Jake Tapper Laughs in Trump Adviser's Face

Jake Tapper had Trump economic adviser Larry Kudlow on his CNN show to discuss the current state of the economy and possible future stimulus packages. The strange thing about this interview was how Kudlow wanted to shift away from economic matters and discuss the virus itself, even though he’s no doctor or expert in infectious diseases. Kudlow said, “we are learning to deal with the virus in a targeted, safe, preventive way,” to which Tapper responded with laughter and a simple, “no we’re not.”

It’s great that Jake Tapper called out this attempt at deception from Larry Kudlow. The Trump administration and campaign have been acting as though the US has rounded the corner on the pandemic (or as Trump says, “rounded the turn”). In reality, cases are trending back upwards and we’re currently average 50,000 new cases a day. Deaths are a lagging indicator and are expected to tick back up over the next two to three weeks as well. Dr. Anthony Fauci says we need to get down to 10,000 new cases a day to get the virus somewhere near “under control.” This administration has proven to be unwilling and unable to execute a strategy on how to get there.
