Donald Trump Questions Whether Joe Biden Knows What ‘Xenophobic’ Means
President Donald Trump joked on Tuesday during a Fox News town hall that former Vice President Joe Biden did not know the meaning of the word “xenophobic.” Trump said that Biden was opposed to his decision to ban travel from China, recalling the former vice president called it “xenophobic.”
“I don’t know if he knows what that means, but that’s okay,” Trump said.
Looks like Biden will be the Dems sacrificial lamb this election. It's strange to see so many with national standing inflicted with reflexive anti-Trumpism. Their smears follow a rather predictable pattern that started with them claiming he was "racist" for wisely restricting travel from China.
THE ‘ORANGE MAN BAD’ DISEASE:
On Jan. 29, Farhad Manjoo published a column in the New York Times with the headline “Beware the Pandemic Panic.” Manjoo downplayed the danger of the virus and instead cautioned,
“What worries me more than the new disease is that fear of a vague and terrifying new illness might spiral into panic, and that it might be used to justify unnecessarily severe limits on movement and on civil liberties, especially of racial and religious minorities around the world.”
Rather than admitting his own errors, Manjoo simply pivoted to blaming Trump:
“Coronavirus Is What You Get When You Ignore Science” was the headline on his March 4 column, in which he asserted that the president had “gutted the United States’ pandemic-response infrastructure.”
This is the “Orange Man Bad” theory of causation, where everything bad is ultimately Trump’s fault, and the proponents of this theory evidently can’t understand why it has cost them their credibility. When journalists insist on interpreting every event from a partisan perspective — “How can we spin this to hurt Trump?” — their errors follow a predictable pattern. Thus, at one point, the danger of coronavirus was Trump’s “xenophobia,” which threatened “racial and religious minorities.” Now, we are told, the problem is that Trump is “anti-science.” Last week, one New York Times columnist blamed “the science denialism of Trump’s ultraconservative religious allies” for the coronavirus pandemic. What matters to liberals is the conclusion, i.e., Trump, is always wrong.
Because they imagine themselves infinitely superior to the rest of us, the journalistic elite think we don’t notice the methods by which they dishonestly manipulate the narrative.
Where is Joe Biden? Is he in a witness protection program in Idaho?
Personally, I think it's racist and xenophobic for people to call the Chinese Virus, the Corona Virus....why are they using a Spanish word? The hispanic people had nothing to do with the start of this outbreak.
I don't think even he knows.
