Giving credit where it’s due: #NeverTrumper Mark Cuban praises prez for handling of COVID-19 outbreak

He steps up to defend the president while others want to shut him down and shut him up

(TNS) While there are more than a few #NeverTrump critics who continue to dig at the president for anything and everything, including his administration’s response to the emerging and spreading coronavirus, billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban isn’t one of them.

We don’t know how long this ‘goodwill’ is going to last, but for now, anyway, it’s a welcome respite.

In a recent interview with The Daily Caller, Cuban praised President Trump’s handling of the outbreak at a time when people are lining up to criticize him — even to the point of making outrageous ‘blood on his hands‘ claims.

During the interview with the outlet’s White House correspondent, Maranda Finney, Cuban gave the president credit for his strong grip on the country and the COVID-19 crisis.

“I’m curious how do you think the president is doing when it comes to addressing citizens of America during this COVID-19 pandemic, and what kind of grade would you possibly give him?” Finney asked.

“Look, I’m not gonna throw anybody under the bus,” he began, echoing sentiments he made during last week’s tele-appearance on “The View” — when co-host Sunny Hostin tried to bait him into backhanding the president over his response to the virus.

“I’m not a fan of Donald Trump’s as president, I haven’t been for awhile, but, that said, he’s obviously adjusted and adapted, and he’s doing his best,” the “Shark Tank” co-star said. “We are where we are.”

Cuban added that the president has taken a backseat to let others shine in the fight against the virus, and the positive benefits are obvious.

“In the past, it wasn’t all that long ago when he was saying — people were thinking, wondering how he understood medicine so well. They thought he was just a genius for being able to understand all this stuff, but now he’s kind of evolved to the point where he’s putting his experts up front,” he said.

“There’s a reason why Dr. [Anthony] Fauci became a rock star, and he’s only a rock star because Donald Trump stepped aside,” he noted further, adding that another coronavirus task force expert, Dr. Deborah Birx, is also a “rock star” for educating the public about the risks of COVID-19.

“The head of FEMA, the surgeon general, there’s just people who have really put themselves out there and put themselves at risk, and during the press conferences, he steps aside,” Cuban added.

“He’s not even in-camera shot, and that’s good. And I give him all the credit in the world. Do I like the side comments and all the picking on journalists? No, never have, never will. That’s who he is, but credit earned is credit deserved, and so I’ll give him credit where we’re at right now,” said Cuban.

For the record, we don’t much care for all the preening and posturing of the media, with their self-inflated egos and  “gotcha” questions using cherry-picked words from the president’s statements. But that’s who they are.

In any event, we appreciate Cuban stepping up and giving the president some due because he indeed has earned it with his quick travel bans, decisive decision-making, and insistence on informing Americans daily via his press conferences - that media Leftists want to ban.

Going on that show of sheer idiocy of hosts is a real eye opener for returning to logic and reason.
