Former Republican congressman Joe Walsh issued a dire warning on Monday that watching Fox News could get viewers killed after right-wing host Laura Ingraham said on her show that there was “no real scientific basis” to support social distancing to reduce the spread of coronavirus.

Walsh responded to Ingraham’s dismissal of social distancing as a way to control the spread of COVID-19 by sharing a video of her comments with a warning that watching the conservative network could get people killed:

“Have I mentioned before that watching Fox News can get you killed?” he wrote on Twitter, sharing a clip of Ingraham contradicting public health officials who have promoted social distancing to limit contact between people and therefore reduce the spread of the virus.

Walsh wasn’t alone in calling out Ingraham:

Trump, who frequently attacked then-president Barack Obama for golfing, has spent more than $130 million in taxpayers’ money on golfing trips. And he couldn’t take the heat after the campaign of presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden released an ad pointing out his golfing trip as the COVID-19 death toll mounts.

On Sunday, he responded to the ad, comparing himself (favorably, of course) to Obama:

On Monday, Memorial Day, he jumped on Twitter again, this time blaming the “truly deranged” media for supposedly elevating the story. “[Obama] also played moments after the brutal killing by ISIS of a wonderful young man,” Trump said. “Totally inappropriate – and it was me who shattered 100% of the ISIS Caliphate. I was left a MESS!”

Trump also threatened to pull the Republican National Convention from Charlotte, citing North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper’s “shutdown mood” and noncommitment to saying whether or not a convention for tens of thousands of people in the state’s largest city will be able to take place in August.

Aside from defending his hobbies, Trump’s Memorial Day weekend of tweeting included retweeting several posts by a former congressional candidate with a history of making racist and sexist remarks about black women.
