Former President Donald Trump issued a tweet-like statement to the “Desk” section of his website on Tuesday, basically saying ‘I told you so’ to those who previously downplayed his take on the origin of the Chinese coronavirus and are now reporting that the “lab leak theory” could be a possibility and should be investigated.
“Now everybody is agreeing that I was right when I very early on called Wuhan as the source of COVID-19, sometimes referred to as the China Virus,” Trump wrote. “To me it was obvious from the beginning but I was badly criticized, as usual. Now they are all saying “He was right.” Thank you!”
The ironic part of all of this is that both the New York Times and Washington Post are now blaming Trump for not “initially finding Wuhan lab theory credible,” according to Fox News.
One of the New York Times partisan hacks, Maggie Haberman, told CNN — go figure — that while Trump and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo asserted that “they’ve seen evidence that [COVID-19] was formed in a lab,” they made the pandemic “instantly political” by not releasing evidence to support their comments.

Right, because it totally wasn’t the media and leftist politicians — as well as a famous “doctor” that shall remain nameless — that made every aspect of the pandemic political.
Trump could hypothetically be 1000 percent correct about everything that caused the virus to affect the rest of the world, and the left will never give him credit. As evidenced above, they’ll actually blame him for not doing more.
