LA Times Justifies Trump Catching COVID-19 By Comparing Him To When Reagan Almost Got Assassinated

On Friday, the LA Times released a bizarre news report where they justified President Trump catching the Coronavirus by comparing his situation to when former President Ronald Reagan almost got assassinated.

Reagan “hadn’t spent months downplaying assassins,” the LA Times wrote.


“When President Ronald Reagan was shot and nearly killed by a would-be assassin, the country rallied around him,” said Del Quentin Wilber. “But he also hadn’t spent eight months downplaying the threat of deranged gunmen.”

Check out what the Daily Wire reported:

The Los Angeles Times writer highlighted Reagan being shot and then claimed that it was “very much in doubt” whether Trump would garner the type of sympathy that Reagan did “not only because of the events leading up to his illness, but also the sharp differences between the personalities of the two men, which can be seen by their immediate reactions to their health crises.”

The report attacked Trump’s credibility, claiming that it has been “nearly four years of repeated falsehoods and disinformation.”

There was widespread backlash to the report online with many calling out the classlessness of the piece, while others noted that it was not even listed as an op-ed, but was published as a news story.

Journalist Yashar took to Twitter to say: “I thought this was like an opinion piece but it’s a news story? Just an insane way to frame this. Other publications did stuff like ‘After months of downplaying Coronavirus threat…’ but they didn’t involve presidential assassinations.”

Democrat and former CIA officer Bryan Dean Wright tweeted: “A new low in American journalism.”

Radio show host from Seattle Jason Rantz wrote: “Whenever I think I can’t actually be shocked at tasteless framing from the media, things like this get posted to remind you that some media outlets are enjoying the @realDonaldTrump news. These people are unhinged.”

Democrats have ceased this opportunity to slam and scold President Trump.

On Friday morning, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi responded to the news about how President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump had contracted the coronavirus. The Speaker started out by saying how "sad" it was but then quickly pivoted to scolding the President.

“This is tragic, it’s very sad, but it also is something that, again, going into crowds, unmasked, and all the rest, was sort of a brazen invitation for this to happen,” Pelosi said during an interview with MSNBC. “Sad that it did, but nonetheless, hopeful that it will be a transition to a saner approach to what this virus is all about.”

“Maybe now that people who see the president of the United States, with all the protection he has and the first lady still having this exposure it might be, as you say, a learning experience,” she said earlier in the interview. “More than learning, it has to be something that is acted upon.”
