President Trump scolded Mike Bloomberg in response to a stomach-turning viral video where the former New York City mayor touches a pizza, puts it back in the box, and licks all his fingers. Bloomberg then uses the same hand to touch the top of a communal container of coffee.

Trump scolded Bloomberg on Twitter, writing: “Mini Mike, don’t lick your dirty fingers. Both unsanitary and dangerous to others and yourself!”  The president later deleted his tweet.

The video was apparently filmed at a campaign stop in Virginia. Shockingly, Bloomberg posted the video himself on his Snapchat account.

The video went viral amid mass public outrage over Bloomberg’s unsanitary handling of food amid the contagious coronavirus outbreak that has killed nine Americans so far.

Ironically, Bloomberg had bragged on Twitter that he’s much more capable of containing the epidemic than President Trump is.

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted:  “Truly disgusting! Also shows that Bloomberg has never been around other people in a communal work space. The fact that he and his ‘influencers’ put this out thinking it normalizes him is even scarier.”

Don Jr. then joked: “Mike, send me $1 billion as a retainer and I’ll teach you social media!”

The Democrats and their media minions are rabidly politicizing the coronavirus to attack President Trump. Many on the Left have criticized Trump’s reaction to the outbreak, saying it was too slow.

However, these critics said nothing in 2009, when Barack Obama waited for six months after the swine flu had infected millions of Americans and killed 1,000 people in the United States before declaring it a public health emergency.

In contrast, President Trump declared the coronavirus a national emergency in January — just weeks after the coronavirus was first observed in Wuhan, China in late-December.

The United States is currently developing a vaccine to wipe out the virus. Republican Senator Rand Paul — a physician — said there’s no cause for mass panic because no one in the world is better-prepared to handle this emergency than the United States.

So far, there have been 11 deaths in the U.S. from the coronavirus. Many of the deaths are linked to a nursing home in Washington state. Paul said while the deaths are obviously tragic, that’s too few a number to justify public hysteria.

“Until we start seeing major outbreaks where you tell me there are 10,000 people infected in Seattle, that’s when there should be true alarm,” Paul told Fox News. “But fortunately, we haven’t seen that yet. We’ve seen pockets of this around the world, but none of it is approaching what we see in China.”

Rand Paul added: “There are some antiviral drugs out there that have already been developed that may well actually work. There’s a really quick study going on that’ll probably be done within two to three weeks. We’ew not waiting a year for a vaccine, but actually looking at antiviral drugs that already are developed and have been used in humans and in animals.”
