CNN and MSNBC stop covering full Trump COVID briefingPosted by Jimmy Cooper / April 2, 2020
Both CNN and MSNBC did not carry Trump’s full COVID briefing, either editing out Trump’s diversions or cutting early. Pressure is mounting as more and more people criticize Trump’s handling of the COVID crisis. Adam Schiff is calling for an investigation. Even Obama has subtly criticized Trump’s handling of the crisis.
Although Trump’s approval rating is currently the highest its ever been, the show isn’t over yet. His push to “open America for business” by Easter might sabotage his ratings. Regardless of what the American public thinks, international media outlets are savaging Trump for his handling of the COVID pandemic.
The Independent thinks that the United States is going to lose its superpower status forever because of Trump’s bungling. In a meeting of international leaders, the Trump administration tried to convince everyone to call COVID the “Wuhan Virus.” Pick your battles, dude.
The Guardian claims that the initial six weeks of the outbreak were the most important test of the Trump presidency––a test he failed by neglecting to take the virus seriously. The drive-through testing sites he promised are nowhere to be found, further suggesting his approval ratings will plummet––and more importantly the number of deaths will rise.
Almost a million physicians have also called on Trump to abandon his efforts to return American business to normal by Easter. They warn that a premature return to normal will certainly lead to unnecessary death.
