President Trump on Thursday boasted about a 'terrific meeting' he had with governors about coronavirus coordination efforts. But it wasn't drama-free. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee reportedly clashed with the president over his leadership during the crisis.
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee reportedly clashed with the president over his leadership during the coronavirus crisis.Associated Press , which obtained a recording of the call. Washington is among the states rushing to secure hospitals beds, masks, ventilators and other critical supplies as the number of those infected with the coronavirus starts to overwhelm hospitals. During the White House briefing, Trump did obliquely reference his clash with Inslee, but downplayed it, saying:"Maybe one person was a little tiny bit of a raising of a voice, a little wise guy." On the Brady comparison, Trump said Inslee was not criticizing Trump's ability to quarterback a nation during a global pandemic. Instead, Trump heard the Brady comment as flattering. "Yeah, he meant that in a positive way. We need Tom Brady," Trump said."We're gonna do great. He meant it very positively." After the press conference, Inslee responded on Twitter, saying he would have mentioned Seattle Seahawks star quarterback Russell Wilson, but"no one can be" Wilson. I would have said Russell Wilson...but no one can be Read more: NPR
Coming from the Jay 🐍 Plummer of Governors, that means nothing. This dude is not even a practice squad Gov. It will be nice come November to see him become Jay 🐍 OUTSlee. Emergency response starts local and expands to state and federal as emergencies are declared. The USA is a republic of sovereign states so authority for each jurisdiction is at the local and state level, Fed help us now authorized but Governors need to call their own shots
jastoharb I 💚 GovInslee As expected from our grotesque embarrassment of an 'only I' president. Where are the tests, the ventilators, the masks and other PPE? WineScoutJAS Doesn’t he mean Russell Wilson? Pass the Defense Production Act! Trump is more Ryan Leaf than Tom Brady 😏 Problem: Trump is incapable of responsibly leading the USA. More than ever, he daily proves that he is not fit to be president. JoeBiden 2020! 🇺🇸
Highest approval rating yet We need a Tom Brady but have a Ryan Leaf... Power hungry leftist governors upset that the President doesn’t want to act like a tyrant.
Fact Check: Trump wildly exaggerates 1918 flu mortality rateThough estimates of the mortality rate for the 1918 flu pandemic vary widely since records from that period are incomplete, there are not any credible estimates as high as 50%. Scholars estimate the mortality rate is between about 2% and 20%. Trump has given more news to this fake news outlet than any president in history. Cnn should pay Trump for all the contents they get from him. Fact check: real Dictators shutting their entire country down from COVID-19... Fake wannabe US dictator doesn't know if he's coming or go'in...$$ President Trump is an Absolute GENIUS.
We got Cleo Lemon as a quarterback, he ain’t no Brady. Trump is more like Ryan Leaf. What happened to NPR? Remember when we listened to NPR for straight news? Who changed NPR? i'm a little teapot cracked and stout fill me up and i slip right out. Trump is more like Jonny Manziel than Tom Brady. We need a Russell Wilson ... cmon Jay.
This whole discussion is missing the point. The fact that govt is absent in COVID response is a feature not a bug. GOP dogma is that govt is bad and must be destroyed. That's exactly what's playing out here. The COVID response is exactly the GOP playbook. Incompetence by design. RepublicanHolocaustCrimesAgainstHumanity TrumpGenocide 45DoesNotCareIfYouDie
Does Trump live on another plane of reality? Leaving the states to fend for themselves in a global pandemic is beyond non presidential.
FACT CHECK: Trump Compares Coronavirus To The Flu, But It Could Be 10 Times DeadlierPresident Trump has repeatedly compared the coronavirus to the flu. But the coronavirus is new, seems to be about twice as contagious and has a higher hospitalization rate. Here are facts about how the two differ. Resignation or removal, enough. You, in this very tweet, compared it to the flu.
pricklyeater Trump wants all the credit with none of the responsibility. Taxasaurus sighting love u jay NPR. No Possible Contention. And I’m paying these cretens. I think his response was to tell us he'd talked to Tom Brady the other day(why?) and he's a good guy. For all 2500 cases in washington? You cant handle in Inslee?
For anyone who trusts a single thing NPR has to say, I have a ski condo to sell you. It is in Aruba. That’s my governor, Jay “The Snake” Inslee saying it like it is. 🔥🔥🔥 All these governors (minus Mississippi’s) seem to be doing a really good job with handeling the pandemic throughout their prospective states. Now only if we had a federal government that could help them out...
Bad npr stay out of this. I want news not political sqaubbles.
Fact Check: US has done more coronavirus tests than South Korea, but not per personFact check: President Trump says the US had done more coronavirus testing than any other nation. While the US has overtaken South Korea in total numbers of coronavirus tests administered, it has conducted far fewer tests per capita. CNN, Trump is always never good enough.. always finding a fault. How are your ratings per capita CNN? CNN is non essential and should just stay home for the safety of the Nation. CNNnotRealNews more american than south korean population
We need him to be someone other than himself......ain’t gonna happen. His heels are set! 8 more months. WOW I definitely wouldn't want this guy as my Gov. scary I wish tom brady was President, at least he works hard and is intelligent. Tom Brady How about Russell Wilson AlZeidenfeld Today: “Look, it’s a very bad situation. We haven’t seen anything like it, but the end result is we’ve got to get back to work, and I think we can start by opening up certain parts of the country.”
He wants President Trump to be governor and President.... and now donny claims he is the tom brady of the response. maybe last years tom brady. say one good thing about Trump, NPR. I dare you. NPR...did you get your funding from the COVID-19 bill?
Fact check: Costco did not recall Kirkland Signature toilet paperTime for a fact check: A Facebook post shared widely claims Costco is recalling toilet paper due to coronavirus concerns. That is false. ❌ did it mean those already flushed or ....? FAKEBOOK.
I am so proud of our governor, at least someone in government has a backbone. Facts , related to science. Do you mean Tr*mp...he...LIED? Gasp! That can’t be true. What a shock. It seems so unlike him. By boasted, you could be parsimonious and just say 'lied.' They call him the King of Bullshit Mountain/ If we want it we can have the Crown.
Trump couldn’t tell the truth if American lives depended on it....oh, wait a minute....it does! And he still won’t. It’s a mental illness You need to pay-back the $75M in pork finding or start being more objective and less partisan, you paid hacks !! Look at the word Could! $75 million to you anti-Americans instead of those who REALLY need it for the health crisis? You pigs. I hope the President eventually gets you completely defunded!
Trump has said before that a few Governors are in disagreement with him. This guy is one. The real question is did the nurses at Kirkland kill those people on purpose?
Rebuffed: Watch Trump’s own medical expert fact-check him at WH coronavirus briefingAs Pres. Trump is under fire for spreading misinformation about the coronavirus, medical experts are increasingly correcting the President in public – including at his own White House press conferences. In this report, MSNBC anchor Ari Melber reports that Pres. Trump largely canceled the longstanding tradition of press briefings – part of his efforts to 'undercut the free press' – which the White House only restored amid the pandemic. The briefings now include experts, such as Dr. Anthony Fauci, clarifying and correcting assertions Trump makes from the lectern. Pulitzer-Prize Winning Columnist Eugene Robinson says Fauci is a key “trusted voice” for the nation, while Melber applies a Jay-Z lyric to Fauci's and Trump's dynamic – one is 'just the facts' while the other just 'adjusts the facts.' Eugene_Robinson WENEEDVENTILATORS Eugene_Robinson Don’t send this to Trump. We need this man. Eugene_Robinson Look the stupid Pompeo !
Just another lie trump is letting people die by not using the Defense Production Act He needs to be removed and replaced with a competent person. FAKE NEWS MEDIA is the virus!!! Glad we have a governor with a backbone here in Washington state! By leadership, Inslee means lack thereof by trump. This is the biggest blunder in history by any president in our history. Trump will be forever remembered for this. TrumpLiesPeopleDie
Defund NPR completely. NPR hates Americans.
FACT CHECK: Testing Should Take Place Wherever There Are Cases Despite Trump's ViewPresident Trump said he doesn't think coronavirus testing needs to happen in entire states in the Midwest. But there are cases in all 50 states — and that means there's a vital need to test aggressively wherever the disease is spreading. Who gives a turd what he thinks AS a lawyer I claim the intelligence is a whole construction of millions of pieces of (?), that's it. My kid has symptoms going on 2 weeks now. I know at some point I’ve been exposed bc I’m a nurse. They won’t test him here in whittier😞 but if I had money like celebrities he would be tested.
