    Congress has been holding hearings on the Trump administration's inadequate response.

    Carolyn B. Maloney on Twitter: "This is disgusting. We are facing a pandemic, and the administration is already threatening to deny patients a Coronavirus vaccine?!
    Sec. Azar must immediately retract this statement, and reassure the American people that their health and safety come FIRST. #Coronavirus https://t.co/uexSXpsTkF" / Twitter
    - A Rep: D-NY-12
    and
    Chuck Schumer on Twitter: "Any emergency Coronavirus funding supplemental Congress approves must include provisions ensuring:
    1—Pres. Trump can't transfer the funds to anything other than Coronavirus
    2—Vaccines are affordable & available to all who need it
    3—State & local governments are reimbursed https://t.co/MPCis40bpq" / Twitter
    - a Senator: D-NY
    noting
    Michael McAuliff on Twitter: "‼️ Azar refuses to promise a coronavirus vaccine will be affordable for anyone:
    "We would want to ensure that we work to make it affordable, but we can't control that price, because we need the private sector to invest.. Price controls won't get us there."" / Twitter

    noting
    Michael McAuliff on Twitter: "Here's the clip of Azar not assuring Rep. Schakowsky a covid-19 vaccine will be affordable to all. https://t.co/Z8aNd4wLWj" / Twitter

    Michael McAuliff on Twitter: "Another revealing bit. Schakowsky asked if we've funded all the R&D. Azar: "No, that's not accurate. For instance Gilead has a product Remdesivir that was originally NIH-funded basic research I think out of the University of Alabama, but they've carried forward with development."" / Twitter

    Michael McAuliff on Twitter: "In case anyone's forgotten, Azar was the president of Eli Lilly, a member of the board of directors of a pharmaceutical lobby group, and ran a strategist/consultant firm to the biotech and healthcare industries. https://t.co/jgfHeDXlWu" / Twitter

    Michael McAuliff on Twitter: "Sen. Patty Murray, top D on Senate Health Committee: "Let’s be clear, public health, not corporate profits, must be the number one focus of our coronavirus response. A vaccine that’s just for rich people won’t do much to protect public health.” https://t.co/pWYpFklvoQ" / Twitter

    Michael McAuliff on Twitter: "Rep. Kennedy asks alex Azar if he agrees with Trump that the covid-19 will go away with the heat, but his time runs out. Chair Eshoo asks if Azar wants to answer anyway. He doesn't. "I didn't thinks so," she says. "You're doing a great job for the president, Mr. Secretary."" / Twitter

    Michael McAuliff on Twitter: "Schakowsky asks Azar if Trump is right coronavirus is contained here.
    "The virus in the United States has been in a contained situation to date, but that can change.. we expect more cases, and we expect that we'll see at least limited community transmission in the United States."" / Twitter

    Ben Adler on Twitter: "Rosenstein, btw, is a lifelong Republican https://t.co/lMq6RSs9ys" / Twitter
    noting
    Marshall Cohen on Twitter: "Rush Limbaugh and right-wing fringe sites are attacking Dr. Nancy Messonnier, a top CDC official handling the coronavirus response, because she is Rod Rosenstein's sister. They're spreading the lie that she's part of the deep state and trying to tank the markets to weaken Trump." / Twitter

    Erica Werner on Twitter: "Total coronavirus cases in US now: 60. 3 from Wuhan, 42 Diamond Princess, 15 from other travelers, spouses. https://t.co/Tp7dvFzy93" / Twitter
    The Diamond Princess is a cruise ship where some of the passengers caught the virus.


    Michael McAuliff on Twitter: "Pelosi calls Trump’s Covid-19 response meager, anemic, too late. https://t.co/2CQne2hP6l" / Twitter

    Michael McAuliff on Twitter: "Watch McConnell's reaction as he's asked if he has confidence the administration is all on the same page in dealing with coronavirus. (spoiler alert: he hands off to Sen. Blunt) https://t.co/MhF1cB10pU" / Twitter


    Michael McAuliff on Twitter: "Sen. Kennedy asks Health Sec. Azar how long to create a coronavirus vaccine. Azar says could have one within a YEAR. Kennedy notes the DHS secretary just testified it would take a month and a half. "That's never happened in human history," says Azar." / Twitter
    noting
    Michael McAuliff on Twitter: "Kennedy responds: "Maybe you ought to talk to the secretary of Homeland Security before he spreads that too far."" / Twitter
    noting
    Michael McAuliff on Twitter: "If you prefer to see one cabinet secretary brutally rejecting the strange claims of another cabinet secretary on coronavirus. https://t.co/E13sTLhuI7" / Twitter


    Michael McAuliff (@mmcauliff) / Twitter - Lots of other stuff from that reporter, and it's evident that the Trump Admin is in disarray about its response to the virus.
