David Axelrod's attempt to slam Trump's handling of the coronavirus gets upended by his own Twitter timeline

It’s September 2020, and the Left is desperately clinging to an excerpt from a Bob Woodward book. Former Obama adviser David Axelrod has joined the chorus of those attempting to slam Trump for something he said earlier this year that has amazingly been kept under wraps (for months) until this past week. There is a justifiable uproar over what @realDonaldTrump did in February, when he downplayed the seriousness of a virus that he knew to be airborne and deadly.But what about what he’s doing RIGHT NOW?https://t.co/bF8YSKlCCL — David Axelrod (@davidaxelrod) September 13, 2020 The problem for Axelrod is that his Twitter timeline would fail to meet his own standard.

Seems dangerous. — Stephen L. Miller (@redsteeze) September 13, 2020 Axelrod’s double-standard aside, Trump has explained that his intention early on was to promote a calm response to the threat. ABC's Jon Karl: "Why did you lie to the American people and why should we trust what we have to say now?" Trump: "I'm not gonna jump up and down and scream, 'PEOPLE ARE GOING TO DIE!' No, I'm not going to do that. We're going to get through this." pic.twitter.com/6Dk1u1DFjT — Kelb Hull (@CalebJHull) September 10, 2020 It’s doubtful that even the most ardent Trump supporters believe that his administration’s response to the coronavirus was flawless. There will always be plenty to second-guess when it comes to presidential administrations responding to various crises. Perhaps someday David Axelrod can share a thread about the Obama administration’s response to H1N1. *** RELATED: Donald Trump calls out Bob Woodward for keeping ‘bad or dangerous’ COVID19 comments under wraps until now recent stories
