US left target Trump with multi-million dollar coronavirus ad campaign, by Anna Massoglia. Here it comes — who was responsible for letting the virus in? Who didn’t close the borders in time? As predicted, it is the US left that is starting this. Eventually the question will be forcibly asked in Australia, too.
For the record, Joanne and I were publicly advocating that Australia close its borders from February 9. The Chinese gave us ample warning. But our whole political class — left, right, media, academia, and bureaucrats — weren’t paying attention. Too complacent and incompetent, IMHO. Look at how much better off we would be if we had closed the borders then. We would have no virus, no domestic economic disruption, and a tourist industry appealing to those from other countries who wanted to escape the virus (after a two-week quarantine, of course).
Anyway, here comes the attack:
Fueled by “dark money,” cash-flush liberal groups with ties to the Democratic Party are mobilizing to unleash millions of dollars worth of ads attacking President Donald Trump’s response to coronavirus ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
Not that the left saw it coming either. They criticized Trump as racist and xenophobic — following the CCP propaganda — when Trump banned Chinese entry in late January. After that, Trump backed off and took his eye off the ball. Nonetheless, the left see this as their big chance.
