Trump Rips '60 Minutes' and Vaccine Whistleblower for Criticism of Coronavirus Response

Path 27

President Donald Trump is expressing his displeasure with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” and former Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) director, Dr. Rick Bright.

On Sunday evening, Bright appeared the long-running prime-time show where he was interviewed by news anchor Norah O’Donnell.

Following the interview, Trump retaliated with a barrage of fiery tweets. Trump criticized the interview saying the network interviewed a “fake whistleblower.

Rating O’Donnell as a “third place anchor,” the president also accused her and CBS of “doing everything in their power to demean our Country, much to the benefit of the Radical Left Democrats.”

“Tonight they put on yet another Fake ‘Whistleblower’, a disgruntled employee who supports Dems, fabricates stories [and] spews lies,” Trump tweeted.

He continued,”[60 Minutes] report was incorrect, which they couldn’t care less about. Fake News! I don’t know this guy, never met him, but don’t like what I see. How can a creep like this show up to work tomorrow & report to[Secretary Azar] , his boss, after trashing him on T.V.?…”

The president called on Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) to further investigate and challenged CBS executive Shari Redstone to evaluate her “poorly performing gang.”

Despite Trump’s criticism, Bright has maintained his stance. During his appearance on “60 Minutes” he reiterated his sentiments on hydroxychloroquine.
