The Wuhan virus has plagued the United States for over four months.
The country is rebounding, but the so-called mainstream media is invested in making the panic worse.
Now MSNBC ignored staggering coronavirus details in order to attack one state.
Democrats have fully turned the coronavirus into a political issue.
The party that likes to tout itself as the “party of science”—contending that the planet will end in 12 years without the communist Green New Deal, or that men can give birth—is actively ignoring science related to the coronavirus.
Democrats and their media allies want the coronavirus lockdowns to last indefinitely.
The lockdowns hurt the economy and Trump, so they will jump at any information that furthers that narrative.
This is precisely what MSNBC is doing.
During an interview with the network’s resident hack medical expert Dr. Vin Gupta, co-host Mika Brzezinski teed up with Gupta to take shots at Florida governor Ron DeSantis for his handling of the virus.
Gupta said, “It’s worse than New York. Florida governor Ron DeSantis doing his best impression of Donald Trump in April and May, scolding the media. Over the weekend, Florida hit the highest single day total of known cases in any state since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. There’s also new reporting this morning that testing delays across the country are hobbling efforts to contain the disease.”
This is insane.
New York has had over 32,000 deaths while Florida has had 4,400.
The Democrats are using Florida’s surge in cases as an excuse to hammer DeSantis, but the cases are up significantly because testing is up significantly.
And the death rate in Florida, as well as everywhere else, is plummeting.
Democrats have bent over backwards to attack Republican governors while giving Democrat governors a free press.
It’s blatant and disgusting.
Dr. Gupta also appeared on Brian Williams’s show and was even more hostile toward DeSantis.
Gupta said, “That’s why he’s proceeding over the worst outbreak in the country, one of the worst in the world. He needs to be removed from office, Brian…It’s public health malpractice, and it needs to stop once and for all.”
This is fear-mongering at its worst. Florida reopened its economy over a month ago and saw no spike in cases.
But the Democrats are ignoring the massive protesting, rioting, and looting that is still taking place across the country.
They’re hoping the American people won’t notice, but they do.
People are ready to resume their lives.
The data shows that young people and healthy people have almost no risk of dying from the coronavirus.
But the “party of science” needs you to deny the numbers so you’ll stay holed up in your house forever.
