Several members of Donald Trump’s coronavirus task force are working with the Centers for Disease Control to revise how they count coronavirus deaths so that they can revise those numbers downward. The only reason they want to do this is because they want to make Trump look better. This is not how it works, and Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins offers an explanation about why the death tolls are NOT over-inflated, in spite of what Republicans keep saying.
