The White House sends along this quote from Kayleigh McEnany about reporting on the modeling of coronavirus death rates.
“The John Hopkins’ study being pushed around by the media as factual is based on faulty assumptions and is in no way representative of any federal government projections and, as Johns Hopkins stated, should not be taken as a forecast. This “study” considered zero mitigation, meaning it was conducted as though no federal guidelines were in place, no contract tracing, no expansion of testing, while removing all shelter in place protocols laid out in the phased approach of the Opening Up America Again guidelines for individuals with co-morbidities. The media should be more responsible in its reporting and give the full set of information to the American public.”
Also, here’s one more POTUS departure quote, on Venezuela’s claims of a failed plot.
“I just got information. Nothing to do with our government but I just got information on that. Well we’ll find out, we just heard about it. Whatever it is we’ll let you know, but it has nothing to do with our government.”
