‘We are beholden to you’: Fox News coronavirus town hall lavishes bizarre praise on Trump

Published

on

President Donald Trump appeared on a Fox News Coronavirus Town Hall on Tuesday afternoon to proclaim that he wants to open the country back up and have everything going by Easter, or Sunday, April 12. It’s an effort that scientists are warning is only possible if the president wants to increase the number of infections and deaths in the country.

When given an opportunity to ask a question, frequent Fox News contributor Dr. Nicole Saphier, who works as a radiologist at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, heaped praise on the president. She specifically mentioned the travel ban, saying it would have made things worse if he hadn’t barred people coming in from China.

“However, we still have a lag in the testing, which of course, did not have anything to do with you, but my question is for Dr. Birx and the task force, as we still see across the nation that some people are not able to get tests. I have colleagues that still can’t test some of their patients. Is there a plan to fast-track or even parallel track rapid testing so we can mobilize more PPE by doing more testing.”

"Second, the ad relies on numerous past quotes from Biden to demonstrate he’s supposedly been soft on China. But those quotes were mostly boilerplate diplomatic language — and Trump has repeatedly praised China in language very close to what Biden has used ... And third, the Asian man that Biden bowed to turns out to be Gary Locke, a former Washington governor and U.S. ambassador to China, an American."

Trump rambles about ‘genius’ coronavirus during long-winded briefing: ‘The germ has gotten so brilliant’

Published

on

The leader of the free world rambled about his "brilliant enemy" during a coronavirus briefing that lasted over two hours.

Allies of the White House had been quoted in the press urging President Donald Trump to keep his remarks short, but that advice has apparently been ignored.

"When critics (and allies) make suggestions to him and they become public - such as the briefings ought to be shorter - POTUS often prefers to do the opposite. We're well past 90 minutes on this briefing," New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman noted on Twitter as the briefing wore on.
