Dr. Nicole Saphier was asked Monday morning if President Donald Trump’s just-announced campaign rally in New Hampshire on Saturday will be “safe” to attend.
She didn’t quite answer the question, but called the decision to move the re-election rally outdoors “great messaging.”
“It’s great messaging to be moving these rallies outdoors,” Dr. Saphier, who is not a virologist or immunologist, but a radiologist, told Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt. “Virus transmission is markedly decreased when you move outside.”
President Trump is a fan of the doctor.
Great job being done by Dr. Nicole Saphier on @FoxNews!

“Great messaging, great idea, move outside, give out hand sanitizer, encourage mask-wearing if you can’t maintain 6 feet. That being said, Ainsley, New Hampshire is one of the lowest percent positive cases, and if you have a lot of people traveling there it is possible that they could be – that the interstate travel in itself may be promulgating some of the virus transmission and the spread.”
Saphier herself didn’t encourage mask-wearing, and didn’t mention masks again.
She concluded by urging people to “stay vigilant,” and “pretend that you yourself have the virus, everyone around you does,” and asked attendees to “maintain social distancing and hand hygiene.”
Studies prove mask-wearing is the greatest action people can take to prevent the spread of the virus when not alone.
Dr. Saphier clearly is not a fan of masks.
Just three days ago she shred her feelings about masks on Twitter, defiantly insisting, “I refuse to accept wearing a mask is the new normal; this is TEMPORARY.”
In her typo-laden tweet she appeared to call wearing one “nonesense.”
But unlike her Fox News appearance, she did say clearly, “Avoid crowds.”
I refuse to accept wearing a mask is the new normal; this is TEMPORARY.
Lets do what we can to halt this intrusive virus while researchers continue finding treatments/vaccines and we can be done with this nonesense.
• Wash your hands
• Avoid crowds
• Protect the elderly

‘He Needs to Get Out’: Murkowski Unleashes on Trump – First GOP Senator to Call for Resignation, Says She May Exit Party
U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) on Friday blasted the leader of her party, President Donald Trump, becoming the first Republican Senator to call for his resignation. She also threatened to leave the GOP.
“I want him to resign. I want him out. He has caused enough damage,” Murkowski told the Anchorage Daily News. “I think he should leave.”
She also said, “if the Republican Party has become nothing more than the party of Trump, I sincerely question whether this is the party for me.”
President Trump, she added, “said he’s not going to show up. He’s not going to appear at the inauguration. He hasn’t been focused on what is going on with COVID. He’s either been golfing or he’s been inside the Oval Office fuming and throwing every single person who has been loyal and faithful to him under the bus, starting with the vice president. He doesn’t want to stay there. He only wants to stay there for the title. He only wants to stay there for his ego. He needs to get out. He needs to do the good thing, but I don’t think he’s capable of doing a good thing.”
The Alaska Senator blames Trump for the riotous insurrection, too.
“Even after the vice president told President Trump that,” he could not overturn the results of the election, Trump “still told his supporters to fight. How are they supposed to take that? It’s an order from the president. And so that’s what they did. They came up and they fought and people were harmed, and injured and died.”

Barr Contradicts Trump: No Widespread Election Fraud
Attorney General Bill Barr has just issued the most damning response from inside the Trump administration to counter the president’s weeks-long litany of lies about election fraud: there wasn’t any.
“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” Barr, who for years has gone to bat for Trump, told the Associated Press.
Before the election Barr worked to support President Donald Trump’s false claims of potential widespread election fraud. Nearly a week after the election Barr angered voting rights experts when he authorized the Dept. of Justice to investigate “substantial allegations” of voting irregularities.
But none have been uncovered, despite Trump’s daily lies and 40 lawsuits, of which he’s lost 39.
In an interview with the AP Barr “said U.S. attorneys and FBI agents have been working to follow up specific complaints and information they’ve received, but they’ve uncovered no evidence that would change the outcome of the election.”
This is a breaking news and developing story.
