Ex-FEMA Chief Storms Out Of MSNBC Interview Over Coronavirus Response: ‘I Don’t Have Time To Listen To Bullsh*t People’


We are staring down the barrel of the unknown.

California governor Gavin Newsom projected that over half of the state’s population will be infected with the virus over an eight-week period. New York City mayor Bill de Blasio went on record saying is NYC “two weeks or three weeks away from running out of the supplies we need most for our hospitals,” revealing the city needs 3 million N95 masks, 50 million surgical masks, 15,000 ventilators, and 45 million each of surgical gowns, coveralls, gloves and face shields to help combat coronavirus.

Americans are realizing just how unprepared this nation is for a pandemic of this degree, and tension is high.

That tension was put on full display during an MSNBC segment between two former Obama administration officials, resulting in one of them abruptly walking off set.

Former FEMA administrator Craig Fugate argued that the states needs to lead the charge in response efforts, whereas Andy Slavitt, former Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services administrator, believes local and federal governments should act in partnership.

Things got dicey when Slavitt said Fugate’s position is “not helpful.”

“I don’t have time to listen to bullshit people” is a line I plan to incorporate into my lexicon. Along with the word lexicon.

The two eventually kissed and made up on social media following the incident. Well, I hope they didn’t really kiss. That is not helpful for anyone.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
