‘You cannot fight the pandemic with lies’ — Angela Merkel knows how to insert a dagger

France’s President Emmanuel Macron and Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel look at Trump at a NATO summit in Watford, UK, on Dec 4, 2019.

CNN  reports “Angela Merkel may not scream down the phone at President Donald Trump — but she knows how to insert a dagger.”

Trump, as well as Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro and Russia’s Vladimir Putin, must have felt his ears burning when the German Chancellor demolished their approaches to the coronavirus in a speech Thursday. “As we are experiencing firsthand, you cannot fight the pandemic with lies and disinformation any more than you can fight it with hate or incitement to hatred,” Merkel said. “The limits of populism and denial of basic truths are being laid bare.”
