He has gone too far…
During a segment on CNN, host Anderson Cooper decided to accuse President Trump of being racist based on a previous interview.
In the interview Trump had said, “So we go out, we test 25 million people, which is a lot. You never thought that’s even people. Most people didn’t. We could go up a lot higher than that, and I guess we are. I tell my people it’s a double-edged sword. We do so much testing, and we have kids with sniffles, and all of a sudden, we report a case, and they are in no danger whatsoever.”
Cooper stated, “Thank God that hospitals and doctors do know more about this virus now and are able to treat it better. It seems instead to be part of the same contempt he’s had for testing, period because it makes him look bad. That’s what he felt from the beginning of this. Just think about how warped that is and plays into the larger disregard. Keeping them honest, this war-time president took himself out of the fight months ago, and being more honest, he was never in the fight, to begin with. He avoided wars and talks tough. When this viral war began, he was nowhere to be found. Maybe those old bone spurs of his flaring up, but he wasn’t in the fight. He wants us to suck it up.”
Cooper also added, “This president wants you to suck it up, not just the virus but his failure to take it seriously. His inaction went all throughout the month of February, his lies and promises disappearing. He wants you to accept what people in no other country are being told to accept because now this isn’t just a virus killing us and making people sick: it’s incompetence and a failure of leadership. Instead of working around the clock on this, visiting hospitals, rallying the troops, rallying the public to wear masks, fight complacency, care for elderly and the sick, this president is simply declaring victory, declaring COVID 99% harmless instead of talking about the virus and doing things about it, he’s spending his time to trying to distract now with racist and jingoistic talk. He’s just leaning full into the racist he’s long been, he’s just letting us see it more clearly now than ever before.”
All this talk about Trump not doing anything or not doing enough to combat the coronavirus seems to be coming exclusively from the far left. Everyone knows that Trump is doing his best and no other Democratic president would be able to do better.
