NBC and MSNBC legal analyst, former prosecutor, and teacher at George Washington University Glenn Kirschner offers serious doubts about Donald Trump’s diagnosis:
What does Donald Trump have at stake at this moment? Well, we know he’s getting crushed in the polls. We know he’s getting crushed in the court of public opinion as a result of, among other things, calling a white supremacist group to arms during the debate, right? The so-called “Proud Boys” — telling them to stand by and then immediately adding “because somebody’s gotta take care of Antifa”. We know he’s getting crushed financially. The recent NYT reporting showed us that he doesn’t pay any taxes into the United States Treasury. I pay taxes, you pay taxes. Donald Trump doesn’t pay taxes. We also know that Donald Trump has more than three hundred million dollars of personal loans about to come due and he’s BROKE. He’s bankrupt. He can’t pay those loans. We also know that Donald Trump is facing certain prosecution in both the federal courts and the state courts the minute he leaves the Oval Office.
So, is this surprise claim that he’s got the Corona Virus the truth? Or is it a lie?
This is an example where we need an aggressive press digging into the facts of this story. Who performed the tests? What tests were done? Who certified the results?
We know that Donald Trump is a proudly habitual liar. Why should anyone believe him now?
