With the country reeling from the virus pandemic, CNN continues its job of spreading fake and dishonest reporting. One of their top Trump antagonists, Jim Acosta, tried to attack Trump with a bogus question. The president was quick to put the con artist in his place.
Let’s get the facts straight, the virus problem began way back in October 2019. Yeah, you read that right. China faced this outbreak way back then. Rumors and a few stories starting coming out of the country in late November and December. But only in January, after infected people had months to travel to other shores, did China say or do anything.
Ask yourself this, what was our government doing over that period of time? Oh, yeah, they were pushing a bogus impeachment trial. Leaders that could have otherwise watched the situation in China and prepared quickly were forced to deal with the House Democrats’ idiotic attempt to take down Trump.
Pelosi and others have criticized Trump’s “slow” response to this crisis. But where were they back in December and January? They were riding their impeachment rain, full steam ahead.
Worse than that is how they continue to distort this situation. With many sick and many more forced out of work, CNN is focused on their pathetic agenda to attack Trump. This is what Jim Acosta asked Trump yesterday.
“What do you say to Americans who are upset with you over the way you downplayed this crisis over the last several months? ‘We have it very much under control in this country.’ ‘The coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. It’s going to disappear. It’s like a miracle. It will disappear.’ March 4: ‘We have a very small number of people in this country infected.’ March 10: ‘We’re prepared. We’re doing a great job with it. It will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.’ What do you say to Americans who feel you got this wrong?” [Source: Daily Wire]
Hang on! Acosta is accusing the president of “downplaying” the crisis weeks back. But what were Democrats doing over that same time? In early March, New York leaders said this virus wasn’t a big deal. They encouraged New Yorkers to go about their business. Nancy Pelosi begged people to come visit San Francisco’s Chinatown. Democrat governor of Louisiana refused to shutdown Mardi Gras.
And guess what? Each of those areas are now being hammered with the virus. Coincidence? Of course not. Its clear Democrats ignored this threat, until it was too late.
Yet Acosta has the gall to accuse Trump of downplaying this whole thing. This is why we call them fake news.
“It will go away, and I do want them to stay calm, and we are doing a great job. If you look at those individual statements, they’re all true. Stay calm. It will go away. You know it is going away and it will go away and we’ll have a great victory. And its people like you and CNN that say things like that — that’s why people just don’t want to listen to CNN any more. You could ask a normal question; the statements I made are — I want to keep the country calm.” [Source: Daily Wire]
The president went on to slam CNN for wanting to cause panic. He scolded Acosta for his “nasty, snarky question” saying he could have asked a real question.
The media has not once tried to help during this situation. Since the problem arose, the MSM has done nothing but stoke fear and panic across the country. They suppress good reports about emerging treatment and the lower risk of spread. They hype up every time a notable figure is even tested. And they make it seem like the world is ending.
It’s their fault local groceries stores are out of toilet paper. It’s their fault local government is taking a knee-jerk reaction approach. And it’s their fault so many struggle with fear and worry right now.
A good enough reason to stop supporting them, once and for all.
