Former FEMA chief Craig Fugate had a meltdown on MSNBC, storming off the set of Katy Tur after declaring that he didn’t have “time to listen to bull—, people” after another guest criticized his comments involving the coronavirus pandemic, according to a report.
Andy Slavitt, the former acting administrator of the Centers for Medicare Services, was disagreeing with Fugate about how much the feds should be involved in the response to the outbreak, The Hill reported.
Andy Slavitt, is the former head of the ACA and now leftist bomb thrower, who has been on Twitter writing egregious threads about hundreds of thousands or even millions of Americans dying from coronavirus.
COVID-19 Prep Update- March 14:
Last night I was on with state & local officials around the US well into the night. By March 23 many of our largest cities & hospitals are on course to be overrun with cases.
I am going to prepare a memo for them. I will share highlights here.1/

Fugate, who served along with Slavitt during the Obama administration, argued that Washington should allow the states to have a large role in the response.
“The myth of a single person in charge taking control and running this is a myth,” Fugate said. “This is going to be dealt with on the front lines and local and state levels, and each state is going to be addressing this unique to their systems.”
He added: “I’ve always believed the best way the federal government can support governors is to get out of their way, get them funding, use CDC to give guidance.”
Slavitt disagreed with Fugate’s remarks.
“What your other guest is suggesting here is not helpful,” he said. “We need a great partnership between the federal and state government.”
At that point, Fugate got up, uttered the bleep-worthy comment and left.
He later apologized to MSNBC’s Katy Tur on Twitter.
“At the point, I’m not helping, time to step back. Never was good at the talking head thing anyway,” he wrote. “This is too critical of a time to let emotions get in the way. My apologies to you and your audience.”
