(PresidentialWire.com)- Controversial CNN anchor Brianna Keilar, who is often accused of peddling fake news, received a backlash last week when she blamed a recent spike of COVID-19 infections in the United States on Republicans and Fox News viewers.
Virtually all scientists and even the Democrats at this stage recognize that the spike in infections is a result of the emergence of the Delta variant of the virus, and not a result of Republicans or Fox News viewers…but Keilar didn’t let that stand in the way of a good tweet.
On her social media account, she admitted that while President Joe Biden has a border crisis to deal with, conservatives are “capitalizing” on it by demonizing immigrants as disease spreaders. She did not recognize, of course, that the immigrants are illegal immigrants, or that they are literally spreading disease at the border by arriving infected and being released into American communities.
And then, she moved on to claiming that the problem was unvaccinated Americans…not the infected illegal aliens.
She also claimed, without evidence, that unvaccinated Americans are “disproportionately” Republicans and Fox viewers.
Unvaccinated Americans, disproportionately Republican Fox viewers, are fueling the surge, not migrants who are near 100 percent tested and quarantined if positive. Why not talk about the border crisis without dabbling in BS and racist tropes about immigrants.

At no stage did Keilar recognize that a large number of the Black community across America is also unvaccinated.
Is she going to start blaming COVID infections on Black Americans?
She then claimed that people should talk about the border crisis without “dabbling in BS and racist tropes” about the aliens.
Which is all very well and good, but no matter what anyone ever says about illegal aliens on the border, people like her call it racist anyway…
