On Tuesday a PAC run by a former aide to Hillary Clinton started to run ads all over the country attacking President Trump on his response to the virus.

If the PAC is run by a former aide, you can bet dollars to doughnuts Hillary approved the political strike.

This ad buy is akin to attacking Ike the morning of D-Day. While the president and his team work for the American people, Hillary and her team say this, “From the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak, Donald Trump has repeatedly misled the American people and exposed us to unnecessary danger. His failure to lead continues to have real life and death consequences as hospitals, local and state governments, small businesses, and millions of Americans are left without the tools and information they need.”

More proof that the Democrats do not see the virus as a public health threat.  They see it as a political opportunity to hurt the president. That is all.

They don’t care one whit about whether Americans live or die. But with the stock market just registering its biggest day ever and the president and his team getting their rescue package through Congress, this Hillary ad may fall flat on its face.

Team Trump quickly responded to the attack, “It used to be that Americans faced national adversity with unity, but Joe Biden and his allies have abandoned that principle in favor of rank, despicable politics.

They offer nothing but partisan sniping from the sidelines and seek to undermine the federal response to the crisis by misinforming and frightening people,” said a statement from the campaign team.

It continued: “The ad also contains the already disproven lie that President Trump called the virus a ‘hoax,’ when in fact he was referring to Democrat and media criticisms of the federal response as ‘their new hoax.’

All Joe Biden knows about handling a public health crisis is that the Obama White House had to apologize for his irresponsible remarks during the swine flu outbreak in 2009. Americans can see that President Trump is out front and leading this nation and is the clear choice to see us through the crisis.”

More political attacks and miscalculations from the Democrats. Every time they do this they increase the price they will pay for it in November.
