You panicked about the market, panicked about COVID, panicked about the ventilators, panicked about PPE, panicked about ever going out again.

Joseph, you didn’t panic about anything.

Kernen fired back:

What good is that? What good is it?

One hundred thousand people died. One hundred thousand people died, Joe, and all you did was try to help your friend the president. Every single morning on this show. You abused your position.
