Over the past eight months, CNN has become the go-to network for alarmist coverage of the coronavirus outbreak, but the anti-Trump channel sang a different tune on Saturday as thousands gathered in cities across the country to celebrate Joe Biden’s election victory.
However, the network’s concerns about the possible spread of the virus were virtually non-existent Saturday.

This is all perfectly fine because, as we’ve learned, covid is a politically enlightened virus that spares those with the correct ideological leanings https://t.co/groESOv51h

Wondering how media is going to explain away COVID spikes with no Trump rallies anymore. Excited to find out! https://t.co/rSKA97mFb5
