I almost fell out of my chair when I read what Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) said on Tuesday’s broadcast of the Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC. Schumer stated that President Trump won’t make the situation in the United States better by criticizing the World Health Organization and all the president’s energy seems to be focused on attacking other people. Schumer said, “He goes after the W.H.O. What good is it? How is it going to make the country better by going after the W.H.O. one day or the press one day or the governors one day or Pelosi one day or me one day? That’s all he seems to–that’s seems to [be] where his energy is. At the same time, we don’t have a regime of testing.” The height of hypocrisy.
Schumer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the news media have been attacking the President relentlessly without offering a single bit of advice on how to resolve this COVID-19 issue. Where are the questions from the news media, even the so-called conservative news media, to the Democratic leadership about what they would do to improve the situation? None. Crickets. The focus of the President’s opposition MUST be that he did not act soon enough to stop the spread of COVID-19 because they have no other reason to blame him. They MUST make that stick in the minds and hearts of all Americans, otherwise they have no grounds to criticize. Angry that the President showed a video chronologically documenting his actions and his oppositions criticisms, they continue to attack the President and offer no solutions.
All criticism and conspiracy theories aside, this President and his administration have been more transparent than any modern administration about what is being done to fight the COVID-19 virus. They have held news conferences every day for weeks—news conferences that the news media does not want to attend and cover because America can see the raw, real-time answers to their increasingly ignorant questions. Why is the news media not asking the Democratic Leadership what they would do differently? Why is the news media not asking the Democratic Leadership why they choose to not work with the President to solve the challenge instead of wasting their time criticizing him while people die?
We are finding out more facts about the spread of this plague. The World Health Organization actually helped the spread of the disease by not wanting to close the borders. The Democratic leadership in America also helped spread the disease by politically opposing the closing of America’s borders. If the President would have acted sooner, the disease would not have spread so much, but what was he doing at the time? He was fighting to stay in office because the Democrats were trying to remove him based on trumped up charges. This blame game is ridiculous. The focus should be on getting people healthy and back to work. Job’s discourse on the wicked ended in Job 21:24 with the question, “How then can you comfort me with vain words, since falsehood remains in your answers?” If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.
