“Thank you for your wonderful reviews @ALPHABET News last night! “President Trump tweeted in the morning after an event at City Hall with George Stefanopoulos that Laura Ingraham described as “ambush“
Fox News host Sandra Smith seemed to take a different view when she spoke with White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday and repeatedly blamed her on several occasions in which Trump appeared to be hurting his own case. despite what you may have heard him say Anger author Bob Woodward– actually “raises” the coronavirus virus pandemic.
The anchor began with Trump claiming that the “herd mentality” would make the virus “disappear”, even without a vaccine. “Does the president do it himself with these predictions or do the medical experts who advise him agree with these predictions?” Smith asked.
Clearly ignoring the president’s obvious mistake, McEnany told Smith: “Well, the term herd immunity is a medical term, which means that when you have a certain percentage of the population you have antibodies, you have immunity in the herd. And it can be done through a vaccine or through a previous illness to develop antibodies. He repeated, “It is a medical term.”
Then came Trump’s rejection of the masks. “A lot of people do not want to wear masks,” he told City Hall. “A lot of people think masks are not good.” When Stefanopoulos asked who these people were, the president replied: “Waiters”.
“Doesn’t that just give critics more room to criticize the president for opposing science?” Smith asked, pausing to become one of those “critics.” “Science, Dr. Fauci and others say that using a mask is a good thing to protect against the spread of this virus.”
In response, McEnany cited comments made by Dr. Anthony Fauci in March about the relative effectiveness of mask use. But as Smith pointed out, medical consensus has evolved since then as scientists have learned more about how the virus spreads.
“I think the point, however, is that Dr. Fauci today says that using a mask is good,” Smith said. “And could not this mistakenly lead the public to believe that the president is saying something that is not good to wear a mask, especially a waiter in restaurants as restaurants try to reopen across the country?”
Without losing pace, McEnany said, “No,” because Trump described the mask as “patriotic” and “did it himself” sometimes in public. “It will encourage it, but it will also have unintended consequences,” he added.
