Donald Trump talking about 'the Zika' yesterday....

ABC Breaking News | Latest News Videos every student ever who didn’t read the book and is trying to wing it when the teacher asks what they think it was about.


Via Marc Caputo's Florida Playbook:
Donald Trump paid homage to [Gov. Rick] Scott amid a two-city swing that brought him to Daytona Beach and Jacksonville. Trump sounded out of his depth. But he was fortunate enough to have a TV reporter who asked no challenging follow-ups. The transcript:

-- TRUMP: "You have a great governor who's doing a fantastic job - Rick Scott -- on the Zika. And it's a problem. It's a big problem. But I watch and I see. And I see what they're doing with the spraying and everything else. And I think he's doing a fantastic job. And he's letting everyone know exactly what the problem is and how to get rid of it. He's going to have it under control. He probably already does."

-- Q: What about Congress convening an emergency session to pass the bipartisan $1.9 billion Zika-aid legislation?

-- TRUMP: "I would say that it's up to Rick Scott. It depends on what he's looking to do. Because he really seems to have it under control in Florida."

But here's Caputo fact checking Trump:
ZIKA IS NOT UNDER CONTROL!!!! - First: Neither Scott nor anyone else has Zika "under control." Last year, there were no Zika virus infections in Florida. Now the infection count stands at 351 (only 15 of which have been locally transmitted). Second: the "spraying" might not actually work on the Aedes aegypti mosquito. Third: Since when is a CONGRESSIONAL session "up to Rick Scott" or any governor?
