President Donald Trump shared a tweet from previous game show host Chuck Woolery that said “everyone is lying” about the coronavirus early Monday early morning– including his administration’s own Centers for Illness Control.
” The most outrageous lies are the ones about Covid19 I’m sick of it,” wrote Woolery in the post that was then retweeted by the president.
Trump also retweeted one of Woolery’s tweets that said, “There is so much evidence, yes scientific proof, that schools need to open this fall.
Woolery was apparently referring to data from Europe suggesting that kids are less likely than grownups to transmit the virus to others, which prompted the American Academy of Pediatrics to suggest that schools resume with proper safety precautions.
But even the AAP strolled back its initial recommendation for in-person education this fall. “Science ought to drive decision-making on safely reopening schools,” the AAP said in a modified statement Friday, adding that public health firms must decide “based upon evidence, not politics.”
The retweet came just 2 days after Trump wore a mask in front of press cams for the first time Saturday, lastly sticking to CDC recommendations after months of refusing to wear one publicly while insisting he was doing so independently.
The idea of using a mask in public places, which some states require and the CDC strongly suggests, has actually ended up being a politically polarizing debate in the U.S. despite experts stating it considerably reduces the danger of spreading the infection.
