Trying to Show that He is More Warped than His Dad, Don Jr. Claims 1000 Deaths is "Almost Nothing"
Donald Trump Jr. has hinted at a run for president in 2024, and one recent poll of Republicans found him leading former SC governor Nikki Haley and his sister Ivanka, and just behind Vice President Mike Pence. That probably tells you all you need to know about the current state of the Republican Party. It's Donald Trump's party now, and it's likely to stay that way no matter what happens next week.
As election day approaches, Don Jr. is out stumping for his dad's reelection and made an appearance on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle yesterday. He was there to spread the Trump campaign's newest bit of nonsense; the pandemic is waning and the President has everything under control. So, Don Jr. repeatedly claimed last night that coronavirus deaths had dropped to “almost nothing” on a day during which more than 1,000 Americans had died from the virus.
The Daily Beast: "Dismissing the surging number of daily coronavirus cases across the nation, the Trump scion insisted on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle that the CDC was focusing on infections instead of deaths because “the numbers are almost nothing,” adding that “we’ve gotten control” of the virus due to therapeutics. “If you look at my Instagram, it’s gone to almost nothing,” he added. “We’ve gotten a hold of it.”
"On Thursday, the United States logged more than 80,000 new COVID-19 cases, and 1,016 Americans died from the disease."
Even in the age of "alternative facts," it's hard to believe that Americans are going to buy into this particular line of BS.
