NBC News uses 9/11 to bash Trump as nation mourns the fallen

On Friday, the 19th anniversary of the horrific 9/11/01 attacks on America and her people, NBC News could not resist using the solemn occasion to bash President Trump. 

In an article titled “9/11 anniversary highlights Trump’s failures as America faces a new crisis — from within,” the author, Kristopher Purcell, a former George Bush staffer mercilessly goes after the 45th President, comparing him to the attacks on 9/11 that needlessly slaughtered 2,977 people. 

“This year, on Sept. 11, 2020, our nation faces multiple crises simultaneously. But behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, we have a man incapable of resolve, incapable of focus, incapable of strength, incapable of reassurance,” writes Purcell. 

Purcell claims the President is not doing enough to aid in the COVID-19 pandemic, writing, “Americans don’t expect our presidents to be perfect; we know they will make mistakes. But they do expect our leaders to work to ease tensions and calm fears and to be honest about the challenges we face. Instead of bringing us together, addressing racial injustice and presenting a national strategy to stop the spread of the virus, Trump has intentionally sowed division, encouraged white nationalists and vigilantes while downplaying the threats they pose to society, stoked fear and spread misinformation with dangerous consequences.”

But just this week, the left-wing media has bashed President Trump in a renewed attack on his coronavirus response, for him keeping calm during the crisis. Instead, the left-wing media claim the President “downplayed” the virus, despite him keeping a consistent tone and going by the experts’ advice. Even Dr. Fauci, Trump’s leading advisor on COVID-19 said he saw no indication of the president downplaying the virus. 

In another despicable series of paragraphs, Purcell writes:

9/11 wasn’t just an attack on American citizens; it was an attack on the very idea of American democracy. That democracy is under attack again today, not just from a foreign adversary (Russia) or a foreign-born virus (COVID-19) but from behind the very desk where presidents since Rutherford B. Hayes have made life-and-death decisions.

Donald Trump represents an existential threat to our Constitution, our security and our health. That’s why hundreds of my fellow former Bush administration officials have openly pledged to support his Democratic opponent in November.

You don’t need to support the full Joe Biden-Kamala Harris agenda; I don’t. But the nation cannot survive another four years of Donald Trump’s chaos, corruption, incompetence and lies. On Nov. 3, or earlier if you vote by mail, I urge you to vote for the only candidate who will help this nation to heal.

Our nation will not be safe until Joe Biden sits behind the Resolute Desk.

The fear-mongering spewed forth on 9/11 from the anti-Trump former Bush staffer is yet another desperate ploy for attention and relevance in a world that does not trust the mainstream media, such as NBC News, which gave a platform for this divisive, anti-American rhetoric on a day where all Americans should come together and put politics to the side, at least to honor the nearly 3,000 innocent lives lost.
