#MitchMcconnell LIED--he said Obama did not leave Trump admin a gameplan to deal with Pandemic..

damn.

This is a literal lie. The Obama admin literally left a “Pandemic Playbook,” here in PDF form, that Trump ignored. They literally did leave a “game plan.” https://politico.com/news/magazine/



Tonight's Team Trump Livestream features Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who, talking COVID-19, tells Lara Trump, "clearly the Obama administration did not leave to this administration, any kind of game plan for something like this."

1. Obama's people trained them! They did an exercise to teach them what to do.

 

They acted like the petulant man-babies they are.

"
In 2017, Obama officials briefed Trump's team on dealing with a pandemic like the coronavirus. One Cabinet member reportedly fell asleep, and others didn't want to be there.

In the days before Donald Trump's inauguration, outgoing Obama administration officials trained his incoming administration on how to deal with a pandemic.

Politico said it obtained documents from the meeting and spoke with more than a dozen people who attended the training, which was described as "weird" at best.

One member of Trump's Cabinet, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, reportedly dozed off, and others questioned why they had to be there.

When President Donald Trump visited the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention earlier this month as coronavirus cases accelerated in the US, he said that "you can never really think" that something like this might happen.

But it turns out the Obama administration did think this was something Trump could face in office and took steps to brief his appointees on how to respond to an outbreak before he took over in 2017."

2. I'll say it again...

If I were walking down the street and happened upon Mitch McConnell's severed head lying in the gutter, I'd fucking kick it into traffic.

3. The real message is:

It is Obama's fault that we didn't give a damn about pandemic preparation.

10. Where is the Trump-McConnell plan?

Since they lost Obama's, they should have drafted one up?

Why haven't we seen it?

Where's the organization chart?
What has been done and when?
What are the next steps?
etc

Months into the worst pandemic in US history ...

Crickets, right?
