Despite Trump’s dubious claims

The Guardian Live reports:

The executive director of the World Health Organization reiterated that the group believes coronavirus came about naturally, despite Trump’s dubious claims that he has seen evidence it was created in a Chinese government lab.

“Dubious claims” is too polite. “Stupid reckless lies” is closer, but doesn’t capture all that’s wrong with his habit of making shit up and throwing it at people who irritate him.

Just yesterday, Trump claimed he had seen evidence that coronavirus was made in a lab in China’s Wuhan region, which saw the first outbreak of the virus. Asked what evidence he had seen, Trump said, “I can’t tell you that. I’m not allowed to tell you that.”

More lies.

The president’s comments came hours after the office of the director of national intelligence said in a statement that intelligence officials “concurs with the wide scientific consensus that the Covid-19 virus was not manmade or genetically modified”.

Naturally. He thinks he has every right to lie to us, and we have zero right to object or contradict.
