As much as we need President Donald Trump to remain in office for the good of our country, you have to wonder sometimes why he doesn’t just chuck it all in and say, “F it, I’m done.”
No matter what the man did to mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic, it was wrong in the eyes of Democrats and their lapdog propagandists in the ‘mainstream’ media.
He even managed to move regulatory mountains and get two new COVID vaccines developed and out to the public in record time.
But he didn’t get any credit for that massive feat, either.
Yet now, the same POS media outlets who poo-poo’ed his vaccine push (and said ‘it can’t be done’ citing one fake expert after another) is now piling on the president over the ‘slow’ response in getting the vaccine distributed.
On a Fox News program Thursday, network media guy Howard Kurtz blasted the double standard, correctly noting the media wouldn’t give 'even an ounce of credit for the miraculous speed of vaccine development just months after mocking him and saying, no way, no how could a vaccine be ready by the end of the year.'
I don't think there's any question that the administration failed to meet its own goals in trying to get 20 million Americans vaccinated by today as opposed to 2.5 million. Warp Speed officials say they understand the problem, they're working on it. I don't see any sign that Democratic states have been singled out for unfair treatment.
But my problem with the coverage is…most of the press not giving President Trump, absolutely not giving President Trump even an ounce of credit for the miraculous speed of vaccine development just months after mocking him and saying, no way, no how could a vaccine be ready by the end of the year. Now, as soon as there are distribution problems, it's all about Trump, journalists piling on the president. When, in fairness, the states, at least some of them, share in some of these snafus.
Some 240-odd years after our declaration and founding, the institutions bequeathed to us in defense of our liberties and Constitution — to include a ‘free and fair press’ — no longer function as designed.
The last time we were in this situation, leaders stepped forward and led. That time has come again.
President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve!
He wants zero rates and QE4!
You must prepare for the financial reset
