    We have Trump on tape to Woodward that he knew Feb 7 that the pandemic was deadly, and we also have all his downplay, so it's not surprising.

    Feb 10  “Looks like by April, you know in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away,”     Feb 23  “very much under control,”

    Feb 26  “...when you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done.”Feb 28  concern about coronavirus “is their new hoax”

    Mar 02  “We’re talking about a much smaller range” of deaths than from the flu.

    Mar 04  (to Hannity) “It’s very mild.”

    Mar 10  “And it will go away.  Just stay calm.  It will go away.”

    Misinformation news. Shamefully pandering. This is comical.

    Keep blaming Trump you sad losers.

    There is not one concrete example of the President spreading misinformation in the NYT article or the unpublished and unreviewed 'report' from Cornell. Not a single example of misinformation!

    It's purely bunk reporting. That study will never be published, it's junk. But the media will spread it around like propaganda.

    These people are sick. And those authors should be ashamed

    "the pandemic was manufactured by Democrats" Lol what? this is misinformation who said that?

    "Miracle cures" was never uttered. There is no 'cure' for a virus but there are ways to inhibit the virus, to interfere with virus replication, and to reduce symptoms and increase recovery time.

    It is a 'miracle' however that the WHO was covering for China suppressing information and the WHO was WAY off their initial estimates of 3.4% mortality rate..which led to all the unnecessary panic shutdowns and more child suicides than child COVID deaths.

    one must wonder how many of those articles were published in for-profit outlets that are known to exploit reader emotions (rather than appealing to critical thought)....and routinely do so by promoting controversy rather than by providing actual information.....

    ....if one were interested in that kind of thinking.....right?

    Not shocking at all.  This is the kind of thing we have come to expect from Dear Leader.

    Not what I see.  I don't see the experts getting much of anything right.  I don't even see the kind of agreement from them you are implying.
