Conway Decides “Kung Flu” Isn’t Racist After All

The Hill reports:

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday defended President Trump’s repeated use of the term “kung flu” to describe the coronavirus despite previously telling reporters the term was “highly offensive.”

“My reaction is that the president has made very clear that he wants everybody to understand, and I think many Americans do understand, that the virus originated in China,” Conway said Wednesday.

“How do you know that people aren’t anticipating that or not connecting that?” Conway said. “While the president is saying it, he’s also saying this virus came from China.”
