During a April 26 interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, White House coronavirus task force coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx scolded the media for reporting President Donald Trump’s dangerous suggestion on April 23 that disinfectants could somehow cure COVID-19.
Dr. Brix — whose stunned expression was filmed when Trump made his suggestion — told Tapper that she was bothered, not by Trump’s insane claim, but rather the media’s (accurate) reporting of it:
It bothers me that this is still in the news cycle because I think we’re missing the bigger pieces of what we need to be doing as an American people to protect one another.
Sometimes I worry that we don’t get the information to the American people that they need when we continue to bring up something that was from Thursday night.
