measures,” Bowman added, “that said, I think we have to be cautious about the deep differences on Republicans, Democrats, and Independents on your question. We’re seeing that in other polls too, which indicates that partisan disagreements are still there, still very powerful and that could limit the rally.”

The Hill added:

The March 14-15 survey found 88 percent of Republican voters agreed that the Trump White House was taking strong enough measures to combat coronavirus, along with 57 percent of independents.

However, only 41 percent of Democratic voters felt the same.

Still, even as The Hill attempted to defeat its own poll by bad mouthing Trump, a recent Gallup poll finds that the president has maintained his 49 percent approval that he has been hovering around for the last few weeks.

Gallup found that Trump was at 49 percent in February and fell a few points recently just ahead of the pandemic. But as the nation begins to take stock of Trump’s actions during this crisis, his numbers have gone back up again.

Trump’s Coronavirus Doc Anthony Fauci Destroys Media’s Attempt to Bash Trump

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the president’s medical spokesman for the coronavirus response, is slamming the media for trying to turn him against Trump.

Published

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the president’s medical spokesman for the coronavirus response, is slamming the media for trying to turn him against Trump and for bashing the president’s response to the virus.

The media has been working overtime to turn Dr. Fauci’s appearances during Trump’s coronavirus press conferences into a means to attack Trump over the media’s imagined “Trump failures” during this current viral scare.

Many members of the left-wing, sold-out media have claimed that Trump is somehow going against the advice of scientists and medical professionals with his policies to respond to the virus.

But Dr. Fauci says that these “reports” are all fake news and he is sick and tired of the media endangering the country with its obsession to “get” Trump at any cost. Fauci says that the media’s attempt to “pit” him against Trump just isn’t helpful.

The medical adviser went on Washington D.C.’s WMAL radio and spoke with Mary Walter and Vince Coglianese, the hosts of Mornings on the Mall, Daily Caller reported.

“Obviously, this is something that’s under very intense discussion,” Fauci told the radio duo when asked about the 15-day social isolation idea pushed by Trump. “What the president is trying to do is to balance the public health issues with the fact that this is having an enormous impact on the economy of the country, which may actually indirectly even cause a considerable amount of harm and difficultly, even health wise.”

“So, it’s a delicate balancing act, which the president is trying to get it right, and we’re under very intense discussions right now about what the most appropriate timeline is and if we do modify it, how we modify it,” he added.

Fauci also assured the nation that Trump is working very hard to logically thread the needle between working to halt the spread of the virus while trying not to destroy our entire economy over it all.

“There is a discussion and a delicate balance about what’s the overall impact of shutting everything down completely for an indefinite period of time,” Fauci said. “So, there’s a compromise. If you knock down the economy completely and disrupt infrastructure, you may be causing health issues, unintended consequences, for people who need to be able to get to places and can’t. You do the best you can.”

Naturally, the media does not care about what is good for America. They only care about where they can find the next weapon with which to attack Trump.
