President Donald Trump on Monday retweeted a right-wing game show host’s COVID-19 conspiracy theory that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and doctors are lying to influence the election, presumably against Trump.
Trump also retweeted a months-old post attacking Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert and a member of Trump’s task force. The broadside came one day after multiple news outlets reported that the White House is attempting to discredit Fauci, who has urged people to wear masks and practice social distancing to help reduce the spread of the virus, and he has cautioned states against reopening in defiance of the president.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany denied the report, saying it “couldn’t be further from the truth” and adding that “Dr. Fauci and the president have a good working relationship.”
Chuck Woolery, the 79-year-old former host of “Love Connection” and “Wheel of Fortune,” was already receiving massive clapback on social media for his tweet Sunday night before Trump even got to it.
“The most outrageous lies are the ones about Covid 19. Everyone is lying,” Woolery wrote. “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.”

Then Trump retweeted the post, apparently supporting the TV personality over epidemiologists and other medical experts, including those on his own coronavirus task force. The move put his strategy for coping with the resurging pandemic into stark relief once again.
Florida set a single-day state record of more than 15,000 new cases on Sunday, the Times reported. New York’s high during the initial surge of the pandemic was more than 12,000.
