Claim via Social Media: A doctor tweeted that she doesn’t regret giving the COVID-19 vaccine, “even if it turns out I injected you with actual poison and you only have days to live.”

Politifact rating: Pants on Fire (A similar fake tweet attributed to the same doctor went viral in January and was debunked by multiple news outlets.)

Those tweets are fake. Florida doctor didn’t say COVID vaccines were ‘actual poison’

BLATANT
LIE
Claim by Eric Trump: Alvin Bragg shut down NYC, called 38,000 officers and spent $200M

USA Today rating: False (Bragg did not order New York City to be shut down, and that didn’t happen. The New York Police Department did close a part of FDR Drive, but this was not on Bragg’s order. Bragg does not oversee the NYPD and has no authority to call up officers. There’s no proof the $200 million figure is correct.)

Fact check: Eric Trump spreads false claims about Alvin Bragg after Donald Trump’s arrest

FALSE (International: Russia): Claim by Sergey Naryshkin: “The current regime in Kyiv and its masters in the capitals of Western nations seek not only to ban, but to physically destroy canonical Orthodoxy in the territory of Ukraine.”

POLYGRAPH.info rating: False

Russian Spy Chief Spins Conspiracy Theory West is Destroying Orthodox Church in Ukraine
