Bill Gates Responds to Fox News Lies About the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in an all hands on deck response from many business owners. Among the most prominent CEO’s looking to help was Bill Gates.

Thanks to the Conservative push to minimize the effect of the pandemic, Gates became a frequent target for Fox News. Gates appeared on Ari Melber‘s MSNBC show on Wednesday and responded to the frequent criticism.

Melber first played a video of Laura Ingraham mocking Gates’ push for contact tracing. When asked for his thoughts, Gates said, “Contact tracing was incredibly beneficial in places like South Korea. We have had hundreds of thousands of people alive today in the U.S. If we had done that. The data, you don’t have to give up your personal data. That’s not a fair way of describing it. Some societies really chose to make that work.”

The billionaire later talked about the criticism levied against both him and Dr. Anthony Fauci. He told Melber:

Yeah, so, both myself and Dr. Fauci have featured in conspiracy theories. One says that Dr. Fauci is trying to make money off of these vaccines and various negative things about me. You know, there, you’re encouraging people not to trust the advice on masks or taking the vaccine. And that could be damaging. It’s a new phenomenon. I don’t know, will it hurt the vaccine uptake, where everyone who takes the vaccine is not just protecting themselves, but reducing their transmission to other people, and allowing society to get back to normal. It’s a completely unexpected phenomenon, and sadly, a lot of it is based on false information.” read more

Sen. Sherrod Brown: While We Were in Lockdown at Capitol, Lindsey Graham was Berating Police Officers For Not Protecting Lawmakers

Lindsey Graham Invites Giuliani to the Senate to spread Russian Propaganda

Republican lawmakers have let Donald Trump get away with pretty much anything over the last 4 years. Their enabling the President, in part, led to the terrorist attack on the US Capitol last week.

And no Republican enabled Trump more than Lindsey Graham. The South Carolina senator, who stood in angry opposition to Trump during the 2016 primaries, later became one of his biggest fans.

When Trump supporters stormed the Capitol last week, though, Graham was looking everywhere for help. And according to Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Graham berated police officers for not doing enough to protect him from Trump‘s mob.

Brown told Ari Melber, “I heard when we — when 175 senators were confined in a room with about 75 staff people, Lindsey Graham with his mask off started screaming at one of the officers, I think it was one of the captains, saying ‘How come you didn’t protect us?’ This is the same Lindsey graham that for five years — or for fours years, he didn’t do it at the beginning, defended and argued for and abetted this president.”

Melber jumped in, “You saw — senator, while you were still in the emergency of it, you saw Senator Graham yelling or berating an officer? What was he getting at?”

In 2016, Donald Trump Said Ted Cruz “Stole” the Iowa Primary and Called for a Do-Over. See How Cruz Reacted Back Then.

Back during the 2016 Republican primary, GOP lawmakers had a much different reaction to Donald Trump. Chris Christie frequently bashed him before becoming an important campaign surrogate.

Lindsey Graham famously tweeted, “If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed…….and we will deserve it.” No the South Carolina senator is one of Trump’s chief sycophants.

But no Republican has made such a turn on Trump as Ted Cruz. After Trump called the Texas senator’s wife ugly and accused his father of being involved in the Kennedy assassination, Cruz has become his chief defender.

It was a different story following the 2016 Iowa Caucuses, which Cruz won. Trump tweeted at the time, “Based on the fraud committed by Senator Ted Cruz during the Iowa Caucus, either a new election should take place or Cruz results nullified.”
