Posted on 03/14/2020 4:27:33 AM PDT by Kaslin
More people will be glued to their television sets as schools and sporting events are being canceled, along with legions of people now being told to work from home. As such, more potential eyeballs could venture into the twisted realms of MSNBC and CNN who are just thirsting for the Wuhan virus death toll to increase and markets to collapse to better the Democrats’ chances of booting Trump from office in 2020. It’s predictable. It’s grotesque. They’ve earned their new title with gusto: enemies of the people.
If Trump does anything, it’s terrible. He can’t win—and he knows that, so he toys with them. And we mock accordingly because they are an insufferable bunch of self-righteous scumbags that are too blinded to their stupidity. I’m sure you’ve noticed that CNN has the Dow Jones ticker when the market is in freefall, but it magically vanished once a rebound begins. Today, the stock market ended with a nice rally of almost 2,000 points nearly wiping away yesterday’s losses, the worst since Black Monday 1987.
The media threw a tantrum because the markets rebounded upon news that the Trump administration declared a national emergency concerning the Wuhan Virus and outlined an agenda to handle the crisis. Even then, some clowns complained. Like this Jim Roberts guy from The New York Times, who had to quietly delete a tweet that noted the stock market going down as Trump spoke. When the Dow Jones ends 1,900+ points up, you’re going to get a face full of buckshot. Ace of Spades noticed, but also this point he made about Trump established a protocol for future drive-thru tests.
“Serious question about drive-thru testing: What happens if you don’t have a car?” he tweeted. Apparently, not serious enough because he also deleted that one. He then pivoted toward bashing Trump for causing the market to have a good day:
Has this guy been partying with Andrew Gillum and HoneyHammock?
He started celebrating, immediately, that the Dow had a brief small fall. He claimed it was due to Trump's speech -- Without Evidence, as CNN would say.
As the Dow zoomed higher and higher, his grave-dancing tweet appeared premature.
So he just deleted it. He didn't explain why. He just zapped it, and hoped no one noticed.
Well, I did.
After deleting his tweet, he shifted tactics: He now acknowledge the markets were rising, but claimed this was because Trump was passing out various undeserved goodies to corporations
Trump has made this a very pro-business news conference. And the markets seem to approve. pic.twitter.com/mgvSzxe9cY— Jim Roberts (@nycjim) March 13, 2020
Oh, and then there was the Q&A portion of the press conference, which once again showed that the media is just abjectly awful:
BREAKING: Pres. Trump declares national emergency.
— Opens up to $50 billion for states, territories and localities.
— Calls for states to set up emergency centers.
— Calls on hospitals to activate emergency preparedness plans.
— Confers new authorities to HHS secretary. pic.twitter.com/AMLe2eOjWX— ABC News (@ABC) March 13, 2020
This sums up how out of touch the mainstream media is
Markets: Surge to biggest point gain ever
CNN: That was "odd" pic.twitter.com/Pwl6psIWZm— Elizabeth Harrington (@LizRNC) March 13, 2020
Isn't it curious that MSNBC and CNN aren't mentioning that the markets SURGED ??
It surged because of the new measures and the progress against the #WuhanVirus announced during the President's press conference pic.twitter.com/vfhibd2tom— Elizabeth Harrington (@LizRNC) March 13, 2020
The entire press conference now appears to be an attempt to pump up stocks of big american companies right before the close. Astonishing. https://t.co/BPNQ1DviVK— Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) March 13, 2020
Left-wing media turned on a dime from screaming Trump wasn't doing anything to having a meltdown that he's working with the private sector to screen and test to slow the spread of the Wuhan virus.
Their derangment is driven entirely by politics. https://t.co/LXucrdSf8X— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) March 13, 2020
REPORTER: "You disbanded the White House pandemic office. What responsibility do you take for that?"
TRUMP: "Well, I just think it's a nasty question..." pic.twitter.com/mcBJX7Zfdv— Breaking911 (@Breaking911) March 13, 2020
Post-press conference, where a bunch of important news was made, MSNBC is talking about whether Trump has the virus and saying Fauci is ruining his reputation.— Brent Scher (@BrentScher) March 13, 2020
So weird how after being obsessed by the stock market for two days @CNN is suddenly bored by the 2,000 point gain during Trump’s press conference. Maybe @brianstelter can explain it.— David Marcus (@BlueBoxDave) March 13, 2020
MEDIA: How come Trump won't allow drive-thru Wuhan virus testing?
TRUMP: Today we are working towards rolling out drive-thru Wuhan virus testing.
MEDIA: Trump hates people who don't drive.https://t.co/DPj8LpyHt0— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) March 13, 2020
The media hate you, they hate this country and what it stands for, they hate that they failed to rig 2016, failed to make Russian collusion stick, and failed to make impeachment stick, and their last-ditch 2020 play is to destroy the economy.— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) March 13, 2020
Media who spent 3+ years peddling the Russia hoax, doxxing random meme makers, harassing grandmothers, defaming Catholic teenagers, lying about Kavanaugh, and claiming Net Neutrality was Armageddon didn’t magically start telling you the truth last week. https://t.co/tgK1SCY7DN— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) March 13, 2020
The Swine Flu killed 12,000 people and infected around 60 million. Could you imagine the media coverage if a Republican were president? Right now, Wuhan Virus has killed nearly 40 people and infected at least 1,250—and the media is painting an apocalyptic picture with glee. If there is one institution that is preventing a national unity in handling this crisis, it’s the liberal media. As The Federalist’s Sean Davis aptly noted, they hate you. They hate this country. They want it to be punished, they want us to be punished for not believing their fake news for the past four years. Trump is still president, losers. Deal with it. We won.
Hoping for the worst, a trump failure, a recession or collapse, a down market, an economy in the toilet, and now, as many dead Americans as possible, where have you ever heard of such a thing.
yesterday i was in a local Shop Rite super market- its in Bedford, NY, a very liberal town...the anger towards the media was palpable from the people waiting on line- and the lines stretch back and back and back...when i said, its the media that should be cancelled the vast majority nodded their heads in agreement...even the store manager called BS on the media hysteria and says this is purposely being done to harm President Trump...
Where’s this guy been? It’s been my tagline for years...
Seasonal flu killed 35,000 Americans during the 2018-2019 season. (CDC)
C deaths *worldwide* as of yesterday were 4,700 (AP)
Has anyone mentioned that the virus is not heat resistant? It cant survive in warm weather.
That NPR bimbo was worse than 'nasty', she was down right evil.
She once called President Trump a 'white supremacist'
She is really an ugly racist and ugly is more than skin deep with her.
was this is the Rose Garden press event on Friday?
what exactly did she say
She once called President Trump a ‘white supremacist’
She is really an ugly racist and ugly is more than skin deep with her.
“The Swine Flu killed 12,000 people and infected around 60 million. Could you imagine the media coverage if a Republican were president? (0bama was President, then.) Right now, Wuhan Virus has killed nearly 40 people and infected at least 1,250and the media is painting an apocalyptic picture with glee.”
I’ve been comparing and contrasting the coverage of each ‘crisis’ all week long.
The Enemy Media is SCUM!
“That NPR bimbo was worse than ‘nasty’, she was down right evil.”
Yet our tax dollars are paying a portion of her salary. We wanted PDJT to end that funding, but they’re still trying to sabotage him.
Class action civil lawsuits against MSM companies and individuals, by companies and investors, for huge financial losses suffered because MSM companies and individuals incited panic. Same as shouting “Fire!” in a theater.
Crowd fund the lawyers to boost the process. Hit them hard and continuously.
Shut the MSM up by shutting them down.
The press hates the name, Wuhan Virus. Frankly, they are gleeful over the thought of a Woohoo Virus if it takes Trump down.
A list of megacorporation villains:
AT&T = CNN
Comcast = NBC/MSNBC
Disney = ABC
Viacom = CBS
Yes, divest from all MSM holdings.
Stop watching (cable, sa, www) and clicking.
Write to local outlets vehemently complaining about inciting panic and crashing our retirement accounts.
Need massive protests at their HQs, too.
NEVER AGAIN, MSM!
I’m no friend of the media (often referring to it as the “enemedia”), but if you consider what happens if anyone in your home or workplace gets this, you realize we should be on alert. I’ve warned my children to be careful; I don’t want to try working from home for weeks if one of them brings it home.
I think encouraging the general public to prep is a good idea; we learned from hurricanes Katrina and Sandy what happens when you don’t.
The press GAVE IT THAT NAME originally - now we’re “raciss” for using it.
Well, how ‘bout Freepers?
We are plagued with constant unending Freeper magnification of all the hype.
We need to coin a new term for mass jumping of the corona virus shark
Your second sentence is a damned good definition of ‘ghoulish’.
