Many states are still in overbearing lockdowns because of the Wuhan virus.
The U.S. economy remains shackled due to lies about the pandemic.
But one Trump official went on CNN and left a host speechless about the coronavirus.
The so-called mainstream media is playing a dangerous game with the Wuhan virus.
They’ve adopted the insane strategy of only highlighting the virus when attacking Trump and the Republicans.
A collective of epidemiologists said protests against coronavirus lockdowns were bad, but “antiracism” protests were righteous.
This type of naked partisanship is what has eroded the people’s confidence in experts and institutions.
Now big media is again trying to fearmonger about the virus while completely ignoring nationwide protests as any contributing factor to a spike in cases.
In New York, contract tracers were barred from asking patients who tested positive if they attended a protest.
HHS Secretary Alex Azar appeared on CNN with Jake Tapper to combat the swarm of fake news about the virus.
Tapper first tried to argue that the healthcare system was being overrun. “First of all, the AMA [American Medical Association] says there’s still a PPE problem in some hospitals. Second of all, some hospitals, including in Arizona, are actually starting to approach maximum capacity and they’re worried what it’s going to look like in two weeks.”
This is Tapper’s attempt to blame a rise in cases on the economy gradually opening back up, which had been happening for weeks prior to the explosion of the demonstrations and riots.
Azar responded, “With all respect to the AMA, they don’t have the information we have. We literally are on the phone with the hospitals in Arizona, Texas, California, Florida every day, measuring their PPE supplies and their reserves and making sure that we’re there to support them…In Arizona, 15 percent of hospitalizations in-patient are from COVID. The rest of their capacity is consumed with other hospital uses and elective procedures. And you’re going to see governors and hospitals slowing down on elective procedures to make capacity.”
After Azar shot down that attempt at misinformation, Tapper moved on to the topic of Obamacare.
Donald Trump recently asked the Supreme Court to rule on its constitutionality, which prompted Tapper to ask, “Is it not unconscionable, during a pandemic, to take health insurance away from 24 million Americans without having a replacement plan ready to go, so that those 24 million Americans do not have to not have health insurance in the middle of a pandemic?”
Azar again dropped the hammer and fired back, “So, first off, President Trump has done something really historic here for the uninsured, and he’s made sure there’s a program that if you’re uninsured for any reason, you get the COVID care you need with no cost-sharing, no co-payments, no deductibles, no surprise medical bills. So, the American people need to be reassured, get your medical care if you’re uninsured, it will be covered by us.”
CNN attempting to go after Azar over the virus is particularly hilarious because they tried to do the same thing to Trump when he mentioned his doctors had prescribed a drug cocktail that included the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine.
Worse yet, the study ragging on hydroxychloroquine was proven to be junk.
The so-called mainstream media is deeply invested in trying to scare the American people back inside indefinitely, but it just isn’t working.
