Democrats and Media Criticize Protesters and Trump

Protests are erupting throughout the country over the state-mandated stay-at-home orders due to the coronavirus.

Protesters are calling for an end to the stay-at-home orders.

Meanwhile, Democrats are blasting the protesters for taking to the streets and are criticizing President Trump for backing them.

President Trump defended the state protests during a White House press briefing and on Twitter because some governors have gone too far.

Through an executive order, Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) imposed strict stay-at-home orders that prohibit family and friends from visiting, placed restrictions on the types of businesses that can remain open and prohibits the sale of non-essential items.

On MSNBC, Representative Debbie Dingell (D-MI) supported Whitmer and criticized the Michigan protesters for “bringing fear and hatred” and called the president’s liberate tweets “very dangerous.”

Democrats and the mainstream media are blasting President Trump over his Liberate Minnesota, Michigan and Virginia Tweets.

President Trump posted three separate Tweets where he targeted each state with the word “Liberate.”

With Virginia, the president also urged citizens to save their Second Amendment rights.

Washington Governor Jay Inslee criticized Trump’s liberate Tweets on ABC News’ “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called the protests “unfortunate” on “Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace” and defended her criticism of President Trump’s new guidance to open up the U.S. economy.

The mainstream media is not challenging Democrats when they make misleading statements.

On ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” Pelosi claimed President Trump called the coronavirus a hoax and added his “delay and denial cased death.”

The reaction by Democrats shows just how far they are disconnected from Americans.

With 22 million Americans seeking unemployment benefits, Democrats should sympathize with their concerns and not slam them.

Democrat governors have overreached and they need to pull back and come up with policies that strike a balance between the health risk and respect for American’s liberties.
