Tim from New York called in to my SiriusXM show to defend Donald Trump’s response to coronavirus, focusing predictably on Trump’s claim that he shut travel from China to stop the virus. When I debunked that and asked him about Trump and testing, he claimed Trump did ramp up testing adequately. And when that was debunked, and after I raised other issues, he eventually switched to…Bill Clinton.
It’s a classic Trump cult call. Let me know your thoughts.
