BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – MSNBC host Joe Scarborough was slammed on social media for falsely claiming that “no doctors” were present at Monday’s White House press briefing on the coronavirus outbreak.
“There is no public benefit to this briefing. The networks should all cut away,” Scarborough tweeted. He apparently overlooked Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House response coordinator who also spoke at the presser. Rather than admit he was wrong, Scarborough doubled down and said, “There is nothing in this briefing that cannot be summed up in three minutes at the end of the press conference. Nothing.”
Congresswoman Maxine Waters took a different approach. “Why aren’t there any black doctors on his team? White doctors know how to cure white diseases, and black doctors know how to cure black diseases. And why aren’t there any witch doctors for for black people that live near the swamps in Louisiana? This is medical racism! How do we know that Trump didn’t create this virus while mixing chemicals at a laboratory after secretly flying into Wuhan, China? I’ll bet he never watches BET or the OWN networks! He probably hates Chinese-Africans! Quarantine and impeach 45!”
