Trump amplifies message that “everyone is lying” about coronavirus — including the CDC and doctors (!) — to hurt him politically and damage the economy.
This is, of course, wildly untrue. pic.twitter.com/w0RhNIT39J

President Trump is pushing a ludicrous theory that doctors are purposefully lying about the novel coronavirus pandemic because they want to harm his chances of re-election later this year. Early Monday, Trump retweeted the conservative conspiracy theorist and former game-show host Chuck Woolery as he dismissed medical experts as politically-motivated liars. The incendiary tweet read: “The most outrageous lies are the ones about COVID-19. Everyone is lying. The CDC, Media, Democrats, our Doctors, not all but most, that we are told to trust. I think it’s all about the election and keeping the economy from coming back, which is about the election. I’m sick of it.” Neither Woolery nor Trump explained exactly what aspect of the raging pandemic doctors are supposedly lying about, nor did they provide any evidence to back up the vague, unproven claim.
That is a level of paranoia that almost defies description.
If Trump truly believes this to be true then his mental breakdown has already arrived and he is in the manic portion during which he is the most dangerous to himself and others.
If anybody cared about this man they would be rushing to get him the psychological help that he desperately needs.
Actually, if anybody close to him cared about this country they would be getting him the psychological help that he needs.
