MSNBC host Joe Scarborough was slammed on social media for falsely claiming that “no doctors” were present at Monday’s White House press briefing on the coronavirus outbreak.
Scarborough was among many media personalities on Twitter who quickly noticed that Dr. Anthony Fauci, a prominent figure in the White House’s coronavirus task force, was missing from the briefing. The liberal TV personality quickly concluded that the briefing wasn’t necessary.
“There is no public benefit to this briefing. The networks should all cut away,” Scarborough tweeted. “Bland pronouncements, the repeating of catch phrases daily, bad medical advice. No science, no doctors, no Fauci. Just Trump’s Roy Cohn.” . . .
“Dr Birx is right next to him,” National Republican Senatorial Committee senior adviser Matt Whitlock told Scarborough.
“Are you dumb or just a liar?” The Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra reacted. “Dr. Deborah Birx spoke and the press conference is not over.”
Dr Birx is right next to him.

Dr. Deborah Brix — the response coordinator for the White House Coronavirus Task Force — is standing directly behind him and has spoken multiple times. What even is this tweet? https://t.co/6EdSQSUcGs
