There is a political side to the Coronavirus crisis and some people in liberal media believe the Democrats are failing in this regard.
Trump has been front and center, dealing with the crisis every day, and his poll numbers are going up.
Nothing is scarier than that for the left.
HuffPo Reporter: The Democrats’ Response to the Wuhan Coronavirus Outbreak Has Been Disastrous
The liberal media may have temporarily won the battle to trash the stock market with this Wuhan coronavirus outbreak, but the Trump administration’s proactive response to this disease is winning the larger public relations battle. Polls show a majority of Americans now approve of how the president is handling the crisis.
The anti-Trump media cannot fight a two-front war. They’re not smart enough. So, either way—Trump has won—again. And if this outbreak is contained—and God-willing that occurs soon—the economy should recover…
The Democrats are nowhere to be found on this. It’s been Republicans who have been quarterbacking the response on the Hill. HuffPo described their move on this matter as disastrous, as the GOP has taken the leadership role, despite Democrats controlling the House and the money for all this stuff.
This is from the liberal Huffington Post:
Trump does not have a monopoly on political malpractice. As the crisis has spread, Democratic Party leaders ? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden ? have either been missing in action or short on solutions.
Their silence has ? incredibly ? allowed a handful of arch-conservative Republicans to take public credit for advancing the popular, progressive idea of just sending every household a large check for the duration of the crisis.
Pelosi explicitly rejected that very idea in early talks among House Democrats, overruling pleas from Democratic economists.
With Democratic leaders thinking small, a majority of the public now actually approves of Trump’s catastrophic pandemic management, according to a new poll…
And where is Biden? What, exactly, would Pelosi want to see happen?
What does the Democratic Party even stand for?
Trump is handling this crisis well.
And it’s driving the left crazy.
