Liberals are furious…
During an interview with Laura Ingraham, Attorney General Bill Barr criticized how the media was portraying President Trump and his handling of the coronavirus. Barr focused on the all efforts that the media was putting to try to discredit the usage of hydroxychloroquine.
He stated, “[I]t’s very disappointing because I think the president went out at the beginning of this thing and really was statesmanlike, trying to bring people together, working with all the governors, keeping his patience as he got these snarky gotcha questions from the White House media pool. And the stridency of the partisan attacks on him has gotten higher and higher, and it’s really disappointing to see. And the politicization of decisions like hydroxychloroquine has been amazing to me.”
“Before the president said anything about it, there was fair and balanced coverage of this very promising drug, and the fact that it had such a long track record that the risks were pretty well known. And as soon as he said something positive about it, the media has been on a jihad to discredit the drug. It’s quite strange.”
Barr is right to wonder what changed. It doesn’t make sense that the media would be touting the drug as a cure for coronavirus, but once President Trump says it might be a cure, then they decided to bash him.
