Kayleigh McEnany Struggles to Defend Trump Claim That COVID ‘Affects Virtually Nobody'
CARLOS BARRIAThe first question White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany fielded during Tuesday's press conference was not about the Supreme Court fight, but rather about the milestone of 200,000 deaths from COVID-19 that the United States has now reached.

CNN's Jim Acosta began by asking: "What do you say to Americans who are outraged over this and blame this administration for so many lives lost in this country?" After McEnany responded by saying that the number of dead Americans could have reached two million by now, Acosta specifically brought up the president's most recent attempt to downplay the severity of the coronavirus.

At his Monday evening rally in Ohio, the president told supporters that the virus "really affects" elderly people with heart problems and basically "nobody" young. "Take your hat off to the young, because they have a hell of an immune system," he says. "But it affects virtually nobody, it's an amazing thing." From there, he pivoted directly to, "Open your schools!"

50,000 Benghazis, 109 Katrinas: U.S. COVID-19 Death in Perspective
Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily BeastThe battle of Gettysburg. The D-Day invasion of Normandy. The September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

These are some of the most harrowing moments of mass death and suffering in American history—nightmares seared indelibly into the national consciousness. And yet they pale in terms of sheer lethality when compared to the novel coronavirus, which has now claimed more than 200,000 lives in the United States in a little over seven months.

For over half of 2020, Americans have sifted through daily reports of those deaths. What began as a trickle of misery out of the Northwest transformed into a flood of hundreds and in some cases thousands of lives lost per day.
