“If you are spending Thanksgiving alone, it’s Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump’s fault you can’t see your family,” Reich tweeted. “This could have been under control.”
Reich, currently a professor at the University of California at Berkeley, made this ludicrous accusation without any evidence, of course, knowing that the mainstream media would not challenge him to provide any.
No public health experts have made claims similar to Reich. That is because Reich’s statement is a slanderous lie. The Trump administration did everything it could to stem the spread of coronavirus, but Trump has no control over the mostly Democrat-led state governments that are responsible for state healthcare.
