(TNS) Democrats and their medial propagandists keep telling us they’re not politicizing the coronavirus pandemic, and yet they continue to politicize the coronavirus pandemic.
On Thursday, it was Joe Biden’s turn or, rather, one of the bozos who is ‘advising’ him.

Perhaps someone should have told Ronald Klain, the businessman/lawyer who led Barack Obama’s Ebola response, that most Americans believe President Donald Trump’s doing a pretty good job handling the outbreak, but doing so would have been a monumental waste of time because #TrumpDerangementSyndrome is powerful on the Left.
It’s almost like a…pandemic.
After reports that some 3.3. million Americans were forced to file unemployment benefits last week, Klain took to Twitter to put that all on the president’s head.
“If you are not at your job today, it is because Donald Trump did not do his job (to fight #coronavirus) in January and February,” he tweeted.

After seeing a conga line of unhinged Leftists gleefully exploiting the pandemic for cheap Democrat political points, what else are we left to conclude other than unhinged Leftists are happy that this occurred so they could exploit it to hurt the president (except that it isn’t).
There is no other explanation for such factually incorrect and enormously stupid statements.
Nevertheless, you know who is least responsible for the massive numbers of jobless Americans right now?
Donald J. Trump.
Who’s most responsible?
Mostly Democratic mayors and governors who continue to shut down their states over a virus threat that we now know has been grotesquely over-hyped (and intentionally so — to hurt Trump).
In fact, on Thursday, another Democratic governor — Steve Bulluck — issued stay-at-home orders to his residents, guaranteeing that the unemployment numbers nationally and for his state are going to rise.
For 90 cases of virus. Ninety. And of course, we know that the vast majority of COVID-19 cases are mild.
Bulluck is late to the game. Even New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has a real outbreak problem on his hands in New York City, said Thursday shutting down his economy and ordering everyone to remain at home wasn’t the best strategy.
In any event, governors are going to do what they are going to do when it comes to dealing with this outbreak. And if they choose the shut-down route, people are going to lose jobs.
The last one responsible for that is President Trump — who, by the way, is busy working with his task force to develop new guidelines so that states (like Montana, with almost no virus) can let their people get back to earning a living.
