Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
For the last week, the corrupt news media – egged on by depraved Democrats like Nancy Pelosi – have wailed about the fact that President Donald Trump refused to ignore the advice of his doctors and have himself tested for coronavirus. Dimwitted reporters and talking heads repeatedly slammed the President throughout the week for continuing to shake hands with people and pat them on the back despite not having himself tested for the virus.
Note that the President has had no symptoms at all and that his doctors and the expert team on the Coronavirus Task Force have repeatedly told the media that there was no reason for him to be tested. Given that advice, and given that test kits were in short supply up until the past few days, any responsible person would refrain from insisting on having a test, leaving them instead for those who actually need them.
But the media feeding frenzy over this non-issue only intensified as the week progressed. It peaked after CNN reported that Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro had tested positive for the virus shortly after meeting with President Trump last weekend at Mar-a-Lago. The frenzy did not die down even after that CNN report was shown to be utterly false. So, finally, the President announced at his Friday afternoon press conference that he had consented to be tested now that test kits are in more plentiful supply.
Did that mollify and appease the despicably corrupt reporters? Hell, no. After the President made his announcement, social media and CNN/MSNBC blew up with the predicable new narrative that Trump was being selfish, literally stealing a test kit from some poor American who might actually need it when he had no symptoms that would justify taking the test.
Late Saturday, the White House announced that the President’s test had come back negative:
President Donald Trump tested negative for the coronavirus, the White House physician said Saturday evening after the president held a press briefing on the administration’s latest moves to combat the outbreak.
The president consented to a test Friday night, Navy Cdr. Sean Conley said in a statement, and he remains symptom-free one week after dining with a Brazilian government delegation, some of whose members have tested positive for the illness, at his Mar-a-Lago resort.
The president has been criticized for repeatedly shaking hands in public and on camera despite the advice of public health officials to refrain from the practice.
At the press briefing, he defended his actions but also said that “getting away from shaking hands is a good thing.”
Late Friday, press secretary Stephanie Grisham released a memo from Conley saying Trump had dined at Mar-a-Lago with a person who has since tested positive for coronavirus. Conley did not recommend testing the president as a necessity.
Conley on Saturday said he had been in touch with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the White House Coronavirus Task Force and that his office is “encouraging the implementation of all their best practices.”
Earlier Saturday, Trump hailed the bipartisan deal on a congressional coronavirus funding package on Twitter, adding that he’d attended a series of coronavirus-related meetings in the White House that morning.
He also tweeted: “SOCIAL DISTANCING!”
As of Saturday, the U.S. had reached 50 reported coronavirus-related deaths and over 2,200 confirmed cases.
Despite Trump’s announcement that’s he’s been tested, health officials at Saturday’s press conference urged Americans to begin isolating themselves instead of rushing to get tested if they’re not experiencing symptoms.
So, social media is now filled with angry journalists and leftists who are all triggered that the evil Trump is not sick and about to die. Make no mistake about this: They had pretty much all been actively hoping for that result. Oh yeah, and they’re also squealing about his wearing a “USA” cap to his Saturday press conference. You seriously could never make these people up.
If you cannot see their ghoulish nature by now, if you still cannot grasp the fact that the mainstream news media truly is the Enemy Of The People, then you are well and truly incapable of understanding who these ghouls really are.
That is all.
