Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, May 18, 2020

Peter Navarro, the White House trade adviser, said in an interview Sunday suggested that China "sent hundreds of thousands" on aircraft throughout the world to "seed" the spread of the virus. Navarro told ABC News' "This Week" that the "Chinese"behind the shield of the World Health Organization"for two months hid the virus from the world and then sent hundreds of thousands of Chinese on aircraft to Milan, New York and around the world to seed that. They could have kept it in Wuhan, but instead, it became a pandemic." George Stephanopoulos, the host of the program, asked if he was accusing Beijing of deliberately spreading the virus. Navarro said he was not implying that it was intentional. A four-page Department of Homeland Security intelligence report dated May 1 and obtained by The Associated Press said Chinese leaders "intentionally concealed the severity" of the pandemic from the world in early January.

Donald Trump really wants to get re-elected.

The virus started in Europe, by the way.

China is seeking a global hegemony.

This really isn't a far-fetched theory when we look at the damage this virus has caused for our country.

Why does it sound like the typical Trumpite fantasy used to excuse Donald Trump from personal responsibility?

You and he do this sort of thing a lot.

Maybe you thought no one noticed?

How much of that damage is Trump's?

Come on, JEFF. You know that the number is much greater than zero.

This sort of thing is really, sadly funny.

If the Chinese want to take over, and if you really don't want them to; then ditch their greatest weapon, Donald Trump.

China said today that it was not the time to investigate into the origins of the virus, or was that the DNC ? It gets harder and harder to tell them apart.

Navarro is another POS trash out there spreading blatant and easily proven lies trying desperately to find someone other than Fat Nixon to blame.

Blaming the CDC who was lead by a hand picked person by Fat Nixon and was warned this guy was unqualified.

The thing I don't get is how or why making an issue about how the virus got here is more important than what we do now that it is here.

IMO, focusing on a possible bioterror attack from China just takes time away from being able to inform people about what is happening right now and how we deal with it. I mean, sure, if they think this was an intentional move by China, investigate the ---- out of that secretly and when this is all over they can explain to us what they know and how they plan to respond, but to be using up air time over that now only confuses the issue we're presently facing and gets in the way of efficiently handling the crisis.

What we don't know. If China intentionally caused virus infections to occur in the United States.
What we do know. Donald Trump ignored the problem and pretended it would just go away and that attitude has caused the deaths of 90,000 Americans.

If there where good evidence China did what he is accusing them of, the entire international community would be screaming for China's head. When I start to here more than a couple of legitimate foreign government agencies back up this claim I will believe it. Until then I will assume this is just more baloney from the right wing trying to cover for trump.

#6 | Posted by rhet at

And yet the origins of the virus have been and are being investigated.

It came from Europe.

So your point is?

Here you go, let us know if 100 countries demanding an investigation is good enough for you...

China has been trying to avoid fallout from coronavirus. Now 100 countries are pushing for an investigation

"Bubuhbuh Chyna" indeed.

Except the investigation has nothing to do with the topic of the thread.

Nobody has tried to "protect" China from anything.

Are you intentionally being this stupid? Both of you?

It was Trump who cut funding to the CDC which resulted in their having to cut the team they had in place in China, not 'The Left.'

Duh

Navarro: China used air travel to seed' virus in early stage

In that case, China attacked us.
Is Trump going to retaliate?
LOL

Listen to this sycophant:

If the camera panned down you'd probably see Trump's little hand up his ass.

His language is absolutely that of somebody asserting that it's purposeful, denial aside.

And it was Trump who ignored numerous intelligence reports on COVID-19 in China, reaching the U.S., andbecoming a pandemic that reached America as early as early last November.

Not "The Left"

The right is so ---- bent on not pillorying Trump over his incompetent response and early denials over the seriousness of COVID-19 they'll tie themselves in pretzels to place the blame elsewhere. Just like Trump.

Whatever China did, they did.

We have millions of cases only due to what our president DIDN'T do.

Not to mention, whatever China did to spread disinformation the Trump administration is doing now for the same purposes.

And all we get to that fact is silence from Jeffy and RoC.

True.

Quote China disinformation but put Trump's byline on it, and they'd line up to swear its veracity.

It will be 95,000 dead sometime today. Not counting the cases hidden by Georgia, Nebraska, Florida, and Arizona.
