Trump continues to spread misinformation about the Trumpvirus

Last week, Trump appeared to act somewhat professional when resuming his Coronavirus pressers, at least what passes for ‘professional’ in Trumpland. Fast forward to this week and Trump’s back to acting the fool and pimping discredited cures for the Trumpvirus.

Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube removed a viral video featuring doctors making false and misleading claims about coronavirus but, not before Trump shared it with his Cult.

The video, published by the right-wing media outlet Breitbart News, featured a group of people wearing white lab coats calling themselves “America’s Frontline Doctors” staging a press conference in front of the US Supreme Court in Washington, DC.

President Trump shared multiple versions of the video with his 84 million Twitter followers Monday night despite the dubious claims running counter to his administration’s own public health experts. Spokespersons for the White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

During the press conference, a speaker who identifies herself as a doctor makes a number of dubious claims, including that “you don’t need masks” to prevent spread of the coronavirus, and that recent studies showing hydroxychloroquine is ineffective for the treatment of Covid-19 are “fake science” sponsored by “fake pharma companies.”
