Terry McAuliffe will say or promise anything if that means he can con people into voting for him. Oh, we get it, politicians, in general, do that but Terry?
This guy is special.
And not in a good way.
We suppose we shouldn’t be surprised the bagman for the Clintons is a corrupt, nasty, lying candidate willing to exploit sick children to get elected but still.
His claim was just gross.
So gross in fact The Daily Beast is fact-checking him:
Terry McAuliffe said more than 1,100 kids were hospitalized with COVID. There were 35. https://t.co/OnadR9LVdg

Ouch-ville. Population you, bro.
From The Daily Beast:
Terry McAuliffe—the ex-Virginia governor fighting to get his old job back in next Tuesday’s gubernatorial election—has been repeatedly and dramatically inflating his state’s coronavirus case and hospitalization numbers, according to fact checkers at The Washington Post. The Post’s reporters say they initially raised their eyebrows at McAuliffe’s calculations during a debate at the end of September, when he said there were 8,000 coronavirus cases “yesterday in Virginia,” but official records showed fewer than 2,000 confirmed cases. A week later, on Oct. 7, McAuliffe said 1,142 children were in ICU beds with COVID—when there were just 35 kids in hospitals, never mind intensive care. He then repeated that claim twice in subsequent weeks when, throughout the entire pandemic, Virginia has reported an overall total of 952 hospitalizations in children under 17. A spokesman for the McAuliffe campaign didn’t explain the massive discrepancy when it was raised by the Post.
Didn’t explain the massive discrepancy.
Because of course they didn’t.
Let's face it McAuliffe is a serial liar like Joe Biden. (McAuliffe=Biden ) pic.twitter.com/eOWJ8lPFBQ

We’re not holding our breath since they let him straight-up lie about Glenn Youngkin banning books.
Literally weaponize Covid for political reasons then wonder why nobody trusts them.
