The White House has been making daily briefings to update the American people on any updates with the Coronavirus. Some have been critical of the White House’s messaging. Former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino joins Tony Katz to give her perspective.

“I’m reluctant to criticize the White House response, even back when it was the Obama administration, because it’s totally different from the outside looking in. We don’t know what kind of information they’re getting. We don’t know what the intel was. I think it was uneven at best… We’re in the middle of a major health crisis. There was a line that if you think you’re being too cautious then you’re doing it right.”

Dana and Tony also discussed how COVID-19 is going to affect the 2020 election. Primaries across the country are being postponed. If the pandemic lasts until November, how does it impact voters?
