Another False Narrative About What Trump Said About the Coronavirus Spreads on Twitter

President Trump was heavily criticized by people on social media for something he did not say about the coronavirus during his interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

In video clips that went viral, people on Twitter claimed Trump said it was okay for people with the COVID-19 virus to still go to work. However, that's not what he said. Trump was explaining that because the symptoms of COVID-19 in most people will be mild, they will still go to work without seeing a doctor and get better without realizing they had the virus in the first place.  

The narrative was pushed by Vox's Aaron Rupar, who has a long history of spreading misinformation by inaccurately describing what is being said in video clips, and a Twitter account belonging to Matt Rogers.

While this misinformation virus spread among regular people, it was amplified by verified accounts that belong to people who work in the media, Democratic politicians, and liberal activists.

Subsequent comments on the misleading captions on their videos got thousands of likes and retweets, further spreading the false narrative. In other words, it's just another day where liberals are pushing misinformation on Twitter, despite being able to easily see how it's not true, because "Orange Man Bad."
