Some Republicans remain skeptical of the severity of the coronavirus pandemic - The Washington Post

my notes ( ? )

Rep. Devin Nunes ... leading ally of President Trump, dismissed concerns about the coronavirus pandemic... Bernard B. Kerik, a Trump supporter ... tweeted that “this hysteria is being created to destabilize the country, and destroy” Trump....

from Italy... Newt Gingrich offered a different perspective... Inside the Republican Party... a deep divide...

the American right... under Trump, moving from a bloc of small-government advocates to a grievance coalition highly skeptical of government, science, the news and federal warnings... conspiratorial unrest is particularly acute within right-wing media...

But conservatives and Republicans now face an undeniable reality... Trump has suddenly and markedly recalibrated ... A turning point ... Fox News host Tucker Carlson... said ... “People you trust ... have spent weeks minimizing what is clearly a very serious problem"...

right-wing clamor... blamed China ... define the virus as “Chinese” ... Americans with Chinese heritage face xenophobia ... 40 percent of Republicans sensing “the worst is yet to come” compared to 79 percent of Democrats...

“Facts matter,” Gingrich said... what happened in Italy ... cut through and became real.”
