Donald Trump Jr. blasted the media on Thursday for acting like we cant open up until COVID is eliminated, when that may never happen.
Self quarantining & shutting down businesses was done to FLATTEN the curve not to eliminate COVID, Don Jr. tweeted. We needed time to prepare for increased hospitalization & obtain PPE.
Many in the media are acting like we cant open up until COVID is eliminated & that may never happen, he added:

These are crucially important points, ones Ive literally been stressing in piece after piece after piece. And it is also just as crucial that high-profile surrogates of the administration, like Don Jr., stress these points.
They must also along with health experts such as Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx continue to stress these points because the media are deliberately setting President Trump up for failure, and setting the country up for another 12 to 18 months of mindless panic.
The media are doing this by deliberately fabricating an impossible standard that will allow the media and Democrats (but I repeat myself) to treat every post-reopening coronavirus infection and death as a cold-blooded murder motivated by self-interest and greed, by Trumps desire to callously reopen the economy at the expense of human life.
The truth, however, is this
As Don Jr. points out, the virus is still out there. Lockdowns and quarantines are not a cure. All were doing is avoiding the wolves surrounding our homes; the wolves

Don Jr. has the most realistic outlook I’ve seen to date.
He’s right and this has gotten lost in the media hysteria.
Actually, it got pushed aside and deliberately ignored.
We all have to Man-Up. All the platitudes and commercials with catch phrases of "Fierce", and "Jersey Strong" and "Stand up to..." and all of the other BS is just that - BS.
Sky UK owned by Comcast/NBC Universal; one wag replies with their own graph showing phony YouGov pollsters with around minus 75; others surprised trust in media isn’t lower:
23 Apr: Sky UK Exlcusive: Coronavirus: Britons still support lockdown despite being sadder and more anxious - poll
In a poll of 1,652 Britons for Sky News conducted by YouGov this week, the public were emphatic that the lockdown should continue.
by Sam Coates
Journalists fare very badly in the poll. Some 24% say they trust TV journalists while 64% say they do not, giving a net score of minus 40.
Meanwhile, 17% say they trust newspaper journalists, while 72% say they do not, giving an overall net score of minus 55.
23 Jan 2020: Press Gazette: Sky and NBC team up for new global news channel under owner Comcast
By Charlotte Tobitt
The move comes almost 18 months after US cable giant Comcast, which has wholly owned NBC Universal since 2013, spent more than £40bn taking over Sky, including its Sky News division...
Don Jr is 100% right. We were told that the lockdown was necessary to that ICUs wouldn’t be overwhelmed by 10s of thousands of patients all arriving at once needing care. They’re trying to move the goalposts now and continue the lockdown as long as new infections trickle in. It’s insane, and theoretically we could be locked down forever. There are no guarantees of a vaccine any time soon.
Media and DemonRats see this as the best opportunity to get rid of Trump.
Not insane, WAR. This was a deliberate, coordinated attack.
All because of and for an election, by our domestic enemies in concert with our foreign enemies.
Yes, by their arguments we would just lock down the economy 4 months every winter for flu season and stay inside.
They will keep moving the goalposts as long as they are allowed to (testing testing, second wave, third wave, blah blah). All they need is some new shiny object to focus on every several days.
If POS Obama was the president, the media would want it open right now.
Flattening the curve =/= flatlining the economy.
And every terrified Karen or Nurse turned activist now is screeching how dare you even talk of opening when people are dying!? How dare you spit in the face of the hero Nurses by going for a hike, protest, or try to enjoy life.
If Obama was POTUS I’m not sure we would have ever closed anything except maybe large sporting events.
Yes, they completely changed the rules.
Yes, that is the new narrative!
Flattening the curve was for our medical front line, and it was a worthy goal that we achieved.
Moving the goal posts is total BS, and their noses needed to be rubbed in it until it gets well into their nostrils.
Take away government paychecks, cancel the election, and make Trump President for 4 more years...and youll see Dems want to end this.
You think he’d have let them shut down the NCAA tournament?
He lives to do those brackets and sniff those jocks
