“It’s on tape Kayleigh”

Postby toucana on September 9th, 2020, 8:58 pm 

Earlier today, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany gave a press briefing in which she attempted to defuse the latest bombshell revelations in Bob Woodward’s new book Rage which claims (inter alia) that president Trump admitted knowing full well that COVID-19 was a dangerous air-borne virus back in early February, and that he had deliberately underplayed this fact in his public messaging “to avoid creating panic”.

Kayleigh McEnany responded to one reporter’s question about these admissions by suggesting that the reporter was merely “referencing something [Trump] allegedly told Bob Woodward” - At which point the reporter replied “It’s on tape Kayleigh”.

Bob Woodward had recorded all 18 of the telephone interviews given to him by president Trump at the beginning of the year (which Trump knew were on record), and he has now made the audio recordings available to both The Washington Post and CNN.

President Trump has effectively confessed to lying to the American people about the gravest public health threat in a generation which has now claimed the lives of 190,649 Americans, and which is on track to kill up to 400,000 people in the USA alone by the end of this year.

Some epidemiologists believe that up to 85% of these deaths could have been prevented if president Trump’s administration had taken appropriate lockdown measures just a fortnight earlier instead of trying to trivialise the problem by falsely suggesting it was only a ‘mild flu’ that would soon go away.

Isn't strange how certain individuals with great power always seem to end up killing lots of people one way or the other.
