Another day, another puffed up Trump scandal by the media. This time, they are using quotes from a Bob Woodward book to suggest Trump wasn’t concerned with COVID back in February. They are trying to suggest the president didn’t care or didn’t do “enough” to battle the disease. Now, Trump is firing back, asking a very good question to Mr. Woodward.
Democrats really do think we are so stupid, huh? Since March, they have been trying to float the idea that President Trump “bungled” the COVID crisis. They crafted a bogus narrative that he didn’t do “enough” or that he didn’t care. Yet nobody on the left appeared to offer a better plan to battle the China virus.
In fact, when Trump formed a task force in January and closed the border to China, liberals said the virus was no big deal. They even called him racist for closing the border. In February, Nancy Pelosi was in Chinatown, urging people to travel. In early March, New York health officials told locals they didn’t need to change their daily routine.
But now, we’re supposed to believe it was Trump that was all wrong and the left right? Do they think we’ve forgotten the last nine months?
Bob Woodward published comments where Trump urged calm during the early stages of the pandemic. The media have twisted them to suggest he lied. Or he didn’t care. Or he downplayed the virus. Or something—listen, they’re really not sure what they are saying, except that Orange Man Bad.
Trump himself has an interesting question for Bob, one that he can’t answer.
Bob Woodward had my quotes for many months. If he thought they were so bad or dangerous, why didn’t he immediately report them in an effort to save lives? Didn’t he have an obligation to do so? No, because he knew they were good and proper answers. Calm, no panic! [Source: Twitter]
If Trump’s comments were so “trouble” and would have led to many deaths, why didn’t Woodward come forward with them back when Trump made them?
Trump accuses Woodward of staying silent, instead of trying to save lives. He makes a good point. The media is claiming Trump’s actions lead to “thousands of deaths.” Of course, they ignore how Democrat governors made choices that increased the danger. Or how Democrats downplayed the virus, well into March.
No, it was a few comments that Trump made that created this pandemic. Oh, and let’s not forget how China let this virus loose on the world. But no, let’s blame Orange Man.
If Woodward was really worried about all this, why not release those comments right as the virus was hitting America? Why bother holding onto them just before the, ahem, election?
Even Anthony Fauci, a doctor many believe is on the side of the media, said Trump never downplayed the virus nor ignored his advice. Fauci has no reason to “protect” the president or prop up his administration.
But never let it be said that Democrats let facts get in the way of their agenda.
It was the Democrats who ignored the virus for months. It was the Democrats who imposed abuse, useless lockdowns. It was Democrat governors who forced sick patients into nursing homes. And Democrats let rioters and protesters flood the streets, violating lockdown rules.
Democrats did everything in their power to make this crisis so much worse. If anyone is responsible for those deaths (besides China) it is the left.
We’re waiting for your response, Woodward.
