The current administration gaslights and peddles lies. Today we respond by talking with experts who deal in facts.
Dr. Eric Feigl-Ding is an epidemiologist with credentials a mile long who’s been Tweeting crucial information about COVID since January. I figured that since we’re seeing record numbers of new infections every day, this was a good day to cut through the lies the administration has been feeding us.
