“This is COVID-19, not COVID-1, folks. You would think that people charged with the World Health Organization facts and figures would be on top of that. This is just a pause right now. So there is an investigation, examination to what happened. But people should know the facts.”
– Kelly Anne Conway, Senior Counsel to Donald Trump, regarding the president’s decision to shut down flights to and from China over the COVID-19 pandemic.
There’s a reason why the illness was named COVID-19. This apparently is another one of Conway’s “alternative facts” charges, but one of the longest-serving members of Trump’s White House obviously hasn’t made herself aware of real facts. I must concede I have some sympathy for Kelly Anne. She looks like an aging porn star headed into rehab.
