McEnany responds to ousted HHS official’s criticism of Trump: Sounds like he ‘hasn’t been paying much attention’

May 14, 2020 / By Joshua Nelson | Fox News

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Thursday reacted to ousted Trump administration scientist Rick Bright’s claim that the president was “dismissive” of a warning about the severity of the coronavirus outbreak.

“It sounds like Mr. Bright hasn’t really been paying that much attention at all,” McEnany told “America’s Newsroom.”

Bright, the former HHS official who filed a whistleblower complaint claiming he was removed from his post for disagreeing with the Trump administration’s response to coronavirus, said Thursday that officials at the Department of Health and Human Services were “dismissive” of his warning about the contagion and said that if the government doesn’t follow his guidance “2020 will be the darkest winter in modern history.”
