In the midst of this worldwide crisis, there are still plenty of anti-Trump voices out there who are unwilling to suspend their manufactured outrage in order to promote unity.
We should be coming together as a nation, not being divided by pundits and professional pontificators who seem to believe that a global pandemic is somehow political. These attention seekers are unwaveringly anti-Trump, it seems, and they’ve exploited this crisis is order to make a villain of the Commander in Chief.
For instance, a number of politicians and celebrities alike have insinuated that President Trump’s alleged reluctance to act in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic equates to his culpability in the deaths of those afflicted with the virus.
And, if this weren’t ridiculous enough, some are now claiming that the President is doing too much, and that he is using his response as a stepping stone to becoming a dictator.
Monday on ABC’s “The View,” co-host Meghan McCain said she was fearful President Donald Trump would use the coronavirus pandemic for a “draconian” power grab “akin to the Patriot Act.”
McCain said, “There is an argument being made by some people in media that the press conferences shouldn’t be being covered. My argument for keeping the press conferences is I think we’re at a place where President Trump — he’s always been a sort of totalitarian president in a way that we’ve never historically seen before.”
She continued, “My fear is that he’s going to play on the American public’s fears in a draconian way and possibly do something akin to the Patriot Act going forward where he uses this moment in time to play off our fears for his own benefit.”
If the mainstream media is to be taken seriously, they will need to make up their mind: Is Trump dragging his feet or overdoing it?
