Video: Fake News Acosta Asks Trump If He Has ‘Investments in Hydroxychloroquine’

Dear Diary: Today I really zinged Drumpf good.

CNN’s fake news king Jim Acosta asked President Trump Wednesday if he had investments in the hydroxychloroquine drug, despite the fact that the claim has been proven completely false by several fact checkers.

‘No, I Don’t. Good Question’ the President deadpan replied as he walked out of the press briefing.

The story originated with leftists online, and graduated to the New York Times this week, which published a story Tuesday reporting that Trump has a small investment in Sanofi, which makes the brand-name Plaquenil.

The implication was that Trump is pushing hydroxychloroquine because he can make money from it.

However, the investment Trump has is so small that even the uber-liberal fact checker Snopes rated the Times story “Mostly False.”

The Daily Caller noted that “Trump’s personal stake in the company is estimated to be as small as $99.”

Trump stands to gain literally hundreds of cents from the investment!

Of course, the media’s approach to anything now is ‘if orange man says it’s good, it must really be bad’.

this is nowhere more apparent than in the way the press questioned Trump over the drug, compared to how they questioned Democratic New York governor Andrew Cuomo:

Attorney General William Barr has noted that ever since President Trump endorsed the use of the anti-malaria drug to treat COVID-19 patients, the media has been on a “jihad” against it:

Acosta, who will no doubt be making an entry in his diary about the day he smashed wide open the Trump/hydroxychloroquine scandal, later appeared on CNN to complain about having to take a coronavirus test in order to be at the briefing:

What a complete clown.

Washington Post Calls Out NBC’s Fake News On Wuhan Lab

When even the Washington Post says it’s bad…

Published

A Washington Post columnist has eviscerated an NBC “investigative” report on the Wuhan Institute of Virology, that did nothing but provide a platform for scientists there to complain they were being made scapegoats over the coronavirus pandemic.

Josh Rogin noted that NBC’s powder puff coverage contained basic factual errors and even mistruths from the scientists interviewed, that received zero pushback from the network.

Rogin continued his analysis, noting that NBC inadvertently revealed that Wang Yanyi, director of the WIV, was bending the truth beyond recognition:

“Yanyi told NBC reporters the U.S. officials visited in March 2018, two months after the first cable was written. The truth is they visited three times, both before and after the Jan. 2018 cable. Did U.S. officials make an entire visit? Not likely..” Rogin wrote.

“That calls into question Wang’s credibility. She also says biosafety was not discussed. Again, calling several U.S. diplomats fabricators? NBC reports that without any pushback.” Rogin added.

The columnist also called out the network for suggesting it couldn’t find any evidence that the coronavirus could have originated there.

“The NBC reporters toured the lab, as if that would tell them anything. What did they expect to find, a piece of paper they forgot to throw out that says “Coronavirus Origin Evidence”? It’s absurd to think that has any probative value.” Rogin urged.

He also noted that NBC falsely suggested that Dr Fauci “discounted the idea that the virus had accidentally escaped from a lab,” and that comments made by disease ecology expert Peter Daszak are questionable given he has a direct conflict of interest, and appears to be warping logic:

“U.S. news organizations must do better than presenting a walk around a lab and an interview with falsehoods in it as telling us anything about the virus.” Rogin asserted.

He also explained why properly investigating the lab matters:

When even the Washington Post calls out fake news, you know it must be bad!

University Of Georgia Tells Students to Consider “Wearing a Face Mask” During Sex

And they say romance is dead.

The University of Georgia has embarrassed itself after publishing a guide on its health website that advised students to consider “wearing a face mask during sex.”

Yes, really.

The document, titled ‘COVID-19 Considerations’, appeared on the University Health Center website but was removed a few days later following a backlash.

“Consider wearing a face mask during sex. Heavy breathing and panting can further the spread of the virus and wearing a mask can reduce the risk,” said the guide, which also told students to “avoid kissing” and “be creative with sexual positions that reduce close face-to-face contact.”

UGA spokesman Greg Trevor acknowledged that the language was removed because the university was ridiculed, but still stood by its accuracy.

“The information was consistent with language that appears on multiple health and medical sites across the country, including the Mayo Clinic. However, when the information was mocked, ridiculed and criticized on social media, we decided to take it down,” he said.

Trevor’s stance is disputed by the University of Maryland, which on its website states that wearing a mask is “not likely to prevent transmission if one of the partners has COVID-19.”

How long before face nappy authoritarians are peeking into people’s bedrooms to ensure total compliance with COVID-19 mask mandates?

Melbourne: Coronavirus Checkpoints to Ensure Workers Allowed to Leave Their Homes

Strict COVID control measures keep track of travelers.

As part of its strict new lockdown law, authorities in Melbourne have set up highway checkpoints at which residents have their papers scrutinized to ensure they’re allowed to leave their homes.

Earlier this month, a “state of disaster” was declared in the state of Victoria, imposing an 8pm to 5am curfew on residents, some of whom have faced instances of police brutality for flouting the rules, including one woman who was put in a chokehold for not wearing a mask outside.

The law is also being enforced via a series of checkpoints to determine if people have a legitimate reason to be traveling.

“My brother sent me this photo yesterday of a checkpoint he had to go through in Melbourne to make sure he had a WORK PERMIT to leave his house. Police and army there,” tweeted Sydney Watson.

“He was stressing because his permit had an error on it and he didn’t know what the consequences would be.”

Last week we also highlighted how woman was left with severe bruising after being manhandled by officers in Melbourne for violating the lockdown.

Police have also been given the power to enter homes without a warrant to carry out compliance spot checks.

Australia’s neighbor New Zealand also just announced new lockdown measures in response to just 4 new coronavirus cases, all of whom are from the same family.

As we previously highlighted, authorities in New York also announced COVID checkpoints in an attempt to catch anyone who flouts their 14 day quarantine order.
