Skip to comments.Trump Calmly Explains to Accusing Reporter Why He Calls a Virus From China – a Virus From China
Posted on 03/19/2020 7:42:23 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
In a White House briefing on COVID-19 in which the president affirmed he is on a "war footing" against an "invisible enemy" and in which the nation received updates on the government's overwhelming response, one question kept coming up from the White House press corps.
Was it a question whose answer would unlock a flood of relief from the American public now hunkered down in their homes for the next 15 days? Was it about the promising vaccine being test in Seattle? No.
So what was the question?
"Why do you keep calling this a Chinese virus?"
One of the reporters, ABC News's Cecilia Vega, claimed, "There are reports of dozens of incidents of bias against Chinese Americans in this country. Secretary Azar, he does not use this term. He says ethnicity does not cause the virus. Why do you keep using this? A lot of people say it's racist."
Hmmm, I wonder if "a lot of people" is Hillary Clinton:
Trump wasn't buying her premise. He patiently explained, "Because it comes from China. It's not racist at all. No. It comes from China. That's why. It comes from China. China. I want to be accurate."

I would have preferred he addressed why we call an idiot a journalist?
IT, she is the IT, is never going away. She will stay on the edge hoping the Dimocommies “come to their senses” and call for her to save the party from Trump!! Hillary, Hillary, come save us, save us Hillary!!
Because it came from communist CHINA! These reporters are communist liberals and damn fools.
“The president is turning to racist rhetoric to distract from his failures to take the coronavirus seriously early on, make tests widely available, and adequately prepare the country for a period of crisis.
Don’t fall for it. Don’t let your friends and family fall for it. Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) March 18, 2020”
Hey Skunk Cabbage, um, what were the Democrats doing when this first broke out in China? Oh wait, impeaching the president in a partisan move because they are still mad that you lost an election you rigged!
The left keeps providing campaign commercial material for Trump without having to do much research.
I will also would like to point out
This is showing us which reporters/new orgs are on the Chinese payrolls
Fake News, brought to you by Beijing and the letters C C P
Chinese virus....which it is!
Just because it is the truth doesn’t stop the media from attacking their hated enemy President Trump.
Worse will be when all the media proclaim “Insiders say it
is true that American forces brought the Coronavirus to China....”
I wish I had the link to the thread I posted about the Canadian WHO Dr who claimed China Drs were much better than Western Drs and that is why Iran wasnt doing as well.
It was utterly ridiculous. I figured he had just been paid off
But then later some video that people think is him showed up where he was stroking the back of a girl.
So perhaps Commie Blackmail
the reporter asking Trump that question that I saw was kind of hysterical about it...at the time I wonder if she had Chinese connections
POTUS (not so secret) secret to handling the mediots is to condescend to them as one would to an idiot neighbor’s idiot children.
What does it say about these idiot reporters, that in the midst of this crisis, their focus is political correctness?
What does it say about them, that with this crisis and many actions taken by the Trump administration, they question the president not about those actions, but accuse him of bigotry , the implication being that the most important thing here is to accuse Trump of the crime against humanity of violation of political correctness?
The filthy bastards ignore the fact that the NYT called it the Chinese Virus.
In a time of crisis, those who get in the way of the one solving the problem, need to be detained, so they can no longer impede the effort.
The WHO is pretty much owned by the Chinese
They just spread pro CCP propaganda and have been for decades
The WHO should be called the CHO Chinese Health Organization
They are only outraged because the “big, bad orange man” said it. Throughout history, viruses have been named after their originating countries ... Spanish Flu, Russian Flu, Asian Flu, Hong Kong Flu. There’s nothing wrong with calling this the Chinese Virus.
This article from the WHO Doctor was as ridiculous as those found on Xinhua News Agency.
It’s like he didnt even try to appear to be reasonable
I was just going to type in something similar to your post, but you said it much better...
Media is completely worthless...
Cecilia Marcellina Vega should not be recognized or called upon at any Trump administration press event. She has been obstreperous from the start and is clearly a Hillary backer. The most effective and terrifying method of rebuking publicity hounds, or would that be bitches, like Cecilia is to ignore them. They live for controversy.
President Trump and ABC News’s Cecilia Vega have had a few
testy exchanges over the last couple years. Nothing new.
Had to look it up. A synonym "caterwauling" isn't too far off either ... she's looking to get satisfaction and fawning from her journalist pals.
