Fighting the Coronavirus

February 27, 2020

Yesterday, President Trump held a press conference with officials from the CDC on the coronavirus. He sought to calm fears of a pandemic (there are currently 60 known cases in the US), described government efforts to prevent the spread of the disease, and announced that he was appointing Vice President Pence to lead the White House coronavirus task force.

From the reaction from Democrats and the media (again, sorry to repeat myself), you'd have thought Trump had stood at the podium and injected coronavirus into cute biracial children. I’m not even going to quote the tidal wave of hysterical, vitriolic attacks that were launched following the press conference. If you want to feel disgusted by their transparent attempts to exploit this disease to gin up panic, drive down the stock market and score political points, just do a Google News search like I did. I guarantee you that Google will helpfully list all the most rabid anti-Trump stories first.

Instead, I’ll just link to the whole press conference and let you watch it yourself, so when you see these people having a nuclear meltdown over it, you’ll know just how ridiculous they are.

If these Democrats who are accusing Trump of not doing enough to keep foreign diseases out of the US had done anything whatsoever about those issues in the past few years – you know, like not fighting his efforts to secure our borders and bring our industries home from China instead of wasting the people’s time on a doomed-from-the-start partisan impeachment crusade – maybe they’d have a point worth listening to.

For now, I strongly suggest they put on surgical masks. Not to protect them from the coronavirus but just to put some sort of muffle over their mouths and protect the rest of us from their Trump Derangement Syndrome.

On a side note, despite no reported cases in San Francisco as yet, the Mayor has declared a local emergency over the coronavirus. It’s nice to see that San Francisco officials are finally showing some concern over a disease that’s rumored to be spread by contact with human feces, but maybe they should have thought of that before deciding that defecating in the streets and parks is a human right.

    Mike, I received an email with the heading "Team Trump", what you need to know about the coronavirus. Since I thought it was actually from the president, I proceeded to read it. It went on and on and on. This guy stated he was in the National Guard and was from Dayton, Ohio. He has ALL the answers concerning the virus. He says it's much worse than we are being told, that we are going to be quarantined to our homes, guns taken away, and martial law implemented. If we try to leave, we'll be shot. Is this just propaganda?? Please give me your thoughts. Scary.

    Finish building the wall, shut down the borders for a while. Send Pelosi to California to clean up her "mess". I feel for you fellow Californians who are trying to do the right thing. Praying she is voted out of office. What a miracle!!! I can throw in a few other cities too. People are sooo blind. God Save America!

    For the lack of God's Vitamin C people are suffering needlessly. Safe, cheap, and effective.

    As of today, 3/1/2020, there has been only one confirmed death in the U.S. from the coronavirus. On average, year after year, the common Asian Flu and strains kills 69,000 AMERICANS every year. This is the average per year but we heard virtually nothing concerning the 2017-2018 flu season that killed 89,000 here in the United States. This hysteria about the coronavirus is, in my opinion, without basis and historical understanding of the facts.

    Hmmm, 60 confirmed cases of Covid-19 nationwide. I am a little concerned, there was 1 confirmed case here in AZ - at Arizona State University who has now recovered and been taken out of quarantine. I think President Trump is handling the situation just fine! I'm not going to "panic" until there are hundreds of thousands of cases in the U.S. which I don't foresee happening. I will however continue as my husband and I do every winter to protect ourselves i.e. carry antibacterial, wipe down all shopping carts, wash hands frequently. I've even wiped off restaurant tables with the little packets of Purell I carry. The democrats are just trying to panic this country into thinking there is a deadly pandemic coming our way. TRUMP in 2020!

    I'm waiting for this virus to show up in the homeless population in Los Angeles County and in San Francisco. So far 2 people have it in northern California but not in Pelosi's district. It's only a matter of time. When that happens maybe some will wake up and do something about Pelosi. Maybe this virus is the beginning of the end for her-we can only hope and pray-God works in mysterious ways.

    My first concern about the virus was the filth being spread in California by the homeless and druggies on the streets..put there by the Dems and their Queen Pelosi.

    I am not too worried, because I think the influenza is a larger issue. Most of my friends and I are seeing through this new scare tactic. The sky is falling etc.

    Thank you Gov Huckabee for your well worded thoughts.

    Should the virus hit the homeless populations, then there will be a crisis, for it will spread rapidly, and the chances for isolation/quarantine are nil.

    The numbers look big until you put it in perspective. There are nearly 8,000,000,000 in the world. 82,419 have the coronavirus. Of those, 2,808 have died. That is a tiny percentage of the total population. Many other diseases claim more lives than this. The hysteria is stupid. The Democrat policy of no borders allows in a lot more diseases than coronavirus. Of course the Democrats can't let the facts get in the way of their mindless rhetoric.

    They are rejoicing over this virus! Thank God for our great President! This too shall pass.

    I believe if San Francisco has the capacity to go into action protecting the people from the Coronavirus, why in the world don't they go into action as thickly to get rid of the murderers, rapists and child molesters they're harboring in that City.

    I am in TOTAL agreement with you
    Mike! We can’t believe the media, the evil dems or other countries with their lying propaganda...
    GOD is in control!
    May HE richly bless you and the truth you speak!

    I commented yesterday that I thought it was too early to know if the president's response was enough. I have just watched his press conference today after the person in Washington state died. After watching the new conference, I feel much better about the US response. Prior to that all I had heard was democrats/reporters screaming he hadn't done enough. Glad he held the news conference,

    As usual some of the most intelligent comments in current events. Thank you Governor Huckabee.

    I loved your comment about surgical masks - Amen. I guess they will use anything to accuse our President - gee just like they always blame Israel for things.

    Personally I believe we should ban all flights from coming into the US until this virus is fully understood etc. This should be the most level headed approach.
    Then on the second note, we need Bill Barr to start some indictments on the Deep State. This has gone on far too long. I am afraid if we don't start arresting these people, President Trump could lose the election. The Democrats could realy destroy America as we know it.

    Martial Law
    Martial law is the imposition of direct military control of normal civilian functions by a government, especially in response to a temporary emergency such as invasion or major disaster, or in an occupied territory. This will be used by the Democrats to start to take down Mr Trump He Needs to see this ASAP. emergency over the coronavirus.

    I am glad that President Trump took early precautions on this health issue. That he took the responsibility of bringing a sense of calmness to this nation. The nation was sent into panic about the Swine flu under a previous administration. That health issue turned out to be a bunch of hogwash. (Pun very much intended!) What the Dimmies and their media cronies need is a good dose of medicine for their diarrhea of the mouth. Throw in some soap to wash out their mouths, too. That is what needs curing in this country! Glad none of them are related to Pinocchio! The woodchucks would have a mountain of wood to chuck at this point. The Dimmies and their cronies wouldn't know truth if it kissed them in the face. "You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. - John 8:32" They are in a prison bound up by their fear and lies. They want the people of this country to live in that prison with them. Not me! I prefer living by faith accompanied by a lot of mercy and grace.
