CNN Sums Up Donald Trump’s Lack Of Scientific Credentials With 1 Stinging Graphic
On Thursday’s broadcast of “New Day,” host John Berman compared Trump’s medical qualifications with those of Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The left-hand side of CNN’s graphic showed Redfield’s extensive credentials — from his degree from Georgetown University to his 20 years serving in the U.S. Army Medical Corps.
On the right appeared Trump’s sole medical-related achievement — that his uncle, John Trump, was a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
“He also lies about everything from crowd sizes to injecting disinfectant, so there’s that,” added Berman.
JUST NOW: “Dr. Redfield has a medical degree from Georgetown. He’s a professor at the University of Maryland, he served on an advisory counsel on HIV/AIDS, he’s been CDC director since 2018. As for Donald Trump, his uncle taught at M.I.T.”@NewDaypic.twitter.com/wQ5nnA18BO
