Gov. Jay Inslee’s Press Conference: Watch Inslee’s response to questions about the Freedom Foundation’s analysis of his government’s overreporting COVID 19 deaths
The Freedom Foundation’s Max Nelsen released his report shortly before Inslee’s regular Monday press conference, and the media actually asked the governor about it. The questions caught Inslee off-guard.
He was defensive, and his response was astonishing and Saul Alinsky like.
Inslee said: “I guess they’re saying … we should not act responsibly if there’s only 887 people dead instead of 1,000 … (The Freedom Foundation) went out and argue(d) that 887 dead is just not something to be worried about … They’re fanning the flames of misinformation…and it’s dangerous to people’s health.”
Later when he was asked a follow-up question about the study, Inslee replied: “The problem is, you’ve got some people out there who are fanning these conspiracy claims from the planet Pluto. And it’s just disgusting what they’re trying to say about all these crazy, deep state malarkey”.
Gov. Inslee likes to say he is making decisions based on science and hard data. Our research says otherwise.
