Anybody watching CNN special on Trump's Covid response?

We all know it was a complete cluster fuck. . . . It's interesting to hear insiders' take on it. . .

I have a difficult time taking Deborah Birx seriously in any form or fashion after she praised Trump as "attentive to scientific literature and details."

things down and test. Instead he touted a 15 point covid response pamphlet and Dr. Birx was right there with him. She was behind the podium with him explaining how important it was to wash hands and not touch your face, and that by not following these guidelines it was your fault if you catch covid and died. Well, I thought that's pretty harsh. The irony was that people on that stage were touching their face out of habit. I could see that was not sound advice, so I made the decision to shelter in place.
