Former pal Piers Morgan blisters Trump for ‘hiding in his bunker’ as America burns

Published

on

British presenter Piers Morgan criticized President Donald Trump for “hiding in his bunker” instead of leading America out of a dark period in its history.

In an op-ed for The Daily Mail, Morgan addressed the police killing of George Floyd and the protests that followed.

“I understand the rage of the protesters,” Morgan wrote. “Yet the one person who could most powerfully effect change is doing the complete opposite.”

The op-ed continued:

President Trump had one job to do after this terrible killing – and that was to heal the raging wounds of fellow Americans.

To speak to them from the Oval Office, with love, and respect and empathy.

To say he understood their anger and would do everything in his power to stop more black people like George Floyd being killed by the very people charged with protecting their lives.

But instead of healing the country, Morgan said that Trump “poured fuel onto the fire.”

“So, here was the President of the United States effectively telling black people protesting at the murder of a black man by a police officer that more black people were now going to be killed by police officers,” he continued. “As he always does, Trump has reacted to justified criticism by repeatedly lashing out at the ‘fake news media’, and unsurprisingly, a large number of journalists have been targeted by police in the past few days – arrested, pepper sprayed and shot at with rubber bullets.”

Morgan called the president “a total disgrace.”

“The world is in crisis from a deadly virus and crying out for strong leadership,” he pointed out. “Normally, this would be led by the United States of America. But America is today in utter chaos, with the worst COVID-19 death toll, 40 million job losses, a devastated economy and now the worst racial equality riots since MLK was assassinated in 1968.”

According to Morgan, Trump’s response was to “self-implode – hurling off his own verbal fire-bombs and then hiding in his bunker as they explode.”

The British personality concluded by comparing Trump to Emperor Nero.

“America, already reeling from coronavirus, is now engulfed with anarchy,” he said. “And the President is shamefully fiddling as it burns.”

CNN host goes off on Trump as COVID-19 surges: ‘The president is peddling debunked illogical crap’

Published

on

During a segment on CNN this Monday, anchor Brianna Keilar had some harsh words for President Trump and his response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, starting out by saying that the U.S. is "losing its battle" against the virus.

"...the people who are supposed to be in charge of the national response to the pandemic instead are escalating their attacks on doctors," she said, pointing out that up to 60,000 Americans are testing positive for the virus, each day.

"They're doing this even though they won't mandate the use of masks which are proven to save lives," she said. "They're doing this because the President is continuing to make claims that the only reason the U.S. has a surge in cases is because of an increase in testing."

Literally hours after providing reporters with a list of what an anonymous White House official called mistakes Dr. Anthony Fauci has made over the year on coronavirus, the White House turned the tables to use the veteran immunologist's words to praise President Donald Trump.

On Sunday in a statement to CNN the White House outlined "the number of times Dr. Fauci has been wrong on things."

Calling it a "new campaign of deception," CNN reported Monday morning that "the White House is trying to destroy the reputation of one of America's most respected public servants, Dr. Anthony Fauci, for telling the truth about how bad things are getting."

FAILURE: Here are 470 ways Trump failed to protect America from COVID-19

Published

Crises have a way of sorting the good presidents from the bad.

Historians consistently rank Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt among the top three presidents for their handling of the Civil War, the Great Depression, and World War II.

By contrast, the string of catastrophes that trailed George W. Bush, from Iraq to Hurricane Katrina to his obliviousness to warning signs in the housing market before the 2008 crash guarantee that he will have a permanent place in the bottom tier of presidents.
