SHOT: John Cornyn: “unfortunately some people have seen [coronavirus] as an invitation or opportunity for hateful rhetoric.”
CHASER: Cornyn “told a reporter on . . . that China was to blame for the coronavirus ‘because the culture where people eat bats and snakes and dogs and things like that, these viruses are transmitted from the animal to the people and that’s why China has been the source of a lot of these viruses like SARS, like MERS, the swine flu and now the coronavirus.’”
Senator John Cornyn continues to peddle racism and hate against Asian-Americans.
