Thus a new scandal erupts …
Prior to and following the start of President Donald Trump’s coronavirus announcement Wednesday evening, a hot mic reportedly caught him making some otherwise completely non-controversial remarks.
“Uh what, oh f–k. Uh oh, I got a pen mark. Anybody have any white … you have any white stuff?” a hot mic caught him saying before the announcement began.
“Alright … ohhhkay,” a hot mic likewise caught him saying after the conclusion of his announcement.

None of this ought to be controversial, especially not after former President Barack Hussein Obama was caught on hot mic promising the world to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Thanks to Trump Derangement Syndrome run amok, however, these benign remarks triggered exasperation from members of the self-proclaimed “Resistance.”

If this president’s appalling dumbshit callousness wasn’t already priced in this hot mic moment would be a week-long scandal https://t.co/diJiqhDxxg

Meanwhile Trump looked and sounded ill, couldn’t open one eye, sniffed constantly, read inaccurately from a teleprompter necessitating White House corrections to be released, and then showed his true colours on a hot mic after the speech. But yeah, he’s your guy right?

What should be clear about the hot mic is this is all about fuckin OPTICS for Trump, they’re literally throwing an unfit & dangerous man before the cameras who knows he can’t do this job and tbh he doesn’t wanna do it. He is an imminent threat to us now more than ever!

Trump just said “Oh fuck” on hot mic C-SPAN because he had a pen mark on his shirt because that’s all he cares about, and we’re all gonna die.#TrumpAddress #presidentialaddress #Trumpspeech https://t.co/Oct9QpxS2a

The narrative from the left always remains the same: #OrangeManBad.
Conversely, those who acknowledge that the president is a normal human being like everybody else were mystified by this hypocrisy and irrationality of the left.
OMG really … who cares … not as good as Obama and his Russian hot mic … lets play that one .. just wait until after the election … ok comrade Obama … ????????????

Who cares about this hot mic moment? It’s understandable when you’re going on a major tv address. It’s not like Obama telling Russia he can do more after the election.

So what, a reaction, people cant have a reaction. Dem hot mic moments are much more serious than this crap

Trump was caught saying ‘oh f—” into a ‘hot mic’ moments before he began his televised speech – So what!!! Look for some Democrat going to a Federal judge and obtain an injunction

Same people who just got done telling us that Biden screaming at a blue collar working and trying to fight him make him more endearing will also be telling us how horrible Trump is because he said fuck on a hot mic.

Trump says oh F* on hot mic….who cares? Not me….at least he’s not cursing ppl out like Joe Biden https://t.co/QyrmQNRn8K

A lot of the criticism centered on the left’s reflexive defense of front-runner Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden and his endless gaffes.
After all, Trump’s hot mic “gaffes” come amid Biden having been caught on mic (not hot mic) telling an everyday American that he’s “full of s–t” and then threatening to slap that same American.
Today Joe Biden argued with a voter, called the AR-15 an “AR-14” and then threatened to slap the voter in the face. This is an old man losing control of his mind. At what point do Democrats realize what a giant mistake they’ve made backing senile Joe? pic.twitter.com/PBj3fuKEAu

The stunning footage triggered very few complaints from the left, which has been far too busy attacking both supporters of the president and supporters of Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders for highlighting Biden’s failing mental state.
