CNN’s Jake Tapper Gets Schooled By Surgeon General On White House Coronavirus Response
CNN host Jake Tapper asked: “Is the President’s desire to artificially keep the numbers low by keeping Americans who are off the coast out of the United States; is that desire impacting health decisions to help save these Americans who have coronavirus or who could possibly have it?”
U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams: Well, I don’t want to play politics here. But I do want to say, I’ve been in the Situation Room every day. When the President comes in, he makes it clear that he wants the best advice from his health experts. As far as the cruise ships are concerned, our priorities are number one, making sure people who are on those cruise ships and who need medical attention can get it. And we’ve flown people off the ships, we’ve flown CDC teams into the ships to help.
Number two, we want to get people off the ships as quickly and safely as we can. And number three, we want to protect our communities. And that’s a delicate balance that requires the cooperation of many different partners, the Department of Defense, Coast Guard, and others. But again, we want to make sure we’re taking care of those people on the ship and in a way that protects them, but also protects communities.
Despite multiple attempts by CNN host Jake Tapper to seemingly embarrass the Trump administration with their response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) during Sunday’s State of the Union, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams schooled him on the facts. Tapper even questioned if President Trump was even listening to the advice of medical professionals, only to be told the multiple doctors in the room were not being suppressed.
At one point, Tapper tried to stoke public fear by suggesting Trump was willing to sacrifice Americans on a cruise ship as so not to increase the number of people infected by COVID-19. “Is the President’s desire to artificially keep the numbers low by keeping Americans who are off the coast out of the United States; is that desire impacting health decisions to help save these Americans who have coronavirus or who could possibly have it?” he demanded to know.

It is easy to tear down, criticize and second guess others. Much more difficult to find solutions and work towards a common goal. Jake Tapper as most of the MSM are parasites living off the blood of others. They make no positive contribution because it’s all about their chosen narrative.
