This is pretty chilling.

Actually, Trump has, rather recklessly, minimized the threat of COVID-19 at every turn — and he’s sent his lackeys out to do the same. The nearly always wrong Larry Kudlow said a week ago that the U.S. had “contained” the virus “pretty close to airtight.” Needless to say, that’s not remotely true.

Trump himself said a vaccine was right around the corner and that the risk to Americans is “very low.” Neither of those statements is true. In fact, his COVID-19 press conference was a cavalcade of misleading statements and factual errors.

Trump also claimed the virus would probably go away in April “when the heat comes in.”

So why is The Daily Caller being allowed to question the editorial judgment of Politico? You’d have to ask Facebook that.
