As I’ve written before, Democrats and Never Trumpers alike are fond of never letting a tragedy or crisis go to waste if they can figure out a way they can potentially benefit from it politically.
Along with that, when our country is in the midst of navigating uncharted waters as it is now, you often see what these people are really made of as their true colors really come out.
Such was the case earlier today on Nicolle Wallace’s “Deadline: White House” program on MSNBC as she interviewed presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s Wuhan coronavirus advisor Ron Klain, who was President Obama’s “Ebola czar.”
Wallace, who claims to still be a registered Republican even though she probably hasn’t voted for one since before Trump was elected in 2016, told Klain that “there’s something both tragic and pathetic and ironic about the fact that it took a color-blind, gender-blind, state-line-blind virus to sort of have all of the President’s sins from his first three years catch up with him.”
That’s pretty standard fare for Wallace. But what she said next was truly disgusting (bolded emphasis added):
“You can’t stand there and lie. You can’t contradict your scientists ’cause they’re the ones that stand at 66 and 68% public trust, not you. He’s down at 38%. Pence is lower than him. I mean, he needs those people whether he likes what they say or not. And I wonder what you think about whether or not there’s some silver lining there, that some of the things that we’ve been talking about for three years may be finally catching up with him?”

Sadly, Wallace is not the only Trump basher to have found a political “silver lining” in the deadly outbreak that has infected over 880,000 Americans, killing nearly 50,000 of them to date. CNN’s chief climate correspondent Bill Weir stated this morning that there was a perception that the virus “has helped humanity buy some time against global warming.”
What is wrong with these people?
