CNN’s Jake Tapper Rips Into Trump, Blaming COVID On Him

Just days after the world learned President Trump contracted COVID-19, CNN wasted no time in blaming his sickness and the entire virus on his administration. Most recently, CNN’s very own Jake Tapper took to the airways to scold our recovering president for not taking the virus more seriously and  “undermining” so-called experts. But is it all really the President’s fault like the Democrats what you to believe?

During an opening rant on CNN, Tapper didn’t hold back as he attacked the President and his followers for COVID. He seemed to believe the whole virus started in some backwoods GOP shed, yet nightly protests continue with no social distancing and CNN praises the left’s efforts to completely destroy the fabric of America.

In his speech, Tapper starts with, “Many Americans are likely feeling both sympathy and anger today, emotions that don’t necessarily mix well. Sympathy for all of those suffering, including President Trump, who remains at Walter Reed Medical Center. But also anger because so much — so much of all this pain could have been avoided.”

Right from the beginning, Tapper uses words like “avoided.” Since COVID hit America, the President has waited patiently for answers. He hasn’t let the hysteria of the virus take ahold of his sound judgment. If he had, the economy would still be shut down, and guess what? CNN would be blaming one of the worst economic crises in history on…President Trump.

Tapper continued with his rehearsed monologue,“So many of us since March have been doing everything we can to preserve the health of not only ourselves and our families, but our communities, our neighbors, you. Social distancing, wearing masks, holding events remotely, weddings have been canceled, jobs lost, children are missing out on in-person education, and their ability to see friends. It’s a real crisis. It’s going to leave scars. 208,000 Americans have died. Thousands of Americans have lost loved ones without being able to properly mourn or even say good-bye. But we’re in the middle of a once in century pandemic. Health experts say this is what we need to do in order to get to the other side.”

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?

Tapper would continue with his speech for several minutes. It can be seen in its entirety below. But what Tapper and the rest of his colleagues at CNN are failing to mention are the nightly protests. Trump has maintained social distancing rules, even holding rallies outside at airport hangers. Yet the reason the world has COVID is because Trump didn’t listen to scientists. That is exactly what Tapper and CNN are trying to sell to the American public.
