‘Morning Joe’ Wouldn’t ‘Insult a Doctor’ by Asking Them About Trump’s Attack on Coronavirus Testing
MSNBC’s Morning Joe didn’t book a doctor to discuss President Donald Trump’s apparent attack on Coronavirus testing on Friday because the President was so obviously wrong. Trump complained that there are more cases of the disease due to more testing.
Morning Joe showed footage of Trump decrying testing.
“We would’ve booked a doctor for this segment, but it is so frighteningly obvious that the President is uttering complete stupidity and is flying in the face of everything that this virus can do to this country,” co-host Mika Brzezinski said.
“When you have a test, yes, you have a case, and then you know about the case, Mr. President, and you’re able to isolate the case and contact trace the case. Yes, when you test, you have a case.”
“And it seems to me, Donald Trump doesn’t want to know about cases. Donald Trump doesn’t want to know about cases in this country. Perhaps those numbers make him look bad for his presidential second term ambitions. I don’t know. Willie [Geist], how do you explain this?”
“I don’t know how to explain it,” Geist said. “I’m glad we didn’t insult a doctor by bringing him or her on to try to explain this.”
