• COVID-Stricken Trump Active, Biden Hiding: Which Do You Think MSM Prefers?

    Surge Summary: You’d think people would be reassured by the President’s fairly active schedule during his Covid-19 convalescence – but the Leftist media has been pretty critical of him for it. Meanwhile Joe Biden remains largely hidden from the public and they seem to be fine with that. Lockdowns – whether for a Democratic presidential candidate or society in general during pandemic — seem to be Big Media’s preference. That approach is bad for society in many ways, that’s for sure.

    President Trump is not letting COVID-19 slow him down.  As you know, the president was transferred Friday evening to Walter Reed Medical Center.  Saturday evening, the president released a video thanking those who were praying for him and rallying around the country on his behalf.  Here’s some of what he said:

    “I just didn’t want to stay in the White House.  I was given that alternative.  Stay in the White House, lock yourself in, don’t ever leave.  Don’t even go to the Oval Office. Just stay upstairs and enjoy it.  Don’t see people.  Don’t talk to people and just be done with it. And I can’t do that. I had to be out front.

    “This is America. This is the United States. This is the greatest country in the world. This is the most powerful country in the world.  I can’t be locked up in a room upstairs and totally safe. . . I can’t do that.  We have to confront problems. As a leader, you have to confront problems.”

    That’s quite a contrast between “Hidin Biden” and the chattering class that wants to shut the country down again.  Biden has made it clear he wants to shut the country down.

    And the left wants to shut Trump down.  They want the schools shut down.  They want sports shut down.  They want Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearing shut down.

    The instinct of far too many in the media and the popular culture has been to shut America down and leave the world to the tender mercies of Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping.

    And exactly how is everyone else supposed to pay their bills?  Commentators can talk from their home offices.  But factories can’t be run from home.  Police can’t stop crimes from home.  Construction workers can’t build new buildings from home.  This economy isn’t run from home.

    In the wake of 9/11, George W. Bush flew to New York City to rally first responders who were still searching for bodies.  It was possible that the city could have been attacked again.  But Bush refused to hide in a bunker.  America and the world needed to see our president.

    Anyone who thinks the presidency can be managed from their basement should be kept as far away from the Oval Office as possible.

    Meanwhile, President Trump tweeted that he will be discharged from Walter Reed Medical Center [Monday] evening.
