Jennifer Rubin, the left-wing columnist for the Washington Post, claimed that the coronavirus will kill more Republicans in America than Democrats, according to Breitbart.
She made the comments on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” show, claiming, without evidence, that it was the Democrats who “immediately cancelled all of their rallies” and let “their political figures really portray” the disease first, ahead of Republican leaders. She also falsely claimed that President Trump called the coronavirus a “hoax,” saying “this is how they do it at Fox News.”
She also speculated that, if the spread of the virus worsens, “the brainwashing” among Republican voters will be “so strong as to carry on and make excuses for Trump.”
Rubin is considered by some on the Left to be a conservative, but has been one of the most outspoken critics of President Trump since his candidacy in 2016.
