On Thursday, MSNBC’s Katy Tur brought on former FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate for a discussion of how the United States is handling the deadly coronavirus pandemic. And when the lacked of preparedness in the U.S. was described, Fugate angrily stormed off the set.

Former Acting Medicare and Medicaid administrator Andy Slavitt brought up how ill-prepared U.S. hospitals are for the deluge of patients who will likely be arriving in the weeks to come as the number of infections increases. A headline shown at the bottom of the screen read, “NYC cases spike to over 3600.”Slavitt complained that Fugate’s recommendations were “not helpful,” inspiring Fugate’s angry response.
Removing his microphone, Fugate fumed, “I don't have time to listen to bullshit, people,” got up and walked away. Tur asked Fugate, “Craig, you want to sit down and respond to this?” But when Fugate didn’t respond, Tur said, “I guess Craig has left.”
