People Think Mnuchin Accidentally Said Trump Admin’s Most Honest Thing About COVID-19

“People think Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s slip of the tongue on Friday could be the most honest thing ever said by someone in President Donald Trump’s administration. During a telephone interview for CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” Mnuchin said “we’re working on mass distribution of the virus.” He presumably meant to say the Trump White House was working on the mass distribution of a vaccine to combat the spread of COVID-19. Check out the clip here: \”We’re working on mass distribution of the virus.\” — Treasury Sec. Steve Mnuchin, who we hope is working on mass distribution of the ~vaccine~ and not the virus. pic.twitter.com/DqaTC1ZTmD— The Recount (@therecount) November 20, 2020 But folks on Twitter thought it was a Freudian slip, seeing how Trump’s mishandling of the pandemic has allowed the coronavirus to ravage the country, killing more than 250,000 Americans to date. Trump intentionally misled citizens for months by downplaying the threat of the contagion in public, while in private acknowledging its dangers. The outgoing president also ignored his own government’s advice on how to mitigate its spread, hosted crowded campaign rallies for maskless supporters and ended up being hospitalized for three days after contracting it himself. I mean they are working on mass distribution of the virus. https://t.co/fXfr6AnAph— Kendra \”Gloom is My Beat\” Pierre-Louis (@KendraWrites) November 20, 2020 When trump says \”I’ve been loyal to the special interests\” and Steve Mnuchin says \”we’re working on mass distribution of the virus,\” those aren’t Freudian slips.Those are FACTS.— BrooklynDad_Defiant!

It’s the worst in the world, largely because of their anti-science attitude.— Jeanthejust (@Jeanthejust) November 20, 2020 Steve Mnuchin just said \”… we’re working on mass distribution of the virus.\”Quite possibly the most honest thing ever said by the Trump administration.— Rob Szczerba (@RJSzczerba) November 20, 2020 They already did the mass distribution of the virus part.— Slade (@Slade) November 20, 2020 I’d say they’ve got that whole \”mass distribution of the virus\” thing pretty much down to a science (no pun intended).— Edna K – Deep State Sharpie™ Inspector (@EdnaK_) November 20, 2020 Actually, they do seem to be working on mass distribution of the virus…— Jamie Schler (@lifesafeast) November 20, 2020 No, he didn’t misspeak, they have done everything possible to enable mass distribution of the virus. The incoming administration will work to effectively mass distribute the vaccine.— Ready to Build Back Better (@TLee_is_me) November 20, 2020 \”We’re working on mass distribution of the virus.\” You have to admit that they’re doing a wonderful job…— diego bravo (@diegobravo67) November 20, 2020 Sadly this is an accurate statement https://t.co/hTfRAP2Lkd— March For Science 😷 (@MarchForScience) November 20, 2020 They have already succeeded in mass distribution of the virus, no need for more work on that front.— Kevin Gromley 🇺🇸 (@KevinGromley) November 20, 2020 No one paying attention thinks @stevenmnuchin1 was misspeaking when he said, \”We’re working on mass distribution of the virus.\” That’s been the Trump/GOP plan from day one: kill off as many people as possible and tank the economy so they can swoop in and get even richer. pic.twitter.com/tznN7L2P3S— Johnny Akzam (@JohnnyAkzam) November 20, 2020 Well, they are doing an absolutely amazing job at that. https://t.co/7r4dxFOnvc pic.twitter.com/ms4yebmCSo— Chris O’Coin (@OCOIN) November 20, 2020
