Fox News contributor Sara Carter praised President Donald Trump as a “true fighter” and argued that Americans “have got to continue to live life” in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking with Fox News host Steve Hilton on Sunday, the journalist acknowledged that COVID-19 is “more powerful” than the flu, but emphasized that it cannot cause society to come to a standstill. Carter also urged a return to the “facts” by the left-wing media which has continued its attacks on the president.
Carter addressed the media’s coverage of the messaging coming from the White House on the president’s health during her appearance on “The Next Revolution” on Fox News, as liberals have criticized what they see as conflicting reports.
“We have seen the president speak. He is a true warrior, he is in a hospital where my husband was treated as well,” Carter said, speaking of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland and her husband, Martin Bailey who served in the U.S. Special Forces and was blinded in both eyes after being wounded in a battle in Afghanistan.

“What a fighter, what a true fighter,” she said of the president.
“This is a representation of America,” Carter continued, referring to Trump’s decision to venture out of the medical facility to wave at supporters gathered outside as he drove by in a motorcade on Sunday.
Not surprisingly, the president was blasted by the left for the move which was criticized as just a photo opportunity and for allegedly risking the safety and health of medical teams, the secret Service and others. The White House Correspondents’ Association was even outraged because the press pool was not informed of the drive-by greeting.

“This isn’t about being locked down and being afraid,” Carter said.
“Living life is always about taking risks. We don’t want to over-take those risks. We don’t want to put anyone in danger, of course. But it’s like the flu. And we have seen that even though it’s more powerful, and we know COVID-19 is a problem, and we want to resolve this,” she told Hilton.
“We have got to continue to live life,” Carter continued.
“I think the president is showing strength and giving the American people strength. And as far as the media is concerned, the media needs to take a step back, start reporting the facts and stop going after the president of the United States,” she said, adding that the media should be holding China and the World Health Organization accountable.
“Sometimes the cure is worse than what’s happening right now,” Carter concluded.
Hilton agreed but clarified her point on the comparison of the coronavirus and the flu.
“On the flu, I totally get what you’re saying which is, like other diseases and illnesses that we experience, we have to actually find ways to live with it without shutting down our whole economy,” he said. “Obviously it’s a very different disease and we’re learning that all the time in terms of its transmissibility and all the rest of it.”
“We have to fight it and beat it,” Hilton said. “And that’s why I think this is going to be a plus for the president, because he’s now living proof of doing that.”
The sentiment and calls for Americans to continue living life were echoed on social media.
Open it all up. Make your own damn decisions about how much risk you are willing to take. If you want to stay home, stay home. If you want to live more freely, live more freely.

During his earlier monologue, the Fox News host had blasted Democrats and the mainstream media for exploiting the president’s coronavirus diagnosis “for partisan ends.”

After slamming politicians like Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and others for their reactions, Hilton declared that none of that was as bad as the media.
“Their whole reaction has been one giant ‘I told you so,'” he said, specifically targeting “Biden aide masquerading as a journalist,” CNN’s Jake Tapper.
“We’ve heard a lot about herd immunity,” Hilton said after a clip of Tapper directing his smug criticism at the president. “What we’re seeing now on CNN and MSNBC and the New York Times and Washington Post and all the rest of the establishment propagandists, is herd stupidity.”
