Early Friday morning, Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for coronavirus.
The news came hours after it was announced that Trump aide Hope Hicks contracted the virus.
For months, Donald Trump has downplayed the severity of this pandemic. Like a petulant child, he has scolded reporters for wearing face masks, and during the first presidential debate, he mocked former Vice President Joe Biden for wearing a mask.
Now, Trump’s lies have come home to roost. See the video below:
The malicious disinformation and lies spewed by Trump are not ok. This is not normal. Our democracy, our lives and our health have been hijacked by Trump, who is now COVID-19 positive and who knowingly exposed countless Americans to the virus.
We must keep our feet on the gas. We must hold Trump accountable to save America.
MeidasTouch released this rapid-response video in record time to track Trump’s atrocious behavior and to deliver a simple, but powerful message:
Be smart. The virus is real. Trump’s lies have consequences.
