Bash offered rare praise of President Trump’s handling of the Coronavirus Tuesday; saying the Commander-in-Chief is “being the kind of leader that people need” in times of “crisis and uncertainty.”
“If you look at the big picture, this was remarkable from the President of the United States. This was not partisan, an important thing to note from an American standpoint, from a human standpoint,” said CNN’s Dana Bash.
Dana received backlash for her defending the president.
Bash defended her praise of President Trump on twitter Tuesday following the backlash; telling angry users on Twitter to “take a breath and remember we are all in this together.”
“As I said in the clip you posted below, this is a moment to be non-partisan, American and human – & the TONE the president set at today & yesterday’s PRESSERS were remarkably different and welcomed. That’s a fact. Let’s all take a breath and remember we are all in this together,” posted Bash online.
Here is the clip of @DanaBashCNN praising Trump because he’s now screaming at reporters and going on absolute tantrums like he normally does.
