Trump to Fauci: “I answered this 15 times. You don't have to answer.”

Yesterday’s presser was quite something, what with miracle cures, Trump freaking out as the press starts asking questions about the 70-day delay, and Fauci not telling Trump to stuff it.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is pitching a medicine for COVID-19 sufferers that science has not concluded is effective or safe for their use. “Take it,” he said of the drug.

For people sick with the coronavirus, he said Sunday, “It can help them but it’s not going to hurt them.” In fact, it may or may not help some people, and it may or may not hurt them.

His straight-ahead advocacy of hydroxychloroquine, a malaria drug, is the latest and one of the most consequential examples of Trump and public-health authorities not being on the same page in the pandemic.

His statement came on a weekend when Trump also misrepresented the facts behind his firing of the intelligence community’s inspector general whose handling of a whistleblower complaint led to impeachment proceedings against the president.

Currently there is a disinformation war between left and right on over-counting and under-counting COVID-19.
