The top spokesman at Health and Human Services accused scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of “sedition” for their response to the coronavirus pandemic and warned people to buy guns and ammo because an insurrection led by Democrats could start on Inauguration Day if President Trump refuses to “stand down,” according to a report Monday.
Michael Caputo, who was appointed by the president to be the HHS spokesman in April, claimed without providing evidence that the CDC was creating a haven for a “resistance unit,” working to undermine President Trump, the New York Times reported.
Caputo also said his life could be in danger.
“You understand that they’re going to have to kill me, and unfortunately, I think that’s where this is going,” he told his followers in a live video posted on his Facebook page on Sunday.
He also predicted that Trump will win re-election but Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, won’t concede.
