Prominent liberals have broken ranks with the Democrat party and are openly raving about Trump’s leadership during the coronavirus pandemic.
Heads are spinning after Dana Bash, CNN’s chief political correspondent, lavished high praise on President Trump.
According to Bash, Trump is “the kind of leader that people need” during a crisis like the coronavirus pandemic.
Wow. Is the world really coming to an end?!
When commenting on the President’s coronavirus briefing earlier in the day, Bash said, “This was remarkable from the president of the United States.”
We couldn’t agree more, and we’re glad that more people are beginning to see through the liberal caricatures of Trump!
See Bash’s comments below:
Even though CNN has fallen behind Fox News and MSNBC in the rating, viewers were quick to notice that Dana Bash appeared (even if momentarily) to step off the Democrat plantation.
According to the Western Journal, Bash's comments caused an uproar among liberals:
Heads are spinning after CNN’s coverage of President Donald Trump’s response to the spread of the coronavirus pandemic — and for reasons that are somewhat astounding.
Dana Bash, CNN’s chief political correspondent, was complimentary of Trump after his White House media briefing on Tuesday.
Bash surprised both Democrats and Republicans when she did the unthinkable on Tuesday:
She praised the president for “being the kind of leader that people need” during the country’s coronavirus crisis.
While hot takes and cheap shots are common from CNN’s coverage of anything relating to Trump, Bash went off the reservation, and some people don’t seem to know what to make of it.
During a discussion about Trump’s media briefing earlier in the day, Bash lauded the president for his leadership.
“This was remarkable from the president of the United States. This is a nonpartisan — this is an important thing to note, and to applaud from an American standpoint — from a human standpoint,” Bash said.
“He is being the kind of leader that people need, at least in tone, today, and yesterday, in a tone that people need and want and yearn for in times of crisis and uncertainty,” she continued.
“It is so important to hear him strike that tone of calm, and of understanding of how incredibly dire this is,” Bash added.
Bash further praised Trump for his specific answers on the logistical issues of moving important medical equipment and other goods around the country by involving the private sector.
Of course, hardcore liberals who watch CNN weren't happy with Bash's geniune observations.
They took to Twitter immediately to air their frustrations:
Dana Bash isn't the only prominent liberal figure to praise President Trump.
Believe it or not... Ilhan Omar is singing the president's praises.
In response to Trump's economic stimulus, Omar tweeted: "Politics aside, this is incredible and the right response in this critical time."
In a follow-up tweet, she added, "Finally, we should never let politics get in the way of good policy."
The New York Post reports on the praise received from one of Trump's most frequent critics:
Rep. Ilhan Omar commended President Trump for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic in an unexpected moment of rare praise.
“Politics aside, this is incredible and the right response in this critical time,” Omar (D-Minn.) tweeted Wednesday evening alongside a hand-clapping emoji.
The frequent Trump critic and member of “The Squad” was responding to a tweet about the commander in chief’s recent actions to combat the coronavirus, including, as the quote read, “suspending mortgage foreclosures, demanding cash payments to Americans, now invoking the Defense Production Act to force private firms to produce needed supplies.”
Omar went on to praise Trump, who has feuded with Omar on multiple occasions, by referencing words of wisdom from fellow “Squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley.
“@AyannaPressley always says, unprecedented times require unprecedented leadership and we are seeing that in our country right now,” Omar wrote in a second tweet, “I have faith that we will survive this as a nation and build together.”
The Minnesota Democrat’s final tweet on the matter focused on unity in the face of politics.
Trump is currently seeking cash payments to be made to American taxpayers who may be financially struggling during the coronavirus.
He has taken swift and decisive action on multiple fronts to fight against the pandemic.
