Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum pushed back on Joe Biden campaign adviser Symone Sanders Wednesday after Sanders accused President Donald Trump of using a "racial slur" by referring to the coronavirus as the "Chinese virus."

MacCallum asked Sanders if it would be a better idea for Joe Biden to suggest people get behind the president rather than attack him. Sanders responded by saying that some of what the president said "was good," but that he "also stood at the podium today and called the coronavirus, COVID-19, what I would suggest is a racial slur."

But MacCallum resisted Sanders' claim, "Why? Why is that? Why would it be to call it a 'Chinese virus' when it originated in China? Why is that a problem?"

Sanders claimed, "It is something that is offensive to many Americans."

"Do you know why it's called MERS?" MacCallum asked.

A flustered Sanders responded, "You tell me, Martha. You brought it up."

MacCallum then educated the Democrat operative: "Because it's called the Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome. Because that's where it originated. So this rabbit-hole of getting into this whole issue of racism I just think is so counter-productive to what we're trying to do here."
