Democrats couldn’t believe their ears.
With one statement, the Left’s plan to exploit the coronavirus for political gain in November was undermined like never before.
And this Democrat Governor left jaws on the floor with what he told Fox News.
From Day One of the coronavirus pandemic, Democrats and the Fake News media have been singing out of the same songbook.
Message control is one area Democrats traditionally excel at over Republicans.
Together, they crafted and amplified a message that President Trump’s administration was caught flat-footed on the pandemic and needlessly allowed tens of thousands of Americans to die through incompetence.
But their narrative began unwinding on Sunday when New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy told Fox News Sunday that President Trump and his administration were there every step of the way to give the state what it needed.
“Let there be no doubt about it,” Murphy stated. “The president knows New Jersey. He and his team have been extremely responsive in our hour of need, whether it was ventilators, as you rightfully point out, we’ve got a huge amount of supplies to test. We’re getting personal protective equipment just the other day, confirmed direct to our nursing homes. We just announced $1.7 billion into our hospital systems.”
Murphy had just met with the President prior to the interview and secured 750,000 cotton swabs and other supplies to allow New Jersey to double its coronavirus testing capacity.
Additionally, President Trump sent New Jersey millions of pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) and built field medical facilities to keep hospitals from being overwhelmed.
“Listen, I think we’ve been able to find common ground again based on the science, based on the facts and the reality and in our hour of need,” Murphy added. “I have to thank the president and his team. They have been there for us. And I appreciate that enormously.”
Joe Biden and the Democrat elites were hoping to use the coronavirus pandemic and the economic destruction it wrought to win in November.
But if that’s still their plan, they’ll have to contend with Governors from their own party praising President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
