MSNBC’s Morning Joe rips Rand Paul’s COVID-19 lies: He’s ‘a guy that goes around calling himself a doctor’

Published

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough bashed Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) for spreading misinformation about the coronavirus he caught himself — and continued showing up for work at the Capitol.

The first senator to test positive for COVID-19 clashed Wednesday with Dr. Anthony Fauci over the pandemic response and herd immunity, and the “Morning Joe” host mocked the Kentucky Republican, who’s an ophthalmologist.

“It really is incredible that a guy that goes around calling himself a doctor has spread more misinformation,” Scarborough said. “By the way, I’ve got to say, he is first among many who have been competing in that chamber as Republicans to spread the most misinformation that could kill people.”

“Here’s a guy, yeah, who had it, knew he had been tested for it, was spreading it around before he got his test results back,” Scarborough added, “and now is talking about New York having herd immunity when it’s only 22 percent, as Dr. Anthony Fauci said, and we find out yesterday only 10 percent of Americans, from what our doctors and what Trump’s own administration has been able to figure out — only 10 percent of Americans have so far been infected with the coronavirus and we have 200,000 deaths. Add that up, multiply that out, we’re in big trouble if people listen to Rand Paul and other conspiracy theorists like Rand Paul instead of people like Dr. Fauci.”

Clark County Registrar of Voters Joseph Gloria has had three decades of election experience in Nevada, but had never seen a "perfect storm," as he called it, like this before. With all hands on deck for this election cycle, Gloria helped put together an entire mail-in voting system in less than 90 days to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’m as comfortable as I can be because I have an excellent staff,” Gloria said. “We learned some things in the primary and are feeling good about this cycle, but unfortunately we have people at the national level who are encouraging people to do things that disrupt the polling place and make it a challenge for us to process votes.”

Watch Kamala Harris laugh out loud when 60 Minutes asks her if Trump is racist

Published

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) laughed when asked if President Donald Trump was racist during a 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday evening on CBS.

"Do you think the president is racist?" Nora O'Donnell asked.

"Yes, I do," Harris replied, with a laugh. "Yeah, I do."

"You can look at a pattern that goes back to him questioning the identity of the first Black president of the United States," she said, referring to the racist "birther" conspiracy theory he pushed against Barack Obama.

"You can look at Charlottesville, when there were peaceful protesters and on the other side neo-Nazis and he talks about fine people on either side," she continued. "Calling Mexicans rapists and criminals? His first order of business was to institute a Muslim ban?"
