Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer freely pushed a false claim that President Donald Trump called the novel coronavirus a “hoax," despite it being debunked numerous times.

Schumer spoke with leftist host Nicolle Wallace on “MSNBC Live with Ali Velshi."

Wallace brought up the story from the New York Times “about a former top vaccine doctor [Rick Bright] who was ousted from his position” before asking if there was “a more robust oversight role for science right now in the executive branch that” Schumer would “advocate.”

“There has to be,” Schumer said.

“This is science, and because so many in the administration haven’t listened to science is one of the reasons we’re in trouble here. And it says another thing, Nicole.”

“Everyone has seen how Donald Trump has behaved during coronavirus, so much of a concern about himself rather than helping people, pushing it under the rug, calling it a hoax, saying it will go away, delaying the activities we need.”

According to multiple fact-checks from Washington Post to the Daily Caller’s Check Your Fact, the claim has been rated fake news.

“There’s almost no one in the White House who speaks truth to power, who says the truth to the president and says ‘you have to listen to this,'” Schumer continued.

“In fact, anybody who does that, like this gentleman from BARDA, ends up getting fired – or like so many others we know, big names, generals, they get exasperated and leave.”

“When truth doesn’t prevail – that’s the American way, truth and facts, and science. When they don’t prevail, we run into real trouble," he added.

"In this administration, there are just too few people who will speak that truth to power, who will let the president know what the real facts are and say, ‘Mr. President, you’re wrong, chloroquine doesn’t work.'”

Wallace also failed to note issues with the Times story.

The MSNBC host suggested it was plain that Bright was fired for refusing to “champion the unproven drug treatments that Donald Trump and his allies on Fox News were so enthused about.”

But according to various reports, Bright was on his way out far before the novel coronavirus outbreak.

Moreover, according to a press release, the former head of the Health and Human Services (HHS) vaccine office requested that the Food and Drug Administration [FDA] “issue an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for emergency use of oral formulations of chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate for the treatment of 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19)”
