Don’t be surprised about this. Come on. Lying and finger-pointing have always been Donald Trump’s M.O. Why would anyone think he’d behave differently in an emergency? With the pressure on, his go-to defense mechanisms were bound to get even worse.
Trump then suggests people are to blame if they can't get a test, saying, "If you go to the right agents, if you go to the right area, you get the test." He doesn't say who are the right agents or what are the right areas. https://t.co/VLQUeSYSoR— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) March 12, 2020
Meanwhile, in South Korea, which is testing 20,000 people for coronavirus per day (the U.S. has apparently tested fewer than 8,000 total), you can get tested at a drive-through.
