White House claims failing its own pandemic exercise proves it was prepared



By Dan Desai Martin -May 14, 2020 6:21 PM

A 2019 pandemic exercise only foreshadowed the mistakes the Trump administration has made so far during the coronavirus crisis.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany claimed on Thursday that the Obama administration had left behind an "insufficient" pandemic response plan, and that Donald Trump had replaced it with a superior version that left his team completely prepared to face the current coronavirus crisis.

"The Obama-Biden plan that has been referenced was insufficient," McEnany said during a press gaggle, citing the former administration's pandemic playbook, first reported by Politico back in March.

She then bragged that the Trump administration had instead put together "an entire 2018 pandemic preparedness report," and "did a whole exercise on pandemic preparedness in August of last year and had an entire after-action report put together" on the matter.

The "Obama-Biden paper packet," McEnany claimed, was replaced with a "Trump-style pandemic preparedness response plan."

3. They Had A Plan

They ran an exercise. They graded the exercise. They revised the plan.
Then, they ignored an actual event for 2 months and screwed this whole response up. 20% market value loss, 30+ million unemployed, and 86,000 dead. Not a ringing endorsement for their plan.
If they did this exercise, we'd have heard about it February instead of "democratic hoax". We would have heard some detail about containment plans in early March, not "15, it will be soon be to zero", or " it goes away in the spring".
The put this response plan story together since Monday.
And another thing: she just happened to be carrying a binder of it today(!), but never before. And it wasn't digitally converted for a boss WE KNOW does digital devices? Yeah, sure!
