And this while people are dying during a pandemic.

President Donald Trump once derailed a meeting of the White House’s coronavirus task force to rant for 45 minutes about Fox News host Tucker Carlson, a former aide to Vice President Mike Pence has claimed.
Olivia Troye — a former member of the task force who earlier this week endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden with a scathing denouncement of Trump’s handling of the pandemic — said Trump was focused on getting someone to set Carlson straight over his criticism of then-White House counselor Kellyanne Conway while pressing issues about the public health crisis were still to be discussed.
“I think the only thing that matters is what, at the end of the day, people are saying about him,” Troye said of the president in a video released Friday by the Republican Voters Against Trump group.
“While the rest of us are sitting in the room, I saw people looking down at the floor, looking down at the desk or the table in front of them or their shoes thinking, ‘We have actual items on this agenda that we really need to discuss and time matters right now but instead we’re going to go resolve your concern about whatever some news anchor said off the cuff that upset you,’” Troye said.
“That is who President Trump is. That’s what he cares about,” she added.
Let’s face it Trump does not care one little bit about Kellyanne Conway, he was upset because she was his representative and he felt that disrespecting her was like disrespecting him.
And fighting back against criticism is far more important to this megalomaniac than protecting the people of America.
