Where does this $2.2 Trillion in federal
coronavirus aid come from?

The National Public Radio outlet in Seattle, partially funded by federal taxpayers, won’t carry Trump’s coronavirus briefings because of “misinformation.”

This has got to be unprecedented. Did the networks refuse to carry Barack Obama’s real-time, “blame racist America” commentary while Ferguson MO torched its minority businesses? Or when he said if you like your doctor you can keep him? Wish we could have been a TV station manager interrupting the feed of Obama in mid-lecture. We take the microphone to say “That’s just enough out of you, Mr. Know-it-all.” Accompanied by the sound of a stylus zipping across a vinyl record. (One of life’s little regrets.)

Are Doctors Fauci and Brix unreliable? DNN and NSNBC have taken to breaking away, mid-briefing. As if America needs more bloviating from Gloria Borger, pundit. The reason for all of which, the Great Conservative Conspiracy suspects, is that Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic is resonating with America. Unlike Joe Biden’s basement Wayne’s World podcasts.


You want misinformation? How about Rachel Maddow, Don Lemon, Paul Krugman, and Chuck Todd?


On March 12, the ABC News poll showed 43% of Americans approved and 54% disapproved of Trump’s handling of the coronavirus crisis. Those numbers flipped by March 19: 55% approved and 43% not. CBS has 53% approving, 47% not. Gallup has 60% approving.

Ann of Althouse opines:

Trump haters had heard that Trump was a fascist, looking to find a way to dictatorship, but it turns out he hasn’t taken this opportunity to make a big power grab. He’s even getting criticized for not being coercive and overbearing enough, as he works with governors and private companies. Trump’s behavior in this real crisis may be easing fears about imagined things.

WATCHING TV FISH

We have to wait for the children’s candy-flavored fish-tank cleaner, little Missy!

Differently formulated

The nattering nabobs of negativity (if we may quote) seized on some Darwin’s Award candidates who gargled fish tank cleaner, supposedly on the advice of Dr. Trump.

“No one expects the mainstream media to be even-handed anymore. … We get it: You loathe Trump and will put the worst possible spin on everything he says and does until he’s out of office,” Kyle Smith writes in National Review. Smith sets the record straight:

The dead Arizona man didn’t take chloroquine. He took chloroquine phosphate, in a massive dose. Please run the tape for me where Trump said, “Everybody take a spoonful of fish-tank cleaner to save your lives.”

“The difference between the fish-tank cleaning additive that the couple took and the drug used to treat malaria is the way they are formulated,” dryly noted CBS News.

Oh, you don’t say? Because I was going to put rubbing alcohol in my martini tonight. Or is rubbing alcohol ‘differently formulated’ than gin?

Among the mainstream news media complicit in blaming the fish-tank stupidity on Trump: National Public Radio.

The big questionPresident Trump wants to open America for business by Easter, which is 17 days hence on April 12. Too soon? The USA, happily, operates as a federation of states. Governors have as much or more to say about what is open or not on their ground. They’ve even got military muscle, in the National Guard, to back them up.

    If I had a radio or tv station, I wouldn’t carry the Trump-led virus sessions. Here’s how they go,
    Trump comes out to play a doctor on tv and tells a bunch of lies. That is followed by a parade of
    those standing behind who step up to say “I just want to thank President Trump for his historic and
    courageous leadership (or worlds to that effect) Een in the face of a massive pandemic, there can
    be no stopping the fawning and ass kissing by the Trump sx\ychophants. The first order of business involves kissing the orange ass. Who needs to watch that worthless exercise?

      Yeah, like The Donald lied about not being responsible for the critical shortage of N95 masks.

      Wait a minute.

      That wasn’t a lie? It was, in fact, Hopey Changey that was WARNED to replenish the depleted supply and, because he was a toothless moron, he didn’t?

      Anywho, tell us the lies he told; be specific and use examples.

      “Better check your temperature Leo.”

      Forget the temperature, Leo needs to be quarantined for his Acute End Stage Level 13 Trump Derangement Syndrome!

    LEO: Trump “HOPES”… That’s NOT an edict by any means. Don’t we all hope that will happen? I do believe, as President of the country, that he wants to share some comfort. That date in April is a l-o-n-g way away. Meantime, as stats pile up, I am confident that he’d modify the timetable. “Natterin’ nabobs of negativity”? Go away, you’re not needed right now, Leo. Your pettifogging comment is the epitome of the the noun “Pillock”….

      Trump has a lot of “issues” but my old friend Rick Berg (Leo) is convinced that Donald Trump can do no right, whatsoever. He can have Joe Biden if that’s what he wants.
