“House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) rattled off a list of grievances on Tuesday’s edition of Hannity: high gas prices, problems with public education, and fentanyl coming across the southern border.
In doing so, McCarthy repeated the story of a woman who claimed she overdosed on fentanyl merely by picking up a dollar bill with the substance on it.
Numerous news outlets ran a story about a Kentucky woman named Renee Parsons who said she collapsed after touching the bill.
“As I was walking inside, there was a dollar on the floor just hanging out, so I picked it up, not thinking anything of it,” she said.
Parsons claimed her body went numb for 10 minutes and that she could not talk or breathe. Her husband drove her to a nearby hospital.”
