S.C. Gov. McMaster: "Our National 'Experts' Are Engaging In Frightening Hyperbole," "Scare Tactics" On COVID
South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster blasted "exaggeration" and "hyperbole" about the COVID-19 pandemic during an interview with Dana Perino on "FOX News Sunday."
"I think the tone -- some of the exaggeration going on, some hyperbole. Those figures that you just mentioned, yes the rates are going up but they're way below what they were a year ago," he said. "We have put the fire out. It's smoldering in places and could come back up, but the house is not on fire again."
"We're gonna trust the people to do the right thing, we're giving them the right information, but I believe a lot of our national experts are engaging in frightening hyperbole."
"The vaccine works, but it is not for everybody," he also said.
