In the past year we’ve seen countless examples of Democrats and the media (pardon the redundancy) slamming President Trump for expressing any optimism when it comes to a coronavirus vaccine or the eventual end of the pandemic.

There’s been a tendency to emphasize the bad or scary news in pandemic coverage and undersell the good or hopeful news. That itself has an effect on public health. https://t.co/4Hl9LKKFxs

IT'S ALL SO FUCKING TIRESOME. https://t.co/sloo5xWBLM

Dems and the media couldn’t make it more obvious if they tried.
