Senator Lindsey Graham appeared tho ABC’s The View on Thursday, during which, co-host Joy Behar challenged him to come up with just three things that Trump “did right” in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Trump has a massive ego, and he rated himself a ten for the way he’s handling the crisis. He insists that he’s done, quote, everything right unquote. So, tell me, sir, what has he done right? Name three things.”

She obviously didn’t expect him to be able to do it, but Senator Graham did so easily, robbing her of the gotcha moment she had hoped for.

After that gotcha moment failed, Behar pivoted to Trump’s decision to halt funding the World Health Organization (WHO). She asked why now in the middle of a health crisis, as opposed to after the crisis is over. Graham explained that the WHO needs a change of leadership. “I think they conspired with China to downplay the nature of the virus, that they reported all through January there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission,” he explained.

“The money that’s being suspended will go to other people throughout the world to deal with health issues. The WHO has great scientists, but I’ve lost confidence in the leadership.”
