D’Souza: Blue States Have Insulted Trump For Years And Now They Expect His Help?

Manxi-W

D’Souza claimed that blue states have insulted Trump for years and now they expect his help?

Far-right conspiracy theorist Dinesh D’Souza told Fox News on Wednesday that the coronavirus outbreaks are mostly in blue states that have long insulted President Donald Trump, suggesting those governors have nerve now asking Trump for help.

According to Media Matters, D’Souza told host Laura Ingraham, “And also remember that a few weeks ago, Jennifer Rubin, the Never Trumper, and others were all putting out the idea that there was so much misinformation being put out by the president, and by Fox News, that we would see spreads of the coronavirus in the red states — Republicans would die. But in fact, interestingly, these spreads are mainly in the blue states.”

“And what I find kind of interesting,” he continued, “is you have these blue state governors and mayors, and they are trying — they're criticizing Trump, but they also have the outstretched hand. They want Trump to intervene.”

“The same guy that they've been calling a racist and a fascist for four years, and now they want the racist and the fascist to step in and help them out. You'd think that if a racist and fascist was the guy they needed, they'd prefer to go it alone.” D’Souza said.

Regardless of which states Americans live in and whether those states are led by Democratic or Republican governors, Trump is the president of them all — with the duty to protect every American citizen.

D’Souza’s suggestion that governors cannot simultaneously criticize the president while expecting him to fulfill his duties of office is absurd, and it is unlikely he presented the same position during President Obama’s tenure, when Republican-controlled states came for help during natural disasters, despite having lobbed their own criticisms at the president.

The spread just hasn't penetrated the less populated states yet. It will. And they have even less hospital resources per person. D'Souza is dead-wrong.

Red states spent eight years insulting President Obama, but he still tried to help their sorry asses. It's called Leadership.

D'Souza is a pseudointellectual hack who has the delusion that he is historian and a scholar.

Mr. D'Souza.
You're indeed an idiot. Trump is President of ALL the states. America is built of many Republicans and Democrats in EVERY state. Just because he's criticized by certain areas of the country doesn't mean their not Americans!

Even our largest blue states have more republicans than most red state have.

The Donald needs to do his job without expecting ANYONE to kiss his ring. Criticisms are also part of the job. We have to pay for his endless number of golfing trips. Now comes the time when tRump can actually save lives. JUST DO YOUR JOB.

I call bullshit, to a certain extent. I agree he has to do his job, but the notion that it’s okay to call names and be nasty is not okay. Can I call you everything but the Son of God, mock your family, wish death upon your child, scoffing at everything you say, taking to heart a]every sarcastic joke and then look to you and say...get a brotha a helping hand. To what extend do I have to learn to keep my mouth shut before asking you for help?

Exactly!! Trump WILL help every state that needs help. It is his JOB, and criticism comes with that job. Obama got criticized to a ridiculous degree by some states, but he STILL HELPED THEM.

YOU are NOT the President. Do you not remember the terrible, racist, beyond disturbing things said to President Obama, but he ALWAYS helped, and never said a word about it. Obama was a real man, while Trump is an insecure, whiny egomaniac who hasn't a generous bone in his malignantly narcissistic body. The President has a job to do, and he better do it, and do it right.

He would be helping the people of the state, not the governor.

However, it's his job no matter who he has to help. If his ego won't let him do his job he should resign.

D'Souza is the same guy who attacked atheists by saying that they're responsible for the biggest massacres in the 20th century. Saying that since they don't value life, atheism is wrong.

Hypocritical when one thinks carefully about what he stated above.

Here's an examination of how dishonest D'Souza is

Who cares what this convict says? He clearly doesn't remember Obama's willingness to go to states whose leaders insulted him, when they needed help. Actually, scratch that. He probably does remember, he just is a lying sycophant who doesn't understand that the POTUS is supposed to be working for ALL Americans, not just his supporters, and is not supposed to be a narcissistic crybaby who's snowflake feelings are the source of all his decisions.

Those blue states that D’Souza is referring to paid taxes (more than the blue states), so they are not asking for handouts. No need to kiss your or Trumps sorry ass to get what they need to survive and that the federal government owes them.

Tell this hack that it's our money. And the Blue States have been subsidizing the Red States throughout our history anyway. Tell, this writer and Trump that States have all types of people whether Trump wins them or not. Give us what belongs to us or we come take it.

It’s nice to know the virus recognizes colors. The entire US is critical of that man. I agree he is a sorry ass who only cares about compliments. That’s why he does any thing. He has flaws that make him the worst of presidents. I don’t respect a liar or anyone that is so self centered. He doesn’t care about Americans and vice verse.

D'Neshdadouchebags rambling aside, It's not Trump's help that they want, it's the Federal Government's help. If anyone is at fault, it's the people that voted for him. 100,000s of people will die because of the choice Republicans made in 2016. Never let them forget it.

Gee, this nasty opinion couldn’t be related to a certain pardon, now would it? Leave it up to Fox News to have a convicted felon on spouting inappropriate Trump support. As Kim said above, Trump needs to do his freaking job without all of the elementary school drama. D’Souza needs to hook up with Blagoyevich and start their own Felons For Trump. Their emblem can be a crumpled empty tube of K-Y Jelly...that’s about how much their opinions are worth...

When you are King you have every right to be vindictive and petty during times of nation crisis or any time. Anyone and everyone should bow down to the chosen one. D'Souza should and probably will get a top cabinet post and at least a one month free membership to Mar A Lago for the month of April.

I expect Trump to do his job unaffected by insults, curses, bad news etc. Trump is not someone who is known for uniting people. He ran for office and was elected, now do your goddamned job or resign you ignorant P.O.S. Trump is hands down the worst President of my lifetime Eisenhower to date... From what I understand the only President that has come as close to unsuitability has to be one of Trumps heroes Andrew Jackson. Ignorant and proud of it.

This is the DUMBEST story on FB today. It’s trump’s JOB to HELP everyone. Being president isn’t a POPULARITY CONTEST. That’s most of the problem in a nutshell. He’s a con businessman, who’s FAILED at everything he’s tried to do except be on a scripted reality television show. He has NO political experience, very little common sense, and he’s not intelligent enough to figure out WHAT to do except play on Twitter and insult people. People are DYING by the hour because he didn’t get in front of a virus experts TOLD him was coming. He’s fired everyone that has the intelligence and education to help in this mess, and surrounded his self with flunkies, yes men and his friends who BOUGHT their positions thru donations to his campaign. WE ARE IN TROUBLE, and anyone too stupid to see that is an idiot.

D'Souza does realize that Blue States are the ones carrying this country with the amount of federal tax dollars? Now it is time for the feds to pay back to those states. I say to those Blue States, if you do not get what you need, with hold federal tax dollars and co opt what you need to take care of your citizens. Let's see how those red states get along without blue state dollars.

When the Feebs outbid the states for necessary equipment and tax the states workers into poverty so trump can cheat at golf at more than a million dollars a round, we have the right to expects repugliscum to do their job.

Exactly the playbook by Trump supporters, followers and media agenda. Finger point and blame. THE PRESIDENT should NOT be some vindictive asshole who picks and chooses help based on voter support or lack of. A leader should not hold grudges, and the media that supports the President shouldn't even be writing such nonsense garbage. And yet, we allow these media to stay on the air.
I don't like it when the left media writes shitty articles, and I don't like it on the right either.
Anyone who supports this D’Souza's idiotic statement should be ashamed. But they won't be.

This is what I call attempted murder. Blue states do have a number of Trump supporters. There are also vulnerable elderly, children, people with compromised immune systems and heart disease. This administration should be held accountable for any deaths caused by their petty cruelty.

This type of attitude has no place in a disaster response. I don't care if they all called him a turd or anything else his job it to facilitate a national emergency response not be a petty ass and want his ego stroked. Do your job ass hat. I may not like the man but if he ended up in my ICU o would wake care of him just like anyone else because my ego, dislike or hurt feeling have no place in doing my job!!!

And who told the pseudo-intellectual man that Donald Trump owns the federal government. Donald Trump was chosen by 48% of Americans for 4 years thinking he was a leader, but even that does not do well. In November he must go. This real estate developer is to blame for what is currently happening in the country.
