[See NewsBusters for more.] John King became the latest media personality on Thursday to claim that the deaths from COVID-19, which now exceed 100,000, will be "a devastating piece of the Trump legacy." Making things worse, the CNN Newsroom host utilized a video montage to claim that President Trump's inconsistencies make it even worse and that Trump is hurt by his own lack of empathy.

During the segment with Dana Bash, King declared, "There is no playbook for it and yet, part of the issue here is, he’s a few months from his own re-election, he wants to be re-elected for four more years. One hundred thousand is a devastating piece of the Trump legacy, that’s not assigning blame, that’s just history."
