When COVID-19 came onto the scene, there were many theories being thrown around about where this virus came from.
Did it come from the Wuhan wet market?
Did it come from a bat cave a thousand miles away?
Did it come from a secret government lab?
There were a lot of different people with a lot of different ideas…
But when Trump brought up the fact that the wet market where the virus supposedly originated happened to be just a hop, skip and a jump away from an infectious disease lab that was working with the same strain of bat coronavirus that was now infecting the area…people obviously had some strong opinions.
If you were a Conservative, logic told you that it was totally possible that this lab could be the credible origin point of the global pandemic.
It just made sense.
However, if you were a Liberal, then you thought that blaming the Chinese laboratory was bigoted, racist, and xenophobic. That’s why the Left insisted that there was no way the secretive Chinese government would allow this to happen and then hide it from the world.
And because the Left controls our culture…that’s the narrative the mainstream media ran with.
The Mainstream Media Ran With Liberal Denial
Trump was a racist, xenophobic bigot who wanted to blame China for a virus that was killing thousands around the world simply because he was anti-Asian.
Only now, as the dust begins to settle on the pandemic and the picture becomes more clear, it seems that Trump may have been right…
Medical officials, media members, and even Dr. Fauci himself have begun admitting that the Wuhan lab leak theory isn’t so far-fetched after all.
So, of course, those in the mainstream media who labeled Trump a liar and a bigot have had to figure out a way to backpedal from their previous stances.
All this new evidence coupled with the narrative shift means they’re going to have a LOT of egg on their face – so they’re scrambling to find a way to come out of this looking less like idiots and more like helpless victims.
So, they’ve come up with a tried-and-true method to get themselves out of trouble: They’re blaming Trump.
No, this isn’t being made up.
Journalists are NOW blaming Donald Trump for telling them the TRUTH and making them believe it was a lie.
New York Times White House reporter Maggie Haberman appeared on CNN recently to weigh in on why the Left was so quick to dismiss Trump’s idea that the virus emanated from the Wuhan lab.
Here’s what this twit said …
“Look, I do think that it’s important to remember that part of the issue when this was first being reported on and discussed back a few months after the pandemic had begun, then President Trump and Mike Pompeo, the Secretary of State, both suggested they had seen evidence that this was formed in a lab and they also suggested it was not released on purpose, but they refused to release the evidence showing what it was. So, because of that, that made this instantly political.”
How could saying ANYTHING about the virus be construed as “political”?
Trump wasn’t trying to politicize anything; he was trying to get to the bottom of why this virus was infecting the world while being 100% open and transparent to the American people.
Nothing more and nothing less…
“We Couldn’t Believe Him… Because We Never Believed Him!”
Haberman continued, “I think this was, you know, example 1,000 when the Trump administration learned when you burn your own credibility over and over again, people are not immediately going to believe you, especially in an election year. However, that does not mean it’s not worth discussing.”
She’s blaming Trump for telling the truth, and she says the reason the media IMMEDIATELY entered into a disinformation campaign was because they didn’t believe him on other things, so they couldn’t believe him on this.
If that’s not the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever heard, then I don’t know what is. It’s also a scathing indictment on what’s wrong with the media in the 21st Century.
Today’s journalists lack independent and critical thinking skills.
They simply report what they think will get the most views, clicks, and likes—not the actual news.
Nobody does their research anymore…
Nobody actually hunts for the truth…
They hunt for clickbait.
At least the truth is getting out there and the American people will finally realize that Trump was telling them the truth all along.
While it may be too little, too late, at least it’s vindication…so there’s something to be optimistic about.
It’s not much…
But it’s something.
