In this time of crisis the media is choosing to go after President Trump, doing everything they can to trick Americans into believing that he is not handling the outbreak properly.
The mainstream media will do whatever it takes to discredit the president at every single turn, even if that means flat out lying to the public.
Such was the case on Monday, when several media outlets distorted President Trump’s conversation with state governors to make it seem as though he was leaving them to fend for themselves in the fight against the coronavirus.
The president, who spoke with a group of governors about the virus’ continued spread and how they should respond to it, reportedly suggested that they may fare better if they sought out direct sales of needed equipment such as respirators and masks.
“Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves. We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Points of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself.”
Trump clearly was saying that the states had federal support, but that they should also try getting medical equipment themselves to speed up the process, but that’s not what the MSM wanted people to see.
A number of media personalities left out the crucial second half of the president’s statement – the part where he said that the federal government would be “backing” the states.
“Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves” was the misleading part of the quote used in headlines to suggest that the Trump administration intended to simply sit back and watch the states fend for themselves.
While Trump is certainly not new to being attacked by the biased media, one would think that during a national crisis which affects everyone – regardless of party affiliation – the media would back off at least a bit.
That’s certainly not the case, however, as far-left MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell falsely claimed that Donald Trump is to blame for Americans passing from the virus saying, “more people are dead and dying in America tonight because Donald Trump is president.”
O’Donnell said, “The most incompetent and uninformed president in history has led the federal government into the worst emergency response to a pandemic that we have ever seen in this country. One of our guests will tell us that it’s one of the worst responses by any government in the world today. More people are sick in American tonight because Donald Trump is president.”
O’Donnell’s ridiculously ignorant rant continued ,“More people are dead and dying in America tonight because Donald Trump is president. More people are losing more of their life savings and retirement accounts because Donald Trump is president, as we will discuss in this hour.”
