Kellyanne Conway Criticizes WHO With Bizarre ‘Covid-1’ Attack Line
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway criticized the World Health Organization on Wednesday morning while misleadingly quipping that COVID-19 refers to the number of times the novel coronavirus has appeared rather than the year it was discovered.
A day after President Donald Trump announced that he was ordering his administration to halt funding to WHO while accusing the organization of causing deaths by “covering up the spread of the coronavirus,” Conway appeared on the president’s favorite morning show to back Trump’s actions.
After Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy noted that the president wants to suspend payments to the WHO for apparently peddling Chinese disinformation on the virus, Conway blasted the international group for being dishonest early on about the origins of the virus.
“So this is about transparency and accountability because we have been so hard hit in this country and we were listening to the health professionals around the world,” she huffed.
