MULVANEY THREE WEEKS AGO: Americans should ignore media reports about the coronavirus because it is a hoax to bring down Trump
White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney suggested Friday that Americans ignore the media’s coverage of the coronavirus, arguing that journalists are ratcheting up fears to try to hurt President Donald Trump politically.

Mulvaney, who also heads the Office of Management and Budget, also said that there will “probably” be school closures and transportation issues due to the impact of the virus.

“Are you going to see some schools shut down? Probably. May you see impacts on public transportation? Sure,” Mulvaney said as he attempted to assure his audience that the Trump administration was on top of the virus.

“The press was covering their hoax of the day because they thought it would bring down the president,” Mulvaney concluded. “The reason you’re seeing so much attention to [the coronavirus] today is that they think this is going to be what brings down the president. That’s what this is all about.”

Mulvaney said he was asked by a reporter, “What are you going to do today to calm the markets?”

“I’m like, ‘Really what I might do today [to] calm the markets is tell people turn their televisions off for 24 hours.’”

“We sit there and watch the markets and there’s this huge panic and it’s like, why isn’t there this huge panic every single year over flu?” Mulvaney asked rhetorically.

I live in a fairly small conservative town & it's pretty much business as usual. Talk to the people & none of us is worried about catching anything.

No one here has stockpiled TP either. But there were some commie b*st*rds that came to town & bought it all. Someone said Soros paid them all to do it. How else could it happen everywhere at once -overnight really.

So you agree with Mulvaney that COVID-19 is a media hoax to bring down Trump?

I've been saying for a wee bit now that it's not about the virus anymore, it's about the "Orange Man Baaaad, ORANGE MAN BAD!!" Political, basically.
