Leftwing director Rob Reiner says President Trump “is Murdering Americans.” Pop icon Cher says the president “kills Americans without thought.” We can add actress Bette Midler to the growing list of leftist Hollywood luminaries calling the president a cold-blooded killer.
“#DonaldJTrump is a murderer. Stupid, callous uncaring; all in all the biggest catastrophe to ever befall our poor nation. I can’t stop crying,” Bette Midler posted on Twitter over the weekend. Of course, she included an article from the New York Times which is on a campaign to destroy Trump.
Midler’s screed links to a 4,600-word, five-person byline New York Times hit piece titled “Inside Trump’s Failure: The Rush to Abandon Leadership Role on the Virus.”
The nearly Times article mentions New York Governor Andrew Cuomo once and New Jersey once, even though those two states’ roughly 47,000 COVID-19 deaths account for about a third of the 142,000 coronavirus deaths in the United States.
In New York, according to the New York Post: “DOH figures on Tuesday showed 6,312 nursing-home deaths, slightly more than 25 percent of the state’s total 24,994 coronavirus fatalities.”
Cuomo has been under fire for issuing an order in March requiring all nursing homes to accept residents who tested positive for COVID-19. The move is widely considered the cause of thousands of patient and staff deaths at nursing homes and longterm care fatalities across the state.
In New Jersey, NJ.com reports: “About 43% of New Jersey’s COVID-19 deaths have been either residents or staff members of nursing homes and other long-term care centers. There have been 6,815 confirmed deaths at those facilities.”
The facts just don’t matter to these Trump haters. If you took out the COVID deaths in New York (32,203) and New Jersey (15,715), the number of deaths in the U.S. would be very close to a really bad flu season at around 95,000 deaths nationwide.
To put this in perspective, the most populated state of California reports 7,764 deaths as of this writing. Florida, another heavily populated state which did not take draconian lockdowns, reports 5,071 deaths. The focus should be on New York and New Jersey, and why they put high-risk patients in nursing homes which caused their death toll to skyrocket over all other states.
The mainstream media and their Hollywood puppets want you to believe the COVID crisis is out of control hoping to ensure Trump does not get re-elected.
That’s why Americans gave Midler a rude awakening on social media.
