Of course you disagree. You're defending your image. Even this response of yours is a desperate attempt to make a false equivalence.I disagree with that.
Are there some Trump supporters who don't take it seriously? Sure.
Are there some Democrats who don't take it seriously? Sure.
There are flat-earthers, conspiracy theorists, and anti-vaxxers on both sides of the aisle.
But you think daily press conferences on COVID-19, with death tolls, gave the impression that nothing serious was going on?
I watched them all and I did not get that impression.
"Also on Wednesday, the Pew Research Center released a look at how people’s sources of news about the virus correlate to their views of it. Among the sixth of respondents who identify President Trump and the White House coronavirus task force as the source of information they rely upon the most, more than half say the virus has been made into a bigger deal than it should have been — suggesting that they are less likely to be concerned about it as a health risk."
Why would that be? Is it because Donald Trump has repeatedly downplayed the threat? Is it because he has insisted coronavirus is nothing more than the flu? Is it because those press conferences make zero attempt to demonstrate how to follow social distancing guidelines? Maybe it's that Trump repeatedly attacks the press? Maybe it's that Trump doesn't urge people to follow guidelines?
