I’m amazed that Trump manages to keep his cool

(Wednesday blog)

First some important breaking news from the BBC:

Breaking news from John Sopel – BBC North America correspondent

The BBC has just received some urgent breaking news from the Clinton News Network (CNN). An American skydiver, who forgot his parachute, has died from Covid-19. President Donald Trump is clearly to blame for not warning people about the dangers of Covid-19 when skydiving without a parachute:

In an exclusive interview with the BBC’s intrepid and unbiased North America correspondent, (IMHO) Trump-loathing John Sopel, Democrat House speaker Nancy Pelosi demanded “We need to impeach President Trump. This is yet another example of how President Trump’s mismanagement of the Covid-19 crisis is killing innocent Americans”.

OK, the above report is a spoof. But it’s not far from reality. After all, remember a couple of weeks ago when President Trump mentioned an anti-malarial drug, Hydroxochloroquine, as a possible treatment for the Chinese Covid-19 plague? And remember when a US couple noticed that their fish-tank cleaner contained something like Hydroxochloroquine and drank some killing the husband and putting the wife into intensive care? Well this was how the mainstream US Trump-loathing media reported that incident – blame Trump!!!

Yup, in the eyes of the progressive, Trump-loathing mainstream media Trump was guilty of not warning people not to drink fish-tank cleaner.

BBC’s deranged hatred of Trump?

This week the mainstream media excitedly reported that Trump had lost his temper with journalists at the daily news briefing. Here’s the BBC’s John Sopel – the BBC’s North America correspondent – still throwing his toys out of his pram because he (it seems to me) detests Trump and is still pissed that the adorable Hillary Clinton didn’t become president:

About half-way down the BBC website article (link above) there’s a short video titled “Jon Sopel tackles President Trump at Monday’s press briefing”. In my view Sopel’s behaviour is disgraceful. He spits out his questions showing his obvious contempt or even hatred for President Trump and keeps interrupting when the US president tries to answer. Sopel would never have dared to behave like that with Saint Obama.

Given the hostility of journalists like Sopel and, of course, CNN’s (IMHO) repulsive, grandstanding Jim Acosta, I’m amazed that Trump manages to maintain his composure. I’d have gone down and planted a bunch of fives in Sopel’s and Acosta’s smug, know-it-all faces.

But Trump manages to stay fairly cool as supposed ‘journalists’ scream out their supposed ‘questions’ which are really just an avalanche of bile and hatred.

Lefty hypocrite liars?

What must be even more frustrating for Trump is the lying hypocrisy of the mainstream media and lefty progressives. They now all accuse Trump of endangering Americans’ lives by doing too little to late to fight the Chinese Covid-19 plague.

But remember when Trump imposed a ban on flights from China at the end of January? Then the media and Democrats accused him of being a racist and xenophobe. On January 31st, President Trump announced restrictions on travel to and from China in response to Coronavirus. HHS Secretary Alex Azar declared a Public Health Emergency and Joe Biden called it “Hysterical Xenophobia” and “Fear Mongering”.

And when Trump started to propose social distancing, the mainstream media and Democrats accused him of over-reacting. One of Trump’s fiercest critics, Bill De Blasio, Democrat Mayor of New York seems to have forgotten that he (De Blasio) originally claimed that the Chinese plague was not particularly contagious and was “no worse than a common cold”.

After Trump in January declared a “humanitarian and security crisis” during a primetime Oval Office address, Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer said Trump was working to “manufacture a crisis, stoke fear and divert attention from the turmoil in his administration.”

Party leader Tom Perez also called it “manufactured.” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., described it as a “‘crisis’ that doesn’t exist.” Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted at the time that “we’re not falling” for the “fake crisis”.

Here’s a very short video of Pelosi and De Blasio and other Democrat (IMHO) scum accusing Trump of inaction in the face of the Chinese Covid-19 plague. But the video juxtaposes the Democrats’ criticism with their claims at the start of the Chinese plague that Trump was exaggerating and over-reacting..

So, a major reverse ferret from the progressive, no-borders, hug-a-Chinaman Democrats and their slavishly obedient anti-Trump media.

As Private Eye would probably write – “pass the sick bag, Alice”

  • Note that the BBC does not even allow moderated comments on its website. No doubt so as not to allow its propaganda to be challenged. Any biased BBC moderation would be easy to detect – there is no way that it could be unbiased – therefore, it doesn’t allow any comments.

    By the way, how about doing posts on the dangers of 5G?

    The BBC and ITV are making out that the attacks on 5G masts were brought about by a conspiracy theory that 5G Wi-Fi is giving the coronavirus a platform from which to spread.

    Trust the media to use the most incredulous theory when there are plenty of sound reasons why 5G should not be rolled out, all of which are discussed in YouTube videos.

    The media must hold governments to account, but they are not going to do that if they are biased, or if they don’t understand the issue. They ask questions based on an assumed truth and that is entirely unhelpful. Their job is to get the truth from governments. All they are doing as we witnessed in the video of Trump and the female journalist is grandstanding.

    But politicians are no better. It is all about performing to an audience. Thatcher was concerned about how cameras in the Commons would change things, but she used them almost better than anybody. It is interesting to see how Question Time has changed without an audience. It is boring and pointless. The panel no longer talk over each other and there is no effective debate because there is no pressure from the audience. Have I Got News has lost all its spontaneity and is not funny without an audience. All the world is a stage ….. Now we know how true that is.
