Today The View host Sunny Hostin actually claimed that Trump only wants to reopen the economy because it’s hurting his business, via Newsbusters:
She based her comments off those made by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who was on Tucker Carlson’s show essentially arguing that we shouldn’t lose our country in the process of trying to protect people from this virus. As someone turning 70 soon, Patrick basically suggested that his life is less important to him than leaving his kids the same great country he grew up in. He said he was heartened that Trump wants to get the country back running again soon and believes, as Trump said, we can both protect people and get the economy going again.
Of course Sonny Hostin twisted his comments around, suggesting he’s saying that the lives of our elderly are worth less than our kids having a good economy, and she called it disgusting and despicable. That’s how she starts out.
But then she pivots to Trump, claiming the main reason he wants to get the economy going again is because of his business and him wanting to line his pockets or something:
When you look at Trump’s personal businesses, you know that he is losing almost $500,000 a day because 6 out of his 7 hotels are losing money. They are shuttered every day, and that is why our Founding fathers put the emoluments clause into the Constitution, because our president should be more concerned about the lives of Americans rather than lining his own pockets and I think that’s what this is really about!
The vicious anti-Trump hatred from leftists truly knows no bounds. Trump is just a greedy monster to them, when there is just no proof of anything they are saying. It’s patently absurd and ridiculous.
