Brutal video targeting moms hits Trump for trying to hurt their children by returning to school in pandemic

Published

on

President Donald Trump and Education Sec. Betsy DeVos announced this month that schools must reopen regardless of the dangers of the COVID-19 pandemic. Republican leaders have maintained that not being in school is so detrimental to the development of children that parents must risk their lives and the lives of their families, teachers, principals, and other school administration members.

Author Don Winslow posted a video directed at mothers recalling all of the great moments in a child’s development from their first words to their first steps and their first days of school.

“Now Donald Trump wants you to abandon your most primal and powerful motherly instinct to protect your child,” the video says. “Trump and Betsy DeVos have said children don’t get Coronavirus. Tell that to the families of these children who all died from Coronavirus.”

The video then shows a clip from the CNN interview with DeVos when she was asked whether she can ensure that people won’t get COVID-19 when they go back to school. DeVos refused to answer, saying, instead, that children have to go back to school, no matter what.

Dr. Anthony Fauci has testified that there are guidelines for schools from the Center for Disease Control, but the Trump administration is telling schools to ignore them.

“We don’t want CDC guidance to be the reason why people don’t reopen their schools,” said Vice President Mike Pence during a press conference.

“All it takes is one person,” the video continued. “One person to infect your child. Trump is so desperate to get re-elected that he’s threatening to defund schools for simply trying to protect their students. He wants to sacrifice your child so the country can appear to be open and working. But it’s not working and it’s getting worse. Donald Trump wants you to hurt your own child for his re-election. Are you prepared to do that? This isn’t a choice between Trump and Biden. This is a choice between Trump and your child.”

However, a new report from The New York Times appears to have partially solved this mystery.

Two sources with knowledge of The Federalist's finances tell the Times that packing supply magnate Dick Uihlein is one of the people who gives generously to the publication.

‘Would be comical if it didn’t involve real lives’: Trump interview spotlights deadly failure of His COVID-19 response

Published

"If you wrote this as grotesque farce" for a movie script, wrote actor and progressive activist John Cusack, "no one would believe it."

In an interview with Jonathan Swan of Axios that aired late Monday, President Donald Trump sputtered, declared "You can't do that," and continued trying to downplay the massive and rising coronavirus death toll when confronted with the fact the U.S. has a higher mortality rate by percentage of population than major countries like South Korea and Germany.

2020 Election

Is this Trump’s best shot at stealing the 2020 election?

Published

on

In a time of instability and uncertainty, there's one thing we can count on: Donald Trump will do everything he possibly can to retain power through the forthcoming election and beyond. His motives are well-known: If he loses the election, he'll not only go down in history as a one-term loser, which is anathema to his ridiculously hyperbolic puffery, but it's likely he'll face indictment on myriad criminal charges, while fighting off an avalanche of lawsuits aimed at his criminal negligence.
