The unhinged left is resorting to calling the coronavirus the “Trump virus,” as they double down on pandemic doom and gloom ahead of a soon to be released vaccine, doing all they can to assure that President Donald Trump doesn’t get credit.
Never mind that the timing of a COVID-19 vaccine was certainly accelerated by the president’s “Operation Warp Speed.”
With that longtime friend, Geraldo Rivera suggested that we call the vaccine “The Trump.”
Rivera made the suggestion Friday in an appearance on “Fox & Friends,” more or less as a consolation prize, given that the corrupt media establishment has deemed Joe Biden to be the next president — Trump’s pending legal challenges notwithstanding.
“I had an idea,” Rivera said. “With the world so divided and everybody telling him he has to give up and time to leave and time to transition and all the rest of it, why not name the vaccine ‘The Trump?'”
“Make it — have you gotten your Trump yet? It would be a nice gesture to him, and years from now it would become kind of a generic name,” he continued. “Have you got your Trump yet? I got my Trump, I’m fine. I wished we could honor him in that way, because he’s definitely the prime architect of this Operation Warp Speed and but for him we’d still be waiting, you know, into the grim winter these amazing, miraculous breakthroughs.”
On Thursday, Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen said Operation Warp Speed “is quite literally the greatest public health achievement of modern times.”
“Say what you will about Trump’s handling of the pandemic, he deserves credit for this,” Thiessen tweeted.
Donald Trump Jr. responded to say, “What do you think the odds are that a reporter from the Washington Post would write something like this a month ago?”
What do you think the odds are that a reporter from the Washington Post would write something like this a month ago? A couple of weeks ago all the things Trump said would happen (and did) we were told emphatically were lies. That’s the problem with journalism today! https://t.co/aPXRbjyIQs

Rivera began the segment talking about what ifs, suggesting that if the vaccine had been announced prior to the election that Trump would likely have been reelected — seems apparent that the memo has gone out at Fox News that the election is a done deal.
“I was just thinking of the old saying ‘Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest of those it might have been,'” he said. “So watching the guy from Pfizer saying that he’s going for the emergency use authorization today, what if it was three weeks ago that he had the same announcement? How different would history be if Pfizer and Moderna had announced that they had this fabulous vaccine and our issues, our problems were almost over and President Trump would, because he was the architect of it, he would have benefited, I think — the election would have been an entirely different story but for timing, if this thing was just a little earlier.”
It’s up for debate whether there were political implications behind the timing, though the head of Pfizer has stated there was not.
Of course, Rivera’s views fly in the face of the corrupt media establishment’s false narrative that President Trump has abdicated his responsibilities when it comes to the China plague.
