The American media/Democrat complex is working themselves into a fever trying to blame President Trump for every aspect of the coronavirus response, up to an including (perhaps) the creation of the disease itself. We’re pretty sure at this point that Trump himself could develop the cure to COVID-19 in the basement of the White House, and the Washington Post would find a way to put a negative spin on it.
But outside the glare of the hostile Beltway media, you see a different story. For instance, this week the head of the World Health Organization heaped praise on President Donald Trump’s leadership during the crisis, saying that he was “taking responsibility” for the U.S.’s role in cutting the spread of the illness throughout the country and the globe.
In remarks to the press on Wednesday, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that the United Nations public health agency had asked each major country to implement a “whole of country” approach to battling the coronavirus; Trump, he said, had become a magnificent example of this response.
“That’s exactly what he’s doing, which we appreciate because fighting this pandemic needs political commitment,” Tedros said.
The WHO director told the press in Geneva that he’d recently spoken to Trump, and he is confident that the U.S. president is “doing all he can” to confront the pandemic.
“I believe that kind of political commitment and political leadership can bring change or can stop this pandemic,” Tedros said.
Well, it’s nice to hear someone take a responsible, measured approach to evaluating Trump’s leadership at this time of unprecedented crisis. It’s certainly more than you’ll get from the Washington Post, the New York Times, or any of the major news networks outside of Fox. It hasn’t been exactly surprising to see them with their knives out for blood during this time of national strife, but it has been disheartening. The last hope we had that the Democrats and the media would actually unite in the face of true danger has evaporated like so much smoke.
It is now official: Hating Trump and his supporters is the number one priority of these clowns. Bar none.
