‘Oh my god — no!’ MSNBC’s Mika visibly rattled by Trump official’s response to coronavirus

Published

on

Trump economic adviser Larry Kudlow’s rosy assessment of the state of the coronavirus in the United States left MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski feeling rattled on “Morning Joe” Wednesday.

After watching a clip of Kudlow claiming that the virus had already been “contained” despite Centers for Disease Control officials’ warnings that the impact of the virus “might be bad,” Brzezinski’s eyes visibly widened.

“Oh my God!” she exclaimed. “You just… No!”

MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle then shredded the White House for sending completely contradictory messages about the virus’s impact on both public health and the economy.

“This whole thing is stunning,” she said. “When you look at what happened to the market in the last two days, investors aren’t saying that they know that pandemic is coming, investors are selling because they have can’t trust information.”

She then explained that both the Trump administration and the Chinese government were both doing their best to paper over problems caused by the virus, which has led investors to conclude that no one has any idea how bad the potential pandemic could be.

On Thursday, appearing on the Slate radio show "The Gist" with Mike Pesca, journalist Catherine Stewart outlined some of the ways the Christian Right is responsible for the federal government's disastrous response to coronavirus.

"The coronavirus pandemic is real wrath-of-God type stuff, isn't it?" said Pesca. "Well, there are some people who are waiting for this, who are ready for this, and who, quite scarily, have been tasked with the response."

"It's a complex question, and I think that Christian Nationalism, which is what we're dealing with here, is not a religion," said Stewart. "Many evangelicals are doing very positive things, many religious people are doing a lot of positive things in this situation with the coronavirus. But Christian Nationalism is not a religion, it's a political ideology that cloaks itself in religious rhetoric. And it's a movement that put Trump in power."

Jared Kushner ripped by NYT columnist: He will ‘get us all killed’ with his incompetence

Published

On Thursday, writing for The New York Times, columnist Michelle Goldberg laid into President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, who appeared at the day's coronavirus press conference to blame states for the federal government's slow response.

"Reporting on the White House’s herky-jerky coronavirus response, Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman has a quotation from Jared Kushner that should make all Americans, and particularly all New Yorkers, dizzy with terror," wrote Goldberg. "According to Sherman, when New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, said that the state would need 30,000 ventilators at the apex of the coronavirus outbreak, Kushner decided that Cuomo was being alarmist. 'I have all this data about I.C.U. capacity,' Kushner reportedly said. 'I'm doing my own projections, and I've gotten a lot smarter about this. New York doesn’t need all the ventilators.'"
