The Vindication of President Trump

Posted on | May 26, 2021 | Comments Off on The Vindication of President Trump

Donald Trump took a well-deserved victory lap this week in an interview with Newsmax, among other things pointing out that he was an early proponent of the increasingly accepted theory that the COVID-19 pandemic originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology:

“I said it right at the beginning, that’s where it came from,” Trump said. “I think it was obvious to smart people that’s where it came from. I have no doubt about it. I had no doubt about it.”
He said he was criticized because people didn’t want to “say China,” even though it was “very obvious” to him it came out of Wuhan.
“I said right at the beginning it came out of Wuhan,” he said.
He added that all of the early deaths associated with the virus came out of Wuhan.
“That’s where all the deaths were also,” he said. “When we first heard about this, there were body bags, dead people laying all over Wuhan province.”
Trump had no hard feelings about being criticized for pushing his theory.
“I said it very strongly and I was criticized and now people are agreeing with me so that’s OK,” he said.

What was once dismissed as a fringe “conspiracy theory” turns out to be the most likely explanation? Gosh, what about the election?
