On Twitter on Wednesday, Sen. Kamala Harris claimed President Trump “knowingly betrayed the American people” by his response to the coronavirus following Trump’s explanation to journalist Bob Woodward that he wanted to downplay the threat to avoid a panic.
Wanting to avoid a panic seems like a reasonable response from a Trump’s interview with Woodward quickly resulted in an eruption of “gotcha” outrage among the mainstream media, who have been trying all along to hang the pandemic on Trump. They want to twist his admission to suggest falsely that Trump did nothing to rein in the virus.
“Donald Trump knowingly betrayed the American people. His refusal to act cost 190,000 Americans their lives, and tens of millions their livelihoods. He is unfit to be president. We must vote him out in November,” Kamala tweeted. Her comment echoes empty-suit cypher Joe Biden’s blatantly deceitful tweet: “Donald Trump knew. He lied to us for months. And while a deadly disease ripped through our nation, he failed to do his job — on purpose. It was a life or death betrayal of the American people.”
On purpose”? Does anyone seriously believe that Trump intentionally allowed the coronavirus to spread and kill Americans? Trump Derangement Syndrome is real.
