The MSM has long called President Donald Trump rallies COVID-19 Super-Spreader Events.

To the shock of no one, COVID-19 took a backseat after the media projected Joe Biden’s victory over Trump.

SERIOUSLY? Wish I could say I’m shocked:

CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell: “[W]hile there is disappointment among President Trump’s supporters and Republicans, there is also a sense of euphoria in this country.”

CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King: “Yeah. I called it unbridled exuberance. It’s like, Norah, the country is having a nationwide block party. You can go from city to city to city and for the most part, see people jumping out of their skins…Most people are wearing their masks — some people are not. But people are being very respectful and just very happy and embracing of one another on Times Square, which is huge at this particular. You feel it. The joy is palpable out there.”

O’Donnell: “2020 has been so difficult for so many, not just because of the coronavirus but job losses and others and so, there is a sense for those who support Joe Biden, a sense of jubilation tonight, and that’s why they’re out in the streets.”

Curtis Houck over at NewsBusters, who you should follow on Twitter, found a whole bunch of quotes from supposed neutral journalists. One correspondent had the nerve to compare the Biden parties to Victory Over Japan Day.

John Dickerson insults those who died in WWII:

60 Minutes correspondent John Dickerson: “[B]ut speaking to people today, V.J. Day in Times Square. There’s that famous photograph of the kiss in Times Square. There are people who describe a kind of release and that comes…from something they have felt constricted by over the past few years…But that I’ve never heard in politics, this sense of emotional release on — on an election day or at the end of an election.”

King: “It is very emotional. That’s a really good way to describe it. What you feel when you walk around and talk to the people and look at the people and hear the people, it is extremely emotional for everyone.”

All of these celebrations accurately depict the feeling of all Americans, right? Obviously:

“Well, Norah, obviously, from the moment the news broke today, people flooded the streets here in New York, began celebrating and they’ve been going at it really ever since, as you can see here in Washington Square Park. People have filled this park here. Here, I heard one woman tell another woman, ‘2020 needed this.’ ‘2020 needed this’ is what she said and that might give you a sense of just how so many of these folks feel. We’re seeing signs. We’re seeing shirts that say things like, ‘Dump Trump,’ or ‘Out Now,’ you know, which might be an interesting illustration of something interesting we’re seeing and we’re hearing. A lot of what we’re hearing, the yelling, the chanting, the singing, has just as much to do with the people who are excited about the fact that Donald Trump will no longer be president, as much as the fact, as much as the prospect of a Joe Biden administration. I asked 30 people here over the last hour. 16 told me they were just happy Donald Trump was out. 14 told me it was a combination-of-the-two and two people said they were out here celebrating the fact that Joe Biden was going to be president. Obviously, that is anecdotal. It is a microscopic sampling, and a very, very liberal city, but it gives you an idea of what is animating a lot of excitement here in New York City.”

— CBS correspondent Mola Lenghi, 8:18 p.m. Eastern.

Jake Tapper mentioned that America “had the highest day of infections” as CNN broadcasted all the celebrations. He said people wore masks, “although for some of them they’re slipping off their face.” Tapper noted that people have to socially distance as well.

THANK YOU.

Masks are great, but social distancing and not touching are just as important. So unless you are constantly washing your hands after you touch something or someone you’re still at risk.
