Hillary Clinton appeared on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” last night to promote her upcoming Hulu documentary “Hillary.”

While on the show, she took the opportunity to push the false story that President Donald Trump called the coronavirus a “hoax.”

“I wish I could say I was surprised,” Clinton said when asked how the Trump administration has responded to the coronavirus outbreak.

“This is something that you can’t just insult or pretend is a hoax, despite how hard [President Trump’s] trying.”

“You really have to listen to people who actually know something,” the failed 2016 presidential candidate continued.

“There’s a terrible shortage of testing kits. They need to make sure state and local health departments, governors, mayors, and others, have the resources they need with hospitalization. There’s a lot of work to be done and if he will quit calling it a hoax and actually let the experts do their job, I think that’ll work out better.”

This comes as the media has been lying for days by claiming that Trump called coronavirus a “hoax,” which isn’t what he said at all. Politico was one of the first outlets to push this myth, publishing a story titled “Trump rallies his base to treat coronavirus as a ‘hoax.’”

“President Donald Trump on Friday night tried to cast the global outbreak of the coronavirus as a liberal conspiracy intended to undermine his first term, lumping it alongside impeachment and the Mueller investigation,” reporters Nancy Cook and Matthew Choi wrote.

In reality, Trump never called coronavirus a hoax. Instead, he called the Democrats’ efforts to politicize the virus a hoax.

“‘Hoax’ referring to the action that they take to try and pin this on somebody, because we’ve done such a good job,” Trump explained this week, according to Breitbart News. “The hoax is on them, not—I’m not talking about what’s happening here; I’m talking what they’re doing. That’s the hoax.”

Clinton was also lying when she claimed that the Trump administration is not doing enough to fight coronavirus. Dr. Marc Siegel, professor of medicine at New York University, argued this week that Trump has been doing more to fight coronavirus than previous presidents in his position.

“I’ve been handling these emerging contagions for about 20 years now, and I have to tell you, I’ve never seen one handled better,” said Dr. Siegel.

It’s sad that Clinton is still not over her loss to Trump in the presidential election. One would think that after three years, she would have moved on with her life by now, but that is clearly not the case as she still enjoys speaking out against Trump like it’s her job.

Despite what Clinton and her fellow bitter liberals say, most Americans know that Trump has taken care of us over the past three years in a way that few other presidents would be able to. There’s no reason to doubt that Trump will overcome the coronavirus just like he’s overcome every other challenge as president.

Perhaps Clinton is just mad because, deep down, she knows she could never be as good a president as Trump.
