Scarborough: Trump’s Alternate Reality Has Now Killed 150,000 Americans

‘Who knows how many lives could have been saved if Donald Trump had taken this seriously as Joe Biden’


SCARBOROUGH: “When he started to say it was going to go away in April because the weather was going to get warmer. When he mocked people for wearing masks when somebody asked him a question on a mask and he told them to take a mask off, and when the person refused to for the safety of themselves and their family, Donald Trump said, 'Oh, you’re being politically correct.' When he continued to mock masks as somehow being unmanly or for whatever reason. When he said that the virus is going to magically go away and it wasn’t going to be with us in in the fall and that we should open schools in the spring, last spring, I mean, it just — again, it continues. This alternate reality has now killed 150,000 Americans. Who knows how many lives could have been saved if Donald Trump had taken this seriously as Joe Biden at the end of January in a 'USA Today' op-ed — when Joe Biden said, 'We’re not ready for the pandemic. Let your scientists and let your doctors lead this, Mr. President. Let them speak to us, tell us how we can save ourselves, how we can protect our families, how we can protect our senior citizens, how we can protect people with underlying conditions. Let your scientists and doctors talk.' But the president wouldn’t do that.“
