Donald Trump infamously said “Anybody that wants a test can get a test,” we now know that was a lie unless you work in the White House. After the president’s personal valet tested positive for coronavirus, Trump said people who work at the White House will be tested every day. NBC Seth Meyer’s talks about the hypocrisy in this new revelation:
“So trump doesn’t think we need that much testing. or at least he doesn’t think you need that much testing. He and everyone around him, of course, have a completely different standard… So ordinary Americans being forced back to work can’t get tested, but you and everyone around you can.”
“The point is not that the president shouldn’t get tested it’s that if he wants to force working people back into the economy prematurely in the middle of a deadly pandemic, he should make sure everyone else can get tested, too. But trump doesn’t actually care about that.”
