Do as I say, not as I do.
Despite the fact that the establishment media called it the “Chinese” or “Wuhan” coronavirus for weeks-on-end, when Trump uses the term, it’s inherently “racist.”
At least, that’s according to actress and left-wing activist Alyssa Milano.
While other entertainers are using their platforms to help those in need, Milano is using her time at home to bash the president.
The team of Fox’s The Resident, for example, donated their medical masks and gear used for the show to local hospitals in Atlanta.
However, Milano is a left-wing activist who won’t let a crisis go to waste.
Instead of joining the fight against the Chinese virus, she is busy hurling insults at the president. See below:
Milano is known as a left-wing activist who is highly vocal in the #MeToo movement.
In fact, she was one of the public faces to protest so radically against the hearings of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
During the hearings, Milano said she believed Dr. Ford without question, despite the fact that there were many apparent irregularities in Ford's testimony.
Breitbart has more on Milano's profane statement towards the president:
Actress Alyssa Milano joined the chorus of mainstream media reporters accusing President Donald Trump of using racist language by repeating the term “Chinese virus,” while ignoring the members of the establishment media who used the terms “Chinese” or “Wuhan” coronavirus.
In a tweet on Wednesday, the Charmed actress and left-wing activist demanded that President Trump stop using the term. She also called the president a “racist piece of shit.” But the Hollywood actress omitted the fact that numerous media outlets have used terms like “Chinese coronavirus” and “Chinese virus” in their own coverage.
Reporters have used recent White House press briefings on the coronavirus to suggest that President Trump’s use of term “Chinese virus” is racist.
But the president has pushed back, saying that the term is accurate because the coronavirus originated in China. “Because it comes from China. It’s not racist at all, no, not at all. It comes from China, that’s why I want to be accurate,” Trump said on Wednesday.
The Chinese government has done many questionable things during the pandemic.
Most recently, they have banned journalists from news agencies such as The New York Times and the Washington Post from entering their country.
They censored doctors who raised the alarm early on about the virus.
And they suddenly appeared to blame the U.S. military for spreading the virus.
This is why President Trump fought back and called it the "Chinese Virus," which many in the media already had.
View the president's response below:
COVID-19 isn't the first worldwide disease to begin and spread from China.
The Asian Flu, SARS, and H7N9 are just some of the diseases that spread from China.
Many in the global medical and scientific community are accusing China of a cover-up.
President Trump wants people to understand that we cannot continue to blindly trust China, which includes our medical supply chain.
According to The Atlantic, China has a history of mishandling outbreaks:
The evidence of China’s deliberate cover-up of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan is a matter of public record. In suppressing information about the virus, doing little to contain it, and allowing it to spread unchecked in the crucial early days and weeks, the regime imperiled not only its own country and its own citizens but also the more than 100 nations now facing their own potentially devastating outbreaks. More perniciously, the Chinese government censored and detained those brave doctors and whistleblowers who attempted to sound the alarm and warn their fellow citizens when they understood the gravity of what was to come.
Some American commentators and Democratic politicians are aghast at Donald Trump and Republicans for referring to the pandemic as the “Wuhan virus” and repeatedly pointing to China as the source of the pandemic. In naming the disease COVID-19, the World Health Organization specifically avoided mentioning Wuhan. Yet in de-emphasizing where the epidemic began (something China has been aggressively pushing for), we run the risk of obscuring Beijing’s role in letting the disease spread beyond its borders.
China has a history of mishandling outbreaks, including SARS in 2002 and 2003. But Chinese leaders’ negligence in December and January—for well over a month after the first outbreak in Wuhan—far surpasses those bungled responses. The end of last year was the time for authorities to act, and, as Nicholas D. Kristof of The New York Times has noted, “act decisively they did—not against the virus, but against whistle-blowers who were trying to call attention to the public health threat.”
This is what allowed the virus to spread across the globe. Because the Chinese Communist Party was pretending that there was little to be concerned about, Wuhan was a porous purveyor of the virus. The government only instituted a lockdown in Wuhan on January 23—seven weeks after the virus first appeared. As events in Italy, the United States, Spain, and France have shown, quite a lot can happen in a week, much less seven. By then, mayor Zhou Xianwang admitted that more than 5 million people had already left Wuhan.
The next time Alyssa Milano takes to Twitter to attack President Trump, perhaps she should learn more about the issues being discussed.
In times of crisis, rich Hollywood elites should use their platforms to help the public, not sow division.
