John Oliver lambastes Trump’s handling of coronavirus as 'debacle'

On Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus was the focus of Oliver’s ire. For starters, Oliver took issue with the appointment of Vice President Pence to head the coronavirus task force, not only because of Pence’s history managing the HIV crisis in Indiana, but also because Oliver believes that experts, not Pence, should be the ones informing the public. But health officials have been banned from speaking about the virus without Pence’s approval.
