Republicans/Fox News are downplaying the seriousness of the coronavirus

People will get sick because they are listening to Trump’s lies and Fox News. They are trying to downplay the virus because they think it could hurt Trump’s re-election. They care about that more than public health. Democrats, who have not been brainwashed, take it seriously.

Trump doesn’t want to hear bad news so his flunkies don’t tell him. I was an analyst for the federal government for 28 years and I found that executives appreciated it when you were honest and told them bad news.

1) This gave them a chance to react and respond promptly to the problem.

2) They were better off hearing it from you instead of someone outside of their organization.

If the only way Trump gets the truth is from media reports, his staff is not doing him any favors.
