Some Democrats, too, are insane

President Donald Trump told CBS reporter Weijia Jiang this Monday evening that she should go ask China why the battle over SARS-CoV-2 has turned into a “global competition, after Jiang asked Trump why he continues to claim that the U.S. is performing better than other countries in terms of testing for coronavirus. “Why does that matter?” asked the CBS reporter. “Why is this a global competition when, every day, Americans are still losing their lives?” Trump responded, “They’re losing their lives everywhere in the world. And maybe that’s a question you should ask China. Don’t ask me, ask China that question, okay?” The CBS reporter, who moved here with her parents from mainland China at the age of two -- presumably to escape the communist regime, although that hasn’t been verified – moved quickly into victim mode.

Some are on the frontlines fighting this pandemic as paramedics and healthcare workers (but you’re not, Ted). Some are reporters like [Jiang]. Stop dividing our nation.” Yo, Ted and Weijia Jiang, just for a minute, get off of Trump’s case and jump on China’s @$$. Head over to the Peoples Republic of China (certainly a misnomer considering the people have no rights in mainland China). No, wait, you won’t be granted an interview, and if you were actually living in China and wrote or broadcast a disparaging story about the Chinese government, your collective rears would disappear overnight.
