Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, falsely claimed that “people don’t die of [COVID-19] anymore” while standing in a cramped room of Trump supporters in Philadelphia on Monday.
The former New York City mayor was attending a Columbus Day gathering of Italian Americans for Trump and speaking without wearing a mask when he made the egregious comment.
“People don’t die of this disease anymore,” he said to the nodding of heads and verbal agreement in the audience. “Young people don’t die at all. Middle-aged people die very little. And even elderly people have a 1% chance of dying.”
