President Donald Trump spent Tuesday morning watching television and commenting on what he watched, as doctors and nurses beg for more supplies to battle the coronavirus pandemic.

The president reacted at 7:27 a.m. to thanks from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, which Fox News reported shortly after 6 a.m., and he then tweeted out a response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who gave a lengthy interview to MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that began shortly after 8 a.m.

The president’s tweets prompted some to wonder whether he ought to get to work.
