We saw last night, Jim Acosta, after trying to confront and mix up Trump in his White House Briefing, then turn to Dr. Anthony Fauci to try to snag him into his fight with Trump, Dr. Anthony Fauci was having none of it, ended up scolding him for trying to create misinformation.
The problem with this is that no matter what anyone says, the left will never own up to the fact that they’re actively resisting everything Trump increased the numbers of cases at the stated of this plague.
When Trump first put in place a travel ban against China, the Democrats came out and attacked Trump for xenophobia; it had nothing to do with this. Instead, it was to contain the virus as much as possible to China. Italy, not wanting to show any xenophobia did not do this, instead had one of the most significant influx of Chinese tourist in the world, now they are looking at mass deaths and the illness spreading much worse then it should have been.
What is more surprising is how the so-called ‘Fact Checkers” were going in overtime to cover for this. You had Statesman say that Biden never said it was xenophobia that drove this; but listen to his words, he does in a roundabout way:
Biden tweeted: “We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus. We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency.”
If one is going to use these same words in a sentence while you are accusing, it is precisely what you are implying. This is like me saying, “Joe is not acting right towards John, but then he always gives in to his racism.” This is political paltering; it’s said so in a way to give an excuse that you did not say it while you did.
VOX went further, they openly accused Trump of xenophobia in their article “Trump’s Coronavirus Speech Was Laced With Xenophobia.”
The reaction to this was instantaneous, the outrage palpable:
When the replies started to strike home, he reacted but did so in trying to imply he never accused, suggesting he was misunderstood.
I will admit, the greatest reply was the scolding he got from a now ex-democrat:
The left is great at playing the victim, but accepting responsibility? NEVER. They will redirect the conversation to place attention elsewhere, run into it all the time with debates, usually is a tactic used when they see they are losing a conversation. What we have is a typical case of misinformation passed out with partial truths, “Trump called the Pillow Guy to the Podium,” while ignoring why, that he was retooling his plant, this way it was presented with a partial truth to give a perception different then what the action truth was, this is the part that is misinformation.
They are the ones that have used this terrible time we are suffering from to try to attack Trump, push their agenda, thus showing they are not interested in us, only in gathering back the power they feel they unjustly lost. It t is time we call them out for this, point out their attempts of using misinformation to push a narrative that has parts of truth in it but is told in a way that’s a lie.
