Comedian Kathy Griffin – who’s a vocal critic of President Donald Trump – revealed on social media this week that she was in an “isolation ward room” in a “major” California hospital with claims that she exhibited signs of the COVID-19 virus. However, many individuals on social media aren’t shopping for her story and imagine it might be an excessive stunt to slam the POTUS.
On Wednesday, Griffin posted a selfie on Instagram that featured her carrying a masks in a hospital mattress, and within the caption she blamed President Trump for the dearth of COVID-19 checks. The put up was a response to Trump’s tweet the place he introduced that the United States has completed way more testing than every other nation on Earth.
“In fact, over an eight day span, the United States now does more testing than what South Korea (which has been a very successful tester) does over an eight week span. Great job!” wrote the POTUS.
In response, Griffin wrote in her caption, “He’s lying. I was sent to the #COVID19 isolation ward room in a major hospital ER from a separate urgent care facility after showing UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms. The hospital couldn’t test me for #coronavirus because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions. #TESTTESTTEST.”
However, many followers weren’t shopping for Griffin’s claims, with one individual questioning why Griffin didn’t have any oxygen as a result of it’s fairly normal with such a critical respiratory situation. Other critics questioned why Griffin could be in a COVID-19 isolation ward with out testing optimistic for the virus.
Another Twitter person wrote that in case you are within the hospital and aren’t being examined for COVID-19, that’s as a result of the docs “see no need to test you.” Others couldn’t imagine that Kathy Griffin would take the time to blast the President from a hospital mattress.

“Even on a hospital bed, you take the time out to hate on President Trump! Well… that’s certainly some commitment,” wrote the skeptic.
There have been even accusations from followers that Griffin was the “Jusie Smollett” of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the COVID Tracking Project, there have been 432,655 checks completed within the United States as of March 26th, with 65,512 popping out optimistic. Even although Griffin claims she couldn’t get examined because of CDC restrictions, these have been lifted way back.
