Many in the mainstream media concentrated a bulk of their coverage on President Donald Trump’s Covid-19 diagnosis in a negative light, with a heavy emphasis on shaming the president and his inner circle for their failure to wear a mask at a White House Rose Garden event for Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination ceremony.
As The Hill reported, Dr. Anthony Fauci the nation’s top infectious disease expert, recently revealed that he was “absolutely not” surprised that Trump was diagnosed with COVID-19, even claiming he knew that the Rose Garden ceremony was likely to result in an outbreak.
During a recent interview with CBS’s John LaPook, Fauci said that he was worried about the president’s health while watching Barrett’s ceremony on television.
“I was worried that he was going to get sick when I saw him in a completely precarious situation of crowded, no separation between people, and almost nobody wearing a mask,” Dr. Fauci said on Sunday.
Dr. Fauci — a disease expert revered by and often referred to by the left — doubled down, claiming he was confident that the Rose Garden ceremony would morph into what the mainstream media loves to call a “superspreader event” long before Trump’s diagnosis and the subsequent media frenzy.
“When I saw that on TV, I said, ‘Oh my goodness. Nothing good can come out of that, that’s got to be a problem.’ And then sure enough, it turned out to be a superspreader event,” Dr. Fauci said.
Of course, even though the president was able to make a full and astonishing recovery from his brief bout with what he calls the “Chinese virus,” the left-leaning mainstream media has continued to capitalize on the situation in what many believe is a narrative to make the president’s response to the pandemic look weak, unprepared and dangerous.
With the president and his associates back to full health, it’s probably time for the media to focus on issues that actually matter — like former Vice President Joe Biden’s viability to be the president, given recent revelations of his son’s alleged influence-peddling in multiple foreign countries.
