Paul Krugman writes for the NYT, and received the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2008.
He is also a purveyor of dangerous fake news, falsely tweeting that Puerto Rico has a cholera outbreak due to Hurricane Maria, and is somehow blaming President Trump for this non-existent story.
He then semi-retracted his claim: Now it’s conjunctivitis.
….It doesn’t matter; those who hate Trump will believe he somehow caused a cholera epidemic by ignoring the crisis in Puerto Rico because of all the brown people. Right, Kruggie?
OK, cholera not confirmed. Conjunctivitis yes; lack of clean water (situation worsening, not improving) makes it a risk. But not certain
