AP reporter accuses GOPers of 'practicing revisionist history' for taking lab-leak theory seriously last year

“We should note one thing about former President Trump and some Republicans here, who seem to be almost taking a victory lap,” Lemire said on Thursday during a panel discussion on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” 

Lemire argued that the lab-leak theory was “not what” Trump said back in January 2020, insisting Trump “was leery about talking about the virus” “for fear of rattling the stock market” as well as “for fear of upsetting China” amid trade deal negotiations.

“He eventually, of course, took very harsh rhetoric to Beijing. But right now he and his allies are practicing some revisionist history,” Lemire said.
