Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Monday, Oct. 26, called out Democrats over their fear-mongering pandemic, accusing them of using “the virus panic button” to scare people away from voting. 

“It’s the only way to scare old people into voting for someone who seems more like an assisted living resident than future president, [and] as if on cue in the final week of the campaign, the media is looking to ‘Vice President COVID’ to do the live heavy lifting for old Joe [Biden],” she said.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has made the U.S. response to the CCP Virus (coronavirus) pandemic a cornerstone of his campaign to attack the incumbent president.  

Biden, who chose to run his campaign through the internet, has repeatedly called for a national mask mandate to stop the spread of the virus. At the final presidential debate, Biden issued a warning message to Americans, saying that people are going to face a “dark winter.”

Though researchers are making progress in coronavirus tests and treatment drugs like convalescent plasma therapeutics, the media is helping the former vice president by “breathlessly” covering spikes in coronavirus cases in order to keep “Joe’s running mate front and center,” Ingraham noted.

“They said that this could go on through 2021 into 2022: That basically ended up being an endorsement for Joe Biden, of course. And hearing the drumbeat—we’re going to have universal masking, social distancing going into 2022, the financial markets took a hit today,” she said. “Investors clearly do not want more lockdowns, which would obviously put the brakes on our current recovery for tens of millions out of work.”

She also pointed out that European countries, which use similar pandemic restrictions pushed by Biden and Democrats, have failed to control the pandemic. 

“But Biden’s keepers will keep inflicting untold emotional, physical, and financial harm on the millions of Americans with their ‘strategy,'” she said. “We must not allow that to happen over a virus, even one as horrid and tragic, and awful as this one.”

President Trump’s administration is “working to ensure that no American has to pay for the [CCP Virus] vaccine.” It plans to announce that the vaccines will be covered under Medicare or Medicaid once they are full developed and released, Politico reported Monday.

President Trump, 74, who had contracted the virus and recovered from it, took to Twitter on Monday to blast the “Fake News” for pushing their fear-mongering.

“We have made tremendous progress with the China Virus, but the Fake News refuses to talk about it this close to the Election. COVID, COVID, COVID is being used by them, in total coordination, in order to change our great early election numbers. Should be an election law violation!” the president tweeted.
