7. He won't be calling on her again

That should have been the first question from any competent media member. Then every other media member would follow up once his response was dismissive and not sufficient.

That's the way it used to be when every top media organization was represented by its best guys and the White House didn't disgracefully manipulate the process.

Now we're at least getting some stronger questioning late in the process. Pence just had to jump in and try to bail out Trump regarding test procedures.

He knows he screwed up and trying to blame some underling for eliminating an entire federal agency, cut their funding, and fire all their staff without his knowledge or approval.

Trump wanted no part of the truth, that he fired people and disbanded the offices without replacing them with anyone comparable or necessary.

77. I ran the White House pandemic office. Trump closed it.

The federal government is moving too slowly, due to a lack of leadership.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/nsc-pandemic-office-trump-closed/2020/03/13/a70de09c-6491-11ea-acca-80c22bbee96f_story.html

By
Beth Cameron
Beth Cameron is vice president for global biological policy and programs at the Nuclear Threat Initiative. She previously served as the senior director for global health security and biodefense on the White House National Security Council.


When President Trump took office in 2017, the White House’s National Security Council Directorate for Global Health Security and Biodefense survived the transition intact. Its mission was the same as when I was asked to lead the office, established after the Ebola epidemic of 2014: to do everything possible within the vast powers and resources of the U.S. government to prepare for the next disease outbreak and prevent it from becoming an epidemic or pandemic.

One year later, I was mystified when the White House dissolved the office, leaving the country less prepared for pandemics like covid-19. The U.S. government’s slow and inadequate response to the new coronavirus underscores the need for organized, accountable leadership to prepare for and respond to pandemic threats.

In a health security crisis, speed is essential. When this new coronavirus emerged, there was no clear White House-led structure to oversee our response, and we lost valuable time. Yes, we have capable and committed global and national disease-prevention and management organizations, as well as state and local health departments, all working overtime now. But even in prepared cities like Seattle, health systems are struggling to test patients and keep pace with growing caseloads. The specter of rapid community transmission and exponential growth is real and daunting. The job of a White House pandemics office would have been to get ahead: to accelerate the response, empower experts, anticipate failures, and act quickly and transparently to solve problems.

It’s impossible to assess the full impact of the 2018 decision to disband the White House office responsible for this work. Biological experts do remain in the White House and in our government. But it is clear that eliminating the office has contributed to the federal government’s sluggish domestic response. What’s especially concerning about the absence of this office today is that it was originally set up because a previous epidemic made the need for it quite clear.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.pbs.org/newshour/amp/show/trump-calls-a-question-about-nationalism-racist-in-post-election-news-conference

"Yamiche Alcindor:

On the campaign trail, you called yourself a nationalist. Some people saw that as emboldening white nationalists. Now people are also saying…

President Donald Trump:

I don't know why you'd say that. That's such a racist question.

Yamiche Alcindor:

There are some people that say that now the Republican Party is seen as supporting white nationalists because of your rhetoric. What do you make of that?

President Donald Trump:

Oh, I don't believe that. I don't believe that.

I don't believe it. Just — well, I don't know. Why do I have my highest poll numbers ever with African-Americans? Why do I have among the highest poll numbers with African-Americans? I mean, why do I have my highest poll numbers? That's such a racist question.

Honestly, I mean, I know you have it written down. It's a racist question."....(more)

They seem to be focused on getting their own question (and 15 seconds on camera) that they're not interested in following up a significant line of questioning.

Could it be that none of them was aware of the story that triggered the question?

61. CNN just showed a clip of Trump acknowledging the cuts on February 26

A reporter asked him about it and Trump had no trouble remembering. He said many of those people had not been needed for many years so they were let go. He dismissed it by saying we can get them back if we need to.

Those segments need to be shown side by side. David Gergen was shaking his head in the background when CNN found the clip of Trump fully aware of something he denied today. All of the panel agreed that Trump did further damage to his credibility during the questioning.

64. I like Yamiche,

but in answer to your question -- No, no they don't -- Other people were essentially asking him the same question. :

66. The thing about Ms Alcindor is that her fairness is unflagging

I love her, but I will also admit that she's upset me a few times when I've felt she's been too generous to the current regime, just as I felt she had been with the campaign of the senator she covered in the 2016 primary and they are at opposite ends of the political spectrum.

68. Yamiche asks a serious question.

A question we should all be given the answer to.

Trump sees it as a personal attack. So he has to call it nasty, and deflect.

Once again, Trump shows it's his ego talking. It overrides everything. Fitness for being and staying POTUS = ZERO!

78. the worst part

is that she tried to ask a follow up question as to how he could not know anything about it when it was HIS administration and HIS decision, but the White House cut her mic

80. While we are praising Yamiche, let's not forget the other woman color, Kristen Welker

Kristen was the one that asked him if he takes any responsibility -

83. Hear hear! She also asked him if he was being selfish not getting tested

and got him to kinda sorta say he was going to get tested, then he said they're trying to work out the details on that, lol

F'ing LIAR.

(I think that was her...so many great women standing up and holding his tiny feet to the fire!)

84. "Mr. President, I'm a nasty woman reporter and have a nasty question for you."

I wonder how he would respond.....

Trump's goons would probably escort her out in cuffs.......

Reminds me of that TV reporter disgusted with her job that said "f**k this job" on live TV and walked off the set....

86. "That's a nasty question"

No, it's a very pertinent and necessary question. When an irresponsible juvenile breaks a lamp then denies any responsibility even though he was seen breaking it, you don't just let that pass.

In the current crisis the damage can't be compared to a broken lamp, but the hand of an irresponsible juvenile is all over the damage and human tragedy unfolding in real time.

We don't know how much destruction will be wrought by the coronavirus or to what extent its spread could have been prevented.

What we do know is the Trump administration purposely crippled the agencies which were specifically built with scientists and dedicated public servants to address exactly this kind of crisis. Does Donald take any responsibility for what the Trump administration does?

Will this irresponsible juvenile get a complete pass on this from a voting base which carries more risk factors than the average American?

Will the Democrats sieze this golden opportunity, after the worst of the crisis has passed, successfully make the point that so much of what Trump touches, dies?

87. When this orange bloated sack

of shit finally does the world a favor and dies, can we all attend his funeral and treat his corpse like a pinata? I think that would be therapeutic as hell.

89. to be fair, White House correspondents take heat to him regularly

Think about Jim Acosta!

(whose family fled Cuba to come to America)

Trump doesn't like brown people, period.

She WAS terrific yesterday.

90. Good Question!

Has anybody heard a reporter ask the simple question as to how this went from a hoax to a national emergency in about 10 days?
Straightforward question that could be asked with no snark.
If someone has asked that direct question, I haven't heard it.
