Trump Mocks Rachel Maddow After She Claimed He Was Lying About USNS Comfort

President Trump trolled Rachel Maddow with a video clip of her claiming a Navy hospital ship would not be arriving in New York to aid in the coronavirus fight. rachel maddow comfort

The clip featured a buzzer sound every time Maddow said something which ultimately turned out to be bogus.

The liberal MSNBC host told viewers on March 20th that the USNS Comfort would not be helping anywhere in the country “for weeks.”

The Comfort arrived in New York Harbor just 10 days later.

Accused Trump of Lying

Maddow told viewers that the President’s claim any such ship would be docking in New York is “nonsense.”

It’s unclear where she was getting her information or if she just wanted to delve into conspiracy theories for the sake of making Trump look bad.

“There is no sign that the Navy hospital ships that the president made such a big deal of, the Comfort and the Mercy, there is no sign that they’ll be anywhere on-site, helping out anywhere in the country, for weeks yet,” she argued.

Lies and Conspiracies

Cue the buzzer for that one. Then cue it again …

“The president said, when he announced that those ships would be put into action against the COVID-19 epidemic, he said one of those ships would be operational in New York harbor by next week,” Maddow claimed. “That’s nonsense, it will not be there next week.”

The video clip shared by the President also included joyous news reports of the ship’s arrival.

 

Hope and Solidarity

The USNS Comfort actually arrived in New York Harbor on Monday three weeks ahead of schedule, where it is set to treat non-COVID-19 patients as a means to help relieve the city’s hospital capacity.

“This great ship behind me is a 70,000-ton message of hope and solidarity to the incredible people of New York – a place I know very well, a place I love,” the President said when seeing it off on its journey.

“We’re here for you, we’re fighting for you, and we are with you all the way, and we always will be,” he told New Yorkers.

 

NY Officials Thank the President rachel maddow comfort

Officials in New York had a generally positive reaction to President Trump’s efforts in bringing the ship to their shore.

“If there is ever a time that we need to work together, it is today,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said. “The president is right – this is a war, and what does this nation do when it’s at war? It comes together and it acts as one.”

New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio, whose downplaying of the severity of the crisis for weeks led to his city being the epicenter of the pandemic in America, thanked Trump.

“My message to the president is, thank you, and we need more help,” he told reporters.

Oh, and that other ship that Maddow said wasn’t coming to aid anybody, anywhere for weeks?

The USNS Mercy has already been deployed to Los Angeles, where it is serving a mission similar to that of the Comfort.
