    We were prepared with a pandemic response team. Guess who fired them just to undo something Obama did?

    You mean rolled them into a larger and much better funded team capable of handling biological weapons and not just normal germs?

    Yep, because they were incompetent. Which seems to be a trend at the cdc, and meets with my expectations based on experience with them.

    incompetent is having a plan drawn up by the National Security Counsel and completely ignoring it even though meetings we now know about warned of the virus weeks before the actual outbreak

    “Our ruling: False” . . . the task force did not issue direct recommendations for the state to buy any more ventilators…there will always be the possibility of the situation growing worse than people or governments have prepared for , but LEADERSHIP in those times is what makes the difference , trump sat on his tiny hands and downplayed the coming pandemic and now more people will die than if he would have canceeled a couple of those golf trips or maga rallies to pay attention to what the nsc guidelines said and what intelligence reports were already warning about.… Read more »
