Democrats are filming Wuhan virus hysteria for all it’s worth.
They’ve used the virus to hammer Donald Trump and his administration for months.
But Democrats are ignoring what Dr. Anthony Fauci said about one coronavirus lie.
Joe Biden had a narrow path to victory in the general election until the carnage of the coronavirus.
Prior to that, the economy had been doing well, and the Democrats had no answer.
It wasn’t until the virus spread through the country that Biden surged ahead in all of the polls.
But now that the virus is dying down, the Democrats are still mining that vein for all the negative news cycles they can.
Watergate reporter Bob Woodward was granted access by Trump to interview him for an upcoming book.
Woodward’s last book titled “Fear” was a hit piece on Trump that featured plenty of anonymous sourcing, so Woodward was unlikely to be charitable in his characterizations of Trump.
In the last book, Woodward released a snippet of audio where Trump said he wanted to downplay the virus.
The so-called mainstream media used this as an excuse to say that Trump didn’t take the virus seriously, or that he was indifferent to the death of Americans.
But that couldn’t be further from the truth.
First, the press ignored the part of Trump’s statement where he said he didn’t want to create a panic.
In fact, Trump said this publicly shortly after he sat for the interview with Woodward.
So the Democrats’ smoking gun was actually addressed out in the open by Trump.
Moreover, Dr. Fauci said that Trump’s behavior behind the scenes was not indicative of someone who didn’t care.
Fauci said on Fox News:
“When we would get up in front of the press conferences which were very, very common after our discussions with the President, he really didn’t say anything different than we discussed when we were with him.”
So according to Fauci, Trump was not relaying false information to the public based on conversations with Fauci.
Democrats have implored Americans to listen to the experts, but that only applies when the experts agree with them.
Otherwise, the word of the experts is gospel.
But since Fauci is refuting the narrative that Trump didn’t care at all about the death of Americans due to the virus, he will be largely ignored by the press.
The lie persists that Trump uniquely bungled the coronavirus handling even though it’s a global pandemic that’s ravaged many countries.
Joe Biden gets to present himself as a better option for the virus, but all of his proposals have already been implemented by the Trump administration.
However, it seems like this strategy is wearing thin with the American people.
Biden said he would potentially shut down the country again if he were elected president.
That was a huge mistake by the Biden campaign as millions of Americans still find themselves unemployed and small businesses have been destroyed.
