Donald Trump had a meltdown on Friday and lied non-stop during a press conference which saw the stock market drop as he spoke. His contempt for the press was also very clear even when they were just asking non-political health-related questions.
Reporter Yamiche Alcindor asked Donald Trump about when those who need a COVID-19 coronavirus test will be able to get one. Instead of answering her question Donald Trump dismissed her and doubled down saying he hasn't heard of any American with coronavirus symptoms not being able to get it.
This of course was a lie because Dr. Fauci of the NIH said earlier that the demand for tests in general was not being met at this time!
Does Donald Trump have dementia? Isn't he aware of anything that's going on? It's no surprise the stock market responded negatively today as none of the things Donald Trump says is reassuring.

My Q: When will everyone who needs a coronavirus test be able to get a test?— Yamiche Alcindor (@Yamiche) March 20, 2020
Pres Trump: “No-one is talking about this except you, which doesn’t surprise me."
My Q: What about people w/ symptoms who cannot get a test?
Trump: "Yeah, well, OK. I’m not— I'm not hearing it."
Here’s the video of President Trump saying he hasn’t heard of Americans with symptoms of the coronavirus not being able to get tested.— Yamiche Alcindor (@Yamiche) March 20, 2020
Note: Dr. Fauci today clearly said the demand for tests is not being met at this time. pic.twitter.com/GP6d8XyHwo
