Trish Regan: Coronavirus is Trump's fault, if you ask the Democrats

Liberals aren't blaming China for the deadly virus

We’ve reached a tipping point. The hate is boiling. Many in the liberal media are using coronavirus in an attempt to demonize and destroy the president, despite the virus originating halfway around the world.

This is yet another attempt to impeach, and sadly, it seems the left cares little for any of the destruction they leave in their wake, including losses in the market. This, unfortunately, is all just part of political casualties for them.

And, like with the Robert Mueller investigation, like with the Ukraine-gate, they don’t care who they hurt, whether it be their need to create mass hysteria to encourage a massive selloff in an overly anxious stock market or, to create mass hysteria in order to stop our economy dead in its tracks. Bill Maher actually said how much he craved a recession as a way to rid the world of Donald Trump.

I spoke with a doctor on Friday who told me the World Health Organization and others typically do whatever they can to get the word out. It is critical that people are aware of problems so that the public can improve their health and hygiene routines. That’s what helps to lessen infection rates.
