Fools of a feather flock together. Game show host Chuck Woolery is spreading conspiracy theory to help Donald Trump and Trump happily retweeted it to his flock.
The most outrageous lies are the ones about Covid 19. Everyone is lying. The CDC, Media, Democrats, our Doctors, not all but most ,that we are told to trust. I think it's all about the election and keeping the economy from coming back, which is about the election. I'm sick of it.

my brother in law died From Covid. My daughter in law works in a Covid unit.
You’re a fucking idiot. There’s a reason you’ve accomplished nothing in your life than be a third tier game show host. The reason? Go back to the first sentence of this paragraph, the answer is there.

Hi Chuck, ER doc here,
We’re not lying. It’s actually really horrible to see people die from COVID19.
And it’s not about the election. It’s actually still about the dying thing. And it’s preventable.
ps the economy only comes back when we manage COVID.
pss I’m also sick of it https://t.co/vg38luygBR

Ah yes, the old "Literally everyone that is typically educated and trustworthy is lying and part of a conspiracy but I know the real truth even though I'm not noteworthy in any capacity!" play…

Wow wouldn’t it be great if this were a fake conspiracy of 100s of thousands, if not millions of health care workers and scientists and sick folks and dead people to hurt Trump rather than…hear me out…a virus 🦠 https://t.co/zcsdsiyiHP https://t.co/pW9yWpu7kh

It’s interesting what makes each of us sick.
For the people I know it’s often #COVID19 itself not the doctors teaching people how to deal with this new reality.
But you keep doing you, Chuck. https://t.co/QqhQm4pp2G

What scares me is the feeling these people give me. I really want to hurt them, and I do not want that feeling! I know I never would but it scares me people from a democracy can be so fucking ignorant and so lazy. It takes FIVE MINUTES to check the validity and see the real world

@chuckwoolery yeah man COVID is all lies. You should totally record a few shows at hospitals in Florida and S Carolina. They should be videos to show your audience what bullshit it is!
Blow it wide open with no Mask!
You have the stones to do it right?
Darwin is ok with it😈

The Centers for Disease Control are lying.
The scientists are lying.
The doctors are lying.
The experts are lying.
EVERYONE IS LYING!
But the hasbeen 80-year-old Love Connection guy? Yeah, HE knows what's going on. You should totally listen to him. https://t.co/fISlv6oara

I guess it’s a question of whether America wants to believe that game show hosts are imbued with special knowledge, and they shall set us free from these wicked conspiracies — or, is the fact that there were 500 confirmed COVID-19 cases in March and now there are over 3,000,000 an indication of a pandemic? And perhaps these people who venerate Trump and Woolery could bear in mind that other countries like Italy or Korea don’t care about our election and they’re fighting the virus, too. Or, are they making up stories because they’re part of a worldwide conspiracy to get Donald Trump as well?
And for Trump’s part, of course it’s all about him. Trump finds himself inconvenienced by having to finally wear a mask and risk smearing his makeup and furious that COVID-19 is there at all to task him. It’s his “invisible enemy” and it’s only killing people to get back at him. These viruses are vengeful, make no mistake. Viruses must be Never Trumpers or Democrats. Where is a good MAGA virus when you need one?
Idiocy reigns while Americans die. How many of us are going to have to pay this steep a price?
