Trump slapped with a furious backlash after insisting he always treated coronavirus ‘seriously’

Published

on

President Donald Trump was asked about his sober tone during the Monday press briefing and he claimed that he’s always taken the coronavirus as a serious threat.

But it was less than a month ago that Trump was blaming Democrats for allegedly spreading coronavirus hysteria.

The Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus,” Trump said in North Carolina just three weeks ago. “One of my people came up to me and said, ‘Mr. President, they tried to beat you on Russia, Russia, Russia.’ That did not work out too well. They could not do it. They tried the impeachment hoax. … They tried anything. … And this is their new hoax.

His chief of the economic council, Larry Kudlow, called it “relatively contained.”

Senior aide Kellyanne Conway said the coronavirus “is being contained.”

And when speaking at the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Trump said he would “like the numbers being where they are,” before praising himself for being as smart as the scientists.

Today, Trump told the nation he’s always taken it “seriously” and “I’ve always known this is a– real — pandemic.”

‘Turned his back on America’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe and Mika bash Trump for his ‘incredible shrinking act’ as the country burns

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski bashed President Donald Trump's glaring lack of leadership as protests consume the U.S., and presidential historian Jon Meacham said he's acting as if he'd already given up his duties.

The "Morning Joe" co-hosts were astonished that Trump spent the weekend tweeting incendiary comments instead of addressing the protesters' concerns, and they agreed that he had shrunk from the coronavirus and racism crises engulfing the nation.

"It's sort of two things going on," Brezezinski said, "this sort of sowing fear and hate and sowing the violence on Twitter, and, yet, a lot of people felt during the moment at the Rose Garden on Friday, when he chose not to speak about George Floyd and everything that was going on, and he turned around and walked away, turned his back on America, the questions started popping up. Is he afraid to do anything? What is holding him back?"

No incumbent president has ever been in a weaker position than Trump: CNN polling analyst

Published

on

All recent polls suggest that President Donald Trump is losing to presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, and CNN polling analyst Harry Enten argues that Trump's current position is unprecedentedly bad for an incumbent president.

In analyzing a new round of polls on the 2020 presidential race, Enten writes that Biden's lead over Trump has been stronger and steadier than any lead of a challenger over an incumbent president.

"There were more than 40 national public polls taken at least partially in the month of May that asked about the Biden-Trump matchup," he writes. "Biden led in every single one of them. He's the first challenger to be ahead of the incumbent in every May poll since Jimmy Carter did so in 1976."
