Leadership During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Listen in on this Morning Joe conversation between Willie Geist and Mike Barnicle about government leadership amid the coronavirus pandemic, after President Donald Trump warned Americans to brace for a “hell of a bad two weeks” ahead as the White House projected there could be 100,000 to 240,000 deaths in the U.S. from the pandemic even if current social distancing guidelines are upheld. “The definition of leadership, I think, has now changed in this country, especially when it comes to: Who is the government, who represents us, who leads us….The government is Dr. (Anthony) Fauci. The government are the ER nurses and the doctors and hospitals. The government are the EMTs who knowing the danger, the police officers, knowing the danger—the potentially lethal danger—go at the virus to help people, to help us American citizens.” Hear more of the discussion now.
