Considering how relentless they are in trying to convince the world that they are “compassionate and generous and try to find the goodness in others,” leftists sure are spewing a whole lot of hate in response to President Trump announcing that he tested positive for the Wuhan coronavirus (covid-19).
Following Trump’s announcement, former Hillary Clinton campaign spokeswoman Zara Rahim cut right to the chase in publicly stating, “I hope he dies.” Former Elizabeth Warren campaign staffer Max Berger said much the same, suggesting that “Trump did this to himself” and “inflicted this same misfortune upon millions of others.”
Documentary filmmaker and notorious has-been Michael Moore joked that his “thought and prayers … are with Covid-19,” implying that he hopes the Wuhan coronavirus (covid-19) will take Trump’s life.
“That poor virus got sucked into his body and is now trapped there,” Moore wrote on Twitter, trying to be funny. “How can it escape? He wants to use it as a prop. ‘See this China Flu? I BEAT IT! Just like I’ll beat Biden! They’re both a hoax!’”
Kathy Griffin, who infamously held up a bloodied Trump head during a publicity stunt following the 2016 election, wrote that she wished for Trump to “get medically treated at one of [his] ICE detention centers,” whatever that is supposed to mean.
“Ok fine. I’ll pray for him and the wife on one condition,” she later added, presumably in response to supporters who called her out for being callous and hateful in response to Trump’s positive test result.
“NOT mild symptoms,” she further wrote, hoping that Trump and Melania “each go on a ventilator, for at least 5 days. That’s my best and final,” she concluded.
Leftists instantly become covid deniers after Trump tests positive
Another common theme among leftists has been open denial that Trump even tested positive for the Wuhan coronavirus (covid-19) at all, the suggestion being that he made it all up to help his poll numbers in anticipation of election day.
MSNBC‘s Joy Reid, for instance, expressed covid denial when she tweeted that because she has “a cellphone full of texts from people who aren’t sure whether to believe Trump actually has covid,” this is somehow proof of “how wrecked Trump’s credibility is at this point.”
“I’m not saying I think Trump is lying,” added MSNBC “Hardball” host Matt Negrin, also expressing covid denial.
“I’m not saying I think he’s not lying. I’m just saying he lies all the time about everything, especially coronavirus, and it probably makes sense to say ‘Trump SAYS HE tested positive’ instead of taking this liar at his word like this,” Negrin added.
Celebrity has-been Mia Farrow likewise suggested that Trump could “be making this up because he’s faced with losing & this is a way of bailing out while saving face.”
One of the only celebrities and media pundits to say anything even remotely positive or “loving” towards the president was Rainn Wilson, who played Dwight on The Office. Wilson tweeted simply:
“I wish the President and the 1st Family the very best and a speedy recovery!”
The fact that Wilson’s tweet was something of an anomaly rather than the norm says a whole lot about the fractured state of America, thanks to the endless Trump hate coming from the media and Hollywood. Had leftists simply accepted Trump’s win and tried to support him over the past four years, maybe, just maybe, things could have been better than this.
“The tremendous outpouring of hatred for Trump that we have witnessed over the past several days makes it clear that there will be no healing for America any time soon,” writes Michael Snyder for End of the American Dream.
