PASSING THE BUCK: New Orleans Mayor Blames TRUMP for Not Canceling Mardi Gras During Virus Outbreak

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.27.20

New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell deflected the growing criticism over her decision to conduct her city’s annual Mardi Gras celebration on CNN this week; blaming the federal government for failing to disclose the dangers of the Coronavirus.

“All the reports are that within a week or two after Mardi Gras, all these cases started emerging in Louisiana… Back in February, the CDC said we should be prepared for this new virus… But you’re saying no one in the federal government urged you to postpone Mardi Gras?” asked CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

 

“That’s absolutely correct. Not only that, it was backed up with the response from our national leader. When it’s not taken seriously at the federal level, it’s very difficult to transcend down to the local level in making these decision,” said Mayor Cantrell.

A NEW LOW: NY Times Article Blames Coronavirus Outbreak on ‘Evangelicals’ and Religious Americans

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.30.20

A sickening new article published by the New York Times Friday viciously claims the “road to Coronavirus hell” was “paved by Evangelicals” and other religious Americans; directly blaming hundreds of deaths and thousands of infections on people of faith.

“Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown,” writes Katherine Stewart.

“By all accounts, President Trump’s tendency to trust his gut over the experts on issues like vaccines and climate change does not come from any deep-seated religious conviction. But he is perfectly in tune with the religious nationalists who form the core of his base. In his daily briefings from the White House, Mr. Trump actively disdains and contradicts the messages coming from his own experts and touts as yet unproven cures,” adds the author.

“When a strong centralized response is needed from the federal government, it doesn’t help to have an administration that has never believed in a federal government serving the public good. Ordinarily, the consequences of this kind of behavior don’t show up for some time. In the case of a pandemic, the consequences are too obvious to ignore,” Stewart concludes.
