Trump Calls CNN “Dumb Bastards” For Reporting On Pandemic: “People Are Tired Of It And Not Buying It”

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Monday mocked CNN for covering the ongoing coronavirus pandemic as he rallied hundreds of supporters, many of them not wearing masks, in Arizona.

“They’re getting tired of the pandemic, aren’t they,” Trump told a crowd of hundreds of unmasked supporters in Prescott. “You turn on CNN, that’s all they cover. Covid, Covid, pandemic, Covid, Covid, Covid… You know why? They’re trying to talk everybody out of voting. People aren’t buying it, CNN. You dumb bastards.”

Trump’s rally remarks marked the second time of the day that he suggested focus on the pandemic was overblown because people had grown tired of it.
