Get ready for the freak-out.

Donald Trump, in what was an especially spirited presser today, announced he will cease funding from the U.S. to the World Health Organization until reforms are made. This comes in the wake of the WHO showing itself to be an apparatchik of China, doing their bidding and lying for them almost every step of the way throughout this pandemic.

And just in case you thought Axios was going to play this straight, get a load of the sub-headline they ran with earlier today on the same subject.

Yes, because China and the WHO are just innocent victims being used to deflect blame. It’s not like they lied to the world and have propagated a disease that will likely end up killing over a million people. Gotta love the media.

Of course, teeth are already beginning to be gnashed over this decision.

Their latest line is that Trump praised the WHO in January, long before we knew the extent of their corruption, so that somehow makes Trump a hypocrite. Yes, that’s actually a line of attack many in the media are currently running with.

The WHO should not receive one more dime from the U.S. until they fully reform. That means expelling China from the organization and firing their current Director-General. We can not continue to be a part of something so corrupt and so obviously compromised. American taxpayers deserve better, even if the left doesn’t think so.
