Jim Acosta shared this astonishing fact: "Everybody is going to catch this thing eventually" is the stated position of Donald Trump's White House.
They don't even care about their most ardent supporters and officeholders.
JIM ACOSTA: That's right, wolf. We heard a lot of gaslighting and we experienced maybe some super-spreading. I talked about all these people, hundreds of people sitting side by side in the audience, not wearing masks and a Senior White House official brushed off concerns about lack of social distancing.
This quote might blow you away. "Everybody is going to catch this thing eventually."
Those are the words coming from a Senior White House official about the concerns being raised about this being a possible super spreader event. The president repeatedly whitewashed his record on the virus, saying he was focused on the science and data, making this false statement at an event where people are sitting shoulder to shoulder without wearing masks. The way that this place tomorrow morning, the speech tomorrow morning and what we saw here tonight may not be as important as what we see a couple of weeks from now.
Recall what happened after the president's rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where you had staffers, secret service agents, you had people in that audience coming down with coronavirus. It reminds me of what a White House Task Force, Coronavirus Task Force, told me one time about the president's grasp of this pandemic: "He simply doesn't get it."
