Trump Humiliated After Spouting Coronavirus Lies On Fox

During a Wednesday night phone interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity, President Donald Trump revealed just how seemingly completely clueless that he really is about the Coronavirus — even as the death toll climbs. At present, eleven people have died in the U.S. from the disease, but Trump was dismissive of the situation during his conversation with Hannity. His bonkers, baseless claims even included a suggestion that the World Health Organization’s officially reported fatality rate for the virus is — wait for it — fake news. He called the World Health Organization’s reported fatality rate “false” and said he had a hunch that it was lower, all of which he immediately faced steep mockery for.

There’s no apparent evidence whatsoever that the fatality rate is actually around 1 percent as opposed to the 3.4 percent that the World Health Organization has reported. But Trump’s nonsense didn’t end there. He also suggested that those affected with the disease could freely go to work! But that would be dangerous. The Coronavirus is highly transmissible and could be very dangerous for certain vulnerable populations, even if more healthy people make it through the disease just fine.

Trump commented to Hannity:

‘People will have this, and it’s very mild. They get better very rapidly; they don’t even see a doctor — they don’t even call a doctor! You never hear about those people. So you can’t put them down in the category of the overall population in terms of this Corona flu, or virus. We have thousands and hundreds of thousands of people who get better by sitting around and even going to work. Some of em go to work — but they get better!’

No! People who have the virus can’t just freely go to work. Trump wants observers to take his administration’s virus response seriously, but then he goes on television and rambles on with this nonsense.

Journalist Brian Klaas commented:

‘It’s difficult to wrap your head around the fact that the president called into a TV show & made a series of statements during a pandemic directly contradicting public health advice. The mind boggles at how reckless & dangerous that is. People who follow his bad advice could die.’

Yet — here we are.
