Lierus (lie + virus)

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic resulted in many skeptics, who called it a “lierus” (lie + virus).

“Corona Virus? More like Corona Lierus” was posted on Twitter by Mitchel Smith on March 7, 2020. “Corona LIErus” was posted on Twitter by Quantum17 on March 10, 2020. “I do believe he just called it a ‘lierus’” was posted on Twitter by Mike Peters on March 11, 2020. (The tweet on March 11th was on the belief that U.S. President Donald Trump might have said “lie-rus” for “virus.")

“Lirus” (lie + virus) is another spelling.


Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak

My sister in law left her nursing duties over fear of the #coronavirus . She got tested & (of course) it was negative, yet I’m still stuck watching her kids while she “self quarantines”, even tho her hospital has ZERO infected patients! We are being lied to! #heroes #Lierus
