Lirus (lie + virus)

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

“Infected with the Lirus? (that’s a cross between a lie and a virus)” was posted on Twitter by Fake Internet News on February 22, 2013. “#Lirus?” was posted on Twitter by Classic Movies 🎞 on March 11, 2020. “Donald trump called it #lirus” was posted on Twitter by TXN_910 a few minutes later on March 11, 2020. The tweets on March 11th were on the belief that U.S. President Donald Trump might have said “lie-rus” for “virus.”

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

I was laughing too hard at his pronouncing of virus as #Lirus to pay attention to his other screwups

So, in order to make it about himself, his repeated reference to a #lirus must be mean he is finally acknowledging the #LyingVirus, which he has long suffered from.
