Tom DeLay was a guest on Steve Malzberg’s Newsmax radio program yesterday where he declared that Americans simply cannot trust President Obama or anyone in the government when it comes to handling the current Ebola crisis.
DeLay asserted that the Obama administration “cannot seem to get beyond their liberal leanings” and take the steps necessary to keep the disease from entering the United States.
“We can’t believe everything they’re telling us,” DeLay said. “I’ve got so many questions about Ebola and how it’s contracted.”
DeLay was not convinced that Ebola can only be contracted by contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person, pointing to the infection of NBC cameraman Ashoka Mukpo in Liberia to ask “was he touching people’s bodily fluids, did he touch a doorknob?”(Mukpo thinks he may have become infected after washing a car in which an Ebola patient had died.)
“We know nothing,” DeLay said, “so we can’t believe what they’re telling us and certainly we can’t be confident that they’re doing the right thing”:
