Truth is treason in the age of corona.
Leftists are more concerned with stoking the flames of fear and hysteria than the truth.
Now Democrats and their pals in the Fake News Media are scrambling after Mike Pence dropped this truth bomb.
President Trump’s appearances at the Coronavirus Task Force briefings may generate most of the headlines.
But Vice President Mike Pence is a critical figure at this time, more than any other period of the Trump administration.
He’s using his time in the spotlight to debunk the Fake News Media’s lies and distortions about the coronavirus with straight facts.
And during a recent briefing, Pence brought up some inconvenient truths that shattered the Left’s anti-Trump narrative about the coronavirus.
In an effort to paint the Trump administration’s response as incompetent, the Fake News Media regularly claims the United States has more cases than European countries.
But the truth is, they’re simply repeating raw numbers, not accounting for the population differences between those countries and America.
Pence pointed that out, arguing America is doing far better than many European countries in their handling of the coronavirus.
“When you look at the European Union as a whole, they have nearly three times the mortality rate that the United States of America has today, and that is a tribute to our extraordinary healthcare workers, their dedication, their tireless work,” Pence said. “But it is also a tribute to the fact that the American people put into practice the mitigation efforts that the president counseled the nation to do on the advice of our best scientists now more than a month ago. And our hospitals were not overwhelmed and are not overwhelmed at this hour.”
Pence argued it was the Trump administration’s swift actions – cutting off travel from China, quarantining cruise ship passengers, etc. – that made the difference.
“Despite the heartbreaking loss of more than 22,000 Americans, when you look at the fact of what the health experts told us this could be, I think I only can feel a sense of gratitude to the American people, gratitude to the extraordinary team that has counseled this president, the steps that President [Donald] Trump has taken, the policies that governors have implemented all across America.”
President Trump placed travel restrictions in both China and Europe before it was politically popular to do so.
Democrats and the Fake News Media were actually casting Trump’s decision as “xenophobic” and just another sign that Trump was “racist.”
