MSNBC’s stance on the 2020 election became very clear Wednesday night— the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party doesn’t want there to be one. During an unhinged diatribe, All In host Chris Hayes did the bidding of the Biden campaign by calling for the resignation of President Trump and labeling the administration’s coronavirus response a “disaster.”
Not only did Hayes call for Trump’s resignation, he also insinuated that Vice President Mike Pence should resign as well:
As I said before, the president does not learn, and his incompetence and his negligence is getting Americans killed, which is why every day that goes by without his resignation Americans' health, safety and lives are increasingly threatened. But it is not just him, Vice President Mike Pence, the Head of the Coronavirus Task Force, has been basically doing the same thing.
It is incredibly clear that Hayes and the rest of the leftist hacks at MSNBC do not want there to even be an election this fall. What they really want is both the Republican president and vice president to resign, therefore making Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi the most powerful person in the world. Although this is what the liberal media has believed since the day that Trump took office, they are using the coronavirus pandemic to justify their radical beliefs.
Hayes has proven himself to not root for the American people, he would rather see the country stay in permanent lockdown:
Texas and Florida already re-closed bars. New York postponed the return of indoor dining indefinitely today, and who could blame them? Although, that's terrible for all the people that have jobs in those places. Apple is re-closing thirty of more stores across seven states. And then economic activity pulls back.
It is disturbing that someone with a platform like Hayes is able to just dismiss millions of Americans losing their jobs as “terrible,” then continue to encourage actions that would lead to more Americans without work. Hayes’ rant came right before Trump’s historic job numbers, with 4.8 million jobs added to the economy in June.
Regardless of the facts around the coronavirus pandemic, Hayes put all the blame on Trump:
We are in the midst of an ongoing, deepening impending disaster. We elected Donald Trump to pilot the American plane and he has flown us straight into a mountain.
Hayes will not hold a single Democrat politician, or the Chinese Communist Party, accountable for the coronavirus pandemic. Trump did not cause this pandemic, China did. The areas of this country that have been hit the hardest by this virus are all ran by Democrats, but Hayes will never hold New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, California Governor Gavin Newsom, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti accountable; he will entirely put the blame on Trump. Hayes does not want an election in November, he just wants the Democrats to grab power in any way possible.

MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes
CHRIS HAYES: As I said before, the president does not learn, and his incompetence and his negligence is getting Americans killed, which is why every day that goes by without his resignation Americans' health, safety and lives are increasingly threatened. But it is not just him, Vice President Mike Pence, the Head of the Coronavirus Task Force, has been basically doing the same thing. Two weeks ago, as the virus was spreading across the country, raging through the sun belt, he was bragging about how there was no second wave, which to be fair, technically there still isn't because we never got out of the first wave, and bragging about how daily new cases had stabilized at 20,000. This was the number. Hey, look, 20,000, everybody. And that the media was to blame for fear mongering and trying to scare the American people.
And so we are now at the worst case scenario. The president got bored of the virus and he got tired of lockdowns and he pressured and even bullied governors to reopen prematurely, against his own CDC guidelines, because he wanted people to get out there like warriors, to get the economy restarted so that he could be re-elected. But just like we warned night after night, if you do not take the virus seriously, then you run the risk of neither defeating the pandemic, nor getting the economy back. And that is precisely what is happening right now.
The virus is spreading all over the country, particularly moving into the heart of politically conservative regions with states the president won in 2016 accounting for about 75% of the new cases. Arizona right now looks like it has a chance of rivaling New York. The numbers there are shocking. They reported a record nearly 5,000 new cases in the last 24 hours with over 24% of the tests coming back positive. They also saw a record 88 new deaths, and that is deeply disturbing and frightening, especially since we have learned some very costly lessons about protecting vulnerable populations at this point in the pandemic, and long-term care facilities should have better policies, many of them do. And the median age of people getting infected, in states like Arizona and across the sunbelt, is in fact younger, and there has been a question about whether, hopefully fingers crossed, we could see this spike in cases and not see fatalities go up. And, yet, everyone I have talked to on this program, every public health expert and epidemiologist and doctor has basically said that's not going to happen and now we are seeing it not happen.
But it's not just Arizona. Texas hit over 8,000 today setting another record, more than double the numbers they were seeing two weeks ago. Hospitalizations jumped to nearly 7,000. Today, Florida added over 6,500 cases while Republican Governor Ron DeSantis that said the state would not be going back on reopening. Cases are increasing right now in a total of 38 states, plus Puerto Rico.
There are literally only three states, Maryland, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire, plus the District of Columbia, where cases are decreasing. And guess what is happening? People are pulling back. California is closing bars and stopping indoor dining in 19 counties. Texas and Florida already re-closed bars. New York postponed the return of indoor dining indefinitely today, and who could blame them? Although, that's terrible for all the people that have jobs in those places. Apple is reclosing thirty of more stores across seven states. And then economic activity pulls back. The economy started, quote, moving backwards as rising infection fears spooked customers. Yeah, no kidding. New job posting fell in June. Credit and debit card spending declined. We saw foot traffic to retailers and other businesses decline in large cities across the southern states where infections have spiked. We are in the midst of an ongoing, deepening impending disaster. We elected Donald Trump to pilot the American plane and he has flown us straight into a mountain.
