Democrats (and media) react to Trump’s Coronavirus response

Democrats (and media) react to Trump’s Coronavirus response

“This is outrageous”

Thursday evening, Trump held a press conference and announced Vice President Pence would head up the administration’s Coronavirus response.


And of course, Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) were critical of Trump’s choice and insist this be worse and that Trump isn’t doing enough.

Really though:

The last thing we need is a panic to spread like Italy is experiencing. I don’t want to think that anyone would be hoping for a larger outbreak that could be exploited for political gain. However, a certain segment of the population can’t see past their own interests and Twitter provides a forum for them to pursue it. But Twitter is not reality and most sane people realize that.

    Twitter is the cesspool of the Internet.

      I actually have a self imposed lifetime ban from twitter so I don’t actually have personal experience but from what I can tell the main use of twitter is to be a platform so that the elite can sway the lowest common denominator.

    Switch the party hats and twitter is banning everyone in sight if this is during St. Obama’s term.

    Never forget the overt partisanship of #learntocode bannings and other twitter moves.

    But that is exactly what all the Demon-rats are wishing to happen.

    Just like they tried their hardest with their corporate media to slam dunk U.S. into a Recession last year.

No matter what Trump says or does it will not be enough for the Dems. Of course, there will be deaths from this virus just like there are from all other forms of virus. This is their new Russian hoax and they will play it as long as they can get anti-Trump results. There was no need for Rosenstein’s sister to come out with her Draconian prediction and it now looks like it was a deep state plan all along. Expect more of this until there is a peak to this wave of virus.

Don’t worry, our elected Democratic representatives and professional press corps in the US will no doubt be careful to only release verified information that will not cause unneeded panic.

And if you believe that…

Given that misanthropy is a basic tenet of Leftism it makes perfect sense they’re hoping for a disaster.

Blogger Althouse had a video of Trump’s 6 pm press conference today. In the relevant part Trump (and or one of the doctor commenter on Althouse) said that a vaccine made by Gilead was useful in treating Coronavirus. The US government had purchased the entire existing stock of the vaccine (4,500 units) and had ordered that another 90,000 doses of the vaccine be manufactured.

Liz Warren can rant and rave all she wants. I know that Liz would prefer that use of the vaccine be limited to pregnant transgender lesbians or some other social justice preferred target.

Or once Trump with his “America First” attitude has sucked up the world supply of this vaccine we should immediately ship the entire stock to say Italy and Iran.

One thing Trump has been exceptionally good at over the years is finding people who know what they’re doing and supporting their efforts to solve problems.

One thing Obama was *terrible* at was the same. He tended to find incompetents that would make him look good by comparison.

First the Dems were angry that Trump shut down flights from central China…and then he was supposed to do it sooner……..
So confusing…

    I find the Socialist-Democrats to operate in a similar fashion to the saying on a thermometer my grandparents had in the house:

    When it’s hot man wants it cold
    When it’s cold man wants it hot
    What it is, he wants it not.

    Maybe the DEMS will be happy if we give them a one-way ticket to Wuhan………..

chuck and nancy just recently cried about being a co-equal branch of government. But along comes a potential crisis and now big daddy Executive branch is the only one with power and the only one who can come up with useful solutions. Even as he came down the escalator, PDJT has had a whole slew of solutions and ideas to protect Americans from a crisis such as this: strong borders, effective agencies such as ICE, Border Patrol, DHS etc. And sensible travail restrictions or outright bans. The democrats have fought tooth and nail against ALL of this, now they want to cry??? G-F-Y democrats, you are truly dangerous, useless and disgusting.

    beat me to this…what happened to their insistence that Trump not be allowed to tie his tie without their approval?

The Democratic Party truly is the party of death.

Dow Industrials are poised to drop more than 300 points at the open today because of a single unconfirmed new case in the US that may have been transmitted domestically.

Are these people insane?

Meanwhile, these are the same people insist that it is not weaponized.

Here is the latest report from a Chinese lab telling us that this new SARS virus has mutated into an HIV-like form which would make it whatm 1000 times more infectious? An Indian lab reported the same thing a month ago because they claimed that it was created synthetically (aka weaponized).

Who are we supposed to believe? China? The US establishment which has turned into a cheering section rooting for this virus to kill us all so long as Trump gets blamed?

Remember all this criticism is simply the result of TDS.

Rob Klain – a democratic political operative with a BA and a JD – who served as the Chief of Staff to VP Biden was the Obama’s point man for Ebola. Ask your friend’s criticizing the Pence pick because he isn’t a doctor if they also criticized that pick?

A doctor is not needed. A civil servant/coordinator should be in charge of coordinating. Doctor’s a scientists will do their thing to treat and, hopefully, cure.

Finally, a most pointedly, just a month ago most of those who are outraged were actively trying to make Pence the President…

    Well said.

    I have worked in Nursing for the past 25 years and one thing I can tell you is that most Doctors are very poor managers, with notable exceptions. Which is why the most successful of them hire good managers to run their practices for them.

I said this in another thread. It doesn’t matter what Trump’s response is. Democrats and nevertrumpers want an economy-crushing issue to wield against him.

They’ve been searching for something to drag the economy down (the only possible way to beat Trump in Nov) and they’ve glummed onto their “selling” of Trump’s COVID-19 response as being too little, too late, too this, too that, etc. And the media is selling it as hard as the dems and nevertrumpers are. People are in place. Whatever can be done is being done, but nooooooo, this is Trump’s huge mistake……before anything bad even has a chance to happen.

Hmmm… By using even the most conservative estimates reported, more people die annually in the US from the Influenza virus than have died worldwide so far from Coronavirus. Did I miss all the moral outrage from the Left?

Oh, right, trust the people who can’t even count votes in the Iowa Caucuses…

I will say this one more time. We know very little about COVID-19, as it applies to the US. We have such a small sampling of cases, in the US, and most were contracted overseas, that we really do not know how contagious it is or how well it responds to existing influenza treatments. And, the Chinese, do not really know either. But, based upon Chinese “data” so far, it does not appear to be much more deadly that Influenza a and b, though it might prove to be more contagious than the current strains of influenza. Reports, from people treating active cases of COVID-19, in the US, seem very optimistic that it responds very well to existing influenza treatments.

So, keep calm. Until we see a real threat from COVID, in the US, then I wouldn’t lose any sleep over it. By the way, y’all do know that the current influenza vaccines are only about 40% effective, right? And influenza kills from 16,000 to 44,000 people annually, in the US, and no one is panicking over the flu.

    Exactly. I am a 25 year Nurse and I work for the largest University Hospital in the State. We have researchers who work with thing like Ebola, so I fully expect we will have this virus at the very least in our Bio Labs.

    I work in Preventative Occupational and Environmental Medicine (POEM), so I will be one of the people taking care of the Medical Professionals who are exposed to the virus. So far we have instituted the following measures.

    1: We have reviewed good infection control techniques.
    2: We have started asking people if they have recently traveled to China.
    3: There is no 3 because that would be an overreaction.

    What is happening is leftist are hoping there will be an outbreak and Panic in the hopes it will give them a chance in November.

Meanwhile Israel’s Health Department is in full-on panic, banning all flights from affected countries (including Italy), and banning all foreigners who have been to those countries from entering. And it has officially advised people to avoid all non-essential air travel. El Al says if people heed this advice it will collapse.

    Sounds like common sense to me… Let’s see… Israel is a small country, surrounded by enemies, that would love nothing more than an airborne virus to infect and incapacitate large numbers of their population. Just because the Israelis are paranoid doesn’t mean that there aren’t little green men from outer space trying to get them.

So far the most dangerous thing about this virus is the Panic that the left is trying to start. Panic can kill more people faster than any disease.

My issue is drug users – as in screw them. I just watched a fried lose two sons. Son 1 early 30s got leg cancer – lost leg – body was so immune to drugs that pain meds didn’t work. Two years of care dealing with spread of cancer and all the other medical side effects. Died…after MILLIONS spent on this worthless piece of shit of the flu. Son 2 – mid 30s…another druggie…came back from rehab while son 1 in hosp…died of overdose first weekend back from rehab. More money flushed. Mother has heart attack…more money. Parents are now broke.
No medical care at all for druggies. No Narcan…nothing.
If the fcking dems want to kill old people over medical care…do the druggies, DUI drivers, illegals, refugees, criminals first.
