Some big news from this administration concerning WHO funding
You would think that it would be a no-brainier to refuse to pay for an organization that has not only misinformed the world and has functioned as a subsidiary of a communist state responsible for shutting down the world by at best careless cultural practices and at worst careless release of a biological weapon.
Well if you’re a democrat or from the left that is apparently not the case to wit:
He just got done talking about how many countries are under siege. Is this really the time to suspend funding for World Health Organization?— David Axelrod (@davidaxelrod) April 14, 2020
That’s from David Axelrod and being a person who has actually run a winning campaign here is more.
Trump is always looking to blame someone else, the media, governors, now going off on WHO and other nations who didn’t suspend travel from China. Reminder, as @PaulaReidCBS pointed out yesterday – the question is what did Trump do with the time he bought after the China ban.— Katy Tur (@KatyTurNBC) April 14, 2020
Yeah let’s just forget that at the time President Trump made this suspension WHO was still saying publicly no human to human spread and you guys were calling him a alarmist and a racist.
For the US to have one of the WORST domestic responses of any developed country in the world and then CEASE contributions to @WHO in the middle of a raging global pandemic is an embarrassment—a sign of weakness, panic, and scapegoating. It also endangers American citizens. 1/2— Brett McGurk (@brett_mcgurk) April 15, 2020
As Glenn Reynolds has said repeatedly lately “It’s easy to tell who’s on the payroll, or at least on the team.” The real question to me is “How long have they been on that team?” I suspect quite a while.
And remember these are some of the more sane reactions to the President’s move but sane or not all of them are going to be part of the Trump Campaign ad blitz in the fall reminding people what side the left was on during this Pandemic, although frankly given that people are paying more attention then they ever had it might not be as necessary.
I’ll give the last word to Robert George
After alleging multiple errors by the WHO, Trump declares we won't get fooled again.— Robert A George (@RobGeorge) April 14, 2020
