Gallup poll shows media has the highest public disapproval amid coronavirus
The mainstream media can’t seem to let go of its Trump derangement syndrome as it unrelentingly continues to attack the president over his handling of the response to the coronavirus pandemic.
But the latest Gallup polls shows that the highest disapproval in handling the coronavirus pandemic goes to the media, with the majority of Americans disapproving of its coverage.
The latest Gallup survey taken last week asked this question: “Do you approve or disapprove of the way each of the following is handling the response to the coronavirus in the US?”
The media was disapproved by 55% of Americans, and was the only category to have a higher disapproval rating than its approval rating.
Here are the approval/disapproval ratings for the following groups:
- US hospitals: 88% approve/10% disapprove.
- Your child’s school or daycare: 83%/9%.
- Your state government: 82%/17%.
- Your employer: 82%/14%.
- CDC and NIH: 80%/17%.
- Vice President Mike Pence: 61%/32%.
- President Donald Trump: 60%/38%.
- Congress: 59%/37%.
- The media: 44%/55%.
Trump and Graham slap back after Pelosi blames President’s coronavirus efforts, says “people are dying.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is casting blame on President Trump for Americans who are dying from the coronavirus.
“His [Trump’s] denial at the beginning was deadly,” Pelosi said on Sunday, “his delaying of getting equipment … to where it is needed is deadly. As the President fiddles, people are dying. We just have to take every precaution.”
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) slammed Pelosi for what he called the “most shameful, disgusting statement by any politician in modern history.”
“She’s blaming the President of the United States for people dying because of the way he’s led the country,” Graham said during an interview on Sunday. “That’s the most shameful, disgusting statement by any politician in modern history.”
President Trump also slapped back and Pelosi on Monday, calling her a “sick puppy.”
“It’s a sad thing,” Trump said during an interview. “She’s a sick puppy in my opinion. She’s got a lot of problems.”
Trump then turned the tables on Pelosi pointing out her own lack of an early effort towards battling coronavirus.
“I think it’s a disgrace to her country, her family,” Trump continued, referring to Pelosi’s remarks. “What a horrible statement to make.”
“All she did was focus on impeachment,” Trump added later. “She didn’t focus on anything having to do with pandemics. And she lost and she looked like a fool.”
Trump says Cuomo would probably be “better” 2020 choice than Biden
As Biden is constantly criticizing Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, the president decided to clap back at the former Vice President who hopes to replace him in the White House in 2020.
“If Sleepy Joe was president, he wouldn’t even know what’s going on,” Trump clapped back on Monday.
During a phone-in interview, Trump was asked what he thought about reports that some people in the Democratic field are suggesting that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo run for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020.
“If he’s gonna run, that’s fine, I’ve known Andrew for a long time,” Trump replied. “I think he’d be a better candidate than Sleepy Joe.”
“I wouldn’t mind running against Andrew,” the president continued. “I don’t mind running against Joe Biden.”
“I think probably Andrew would be better,” Trump added.
Kennedy Center lays off musicians anyway after Democrats force $25 million to be included in the stimulus bill
Making a concession for the greater good to get the stimulus bill for Americans passed, Republicans reluctantly caved into Democrats unrelated demand that $25 million be allocated towards the Kennedy Center.
Democrats said the Center needed the money to keep paying its workers and performers. Yet, hours after President Trump signed the bill, the Kennedy Center told members of its orchestra they would not be paid until it reopened.
“It’s very disappointing [that] they’re going to get that money and then drop us afterward,” one musician told the Washington Free Beacon. “The Kennedy Center blindsided us.”
