Democrats from everywhere in the halls of D.C. to the media are all touting the same line about President Donald Trump not taking the Wuhan Coronavirus Outbreak serious enough until it was too late.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough is even going so far as to now say that everyone knew about the outbreak since early January except Trump. I addressed Scarborough’s claim in an article earlier today.
The Democrats are clearly trying to rewrite history here. Trump taking the virus seriously was based on reports coming in from China and backed by the World Health Organization. As Deborah Birx, the State Department immunologist advising the White House said at Tuesday’s press conference, the skewed data from China was informing the rest of the world on the nature of the virus.
“The medical community made — interpreted the Chinese data as: This was serious but smaller than anyone expected,” she said at Tuesday’s news conference. “Because I think probably we were missing a significant amount of the data, now that what we see happened to Italy and see what happened to Spain.”
Many people were deceived about what was going on thanks to China hiding the facts, including health experts around the world. This also includes the Democrats who are currently acting as if they knew of the seriousness all along.
I say “acting” because as Tom Elliot shows us in a video posted to Twitter, Democrats weren’t taking the viral outbreak seriously at all in those early days. In fact, they were encouraging people to get out there and mingle in large groups.
Enjoy this supercut of Democrats telling you not to worry about the Coronavirus and attend large gatherings.
