The United States has fallen far behind other countries in terms of testing for coronavirus, and CNN senior investigative correspondent Drew Griffin said that the government is only just now coming to terms with the scope of the problem.

During an interview with host Kate Bolduan, Griffin said it was stunning to see America being so slow to react to what has become a global pandemic.

“You want a sign of how bad it is with the federal government and the coordination?” he asked rhetorically. “Just less than an hour ago, Health and Human Services announced they’re appointing somebody as the testing czar to oversee the testing. We’re weeks into this virus spreading across the country, and they really didn’t have anybody overseeing this?”

He then explained how dangerous it is for public health to still be far behind on testing capacity.

“If you can’t get these tests, experts tell us you don’t know what you’re fighting,” he said. “You don’t know where you’re fighting, you don’t know where to put the resources to fight it, you can’t contain it! And they’re telling us we’re six to eight weeks behind in this effort! Where the heck are these tests? Why aren’t they going out? Nobody seems to have an answer.”

After all, Trump is a sociopathic narcissist with the emotional control of a — well, I won't insult toddlers with the comparison — and he lives in mortal terror of being viewed as a loser. He's already made clear that he will refuses to concede, no matter what, and he's grasping desperately for any way to get legal ballots thrown out so he can steal the election.

Published

Politics and religion are colliding out west after comments a Republican senator made while stumping for the president.

"Sen. Mike Lee drew criticism from members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this week after comparing President Donald Trump to Captain Moroni, a heroic and selfless figure in the Book of Mormon," The Arizona Republic reported Friday evening.

"To my Mormon friends, my Latter-day Saint friends, think of him as Captain Moroni," Lee (R-UT) said, pointing to Trump. "He seeks not power, but to pull it down. He seeks not the praise of the world or the ‘fake news,’ but he seeks the well-being and the peace of the American people."
