Chuck Schumer: Whatever Donald Trump does or says is wrong

Chuck Schumer should really consider wearing a pin that reads “Whatever Donald Trump does or says is wrong.” If he did, he wouldn’t have to lecture the American public about the president’s “towering incompetence” and lack of seriousness about America’s problems.

That is what the Senate minority leader did last Monday when he tweeted out:

Too little too late.

That President Trump is trying to steal funds dedicated to fight Ebola is indicative of his towering incompetence and further proof that he and his administration aren’t taking the Coronavirus crisis as seriously as they need to be.

“Steal funds dedicated to fight Ebola”? Even at the height of the Ebola scare five years ago, the CDC was advising health workers returning from the disease’s epicenter in West Africa to monitor their health for 21 days but continue their normal activities. It doesn’t sound as though the outbreak was all that big a threat to the U.S. at the time, much less now. So why is Schumer in a panic over the president’s recommendation that the government redirect funds from an earlier outbreak to the current one?

A bigger problem with Schumer’s tweet is the taunt “Too little too late.” Several weeks ago his complaint was just the opposite — that Trump was doing too much too soon.

The tweet — since deleted! — presented Schumer with another opportunity to argue that Trump is xenophobic.
