Former Republican congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul claimed that Coronavirus may be a big hoax and wondered why Democrats are so suddenly quick to give President Donald Trump new powers.
It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans, Paul wrote in a column for his site.

Could be? So far, it is. Colorado just closed all restaurants and bars and public gatherings. Martial law by any other name.
No hoax, but the left is using it to create problems for Trump.
Or a real virus, but being turned into a panic by dems and the media in an attempt to crash the economy and thereby deny Trump re-election.
I don’t believe it’s a “hoax,” but from Day 1 I have been convinced that the response to it has been an overblown, media-driven frenzy by impulsive and pathetically immature people.
He's got the crazy eyes.
Semantics are important.
It’s not a hoax. It can and will be used to take rights away if we let it.
The left loves hysteria and panic.
I cant say hes definitely wrong. Could go further than that as it originated in China and is doing massive damage in Europe and elsewhere. If there is a mastermind behind it, it doesnt appear to be in this country
WelI, I don’t think it’s a hoax, but you can be sure the Democrats will use it as an excuse to take away as many rights as possible.
Exactly. Never let a crisis go to waste.
The Left is observing all this, and is LEARNING from this. Some how in future, they will find a way to use these tools against America and Americans
It does give one a moments pause....
That’s actually Ron’s son Rand...
The restaurant closure areas are almost all Democrats who want to feel their oats.
I don’t believe the virus is a hoax but I think what R Paul is saying is like the Ukraine phone call the portrayal of it as a earth shattering event is a hoax.
I tend to agree with him. This thing is MASSIVELY overblown.
Thats Rand, not Ron.
Ron looks like a Martian.
