GOP Concerned About Virus Spikes In Key States For Trump Reelection

Published

on

Members of the GOP are starting to worry about the current resurgence of coronavirus cases in states that have been deemed to be critical to the reelection efforts of President Donald Trump in November.

The reason for the concern stems from the fact that a lot of the success needed for Trump to have a second term will come from whether or not the U.S. is able to continue opening up the economy after the shutdowns earlier this year without making the current COVID-19 pandemic worse than it already is.

The recent spike in COVID-19 cases has led to some Republican governors aligned with Trump reinstating some, though not all, of the restrictions that were in place during the lockdowns and federal GOP officials expressing more support for wearing facial coverings in public.

Vice President Mike Pence has resumed a busier public schedule for the coronavirus task force, which held its first briefing in two months on Friday to help allay growing concerns. “Our focus today is very much on the advent of a rising series of new cases across the American South,” Pence said, addressing must-win states for the ticket this fall. Pence donned a mask in Texas on Sunday.

Sen. Lamar Alexander, a Tennessee Republican, on Tuesday repeated his call for the president to start doing the same. “The president has plenty of admirers,” he said. “They would follow his lead. It would help end this political debate. The stakes are too high for this political debate … to continue.” On Sunday, Alexander told CNN, “I’m just saying, if wearing masks is important, and all the health experts tell us that it is in containing the disease in 2020, it would help if, from time to time, the president would wear one to help us get rid of this political debate that says if you’re for Trump, you don’t wear a mask, and if you’re against Trump, you do.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke on Monday endorsing the use of face masks stating that “no stigma” should be attached the idea of wearing them.

“Wearing simple face coverings is not about protecting ourselves,” McConnell stated. “It’s about protecting everyone we encounter.”

“The president has said he has no problem with masks, that he encourages people to make whatever decision is best for their safety and to follow what their local jurisdictions say,” said Kayleigh McEnany, the White House press secretary, at a briefing held on Tuesday. “CDC guidelines are still recommended, but not required. And the president is the most tested man in America. It’s his decision whether to wear a mask.”

Look, there’s nothing wrong with individuals choosing to wear a mask. None at all. The problem a lot of Americans have is being mandated to wear them by the government, and the shaming that occurs if you choose not to wear them. That’s uncalled for and totally unnecessary.

Trump has staked a lot of his reelection on the ability of the United States to bounce back from the coronavirus mess and reopening the economy without having massive negative health consequences for those who go back to work.

However, new polling from the Pew Research Center has found that a lot of voters have shifted from supporting and approving of the president’s handling of the situation to disapproving of his efforts.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a top Trump ally, has worked especially hard to defend his state’s coronavirus management, in contrast with Democratic governors of hot spots who have nevertheless been praised by the media, such as Andrew Cuomo. Florida’s official coronavirus death toll was 3,419 on Sunday, compared to 24,835 in Cuomo’s New York. The numbers are even lower for Texas and Arizona.

One thing’s for sure. The left will take this resurgence and transform it into yet another anti-Trump narrative that they then infect people with through the use of mass media. It’s another tool in the toolbox, whether any of it actually has anything to do with Trump or not.

They are constantly looking for material like this that they can use to try and hamstring him with. Whether or not this is successful in the long run will have a lot to do with the president’s attitude toward reopening and how bad this resurgence in the virus actually gets.

WATCH: College Students Not Cheering for Team USA in Olympics Because America is Evil

A recent video of students at the University of South Florida found that many of them aren’t rooting for Team USA.

A recent video of students at the University of South Florida found that many of them aren’t rooting for Team USA at the Olympics simply because they hate America. This is what our schools are teaching our kids to think, folks. From the lowest to the highest grades, our system of miseducation is teaching kids that America is evil and not worth supporting. Some of these woke, anti-American students spoke to Campus Reform ahead of the opening ceremony of the Wokeyo Olympics. And they said they won’t be watching because America isn’t worth rooting for. These privileged, hate-filled leftists said that they aren’t rooting for America: “I’m not going to be rooting for any team just because it’s some country that I live in…because the truth is, patriotism shouldn’t be that strong,” one student said. Another student said, “if you would’ve asked me in the last administration, maybe not.” Students also told Jacobson that they believed athletes should be able to protest during the Olympic Games and that U.S. athletes have no duty to represent the country in a positive light. One student said, “they have a duty to represent their country athletically, but they don’t have any obligation to represent it good or bad.” “I’m not proud to live in a country where I can’t even go down in my own neighborhood [without seeing] people putting up their Blue Lives Matter flags telling me that my life doesn’t matter,” another student said. “Given what’s been going on with this country and how divided our politics have been, there’s not really a reason to stand for one within the country, anyways,” a student exclaimed.

Wokesters Now Say You are a Racist if You Fear Pit Bull Dogs

In today’s episode of “You Stinkin’ Racist,” woke fanatics are now saying you are a racist if you fear the dangerous pit bull dog. The leftist activists at the Animal Farm Foundation recently declared that you are a racist if you fear pit bulls because the pit bull is “the black man’s dog” since it is popular with blacks. The non-profit claims that it is “dedicated to securing equal treatment and opportunity for pit bull dogs and their owners,” and aims to fight against “exclusionary dog breed restrictions in the housing insurance industry.” In other words, the group wants to smooth the way for pit bulls and their owners. The group also relies heavily on a “study” by Harvard Law School’s Ann Linder who wrote a paper titled “The Black Man’s Dog: The Social Context of Breed Specific Legislation.” Linder says that the pit bull has been “gang violence by urban youths, as well as the hip-hop music scene.” However, the pit bull has a bad reputation because it is a dangerous animal. Campus Reform pointed out that pit bulls represent about 6.5% of all dogs in the United States, yet the breed was responsible for 66% of total fatal dog attacks between 2005 and 2017. Oh, but it’s all about racism, you see. You don’t fear pit bulls because the breed is powerful and dangerous. No, you fear pit bulls because you are a racist. The left is never happy unless it is re-fashion reality to its fantasy world. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
