CNN’s Cuomo: If Trump ‘Gave a Damn,’ He Would Not Call Covid Cases ‘Harmless’

‘Trump’s strategy of lie, deny, and defy all facts and decency is just as toxic to our society as 99% of Covid-19 cases’

RUSH EXCERPT:

CUOMO: “Thank you, Anderson. I am Chris Cuomo, and welcome to “Prime time.” 90% of Covid cases are harmless, says Trump. Remember, the White House numbers puts our death rate at around 4, 4 plus percent. Is that harmless? To the 130,000 plus dead, to their families, to the tens of thousands who suffered terribly, to all those suffering now, harmless? Maybe if he gave a damn. Maybe the president of the United States were not ignoring and coming up with new ways to reportedly get you to live with a pandemic, maybe then he would know just how stupid that statement is. I will say this. Trump’s strategy of lie, deny, and defy all facts and decency is just as toxic to our society as 99% of Covid-19 cases. But he is being honest about one thing, and it matter, especially now, especially to you, the president’s supporters. Because you also own what he is saying right now. His blatant pitch to bigots. He has no position on whether the confederate flag should be flying in America in the year 2020.”
