If there’s one thing the left — specifically the media — loves, its blood on the ground. It’s the fertilizer through which a myriad of narratives can grow, and in the case of the Coronavirus, the media is, shockingly but unsurprisingly, going out of its way to make the virus a weapon against President Donald Trump.
This isn’t something that Donald Trump Jr. will let them get away with. Hitting the subject on Fox and Friends, Trump Jr. lashed out at the media, pointing out the pattern that has developed over the past four years of using anything and everything they can, no matter how disgusting, as a weapon with which to smite Trump.
“We’ve been watching this play out for four years,” said Trump Jr. “Anything they can use to try to hurt Trump, they will.”
Trump Jr. noted that if Trump does anything positive, then the media won’t give him credit for it.
“But for them to try to take a pandemic and seemingly hope that it comes here and kills millions of people so that they can end Donald Trump’s streak of winning is a new level of sickness,” he continued. “I don’t know if this is Coronavirus or Trump Derangement Syndrome, but these people are infected badly.”
Trump Jr. noted that the same Democrats who are attacking Trump for not doing enough to prevent the spread of the virus are the same ones who said Trump was overreacting when he shut down travel to and from China.
“They can have it both ways because no one in the media will cover themselves honestly,” said Trump Jr.
This from @DonaldJTrumpJr is completely accurate. The Dems first blasted Trump for overreacting to the coronavirus and now are blasting him for not doing enough. The Democrats want a coronavirus outbreak to help them politically. pic.twitter.com/4CV7nAmLL6

As the DOW continues to shrink, you can bet the media will ramp up its attacks as the economy is one of Trump’s strongest selling points for his reelection. This will show that the media is, as Trump Jr. says, hoping that negative things will happen to the country — specifically us — in hopes that they can use it as ammunition against the man we elected into office.
The left is not your friend — they’re not looking out for your best interests, and if you get hurt in the course of events they’ll only see that as leverage against their opponents.
