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’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.
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.
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?
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?
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.

January 21, 2020 – Gupta: Here’s what’s keeping health officials up at night
Advisers to the CDC say a lack of data from China about the Wuhan coronavirus is curtailing international efforts to quell the outbreak.
The Wuhan coronavirus does not yet constitute a public health emergency of international concern, the World Health Organization announced Thursday.
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.
January 25, 2020 – The World Health Organization should sound the alarm on Wuhan coronavirus
- Is testing passengers at airports
- Evacuating Americans from China
- Developing and testing a coronavirus vaccine.
January 28, 2020 – Coronavirus will test the Trump administration’s ability to handle a crisis
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.
Tremendous pressure on President Obama to institute a travel ban on Ebola stricken West Africa. At some point this stubborn dope will fold!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 23, 2014
President Obama – close down the flights from Ebola infected areas right now, before it is too late! What the hell is wrong with you?
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 5, 2014
One day before issuing the Travel ban on 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.
