People have now discovered that the Obama administration left the Trump administration a detailed pandemic response playbook, so there’s only one thing to do: Release the lying monkeys! Lie, my pretties! Lie!
Trump and Kayleigh McEnany are now trying to dismiss the pandemic response plan Obama left for Trump as a mere "paper packet" that paled in comparison to Trump's (nonexistent) plan pic.twitter.com/lsQ8UJUqK7— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) May 14, 2020
KAYLEIGH MCENANY: “I just wanted to outline our pandemic preparedness. The Obama-Biden plan that has been referenced was insufficient, wasn’t going to work. So what our administration did under the leadership of President Trump was do an entire 28-team pandemic preparedness report. Beyond that we did a whole exercise on pandemic preparedness in August of last year and had an entire after-action report put together. In other words the Obama-Biden paper packet was superseded by a President Trump-style pandemic preparedness response plan.”
TRUMP: “Which was much better, which was much more complete, and which was a lot tougher. We were given very little when we came in to this administration and they’ve done a fantastic job, and I think we’re going to have a vaccine by the end of the year.”
1) We almost certainly will not have a vaccine by the end of the year.
2) Oh, you had a great pandemic response plan ready to go? I’ll let those 86,000 dead Americans know tout de suite.
