Saying Trump “chose instead to lie to you and lie to your family” after the Woodward revelations that Trump knew early on about the ‘deadly ‘ coronavirus, an angry Joe Scarborough, host of the popular Morning Joe, put the blame for COVID deaths squarely at the President’s feet.
“Now we know: Donald Trump knew the coronavirus was ‘deadly,’ that it was airborne. He knew also that millions of Americans would get sick and many would die. He knew it wasn’t just older people who would be killed by the virus. He knew early on that this would be the greatest crisis America had faced in decades,” Scarborough said.
He went on, “Members of Donald Trump’s staff knew in January that a plague was coming to infect America, that half a million Americans could die, that millions more would likely lose their jobs, that the economy would be ravaged and that those staff members had a responsibility to warn him — and they did — but Donald Trump chose instead to lie to you and to lie to your family and to lie to over 300 million Americans about the storm that was coming to lay upon this land.”
If this doesn’t lose Trump the election, we don’t know what will.
