Coronavirus Panic Does Not Slow Down Enthusiasm for Trump Campaign in Key Battleground State

The Michigan Women for Trump held a successful event on Friday.

The coronavirus panic has not impacted enthusiasm for President Trump’s campaign in the state of Michigan, as evidenced by a large event that took place at the South Lyon Hotel in South Lyon, Mich. on Friday.

The Michigan Trump Republicans hosted the luncheon event to recruit volunteers in the 11th Congressional district as they attempt to oust incumbent Congresswoman Haley Stevens, who has said publicly that she wants to put the NRA out of commission.

“Representative Haley Stevens supports the “do nothing Democrat” agenda and has spoken out against voters’ God-given rights. She is part of a Congress that has done nothing to help citizens,” Michigan Conservative Coalition president Rosanne Ponkowski said in a press release.

Over 80 people attended the event on Friday amidst the coronavirus panic. Some were still in attendance at the luncheon when President Trump announced a state of emergency. Still, attendees are leery of joining in the mass panic that is sweeping the nation, which they feel is being exploited by the Democrat Party and the mainstream media to hurt the President’s re-election chances.

“The Left is using it against Trump, but it’s not affecting the enthusiasm of his supporters. I think the Democrats are trying to use it to stop us from having rallies. I don’t know how we made it through so many crises in the past with all of the panic we are seeing,” said Kathy Kubik, a Republican precinct delegate from Commerce Township, who is skeptical about the impact of the virus.

The event organizers noted that attendees were as energized as ever, with coronavirus fears only emboldening their resolve to get the President re-elected.

“I think the coronavirus has energized Trump supporters even more throughout the state. The only people that we had cancel from attending the event were people that were going through chemotherapy, or people like my Nana who is 90-years-old. They were the only people that cancelled. Everyone else showed up,” said Kelly Powell, one of the volunteers who helped organize the event.

“I think the enthusiasm is higher, and I think we are more mad because the Democrats are hurting our economy and our way of life. Michigan Women for Trump showed up and proved that we are not going to bow down to the hysteria,” she added.

“This is a serious situation to be sure,” said Meshawn Maddock, leader of the 11th Congressional District Republicans, who helped emcee the event, “but the Democrats condemn the President for stopping flights and then condemn him for not doing anything. It’s just another topic for them to complain about.”

“I’m hearing nothing but outrage and passion from our people. They can’t believe the fake news media gets to always dictate events and blame Trump for anything. I don’t think it will have a big impact on the election because it is so far out. We still have a lot of time to remind America how bad the Democrats are,” she added.

This may have been the last large pro-Trump event in Michigan for some time, as Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has ordered a ban on gatherings with 50 or more people via executive order starting on Tuesday, Mar. 17. It will take far more than a Democrat edict to stop the Trump movement in this or any other battleground state from being a political powerhouse in November though.

Obama Reportedly Said Pete Buttigieg Too ‘Gay’ and ‘Short’ to be President

Tell it like it is, Barack!

Former president Barack Hussein Obama reportedly said that former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was too “gay” and too “short” to be a serious presidential contender during the midst of the 2020 presidential race.

Buttigieg, who ran for president in 2020 and surprisingly won the Iowa caucus, is now the Transportation Secretary under President-imposed Joe Biden. He is considered a rising star in the Democrat Party due to his homosexual lifestyle, which includes being gay married to a husband, but Obama is apparently a doubter.

Obama reportedly made his remarks while addressing a group of black Democrat donors in Oct. 2019 as he was attempting to exert his influence over the process. The revelation comes from a new book authored by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen titled, Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency.

At the time, Obama was apparently supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president. The excerpt from the book, which includes various pot shots made by Obama toward Buttigieg, reads as follows:

When he was asked to return to the original question on his advice, Obama said he liked Buttigieg, a rising talent who’d worked on his own campaign. But despite his affinity for the South Bend mayor, he rattled off a list of reasons why Buttigieg couldn’t win. 

“He’s thirty- eight,” Obama said, pausing for dramatic effect, “but he looks thirty.” The audience laughed. Obama was on a roll, using the tone of light ridicule he some-times pointed at himself — ” big ears” and “a funny name,” he’d said so many times before. Now, it was directed at Buttigieg. “He’s the mayor of a small town,” the former president continued. “He’s gay,” Obama said, “and he’s short.” More laughter. 

Only months earlier, Buttigieg had sat in Obama’s postpresidential office in Washington seeking counsel on how to maintain equanimity in the face of homophobia on the campaign trail. Now, behind his back, Obama was riffing on him to some of the wealthiest Black men in America at a time when Buttigieg had been dubbed “Mayo Pete” by critics who believed he couldn’t connect with African American voters.

It goes without saying that any conservative who made similar remarks would be pilloried by the fake news media. Obama will get a pass, although the comments may make the former president’s relationship with the former mayor strained as Buttigieg climbs up the political ladder undeservedly due solely to identity politics.
