‘Fox & Friends’ Slam Facebook and Twitter for Removing Video of Trump’s False Coronavirus Claim

The hosts of Fox & Friends took aim at Facebook and Twitter on Thursday after the social media sites removed a video of President Donald Trump falsely claiming that children are almost immune from Coronavirus. The President made the remarks in an interview with the show on Wednesday.

The Trump campaign claimed that Silicon Valley was biased against him and that he was saying children are less susceptible to the virus. Susceptibility is not the same as immunity, however, and there appears to be no medical agreement on children’s risk of catching the virus.

“Absolutely incredible,” co-host Brian Kilmeade said. “All of those great doctors in Silicon Valley will decide what is right and what is wrong.”

“So much for Mark Zuckerberg saying he wouldn’t be the arbiter of truth,” guest host Pete Hegseth said. “Out the window.”

“As well as who’s running Twitter these days,” Kilmeade said, likely referring to CEO Jack Dorsey.

President Trump has made many false statements about Coronavirus over the course of the pandemic and social media companies have recently attempted to deal with misinformation he’s spread on their platforms – with mixed success.
