White House adviser (and white nationalist) Stephen Miller’s grandmother has died from the coronavirus this month. Miller’s uncle (son of the grandmother) said that the Trump administration is partly responsible for her death because of their incompetent handling of the pandemic.
In response, the White House issued a statement denying that Miller’s grandmother died from the virus:
This is categorically false, and a disgusting use of so-called journalism when the family deserves privacy to mourn the loss of a loved one. His grandmother did not pass away from COVID.
There’s just one problem. Her death certificate lists the cause of death as “respiratory arrest” caused by “COVID-19”.
When informed of this, the White House doubled down, saying “Again, this is categorically false.”
I mean, who are you going to believe, the President of the United States, or your own lying eyes?
