Democrats Blame President Trump For Coronavirus

Democrats are seizing the opportunity to fear monger and spread panic about the coronavirus.

On Thursday's broadcast of the "CBS Evening News," White House correspondent Paula Reid pushed baseless accusations from Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) that President Trump was lying about the virus.

Reid claimed the president had "ignored questions about the lack of tests for the coronavirus," while ignoring herself the fact that those so-called "questions" were being shouted at him as he crossed the White House lawn to board Marine One, which was running and made it difficult to hear anything.

She then facilitated Murray's claims, playing a clip of the liberal senator saying, "I have the same questions that everybody I represent have is, What is the truth?"

And another, "We need an administration that is capable of not only getting out what is needed in this country when it's needed, but also telling people the honest truth, and that was not happening."
