Trump's coronavirus (or, as he calls it, “CoronaVirus!”) presser at 3 p.m. ET was another shitstorm.
Why in the absolute fuck are the CEOs of CVS, Target, Walgreens and Walmart getting all this love at Trump's declaration of a national emergency? We want scientists ONLY.
Trump also uttered the words destined to haunt him into the fall and destined to mark his entire reign:
Q: Do you take responsibility for the lag in #coronavirus testing?— Pod Save America (@PodSaveAmerica) March 13, 2020

Yamiche Alcindor from PBS NewsHour asked Trump about the disbanding of the pandemic-response team in 2018 — and he totally denied firing them, even though he did. Played dumb:
Video of my question to @realDonaldTrump today on his administration's disbanding of the White House team responsible for coordinating responses to pandemics.— Yamiche Alcindor (@Yamiche) March 13, 2020
He called my question nasty & said he knew nothing about it.
I call it a relevant, fair, and truth-seeking question. https://t.co/ncYwqZ0Xtp
