Marco Rubio: U.S. Pandemic Delights Bill Bramhall

Daily News editorial cartoonist Bill Bramhall is among the journalists
Florida Senator Marco Rubio is accusing of delighting in the current coronavirus pandemic.

From Marco Rubio’s Twitter account:

“Some in our media can’t contain their glee & delight in reporting that the U.S. has more #CoronaVirus cases than #China

Beyond being grotesque,its bad journalism”


A later tweet revealed that Bill was one of the media who couldn’t “contain their glee.”

#China’s communist party doesn’t even have to pay for these. They get it for free!


The Columbia Basin Herald carries the AP story.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, pressed to identify media figures that he said expressed “glee” at Americans getting coronavirus, has cited an editorial cartoonist, a magazine writer, an online tech publication and an online editor.

Cartoonist Bill Bramhall of the New York Daily News drew Rubio’s ire for a weekend drawing that showed a graph of U.S. coronavirus cases rising while a man in a red MAGA hat chants, “USA, USA, USA.”

…and the point lands somewhere about 10 feet shy of Mr. Rubio’s head.

Nobody is delighting in it – we are all at risk because of it, including Bill Bramhall.

But even if someone IS delighting in it, that doesn’t make your failures acceptable. It’s completely irrelevant to the incompetence and fool-hardiness that led to this.
