“Fact-based truth” needed to fight COVID-19

Listen in on this Morning Joe conversation between Joe Scarborough and Mike Barnicle about President Donald Trump not “aggressively” trying to stop the spread of COVID-19 in America, our need for “fact-based truth” from public officials and “total buy in from the American public.” Says Barnicle: “But it’s hard to get total buy in from the American public when the people, the person, asking for that total buy in is Donald Trump who has spent 40 months dividing the country….We’ve all gone back and looked at the talk of the past four, five weeks: ‘Hoaxes, it’s a myth, it’s going to go away, only 15 people have it,’ all of that. We have to fight ourselves and put that in the background because there’s a vehicle to take care of all the lies and all the incompetence that the American public has been dealt. And that vehicle is called an election, and it’s held in November.”
