Trump retweets Chuck Woolery rant saying CDC is lying about COVID-19
Former game show host Chuck Woolery is not having a “Love Connection” with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Woolery’s Sunday night Twitter rant about “outrageous lies” surrounding the coronavirus pandemic is going viral — and racking up over 20,000 shares and 50,000-plus likes — thanks to a retweet by President Donald Trump.
“The most outrageous lies are the ones about Covid 19. Everyone is lying,” Woolery, 79, wrote Sunday night on Twitter. “The CDC, Media, Democrats, our Doctors, not all but most, that we are told to trust. I think it’s all about the election and keeping the economy from coming back, which is about the election. I’m sick of it.”
Apparently having caught the POTUS’ attention, two more tweets from the original “Wheel of Fortune” host received presidential endorsements, including Woolery’s opinion on schools reopening during a pandemic.
“There is so much evidence, yes scientific evidence, that schools should open this fall. It’s worldwide and it’s overwhelming. BUT NO,” he tweeted.
Mr. Trump also shared Woolery’s response to a fan — “Very well said.” — who called Congressional Democrats “useless.”
Woolery was a network television mainstay throughout the ’70s and ’80s, as host of many game show series, including “Love Connection” and a live-action version of “Scrabble.”
But, since 2012, he’s transitioned into political commentary — first with his nationally syndicated radio show “Save Us, Chuck Woolery” and, currently, as co-host of the conservative podcast “Blunt Force Truth” with author and entrepreneur Mark Young.
