The New York Times was widely mocked on Thursday over an op-ed column that criticized the White House response to the coronavirus outbreak by declaring that the ailment should be referred to as “Trumpvirus.”
The piece by columnist Gail Collins was headlined, “Let’s Call It Trumpvirus,” and declared that “if you’re feeling awful, you know who to blame.”
“The New York Times is blaming coronavirus on Trump now … when they should be blaming themselves for the outbreak of Trump Derangement Syndrome,” political satirist Tim Young tweeted.
Fourth Watch editor Steve Krakauer captioned the column, “Our media is broken – perhaps irreparably so.”
In the widely lampooned piece, Collins criticized Vice President Mike Pence, who has been assigned to lead the government’s coronavirus response.
“Well, it probably could have been worse. Having a czar does make you feel there’s somebody in charge. At least Trump didn’t come before the cameras and announce solemnly, ‘Today I’m asking every American to cross your fingers,’” Collins wrote.
“Our president had to be going crazy over a problem that involves both declining stock prices and germs. This is the guy, after all, who thinks shaking hands is ‘barbaric,’ who is followed around by aides bearing sanitizer,” Collins wrote.
The Times columnist then mocked Trump for blaming the financial markets on Democrats, misspelling coronavirus in a tweet, telling Americans that things are under control and not being as prepared as his predecessor.
“Barack Obama used to have special epidemic-watching groups just in case this kind of crisis developed,” Collins wrote.
“Chances are, if the president is encouraged to mix the subjects of coronavirus and Mexico walls, he’ll suddenly announce that we need a barrier much bigger and thicker and more expensive, so it can stop the flow of immigrant germs,” Collins wrote to end her column.
Critics mocked the piece on Twitter.
The column was published one day after the Trump campaign filed a libel lawsuit against what it called the “extremely biased” New York Times, saying the paper’s March 27, 2019 op-ed titled “The Real Trump-Russia Quid Pro Quo” amounted to a knowingly false smear intended to “improperly influence the presidential election in November 2020.”
“They did a bad thing,” Trump said at a coronavirus press conference later Wednesday, before apparently promising more litigation. “There will be more coming. There will be more coming.”
Donald J. Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States of America on November 8, 2016 with 46% of the vote.
Over three years into the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, the gaping maw that is America’s Political Division is more cavernous as ever.
While the News Organizations like the failing New York Times who inhabit the never-ending metropolitan areas of the East and Left Coasts and the “Beltway” insist, as “some old Lib” named Phil Donahue did in July of 2017 that,
This is the darkest political moment in American History.
Despite what they choose to think and advocate for, those of us who live in America’s Heartland, between the coasts, continue to support the man whom we elected to the most powerful office in the Free World…because he is not a politician.
Liberals who seem to spend their entire day on Social Media posting fake news stories, pulling “facts” out of their hindquarters such as the erroneous claims that President Trump is a racist, and posting anything and everything that they can, in order to attempt to remove President Trump from office, are probably in diabetic shock from consuming too many Cheetos and donuts in their Mom’s basement, as they attempt to comprehend what I am writing.
Here’s the deal, Snowflakes…
None of these fake news stories, Democrat-heavy polls, photoshopped pictures, “Antifa”, and stupid Occupy Democrat Memes on Facebook are making any difference to average Americans.
The Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, as a result of their own regional bias toward the major metropolitan areas on the East and Left Coasts, which has been obvious to average Americans for the last several decades, continue through their sheer arrogance and hatred for the traditional American Way of Life, to distance themselves from the people whom they continue to claim that they “love”…Average Working Class Americans.
Yet still, they expect us to believe the Fake News which they are desperately trying to distribute in a vain attempt get Trump out of office, and which Liberal Trolls are posting on Social Media ad nauseam, so that they and the rest of the “useful idiots”, in their shared madness, can regain the White House, even though all of their Primary Candidates do not stand a chance against President Donald J. Trump..
Americans do not care what Main Stream Media “journalists” such as those employed by the failing New York Times, like the author of that stupid opinion piece, Gail Collins, think.
To put it mildly and in Marital Terms, which even the Liberal Trolls who inhabit President Trump’s Twitter Account can understand, Average Working Class Americans and the Democratic Party have been divorced from each other for a long time.
The Democrats became the party of the “Upper Crust” and Special Interest Groups, who, as the failing New York times has so clearly and unwittingly illuminated in the last several years, look down their noses at Americans who live here in “Flyover Country”.
The Democrats assumed, after reading their own press clippings, that all Americans wanted in 2016 and somehow, still want, the Progressive/Marxist Political Ideology and style of governance which Barack Hussein Obama practiced during his time as President.
Well, we all know what assuming does, don’t we, Snowflakes?
The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we had suffered under for 8 interminable years on November 8th, 2016.
The Oxford Dictionaries define the word “mandate” as
the authority to carry out a policy or course of action, regarded as given by the electorate to a candidate or party that is victorious in an election.
Guess what, Democratic Elite, George Soros, Barack Hussein Obama, Facebook and Internet Trolls, Hollywood Celebrities, and the rest of you still throwing a National Temper Tantrum like the failing New York Times and the rest of the Main Stream Media?
Trump won! Therefore, he does have a mandate, which includes building a wall on our Southern Border, regardless what your highly inaccurate Democrat sample-heavy polls show. If you polls were accurate, Hillary Clinton would be our nation’s President (shudder).
And, average Americans, the “Deplorables” between the coasts whom Democrats and the MSM “journalists” like The failing New York Times continue to insult and ridicule on a daily basis, still support and appreciate president Donald J. Trump.
Because it is evident by what he has accomplished since he took office that President Donald J. Trump is working hard to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
That is why none of the lightweight Liberal Democratic Presidential Candidates stand a chance this November of unseating him.
Illegitimi non carborundum, Mr. President.
Average Americans have your back.
Until He Comes,
