Little man can’t be wrong …Q: “Do you take responsibility for the lag in #coronavirus testing?” Trump: “No, I don’t take responsibility at all.”

REPORTER: “Dr. Fauci said earlier this week that the lag in testing was in fact a failing. Do you take responsibility for that, and when can you guarantee that every single American who needs a test will be able to have a test? What’s the date of that?”
TRUMP: “No, I don’t take responsibility at all because we were given a set of circumstances and we were given rules, regulations, and specifications from a different time — wasn’t meant for this kind of an event with the kind of numbers that we’re talking about, and what we’ve done is redesigned it very quickly with the help of the people behind me, and we’re now in very, very strong shape. I think we’ll be announcing, as I said, Sunday night. And this will start very quickly and we’ll have the ability to do in the millions over a very, very quick period of time.”
Okay, that’s some brazen lying, even for him. There were no regulations that prevented the Trump administration from rolling out tests sooner. That’s just made up. Plus, he’s been in office for three years. If he knew this could happen, why didn’t he change those nonexistent regulations sooner?
Trump straight up admitting he didn’t know his administration disbanded a global pandemic team inside the NSC.

Face it, this limp squash noodle will never take responsibility for anything.
And nice to know testing will happen “very quickly.” Be a little more vague, dude.
We’re on our own, folks.
As if you didn’t know that already.
