Liberals in media have been pushing a completely false narrative that Trump called the Coronavirus a hoax.
No MSNBC’s Joy Reid is taking that to another level.
Reid suggested on her show this weekend that Trump supporters blindly follow whatever Trump says. Therefore, if they think this is a hoax, their children could infect the kids of others with the Coronavirus.
That’s such a vile thing to imply.
News Busters reports:
President Trump has not called coronavirus a hoax. To the contrary, the President has mobilized a team to combat the spread of the disease. And the administration is offering daily briefings on its efforts.
What Trump has called a hoax is the attempt by Democrats to politicize the disease. Reid unwittingly gave a good example of the phenomenon with her scaremongering this morning.
Here’s the actual transcript:
JOY REID: These people, who believe Trump over facts, over science, over anything, but him. His Twitter feed, that’s the truth to them. These are people you go to work with, that you ride the bus with, they’re the parents of your children’s classmates.
. . .
Trump supporters, who God love ’em, they believe anything that Donald Trump says. So you may have people who are willfully refusing to check that sniffle because they think it’s not true.
ALI VELSHI: It’s a myth that’s meant to undercut Donald Trump.
REID: And they still go to school with your kids.

Reid is still pushing the lie about Trump calling the Coronavirus a hoax on Twitter:
A timely reminder that initially the president of the United States dismissed / downplayed the coronavirus outbreak as a hoax… https://t.co/ULHuJ3kdMT

Our reporters have interviewed people ON CAMERA who say they don't believe coronavirus is real and who call it a hoax by Democrats to hurt Trump. Or they echo Trump in saying it's not so bad. How many people at CPAC or Trump rallies believed this? Why would they take precautions? https://t.co/Jga8pCwW6q
