Crenshaw ‘Wrecks’ Bill Maher Over Trump Coronavirus Response; Internet Erupts: Likely ‘Run For President’ One Day

    On Friday night, Texas Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw took HBO's "Real Time" host Bill Maher over claims from the liberal that President Donald Trump and his administration are "passing the buck" when it comes to protecting the American people from the Chinese-originated coronavirus book, or COVID-19.


    Crenshaw described measures Trump has taken since January regarding the virus and highlighted the downplaying COVID by Democrats in the same era, with the same politicians now pointing their fingers at the president for supposedly not taking the pandemic sufficiently seriously.
    Over the weekend the amount headed down Maher's takedown gained steam on social media.

    “Crenshaw climbed Twitter’s trending list, where he remained throughout the weekend,” Market Watch reported. “For the foremost part, he was feeling the love.”

    During the looks, Maher pressed Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL, for defending Trump, whom he accused of getting “pass-the-buck, lie, finger-point, and shirk-responsibility” tendencies. Unfairly tying Trump to COVID deaths, he also suggested Trump’s travel ban from China on January 31 – a ban leading Democrats called “xenophobic” – wasn't strong enough.

    “The reality is about 40,000 people came in after [Trump closed off to travel with China]. These were U.S. citizens and green-card holders and passport holders being repatriated. U.S. citizens. So you've got to form the argument then that we shouldn’t allow them in,” Crenshaw outlined to Maher, Fox News reported. “It sounds to me that you’re fully believing President Trump on this one, and everybody else disagreed with him. And if you’re saying that the travel restriction should are more extreme, then fine. You clearly had the foresight some time past, but nobody else did,” he added. 
    “Your criticism appears to be supported one thing – that Trump was overly optimistic,” the previous SEAL continued. “That’s his style. you'll criticize it, that’s fine, but it’s not connected to the actions that were actually taken.”
    “I provide all of that context as we attempt to basically accuse this man of … he’s being accused of getting blood on his hands,” Crenshaw said. “And context is so important here. If we’re getting to criticize somebody’s actions, we've to try to to it with the facts they knew at the time. So I’m just trying to be fair here. I don’t really care about defending him or his actions. I just care about letting people know the reality. And when people make these accusations, I even have to ask them: is that the goal to form Trump look bad, or is that the goal to urge the truth? Because there are two separate sets of answers for that.”

    The internet was flooded with commentary about Crenshaw, whose name remains to trend on Twitter as of Sunday afternoon.
    “It’s hard seeing Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) not running for president [one] day. Will do any media outlet, which stems from confidence in himself and his worldview. Possesses likability, authenticity, and pragmatism,” said The Hill’s Joe Concha. “Save the tweet.” 
    This @DanCrenshawTX interview is [fire emoji],” wrote Matt Whitlock, senior advisor for the National Republican Senatorial Committee. “He gives perhaps the foremost detailed timeline of the government's response, Congress’ actions, and Democrats inexcusable efforts to politicize every step of the way, delaying lifesaving relief to American families.”
