TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): CNN, meanwhile, attacked the administration's coronavirus task force as “another example of Trump administration's lack of diversity." As if the color of the doctors matters. It does not matter at all. A month later, CNN warned that the real threat of coronavirus was racism against Asians. During last night's presidential press conference, Wajahat Ali of The New York Times complained that the presentation was “only one woman on stage surrounded by nine white men." Again, counting by race. If there was ever a time to drop that dumb and dangerous tick, it's now as a global epidemic bears down on our country. But they can't stop doing it and they won't. Because in the end, they care more about identity politics than they care about your life.


More afraid that blame might be cast than afraid that millions might die? That's it right there. That's the attitude that has left us vulnerable to coronavirus. Whatever weird guilt trip these people are on ought to be left to them and their psychiatrist to sort out and it will take awhile. But under no circumstances should they be anywhere near power. People will get hurt if they are. Because they don't care.
