Trump's sporty new website developed by Google was news to Google.

So, is there a part of this crisis Trump CAN'T get wrong? So far, it does not appear so. "Its not nationwide, its not made by Google, and, until Trump dropped the ball, it apparently wasn't even going to be publicly available." Doesn't Trump at the helm make you all warm and fuzzy?  What ELSE has this moron gotten wrong?  I miss Obama. 

 

 

The announcement baffled Google higher-ups, a source from within the company told WIRED. While another company under the Alphabet corporate umbrella, the health-focused Verily, is currently building a triage tool to direct people to Covid-19 testing (the disease caused by the virus), at this point it’s nowhere near the scale the president described. Shortly after Trump’s announcement, Google’s communications and public affairs team posted a statement from Verily on Twitter going into more detail:

“We are developing a tool to help triage individuals for Covid-19 testing. Verily is in the early stages of development, and planning to roll testing out in the Bay Area, with the hope of expanding more broadly over time.”

So in short: It’s not nationwide, it’s not made by Google, and, until Trump dropped the ball, it apparently wasn’t even going to be publically available. The head of communications at Verily, Carolyn Wang, told the Verge that this trial website was originally being engineered exclusively for health care workers.

My money says no, there is not. His record of screw-ups will be perfect.

I'm wondering if any trump supporters are going to notice how trump's incompetence is going to cost and affect their lives?

Especially when his ineptness has helped to fuel this crisis.
