CNN’s Jake Tapper confronted Admiral Brett Giroir, the White House coronavirus testing czar, on Sunday over failures in the U.S. covid response and President Donald Trump “undermining” public health guidances.

Tapper pointed to a lack of mask-wearing and social distancing at recent Trump rallies, asking of the coronavirus response, “How is this not a failure, and how is President Trump leading us out of it in the right way, according to your own words?”

Girior said that he wants to make sure “people are empowered to know that they can slow the spread and change the course, they can save lives by doing the things we talk about, wearing a mask.”

He didn’t respond to the Trump rallies specifically but emphasized the importance of wearing masks if you can’t physically distance.

“What about the rallies?” Tapper asked. “Dave Matthews isn’t touring this year because of the risk to his fans. But President Trump is doing these rallies. The people are not wearing masks. These are super-spreader events potentially.”
