As the coronavirus pandemic harshly impacts the lives of millions of hardworking Americans, wealthy celebrities have nothing better to offer than snarky, unhinged social media posts attacking President Trump. Most recently, fading actor and predictable anti-Trump activist Alec Baldwin took to Twitter to identify the virus afflicting the United States as Trump himself.
“The virus in the US began in January of 2017. The vaccine arrives in November,” Baldwin tweeted on Tuesday. In a similarly pointless and unhelpful tweet, a month ago Baldwin impotently declared, “The pandemic that threatens the world is Trump.”
Celebs have a big megaphone but, unlike President Trump, not the trust and respect of the American people. A new Gallup poll reveals that 60% of independents support the President’s handling of the coronavirus, and his overall approval rating is 49%. A new Washington Post/ABC News poll shows more Americans trust Trump to handle the pandemic than Democrat nominee frontrunner Joe Biden, who can’t even handle a podcast.
