Stop the fear mongering

Updated 3/20/2020 9:42 AM

"You never let a serious crisis go to waste. It's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." This is a quote by Rahm Emanuel, former Chief of Staff for Barack Obama. The Democrats are following this advice with regards to the coronavirus. That's right, they, along with the DNC media outlets, have politicized this health crisis. Fear mongering is something the Democrats have done for years.

President Trump has acted swiftly in attempts to keep the virus from spreading here, first by stopping all flights from China. Of course, the Democrats criticized that move calling it racist, etc. Then a week later, Trump gets criticized for not doing enough. When it comes to the Democrats, President Trump is always in a lose, lose situation.


The Democrats will stop at nothing to hurt Trump, even if it means hurting the American people. Many on the left have publicly said they are hoping for a recession, thinking that will hurt President Trump in the 2020 election. Russia hoax didn't work, Article 25 didn't work, Impeachment hoax didn't work, so now they're trying to use the coronavirus.

However, Gavin Newsom, progressive governor of California, actually praised Donald Trump and Pence for their help in dealing with the cruise ship situation in California saying, "He said everything that I could have hoped for ... And every single thing he said, they followed through on."

Should there be concern? Absolutely. What the Democrats are doing in regards to the coronavirus, demonizing the president during this time, the scare tactics and fearmongering, is disgraceful and they need to stop.
