Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh raised eyebrows this Monday when he claimed that it looks like the "coronavirus is being weaponized as yet another element to bring down Donald Trump," adding that the ""truth" about the coronavirus is that it's the "common cold."

Limbaugh went on to slam the media for overhyping the virus in an effort to “an effort to get Trump” and even repeated a rumor that the virus originated in a Chinese biological weapons lab. While Limbaugh's initial comments were likely meant to critique what he sees as the media's bias against President Trump, others suggested he was trying to disseminate a conspiracy theory that the virus itself is a ploy to undermine Trump's presidency.
