Now they want to blame the CDC and China but you can't rewrite history.
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/pence-seeks-to-blame-cdc-and-china-for-any-delay-in-us-coronavirus-response-not-trumps-initial-failure-to-face-reality/ar-BB121GUm?li=BBnb7Kz

At the coronavirus briefing on February 26, for example, Trump said all of the following: "This is a flu. This is like a flu"; "Now, you treat this like a flu"; "It's a little like the regular flu that we have flu shots for. And we'll essentially have a flu shot for this in a fairly quick manner."

I see there CNN. Top right.

I wonder if any of these did the same?

I don't know. It is just that the article is from CNN. Anyone saying that he should have known should be looking at what EVERYONE was saying at the time. Yes, there was reason to see it to be untrue, but just look how many were comparing it to the flu.

Not sure but the point is they are trying to blame everyone besides the guy who claimed 15 will be zero, it is just the flu, it is a D hoax and the list goes on and on.

His inaction and head buried in the sand attitude cost American lives. How many remains to be seen.

Not sure
Um, isn't that the most important question here?
The only real problem here is if the CDC came to Trump and said "this is gonna be bad, we need to do xyz to prepare" and he told them to stand down.

So you're looking for a candidate for a new "longest thread on DDF?"

Cuomo is overruling him *today* while NYers are burying people by the dozen.

No, he was too busy making movie recommendations and going to the gym to make any blunders

https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2020/04/01/825179922/fighting-covid-19-is-like-whack-a-mole-says-writer-who-warned-of-pandemic

COVID-19 was taking off in China for at least a month before it first reached U.S. shores. And during that month, not much actually happened [in the U.S.]. A lot of preparedness measures could have been launched. The country could have sprung into action, ready for this, for the virus to eventually reach it. But if anything, America more or less sat idle. It was sluggish. And I do wonder if that propensity to think of itself as being truly exceptional, that slight hubris, left it more unprepared than it needed to be. And I think that even though many people had warned about this for a long time, the underwhelming nature of America's response to this threat has really surprised even people who had been warning, who had been issuing alarms.

There is a thing called the Global Health Security Index, which ranks different countries according to their levels of preparedness for pandemics, according to 140 different criteria, based on regulations from the World Health Organization. And out of all the countries that were assessed, the United States has the highest score 83.5, a solid B. But if you look at how the country has actually reacted to the pandemic, I think we probably get something like an F. This nation that was meant to be the most prepared of all has really flubbed its response, and I think, to a degree, that has shocked even the most alarmed or pessimistic people who I'd spoken to before, in my earlier reporting.
