Trump Economic Advisor Stephen Moore Says Those Who Oppose Coronavirus Safety Protocols Are ‘Modern-Day Rosa Parks’
White House economic adviser Stephen Moore, who has a history of making false claims, told the Washington Post that people — who are rallying against scientific protocols that prevent the spread of the coronavirus — are just like legendary civil rights activist Rosa Parks who opposed Jim Crow laws in the 1960s:
I think there’s a boiling point that has been reached and exceeded. I call these people the modern-day Rosa Parks — they are protesting against injustice and a loss of liberties.
President Donald Trump has publicly encouraged protesters in Michigan, Minnesota and Virginia who are violating stay-at-home orders and social distancing guidelines (set by the Trump administration) in Democratic states.
