Many tweeters agreed with the assessment, below.
But not in the way that McEnany was likely hoping.
Instead, her critics argued that the Trump administration’s slow and bungled response to the outbreak had indeed never been seen before:
Unprecedented, but in a way that you absolutely didn’t mean

Unprecedentedly bad response. More deaths than Vietnam, which Trump also didn’t help in.

Unprecedented is right. No response to anything has been this bad ever.

It’s unprecedented because he screwed up so bad. He should resign now.

The only thing unprecedented here is that for the first in history we have a president that accepts no responsibility for anything. https://t.co/6CRNBIFA9E

Some might say unpresidented.

Yep 60,000 plus dead in less than 3 months. Unprecedented indeed.

Oh, his response is unprecedented all right, but not in a good way

UNPRECEDENTED VIRUS RESPONSE FROM DEAR LEADER, WHO SLAYED THE INVISIBLE ENEMY WITH HIS OWN BARE, LARGE HANDS. TRULY A DEMON SLAYER WHO STANDS BETWEEN US AND THE ABYSS. https://t.co/3amDwydd8K

Trump can’t have it both ways….
Be the Leader of the Country but “don’t take responsibility at all”
— Samir (@PackersFavreFan) April 30, 2020
You can’t have it both ways. Lying and misinforming the public when Trump speaks and contradicts his health experts.
Oh wait, that’s exactly what he’s been doing for the past three months. Lying to the nation as the body count soars.
62,000+ Americans are dead thanks to Trump.
