According to a report from the Daily Wire MSNBC host Chris Hayes accused President Trump of creating a conspiracy ploy to make himself look like a hero.
The Trump administration lowered the number of projected coronavirus related deaths to roughly 60,000.
“The most cynical interpretation of all this, one I can’t quite bring myself to accept, is they rolled out the model showing 100k deaths after they knew it would be less than that so they could anchor everyone to that # and take a victory lap when ‘only’ tens of thousands died,” Hayes wrote.

Jason Rantz of KTTH reacted, “You lack a soul, a conscience, and any semblance of integrity.”
The central model was from IHME,” said one user. “A University of Washington research center. Imperial college model originally predicted up to 2.2 million deaths. That’s a lot of people in on the conspiracy.”
“If you watched the press briefings you would know that they said repeatedly their goal was to be significantly lower than those numbers. Dr. Fauci only said it a half a dozen times,” said another user.
“I said I can’t bring myself to accept it! But he’s been very very weird about ‘coming in under the model’ in this unnerving, disassociated way,” Hayes later said.

As reported by The Daily Wire’s Amanda Prestigiacomo, the White House updated its coronavirus projection models on Wednesday, lowering the death count and hospitalizations by steady margins: from 93,531 deaths to 81,766 deaths to 60,415 deaths.
“Moreover, the projected total hospital bed shortage decreased from 34,654 to 15,852 (a revised number from April 5), and the so-called ‘peak’ of hospital usage was pushed up from April 15 to April 11,” reported Prestigiacomo. “The peak daily death toll was also moved up to April 12, from the revised April 16 date.”
Though Dr. Fauci has made it clear life will be significantly altered over the next year, he did express optimism that public life will reopen again.
“You know, it is unpredictable, but you can get a feel for it if we start talking about the things where the curve goes down,” Fauci said during the Tuesday task force briefing. “How we respond and what kind of a rebound we see or don’t see, I think is going to have a lot of influence probably more immediately on things like summer camps than it does in the fall.”
“I fully expect – though, I’m humble enough to know that I can’t accurately predict – that by the time we get to the fall that we will have this under control, enough that it certainly will not be the way it is now where people are shutting schools,” he continued.
