Jake Tapper drops the mic on Donald Trump over his coronavirus response during his closing statement on State of the Union: “This is not about winning the newscycle on Fox News” as he asked “where is your plan?”
Tapper said: “I know you, like millions of Americans, are eager to have the nation go back to some semblance of normal. Americans…need someone to explain what is going to be done to get us out of this. It’s a moment that requires leadership. It requires honest information. It requires empathy and it requires a plan. Do you have one?”
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow also hit Trump hard last week for his bungled response. (Watch the entire clip)
“Mr. President, there are things that only you can do here. But the most important thing that you can do is put somebody in charge. You know, you’ll love it, because whoever you pick, you can blame that person at the end when there are still 100,000 or 200,000 dead Americans piled up in the nation’s funeral homes and crematoriums and cemeteries. Pick somebody you’re looking forward to scapegoating and blaming and saying that it was all their fault from the beginning.”
According to the latest statistics, the coronavirus pandemic has claimed nearly 9,000 lives in the U.S., as it continues to spread across the country.
Twitter reacts after Jake Tapper drops the mic on Donald Trump over his coronavirus response: “This is not about winning the newscycle on Fox News:”
He needs to be removed for his incompetence.

The answer to all is No. There aren’t any plans. The GOP, they did not step up and stand up. The only plan is to blame Obama, blame Pelosi, blame everyone but the one in charge. #TrumpOwnsEveryDeath #GOPBetrayedAmerica

Trump isn’t a leader; he is a TV reality star and failed real estate faceman. It is all about rating.

His plan is to lie to the American people to try and jump start the economy before Election Day. He will do or say whatever it takes to get re elected because once stripped of the protection of the office he is a wanted man

Who thought the FALL of the United States of America would be at the hands of a second rate reality TV host?
It’s like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz needing to know the Words “There’s no place like home”
We can end this horror show now, with two little words “You’re FIRED”
