Ex-Obama Strategist Bashes Trump For Lying About Coronavirus For His Own Political Gain: 'Are You Kidding Me?!?'


Donald Trump took to Twitter to lash out at the media for reporting the threats of the coronavirus. According to Trump, the media is lying about the virus outbreak just to hurt his economy. This prompted former Obama political strategist David Axelrod to fire back at the president.

Trump tweeted saying:

“Low Ratings Fake News MSDNC (Comcast) & @CNN are doing everything possible to make the Caronavirus look as bad as possible, including panicking markets, if possible. Likewise their incompetent Do Nothing Democrat comrades are all talk, no action. USA in great shape!”

“Are you kidding me?!?” Axelrod wrote in response. “At a time when HIS OWN public health experts just warned of the likelihood of a significant outbreak here, he Tweets THIS?”

He then hammered Trump for putting his own reelection campaign ahead of public health by trying to downplay very real concerns raised by Centers for Disease Control officials about how bad the virus might get.

“The job of POTUS is to protect the American people,” he wrote. “Not to protect HIMSELF from a difficult challenge by denying it exists!”
