• Dem Party Panic? Trump’s Opposition Goes Berserk Over Newest Charge Against Him …

    Surge Summary: The President’s words to Bob Woodward regarding not wanting to panic the American people regarding coronavirus reflect nothing new. Dr. Fauci stresses he doesn’t believe Trump misled the public about the virus. Yet, Democrats are accusing the President of purposefully lying to the nation. Joe Biden’s party is in a panic because more and more voters are convinced the situation is no longer the threat it once was.

    The media were in a frenzy yesterday over excerpts of Bob Woodward’s latest book in which President Trump stated that he downplayed the threat of the coronavirus because he didn’t want to create panic in the country.  Joe Biden and other Democrats accused the president of deliberately lying to the American people.

    While the media are treating this like a major revelation, it’s not new news.  In MarchCNN’s Jim Acosta criticized the president for downplaying the severity of the virus.  President Trump said, “I want to keep the country calm. I don’t want panic in the country.”

    That’s the exact same thing Trump said to Bob Woodward.  Yet now as we approach the election, Woodward’s rushing out a new book and the media are trying to whip the public into a frenzy over something the president said publicly more than five months ago.

    Meanwhile, there were plenty of Democrats, like Nancy Pelosi and Bill de Blasio, who were downplaying the severity of the virus.  Watch this montage.  And here’s Joe Biden on February 28th telling Americans not to panic.  Did Joe Biden intentionally mislead us too?

    Dr. Anthony Fauci – Saint Fauci to the left – defended President Trump yesterday.  Asked whether he felt Trump had not taken the coronavirus seriously or misled the public, Fauci replied:

    “No, I didn’t.  I didn’t get any sense that he was distorting anything. . . I didn’t see any discrepancies between what he told us and what we told him, and what he came out publicly and said.”

    It’s curious that this latest left-wing smear hit just as new polling shows that Americans are increasingly optimistic about the Covid situation.  For the first time since June, a majority of Americans believe the situation is either getting better or staying the same.

    And maybe that’s why Democrats are panicking now.  The left doesn’t want optimism.  The left doesn’t want an economic recovery.  Senate Democrats blocked another stimulus bill today.  The left wants you to stay panicked, hiding in your home and blaming President Trump.
