MSNBC host Rachel Maddow urged television networks not to air White House updates on the coronavirus outbreak, claiming “misinformation” from President Trump will “cost lives.”

“I know we ought to be getting used to this kind of thing by now, but I’m not,” Maddow began Friday night. “President Trump today, again, just flat-out wrong in public about this malaria drug that has gotten stuck in his mind, quite some distance from the facts.”

The liberal primetime host was referring to Trump’s claim Friday that the drug they’re hoping to use against the coronavirus is “effective,” but Dr. Anthony Fauci of the White House task force quickly walked back the claim, saying it had not gone through a clinical trial and how the FDA previously stated that the drug had not been approved to combat the coronavirus.
