‘Are You A Doctor?!’ Kellyanne Conway Snaps At Reporter Over Coronavirus Questions
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway snapped at CBS News’ Paula Reid on Friday after the reported noted that the Trump administration had yet to stop the spreading of the Coronavirus even after they claimed that it was “contained.”
“You talked about how the administration initially had this contained, but during that time, why didn’t the administration send out more tests and work to get hospitals prepared?” she asked. “Even today, the state of Florida is saying they can’t test everyone, per the administration’s guidelines, because they don’t have enough tests!”
Conway did what anyone in the Trump administration would do – she got defensive and didn’t answer the questions she was being asked.
Conway tried to pivot to say that the government was “ramping up” its production of testing kits, but Reid wouldn’t take her answer at face value.
“But why now, why didn’t they do it while it was contained?” she asked.
Then Conway went on to claim that the virus is being contained.
“It is being contained,” Conway replied, then turning the question back on Reid. “Do you not think it’s being contained?”
“The virus is spreading throughout the country,” Reid shot back.
