The fake news media is pulling every dirty trick in the book to undermine Donald Trump during the Chinese coronavirus outbreak.
But now the President is facing attack from an unexpected source.
And that’s because Fox News just stabbed Trump in the back on the coronavirus. You won’t believe how.
President Trump and his supporters expect the so-called “mainstream” media to gang up on the administration and lie about the federal response to the Chinese coronavirus outbreak.
However, the President and his allies expected a fair shake from Fox News.
That does not appear to be the case.
Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” former Democrat National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile smeared President Trump as a racist for using the term “Chinese virus” in his daily briefings.
“We are faced with a global pandemic that is deadly, and so I believe it calls upon our leaders, national leaders, local leaders to work collectively to speak as often as possible with one voice. I think the reason why many Americans, including myself, are very concerned about labeling it as a Chinese virus is because this is not the time to sow discord and division. We have to provide the kind of leadership that the American people understand, that we stay at home so we cannot just protect ourselves and our families but our communities, that our public health personnel around the front lines leading the equipment and materials in order to do their jobs and to protect their lives. This is a time where you look for leadership, not division, not dividing,” Brazile began.
“I understand the normal response to going to a poll-driven mania,” the former DNC Chairwoman added. “But right now, we want straight answers from our leaders. We want to know how we can protect ourselves and protect our economy as well as our own lives and livelihood.”
President Trump called out Fox News for this political correctness on social media.
“I watch and listen to the Fake News, CNN, MSDNC, ABC, NBC, CBS, some of FOX (desperately & foolishly pleading to be politically correct), the @nytimes, & the @washingtonpost, and all I see is hatred of me at any cost. Don’t they understand that they are destroying themselves?” the President wondered.
President Trump uses the phrase “Chinese virus” because Chinese government officials are pushing a disinformation campaign claiming the United States military developed the coronavirus and unleashed it on the world.
The President wants everyone to know that it is China that bears responsibility for this global catastrophe.
The fake news media – and even some at Fox News – repeated communist Chinese government propaganda that President Trump calling the virus the “Chinese virus” was racist.
China wants to escape culpability for this outbreak to try and salvage their national goal of displacing the United States as the world’s number one superpower.
Unfortunately, Fox News is putting people on the air that are helping China in this effort.
