Citation From the March 17, 2020, edition of Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight:

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): China's ambassadors are already spreading the lie that the Wuhan virus originated here in America, maybe created in a lab by the Pentagon. Don't be shocked if at least one American media outlet promotes that idea. Many of them are already parroting the rest of the Chinese Communist Party line. A week ago, aging propagandist David Frum of The Atlantic suggested calling the coronavirus, quote, "The Trump plague" instead of the Wuhan virus.

Today, NBC News sent a tweet suggesting the president's use of the phrase "Chinese virus" was, quote, "both inaccurate and harmful, in tying racist associations between the virus and those from China." Another statement written by morons in our news media. How is it inaccurate to call a virus from China "Chinese?" 

The president, to his credit, does not seem intimidated. 


Good for him. That was Trump at his very best.
