Michigan bar owner blames President Trump, rather than his own Governor for his bar’s economic problems, due to Covid19.
Featured in a campaign ad for Presidental hopeful, Joe Biden, bar co-owner, Joe Malcoun says, “For 50 years, The Blind Pig has been open and crowded – but right now it’s an empty room,” he says in the one-minute ad, showing the empty venue. “This is the reality of Trump’s COVID response.”
What The Blind Pig co-owner (and the Biden ad) fail to mention is Mr. Malcoun made contributions to Joe Biden’s campaign AND fully supported Michigan Govenor Gretchen Whitmer’s stay-at-home orders which created his economic downturn in the first place. Plus, running a bar is only his side gig. Malcoun is actually a wealthy tech investor, so, it’s not likely he’s going to be hurting for any money in the near future.
“We don’t know how much longer we can survive not having any revenue. A lot of restaurants, bars that have been mainstays for years will not make it through this. This is Donald Trump’s economy,” he continued. “There’s no plan, you don’t know how to move forward. It makes me so angry. My only hope for my family and this business and my community is that Joe Biden wins this election. That’s the kind of person we need.”
What is Joe Biden promising that would fix his situation except MORE shutdowns and more social distancing? And the Democrats in Congress are the ones sitting on Covid19 relief bills.
Maybe The Blind Pig should have been honest about who shut down his business in the first place. Perhaps he should open his eyes (or get a seeing-eye dog) to understand Blue-State Democrats have been the party of shutting down businesses — not Donald Trump.
