Ali Velshi drills Donald Trump's spokesperson for attempting to spin a conspiracy theory about China and COVID-19. Peter Navarro sounded crazy.
Ali Velshi grills Peter Navarro's conspiracy crap
Rolling Stone reported this rant as follows.
In an obvious attempt to deflect blame from President Trump’s dismal handling of the coronavirus pandemic in America, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro went on an extended rant on Friday, tossing out unproven conspiracy theories as if he were holding court in a QAnon forum.
Navarro, a now-infamous, bomb-throwing advocate of Trump’s more than suggested that China was somehow able to “weaponize” the virus to kill Americans, while at the same time allowing many other countries to contain the spread.
China “spawned the virus,” Navarro said. “They hid the virus. They sent hundreds of thousands of Chinese nationals over here to seed and spread the virus before we knew.”
This prompted MSNBC host Ali Velshi to ask Navarro the obvious: “What are you talking about?”
Navarro repeated himself and tacked on another layer of conspiracy by including the WHO. “They spawned the virus,” he said. “They hid the virus from the world and the possibility of a pandemic behind the shield of the World Health Organization.”
The president’s advisor also claimed, again without providing any proof, that while China was purposely spreading the virus, “they vacuumed up the world’s protective equipment, including two billion masks.”
Later in the interview, Ali Velshi all but called Navarro a liar. We are now entering third world banana republic governance. November 2020 cannot come fast enough.
