Fox News Distancing From Trump, Describing WH In ‘Panic’ After Woodward Audio Released

It is very damaging for Donald Trump to have Fox News questioning his handling of the coronavirus, in the wake of the explosive audio tapes released by journalist Bob Woodward. None other than Karl Rove was called into action to defend Trump, after Kayleigh McEnany blatantly lied from the podium that “The president has never lied to the American people” in the face of all evidence to the contrary. Here’s Karl Rove saying, “perfection is not possible” with respect to Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. Who asked for perfection? All that’s under discussion here, and all morning, is the lies that were told.

Another Fox News reporter, White House correspondent John Roberts, chimed in.

This is another crisis-of-the-moment, to be sure. And this revelation is exactly like the Atlantic article. What was said about that, was that it didn’t give us any new information, it just told us what Trump said at the time. This is the same thing. We know Trump lied to us, we know he played down the coronavirus, and we know why: he wanted to protect the stock market and his reelection prospects. All that Woodward’s audio does is tell us what he said at the time.

What is intriguing is that the “fake news” screams haven’t been happening. As you saw with Rove’s pathetic waffling, now the narrative is more like going for Christian forgiveness than denying what took place.

That’s a new political strategy. Maybe we can call it The Rove Theorem or some such. It would go along the lines of: “Nobody’s perfect and even though I’ve done a horrible job in office, you should forgive me and let me go back and try it for another four years and maybe I’ll get it right. Or, maybe I won’t, but vote for me anyhow.” Very persuasive.

Here’s a portion of the breaking story on CNN. What is relevant here is to go to 5:57, where Trump stands up and lies blatantly. Juxtiposed with the audio with Woodward, the same lies that you’ve heard before take on a new context and become even more devastating than they were the first time you heard them.

Rove is a liar and a sub-human who is 1000 times more devious than Trump. I had more than enough of him under Bush and our country does not need the likes of him as he will only dig us further down in the grave of demise,

All Biden needs to do to sew this up is do a 50 state tour; go yo each state, step up the the podium, give the number of Covid-19 deaths in the state, and ask “how many of them died due to Trump’s dishonesty and imcompetence?” Then walk off stage and head to the next stop Game over..
