President Donald Trump has stuck to his tradition of incessant whining during the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak. During an appearance this week on Fox News with Sean Hannity, he complained that he was having supposed problems with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, but he didn’t even mention her by name. Instead, he just complained about “the young, a woman governor, you know who I’m talking about, from Michigan.” Whitmer publicly responded to Trump’s belittling on Twitter and insisted that she just needs tangible assistance for the people of her state. It’s time for the political attacks to stop, she added.

As she put it:

‘Hi, my name is Gretchen Whitmer, and that governor is me. I’ve asked repeatedly and respectfully for help. We need it. No more political attacks, just PPEs, ventilators, N95 masks, test kits. You said you stand with Michigan — prove it.’

Trump has insisted that his administration is supposedly doing great things in assistance of states around the country who are struggling through their own localized Coronavirus outbreaks — but concurrently, he’s demanded that governors go out on their own to find crucial medical supplies like personal protective equipment that could mean the difference between life and death for healthcare professionals exposed to the virus. That has left locales bidding against each other in the race to get crucial equipment. In one particularly egregious example out of Texas, the city of Houston placed a bid for heavy-duty masks that worked out to $5 per mask where normally, each mask cost just 50 cents.

Trump has gone so far that he’s mocked the idea that locales around the country really need medical equipment like ventilators at all. Despite thousands and thousands of hospitalizations from the Coronavirus in New York City alone, during the same appearance on Fox News this week with host Sean Hannity, Trump said he didn’t believe that New York really needed the thousands of ventilators that they’ve been after. (Coronavirus is a respiratory disease.)

MSNBC host Chris Hayes suggested in response:

‘This is monstrous and people will die.’

Trump seems unfazed.
