On Monday, President Donald Trump, rightfully skewered the fake news media, for their egregious coronavirus coverage.

The president also called out their revisionist history in claiming he reacted too slowly to the growing Coronavirus pandemic.

CNN is without a doubt the poster child for the Fake News Media and on Monday they challenged viewers to review their archives to see their supposedly great coverage.

They also claimed that early on they were reporting the lack of Coronavirus response from the Trump administration.

Of course, CNN did this knowing very few people would actually waste hours reading every story.

So we decided to take CNN up on their offer, and what we found, according to CNN’s own reporting, that their claim that President Trump acted too slowly is just another of their egregious fake news lies.

  • CNN stories in January that stated President Trump acted too slow – ZERO
  • CNN Stories in January that stated President Trump wasn’t taking the Coronavirus threat seriously – ZERO

In fact, On January 28th, just three days before President Trump issued his China Travel Ban, for which Democrats and the fake news media labeled him a racist xenophobe for implementing.

CNN wrote:

For Trump’s critics, a global pandemic would strain a chaotic leader and expose the corners of government they claim have been hollowed out during his tenure.
That prediction, so far, hasn’t materialized.

CNN’s Very First Report On The Wuhan Virus January 6, 2020 – A mysterious virus is making China (and the rest of Asia) nervous. It’s not SARS, so what is it?

Chinese health authorities have not been able to identify a mysterious strain of pneumonia that has infected dozens of people and put the rest of Asia on alert — although they have ruled out a return of the deadly severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) virus.

January 8, 2020 – A new virus related to SARS is the culprit in China’s mysterious pneumonia outbreak, scientists say

The new coronavirus in Wuhan appears to not be as lethal as SARS or MERS. Its symptoms are mainly fever, with a number of patients having difficulty breathing. Eight patients had recovered and been discharged from hospital as of Wednesday, and no deaths have been reported, according to CCTV.

January 15,2020 – China’s new SARS-like virus has spread to Japan, but we still know very little about it

On Thursday, Japanese authorities confirmed that a man who had traveled to Wuhan was infected with the virus.

Researchers have yet to rule out the possibility that the virus could be transmitted from person to person, and on Wednesday, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a Watch Level 1 Alert — the lowest of a three-tier travel health notices that warns visitors of Wuhan to “be aware and practice usual precautions.”

The fake news media claims ‘Trump did’t act fast enough’ but in 16 days from this CNN article, President Trump will issue a travel ban on China.

At this point, according to CNN, scientist still didn’t know if Coronavirus could be transmitted from person to person.

So CNN, what was President Trump supposed to do on January 15th…Shut down America?

Jan 17, 2020 – CDC to screen at three US airports for signs of new virus from China

More than 100 staffers from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are being deployed to three US airports to check passengers arriving from Wuhan, China, for fever and other symptoms of a mysterious new virus that’s killed two and infected dozens in China, the CDC announced Friday.

Wait. What? On January 16th CNN reported A second person has died from a new SARS-like virus in China.

After just 2 deaths in China, the CDC was already at airports checking passengers from Wuhan?

How much faster could the Trump administration have acted in addressing the Coronavirus?

January 18th – China’s coronavirus cases likely grossly underestimated, study says

The number of cases in an outbreak of a new strain of coronavirus in China is likely to have been grossly underestimated, according to a new study, which warns that human-to-human transmission of the mysterious virus may be possible.

13-days until President Trump issues his travel ban on China… CNN still reporting human-to-human transmission may be possible.

January 20, 2020 – Vaccine for new Chinese coronavirus in the works

OMG CNN calling it the “Chinese Coronavirus” How Dare You!

The National Institutes of Health is working on a vaccine against the new virus that has infected hundreds and killed four in Asia.

“The NIH is in the process of taking the first steps towards the development of a vaccine,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
Just 11-days from the Trump travel ban. CNN is reporting Dr. Fauci is on the case, after a total of four deaths in Asia.
Most interesting item in this article, CNN’s video report that states the virus originated in a Wuhan market selling wild animals as food.
Of course, CNN would later go on to spew Chinese propaganda saying that there was no evidence that the coronavirus started at this Wuhan meat market.

January 21, 2020 – China confirms new coronavirus can spread between humans

Just 10 days from President Trump issuing a travel ban on China. CNN reports for the first time that Coronavirus can be transmitted between humans.
mysterious respiratory virus that has killed at least three people and sickened more than 200 in China can be transmitted between humans, a Chinese government-appointed expert has said, fueling fears about the possibility of a deadly epidemic as millions prepare to travel for the Lunar New Year holiday.
Guess that 4th person CNN reported on January 20th came back to life?

January 21, 2020 – Dow tumbles on the first case of coronavirus in the United States

New York (CNN Business)  The Dow and broader stock market closed in the red Tuesday as reports of the first case of the Wuhan coronavirus in the United States weighed on the market.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced Tuesday that the first case of the illness in the United States showed up in Washington state. The patient is a male US resident, according to the CDC statement.
CNN video report about the six people who have died, and I’ll quote CNN “from the Wuhan Chinese Coronavirus”

Just 8-days before President Trump enacts the travel ban on China, CNN reports about the lack of transparency from Chinese officials.

Advisers to the CDC say a lack of data from China about the Wuhan coronavirus is curtailing international efforts to quell the outbreak.

While the advisers commended the Chinese researchers for mapping the virus’s genome in just a few weeks, they said there’s a glaring lack of basic epidemiological evidence about who’s getting infected with the virus and how it’s spreading.

The Wuhan coronavirus does not yet constitute a public health emergency of international concern, the World Health Organization announced Thursday.

“Make no mistake. This is an emergency in China, but it has not yet become a global health emergency,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said Thursday. “It may yet become one.”
So wait,  Just 8-days before President Trump enacts the travel ban on China, and the WHO announces Coronavirus isn’t a public health emergency. But President Trump acted to slow?
Speaking on the 10th anniversary of the 2003 SARS crisis, Zhong Nanshan, one of the heroes in China’s fight against that disease, described it as a “turning point” for the nation.
With the Wuhan coronavirus spreading across the country, killing at least 25 people so far, China is now facing a major test of just how much it has changed since 2003.
It’s safe to say China hasn’t learned a thing since SARS

A second case of Wuhan coronavirus in the United States has been identified in Chicago, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday in a press briefing.

The patient is a Chicago resident in her 60s. She is in isolation at a hospital in Chicago, and is in stable condition.
Earlier in the week, the agency also activated its Emergency Operations Center — as it has done with Ebola and vaping-related lung injuries — to centralize the US response to the outbreak.
So with a total of two cases in the United States the CDC activated its Emergency Operations Center. 
But today CNN is claiming that Trump didn’t take the Coronavirus seriously? Seriously!
Three cases of Wuhan coronavirus have been identified in France, the Health Ministry announced Friday. They are the first European cases of the newly discovered virus, officials said.
Just one week before President Trump enacts the travel ban on China, the first case in Europe is documented
The US government is arranging a charter flight to evacuate American diplomats and citizens from the Chinese city that has become ground zero for a new deadly strain of coronavirus, a US official with knowledge of the matter told CNN Saturday.
Despite CNN reporting that there have been only 41 deaths in China, the Trump administration proactively started evacuating Americans out of China.
As the Wuhan coronavirus continues to spread around the world, the World Health Organization’s decision to hold off on declaring the outbreak “a public health emergency of international concern” is baffling.
But when President Trump called out the World Health Organization, CNN Pounced on Trump.
Another case of coronavirus has been confirmed, in Arizona, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Sunday, bringing the total to five cases in the United States.
CNN also reports Dr. Fauci states that a Coronavirus vaccine is in Stage one of testing.
Five days away from President Trump enacting a travel ban on China, the Trump administration which the media is now claiming moved to slow.
  • Is testing passengers at airports
  • Evacuating Americans from China
  • Developing and testing a coronavirus vaccine.

On Tuesday, experts from the German Robert-Koch-Institute said they believed that a man who tested positive for coronavirus in Germany is the first case of human-to-human infection in Europe.
Just three days from President Trump’s travel ban the first ever case of human-to-human infection in Europe is documented.
For Trump’s critics, a global pandemic has long loomed as the ultimate doomsday scenario, one that would strain a chaotic leader and expose the corners of government they claim have been hollowed out during his tenure.
That prediction, so far, hasn’t materialized. But it will likely be tested as health experts prepare for more cases of the coronavirus in the US while Trump remains focused on his impeachment trial and his reelection campaign.
Wait. What? Three days from President Trump’s travel ban and CNN reports that so far all’s good on how the Trump administration is handling the coronavirus?
If, as CNN claims, President Trump reacted too slowly to the Coronavirus wouldn’t this be the perfect story to start reporting it?
Just three days before President Trump shuts down travel to China, CNN reports on the steps needed to be taken.

Although it’s scary to think of a deadly virus spreading, it’s important to remember that the vast majority of cases so far have not been fatal.

What about travel bans? Chinese authorities have shut down transport in and out of Wuhan and at least 10 other cities, effectively quarantining millions of people.

Peter Daszak, president of non-profit EcoHealth Alliance, which researches emerging infectious diseases, hailed the move as “bold,” saying it was not without political risks but might be enough to help stop coronavirus spreading.

It’s a move that’s never been done before at such magnitude — and it has prompted criticism from some experts

January 30, 2020 – Coronavirus shows disease prevention needs to be a policy priority

As cases of coronavirus have begun popping up around the US, some presidential candidates have been silent on this issue — though to their credit, others have called attention to the issue of preventing infectious diseases.

Of course, CNN linked their article to an Elizabeth Warren “Medicare for All,” story.

Hilariously, the CNN story also linked to a Joe Biden op-ed in which Biden claims ‘during the Ebola pandemic, Donald Trump criticized then-President Obama for not enacting a travel ban,’

Joe Biden wrote:

He [Trump] called President Barack Obama a “dope” and “incompetent” and railed against the evidence-based response our administration put in place… in favor of reactionary travel bans that would only have made things worse.

January 30, 2020 – First case of person-to-person transmission of Wuhan virus in the US confirmed

One day before issuing the Travel ban on China.

January 31, 2020 – US government declares the novel coronavirus a public health emergency and suspends entry for foreign nationals who visited China

The novel coronavirus has been declared a public health emergency in the United States, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said in a White House briefing on Friday.

President Donald Trump has signed a proclamation suspending the entry of foreign nationals who have traveled in China in the last two weeks, and could pose a risk of spreading the coronavirus.

February 4, 2020 – WHO says Wuhan coronavirus outbreak is not yet a pandemic

The Wuhan coronavirus outbreak is not a pandemic, World Health Organization officials said Tuesday, adding that they’re hopeful transmission of the virus can be contained.

Many experts believe we’ve not yet reached pandemic levels, due to the current spread of the outbreak but also because we don’t yet know enough about the coronavirus.

So five days AFTER President Trump’s travel ban, CNN is quoting ‘Experts’ saying they’re not sure the Coronavirus is a pandemic. But, CNN claims Trump acted to slow?

February 5th, 2020 Chuck Schumer Tweets that Trump’s travel ban is an overreaction implying that President Trump issued the ban because he’s a supposed xenophobic racist.

Hysterically, when Schumer started spewing his ‘Trump acted to slow’ talking point. HE DELETED THIS TWEET.

Senator Chuck-Schumer Deleted Coronavirus-Trump racist tweet
