As Twitchy readers know, Rachel Maddow’s track record when covering Trump is seriously not good. We’ve honestly lost track ourselves of the mistakes she’s reported or claimed about the president in the last four years. And now she’s sharing a ‘fact-check’ from CNN to dunk on him?
Girl (we think?) please.
"Trump again touts unproven drugs for coronavirus"https://t.co/ryuxv8LA0J

From CNN: (sorry!)
Trump’s over-the-top optimism has been tamped down by the medical professionals on the White House task force handling the pandemic. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top public health official on infectious diseases, said the proof is only anecdotal. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar was similarly careful with his language on Monday, and referred to the drugs as “potential Covid-19 treatments.”
Trump has repeatedly touted the drugs in recent weeks, even though there haven’t been any clinical trials in humans proving that they work for coronavirus. Earlier this month, Trump tweeted that the drugs “have a real chance to be one of the biggest game-changers in the history of medicine.”
How dare the president be positive! The nerve.

Gosh, we didn’t see these ‘facts’ in CNN’s ‘fact-check’.
You mean the one with an extremely high rate of success? Is that the one you mean?

Yes, that’s what she means.
You promoted a false Russian collusion narrative for over two years, you have no credibility.

She also claimed they couldn’t get Mercy to NYC in a week.
She was wrong.
We’re still waiting for her to be right about … well, anything.

The FDA seems to approve. I’m sorry this one didn’t work out for you either. #EnemyOfThePeople
