MSNBC analyst: Trump committed second-degree murder with handling of coronavirus

Donald Trump has lashed out at ABC's Jonathan Karl

When the subject turned the leak of Trump's interviews with Bob Woodward, Bolton said that this could be the point where the campaign ends. He also told Woodward that "it's not just old people, Bob", which flies in the face of Trump spending weeks pushing for schools to reopen while claiming that "Young people are nearly immune to this disease".

Some of those audio recordings were recently aired on Trevor Noah's show, during a scathing assessment of Trump's criminal mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic.

MSNBC legal analyst Glenn Kirschner feels President Trump committed second-degree murder with his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

On July 21, during Trump's final interview with Woodward, he vented that "the virus has nothing to do with me". Trump was heard telling Woodward about the seriousness of the coronavirus pandemic but explained he wanted to downplay it to avoid widespread panic.

If the USA were to relax mask mandates, social distancing, and other pandemic restrictions, as Trump seems to be promoting, a model from the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation estimates that more than 410,000 people in the us could die from COVID-19 by the end of 2020.

It was then completed in time for a May 2020 release, only to be pushed into 2021 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The next installment of The Fast and the Furious is sure to be out of this world - literally.

Yeah, how dare you not tell everyone I was lying sooner, you monster! But what did he do?

"There are only two elements for second-degree murder. If you don't think the American people can take the truth, you're saying we've got a very serious problem with our system of government". "The first is you caused the death of another", Kirschner said Thursday. "The second element is the intent element", which would "get tricky if we didn't have Trump's incriminating admissions", he continued. Or if he didn't intend to kill, he meant to inflict serious bodily injury.

The New York Times reports that Trump's staggering 18 interviews with Woodward, who was working on his upcoming book about Trump titled "Rage", came from both a desire to spin himself in a positive light and to find validation in having someone from the Washington elite profile him.

Facing repeated questions by reporters during a press briefing at the White House on Thursday, Trump pushed back on claims that he lied to the American public during the early days of the pandemic in the country. "There was no lie here, what we're doing here is leading and we're leading in the proper way". "I have to lead a country".
