CNN has become one of the chief vectors of disinformation.
The network has decided to rail against Donald Trump in lieu of covering hard news.
Now CNN is floating one disgusting Trump conspiracy about the coronavirus.
When Donald Trump announced he had contracted COVID-19last Thursday, the Democrats didn’t know how to respond.
They couldn’t decide if they wanted to mock him or accuse him of faking his diagnosis, so they did both.
CNN added to the media’s malfeasance and speculated that Trump and his medical team werehiding information about the virus. CNN medical analyst Dr. Sanjay Gupta appeared with Jake Tapper and insinuated that something sinister was afoot with Trump and his doctors.
“Well you know I’d have to say that they are hiding things, Jake. I mean, I hate to say it…If he required oxygen, that definitely indicates that there was some impacts, significant impact on his lungs, and that puts him on a different trajectory,” Gupta stated in response to the health update given by Trump’s doctor, Sean Conley.
While Trump had been on oxygen previously, hewas in good health at the timeConley gave the press conference.
But this isn’t the first time Gupta has explored crackpot theories on the air.Dr. Gupta recently said the Trump administrationhad been withholding coronavirus testing despite mountains of evidence to the contrary.
As the media speculation ran rampant, Trump announced that he had returned to the White House and was feeling well.

Trump remains a cheerleader for the country as he promotes therapeutics that mitigate the damage of the coronavirus.
But Dr. Gupta argued, “[It’s] pretty obvious he should stay in the hospital…This is the sort of illness we know people can do sort of be doing okay for a period of time. He has shown us based on his low oxygenation levels it has done negative things to his lungs…I don’t think this is a medical decision. We’ll see what the doctors say…I think this is his decision and basically him saying, ‘I’m going to do this.’”
Not only is Gupta commenting on Trump’s medical condition without treating him, he’s saying Trump’s doctors were not involved in his decision to leave Walter Reed.
Dr. Conley crushed that narrative and said, “He’s met or exceeded all standard hospital discharge criteria…Though he may not entirely be out of the woods yet, the team and I agree that all our evaluations, and most importantly his clinical status, support the president’s safe return home, where he’ll be surrounded by world-class medical care 24/7.”
So much for CNN’s medical experts.
