Trump says COVID-19 is like “the flu” and Mike Pence believes “smoking doesn't kill”

Doublespeak is language that deliberately obscures, disguises, distorts, or reverses the meaning of words. Doublespeak may take the form of euphemisms, in which case it is primarily meant to make the truth sound more palatable. It may also refer to intentional ambiguity in language or to actual inversions of meaning.


Double-talk is a form of speech in which inappropriate, invented, or nonsense words are used to give the appearance of knowledge and so confuse or amuse the audience.

 

The 1918 Spanish Flu mortality rate was estimated to be 2 to 3 percent by the WHO.
