Remember when the media and Democrats went gaga over a guy who urged his supporters to choose “hope over fear”? It was a catchy slogan, though devoid of any real meaning outside of making people believe Democrats would give you hope, while Republicans would instill fear.

Fast forward a few years later, and here we are – in the midst of a global pandemic with another captain at the helm. Without saying the actual words, President Trump is telling people to do what Obama urged people to do all those years ago: to choose hope over fear.

Except in this case, it’s not about choosing one political party over the other. Rather, Trump’s message to the American people is to not lose hope in the midst of the Wuhan coronavirus global pandemic.

I’ve watched over the last two weeks in disgust as Democrats and the mainstream media have tag teamed against Trump when it comes to him delivering this simple yet powerful message.

First, there was the media firestorm over how Trump went nuclear in response to a question from NBC News “journalist” Peter Alexander in which Alexander asked Trump if it was “possible that your impulse to put a positive spin on things may be giving Americans a false sense of hope?”

Later, when Trump told the nation about the possibilities presented by Hydroxychloroquine, the mainstream media immediately went negative. Here’s an example of their absurd coverage of Trump’s remarks about this drug, via Bloomberg:

Here was another, also from Bloomberg:

Then there was the whole bizarre “couple swallows toxic aquarium cleaner, man dies” story, which numerous “respectable” mainstream media news outlets ran with in an effort to bash Trump’s touting of Hydroxychloroquine to combat the virus.

There were also the “Trump is lying about how quickly work can get started on medical supplies” reports, which Ford promptly debunked.

In addition to that, after Trump told Fox News that he hoped the country could begin to get back on its feet again by Easter, the media erupted. The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler, who was last seen trying to imitate Adam Schiff, was one of many who balked at the idea, accusing Trump of deliberately giving people false hope:

Worst. hot take. ever.

The media’s whole method of operation from the start of Trump’s presidency has been to frame every story from the perspective of “Orange Man Bad” and “we must help elect Democrats.” And instead of taking a break from it as the entire country bands together to battle a deadly virus, they’ve ramped up their efforts!

But they’re failing.

Multiple polls confirm that, despite the media/left’s best efforts, the American people approve of how Trump is handling the pandemic. They’re choosing to be hopeful that we can beat this thing. There is a lot of fear there, to be sure, but without hope, many feel lost. So they’re latching on to the promise of a new and better day ahead.

Through all the chaos and controversy, Trump understands that.

He’s doing what any president would and should do in the midst of a crisis. Give people a sense of hope, a belief that we’ll come out of the crisis stronger than ever before. Bush did it after 9/11, and that’s what Trump is doing right now.

The media repeatedly dinging him over it is a really bad look, but the media is going to do media things, so the beat goes on.

While some Democrats are sensibly dropping the Orange Man Bad routine, others are still holding on tightly to their TDS – even in the midst of a global pandemic where everyone needs to be working together and putting political games aside.

Hillary Clinton, of course, fits into the “holding on to my TDS” camp. Still bitter about her failed 2016 presidential campaign against Donald Trump, Clinton never passes up the opportunity to take swipes at the President, and today was no exception.

As we’ve reported here at RedState, Democrats and the media are obsessed with hammering Trump on why he continues to use the term “Chinese virus” to refer to the Wuhan coronavirus. It’s “racist”, they say, in spite of the fact that the virus originated in Wuhan, China and in spite of the fact that diseases are often named based on their place of origin.

Nevertheless, Clinton wasn’t about to let this crisis go to waste. Taking to the Twitter machine this morning, Clinton posted a tweet that sounded like it came straight out of the Chinese government’s handbook:

Two days ago, this was tweeted from China’s state-owned “media”:

Odd how similarly they sound, isn’t it?

While Clinton was apparently okay with parroting Chinese propaganda because Orange Man Bad, others were understandably not cool with it, and quickly called her out. Others chose to give her a tour down memory lane:

Though her remarks echoing Chinese government disinformation were appalling, they did remind us of one comforting thing: Thank goodness she’s not president.

The last several weeks have been hella bad for Chris Matthews.

He’s faced a wave of criticism from supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders over his relentlessly negative coverage of the Sanders campaign, even comparing Sanders’ win in Nevada to the Nazis invading France (Matthews would later apologize). He had an embarrassing meltdown over the Iowa Democratic caucus debacle.

Just last week, Matthews confused Sen. Lindsey Graham’s general election opponent Jaime Harrison, who is black, with Sen. Tim Scott – on live TV. That same week, he badgered Sen. Elizabeth Warren over her “kill it” attack on Michael Bloomberg during the debate, asking her 6 times in a minute and half segment if she really felt Bloomberg said “kill it” and what her evidence was to back up her claim.

His treatment of Warren prompted calls from feminist groups for his firing. Right after that, a new #MeToo claim against Matthews from journalist Laura Bassett surfaced. Matthews was also noticeably absent from MSNBC’s coverage of the SC Democratic presidential primary Saturday, prompting speculation as to what might be going on behind the scenes.

He ended that speculation to some degree on tonight’s edition of “Hardball” by abruptly announcing his retirement, and apologizing to women he has offended with his reportedly crude behavior.

Watch:

Here’s the transcript of his statement:

What’s particularly intriguing about his announcement is that it appears his colleagues didn’t know about it beforehand. Also, instead of completing the show, Matthews walked off set and didn’t return after he made his statement at the beginning of the program:

There are conflicting reports as to whether this was a mutual decision or whether he was forced out by the higher-ups. In any event, his co-workers at MSNBC and NBC are all weighing in on social media about what a wonderful “mentor and friend” he was, yada yada, while pretty much everyone else is like “good riddance.”

Though Matthews is now out at the struggling news network, one mystery about him endures:

Inquiring minds wanna know…

There she goes again!

As I’ve said before, the Democrat/mainstream media industrial complex all love to coo about how politically smart failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton supposedly is. But those of us in the cheap seats who marvel at her uncanny ability stick her foot in her mouth at every opportunity see things from a much more realistic perspective.

Over the last few months, Clinton has had the audacity to lecture people against “witness intimidation” in the midst of speculation that Clinton pal Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself (some have suggested the Clinton machine had a hand in his death). In December when the articles of impeachment were announced, Clinton tweeted “no one is above the law”, which left many scratching their heads considering the laundry list of things she’s gotten away with in recent years.

To put it in the simplest of terms, Hillary is the queen of epic self-awareness fails, and this week has been no exception.

Clinton’s latest self-awareness fail came after a tweet from MSNBC contributor and former U.S. Attorney under President Obama Joyce Vance about “threats” the Trump administration was allegedly making against “disloyal” federal government employees:

Clinton responded by stating this was “banana-republic stuff”:

Twitter users wasted no time giving her a few overdue history lessons:

There was also this:

It’s almost like Hillary Clinton expects people to forget her long track record. Well, the mainstream media may conveniently and self-servingly do that sort of thing, but the rest of us are not remotely interested in being so obliging.
