Kathy Griffin Claims She Can’t Get Coronavirus Test in Emergency Room, Blames Trump and Pence

Kathy Griffin comes home sick from hospital, couldn't get COVID19 test

Comedian Kathy Griffin claimed Wednesday that she cannot get a coronavirus test after being admitted to an emergency room for what she described as “unbearably painful symptoms.”
The Hollywood star is blaming President Donald Trump, falsely claiming that he is “lying” about the increase in tests being performed in the U.S.
Griffin snapped a selfie from her hospital bed and blamed her hardship on “restrictions” allegedly placed by the CDC, which she personally blamed on Vice President Mike Pence..
“He’s lying,” she wrote, in reference to the president’s earlier tweet in which he stated that the U.S. has significantly ramped up coronavirus testing. “I was sent to the #COVID19 isolation ward room in a major hospital ER from a separate urgent care facility after showing UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms. The hospital couldn’t test me for #coronavirus because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions.”

Just reported that the United States has done far more “testing” than any other nation, by far! In fact, over an eight day span, the United States now does more testing than what South Korea (which has been a very successful tester) does over an eight week span. Great job!

Griffin’s claim about the president is false.
President Trump’s assertion that the U.S. has significantly increased COVID-19 testing has been backed up by Dr. Deborah Birx, who is the coordinator of the White House’s coronavirus task force.
“Probably by today, we will have done more tests than South Korea did in eight weeks, in the last eight days,” Dr. Birx said during a Fox News town hall this week. “In the last eight days, we’ve done more testing than South Korea.”
President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have stated repeatedly that people without symptoms should not be tested for coronavirus to prevent demand from overwhelming the healthcare system.
Kathy Griffin has a history of verbally attacking President Trump and his family.
She infamously posed with a mock decapitated head of the president in 2017. The gruesome photo led to her being fired from CNN as a co-host of the network’s annual New Year’s Eve bash. The comedian claims that she was put on a no-fly list for two months after the incident and was virtually blacklisted in Hollywood.
But the following year, she was back at it, tweeting “fuck you” to First Lady Melania Trump and calling her a “piece of shit.”
She also called Donald Trump, Jr. and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle “two assholes.”
Breitbart got something right! I did attack Don Jr and Kimberly and they are indeed two assholes!
