Senior Biden advisor Symone Sanders was called-out by Fox News for her campaign’s recent claim the President uses “racial slurs” when describing the Coronavirus Thursday; informing her that the MERS virus stands for ‘Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome.’

“Some of what he said today was good, but the reality is he also stood at the podium and called the Coronavirus CoVID-19 what I would suggest is a racial slur. It’s something offensive to Chinese-Americans,” said Symone Sanders.

“Why is that? To call it a Chinese virus when it originated in China, why is that a problem?” asked Fox News’ Martha MacCallum.

“It’s something that’s offensive to many Americans,” claimed the Biden advisor.

“Let’s be serious for a second here. Do you know why it’s called MERS? It’s the Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome. Because that’s where it originated. This rabbit-hole of getting into this whole issue of racism is so counter-productive to what we’re trying to do,” said MacCallum.
