(Tea Party PAC) – The mainstream media has been desperately attempting to use the coronavirus crisis currently unfolding in the United States as a political weapon against the president, which is not a new strategy by any means, given all of the hoopla over the impeachment scandal and the Russia probe before that.
However, there’s something particularly odious about using a national emergency like the coronavirus, which has now killed 4,000 people in America, for political gain.
Many folks in the news media have attempted to paint President Trump up as some sort of raging racist for calling the coronavirus the “Chinese virus,” and for any time he attempts to point the finger at them for the current crisis we are experiencing.
Well, as it turns out, two very important people on his coronavirus task force, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx, have had enough and recently set the record straight about how China really is to blame for the slow response time to the disease due to not reporting all of the necessary information.
Here are the details from BizPacReview:
After National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci revealed that current coronavirus models predict a total of 100,000 to 240,000 Americans will die before the crisis abates, Acosta predictably asked whether the model would have predicted fewer deaths had the government taken mitigation efforts earlier.
Fauci responded by pointing out that mitigation efforts couldn’t have been pursued any earlier because nobody had even been aware of the virus’s impacts precisely because the Communist Party of China had succeeded in hiding these impacts from the world.
Politically correct liberals absolutely hate it when facts reveal a truth that goes against the narrative they are trying to create, which is why they are having a hard time wrapping their heads around the facts presented by Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx. However, like it or not, the truth here is that had China released the proper information as soon as they had it, many of the deaths we have right now probably could have been avoided.
Then, of course, there’s the whole economic collapse happening right now that also could have been avoided too. This is a matter that will directly impact China too, so really, they hurt themselves a lot by not providing this information.
He further admitted that he was hesitant about answering Acosta’s question because he’s aware of how propaganda networks like CNN love to take such answers out of context to boost their #OrangeManBad narrative.
“[I]f there was no virus in the background, there was nothing to mitigate,” he said. “If there was virus there that we didn’t know about, then the answer to your question is probably yes.”
“Now the only trouble with that is that whenever you come out and say something like that, it always becomes almost a sound bite that gets taken out of context.”
Did you notice the slightly veiled shot Fauci took at the liberal media in that last line there? Networks like CNN are notorious for taking sound bites out of larger conversations, stripping them of their context, and plastering them all over the place as a means of helping them craft the anti-Trump narrative they are still trying to push.
Why are they still trying to push this? Because this is still, as of now, an election year, and thus, they want to destroy any possible chances Trump might have of winning come November.
“But they were early. They started early. We were watching South Korea, excuse me, and China and Italy, and we weren’t taking action when those countries were spiking,” he pressed in rebuttal.
“In a perfect world, it would have been nice to know what was going on” in China. We didn’t, but I believe Jim, that we, we acted very, very early in that,” Fauci replied.
In what will probably shock absolutely no one, this conversation has gone largely ignored by the rest of CNN, particulary chief media correspondent Brian Stelter who conveniently left the whole thing out of his daily newsletter. Wouldn’t want to pop the bubble on the narrative, right?
Also absent from his newsletter and other written content from the network is what was said by fellow task force member Dr. Deborah Birx.
Later during Tuesday’s briefing, she reiterated Fauci’s point by noting that China has been hiding internal data about the virus since day one.
“[W]hen you talk about could we have known something different. I think … when you look at the China data originally and you said, oh, well there’s 80 million people or 20 million people in Wuhan and 80 million people in Hubei, and they come up with a number of 50,000 [infected], you start thinking of this more like SARS than you do this kind of global pandemic,” she said.
“I mean, I’ll just be frank … I think the medical community interpreted the Chinese data as that this was serious but smaller than anyone expected because I think probably we were missing a significant amount of the data.”
There you have it, folks. Confirmation from the leading experts in the war against the coronavirus. The blame for the slow response belongs with China. No one else. Let them suffer the consequences for their actions. Let’s hold them responsible and demand they help pay the cost for the damage done to the economy, all of which could have been lessened with proper sharing of information.
It’s the least they can do for causing this mess.
