Likely Democrat Party nominee Joe Biden is pivoting to the General Election.
To that end, Biden is trying to draw a contrast with President Trump on responding to the outbreak of the Chinese coronavirus.
But Joe Biden’s response to the coronavirus left everyone asking one tough question.
The latest liberal outrage at President Trump was the dustup over the President calling the coronavirus the “Chinese virus.”
President Trump began referring to the virus as the “Chinese virus” after China began pushing a smear campaign that the United States military created the coronavirus.
Instead of defending the honor of the men and women in uniform Biden pushed Chinese communist government propaganda by smearing the President as a racist.
“Stop the xenophobic fear-mongering. Be honest. Take responsibility. Do your job,” Biden tweeted.
The Biden campaign planted their flag on this hill when top advisor Symone Sanders appeared on Fox News and in an interview with Martha MacCallum Sanders doubled-down on Biden’s tweet claiming the President used a “racial slur” when using the phrase “Chinese virus.”
“[I]f the Trump administration is getting the number of tests out that they said are going to get out, then that is amazing. But the reality is, we have not seen the tests that the Trump administration promised in the field and we have not seen those results yet. Now, results could be coming. […] And some of what he said today was good. But the reality is, he also stood at the podium and called the coronavirus, COVID-19, what I would suggest is a racial slur,” Sanders told MacCallum.
Joe Biden refusing to use the phrase “Chinese virus” brings back bad memories of Barack Obama declining to ever use the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism.”
And the lesson from the Obama Presidency was that if a President is unwilling to call an enemy by its proper name that President is unwilling to put in a place a strategy to defeat that enemy.
