Anonymous Sources Say Hope Hicks Was Frustrated Over “Cavalier Approach To Coronavirus” Or Something

Funny how the same media which says they only use anonymous sources rarely mostly only seem to use them in practice, eh?

Hope Hicks “frustrated with Trump” over “cavalier approach to the virus” after positive test: report

In the wake of President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump testing positive for coronavirus, Gabriel Sherman reports for Vanity Fair that “Trumpworld is gripped by fear and panic” as the news settles in.

Sherman cites a New York Times report that says Trump is exhibiting “coldlike symptoms,” adding that he’s spoken to two sources inside the White House who say Trump is experiencing a cough and a fever. Melania is reportedly asymptomatic.

“‘They are worried about the president because of his age,’ one of the sources said. Sources said Trump will likely want to be seen in public as soon as possible to blunt the narrative that he is sidelined by the virus he’s spent the last six months downplaying. ‘He’s going to want to get out there a lot sooner than people think,’ the former official said. ‘But it will be hard to hide if he’s sick. Also, who will want to be in a room with him?'” Sherman writes, adding that the White House didn’t respond to his request for comment. (snip)

Trump confidant Hope Hicks tested positive before Trump and the first lady and is reportedly experiencing symptoms. Two sources speaking to Sherman said she has had a high fever and a cough and has lost her sense of smell.

“Hicks is said to be frustrated with Trump for taking such a cavalier approach to the virus. She was one of the few West Wing staffers to wear a mask in meetings, which her colleagues chided her for,” Sherman writes, adding that she was “made fun of because she wore a mask,” according to a friend.

“Sources told me Hicks is also upset that news coverage has made it appear that she gave Trump the virus, when in fact no one knows where he got it,” Sherman reports.

Not one source is named, and we’re just supposed to take the word of the mostly Democrat voting media after years of attempting to destroy Trump? They have zero credibility.

BTW, from that NY Times article

Senate Democrats also demanded that Republicans slow the confirmation process for Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, charging that “an already illegitimate process will become a dangerous one.”

Leading Republicans pledged to go “full steam ahead” to confirm Judge Barrett before Election Day. Judge Barrett, who met with Mr. Trump at the White House last weekend, tested negative on Friday.

Well, we’ll see if Senate Republicans get squishy, which is always something to be concerned with.

    Squishy or too many come down with it to be able to vote. Strange it seems just the GOP seems to be getting it.

    Gotta love how anonymous sources can grab headlines without being “fact checked” by the fabulously reliable NYT. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif

    Sources? Those are SO twentieth-century. Fabulists (what used to be called “journalists” don’t need no stinking sources. The might provide inconvenient facts or other such bothersome trivia. They just make things up – MUCH more manageable that way!

    Now, about this “credibility” stuff….

    Chris Christie: I just received word that I am positive for COVID-19.

    Suspiciously, only GOPhers are being attacked by the Coronavirus! And now at least 3 GOPher Senators tested positive, including two on the Judiciary Committee (Tillis and Lee). Senate rules require the Committee to meet in person!!

    Don’t you see it? This all started just after President Trump and the Senate Majority Leader announced they were going forward with seating Ms. Barrett in the Supreme Court!

    Soros, Obama, the Clintons, Fauci, the Fake Media and Xi, knowing that Justice Ginsburg was dying, constructed the virus in Wuhan China and released it in the US. They distracted the GOP by first infecting Blue states, knowing Republicans wouldn’t care about dead Democrats, forcing President Trump to ignore the pandemic allowing the Dems to spread it gradually to Red states. Democratic governors eagerly supported the plot, shutting down state economies. Not surprisingly, almost all foreign countries also shut down their own economies in Commie solidarity with Chinese/DemCom menace. Once the virus was spread across the US the rest was easy. The Fake Media made up polls showing Biden/Harris with large leads nationally and importantly in key battleground states. This maneuver forced the Trump campaign to have in-person campaign events further spreading the virus. Fauci, Big Science and Big Medicine pushed the Mask Meme, leaving President Trump no choice but to denounce Masking.

    The DemChiCom conspiracy pulled the plug on the Justice and set in motion Phase II – infiltrating the administration with virus. A person in the President’s inner circle was paid handsomely to be infected. Once infected they moved unencumbered through the ranks, spreading the virus at the Barrett announcement, on Air Force One, the debate preparation and by contaminating the microphone and lectern at the debate, infecting the President. All to slow or even stop the confirmation of Ms. Barrett.

      Sympathy ploy. We lull you into a false sense of security and then sweep all 60 states.

      Trump fought the mask thing because it’s a crock.

      If that’s the plan, it’s already failed.

      Cocaine Mitch says she’ll be confirmed by November.
