Sports radio giant Mike Francesa blasted President Trump on Monday, criticizing his administration's handling of the coronavirus outbreak and lack of medical equipment in the nation, according to Politico.
The radio host, who came out as a Trump advocate during his 2016 presidential campaign, accused him of not providing enough personal protective equipment, or PPE, to New York City, the epicenter of the U.S. outbreak.
"We're watching one thing happen in our city on the 11 o'clock news every night. We're watching people die, and now we know people who died. And we're not seeing one or two people die now in our neighborhood. We're seeing them die by the tens and twenties by the day," Francesa said.
Francesa referenced MyPillow founder Mike Lindell's appearance during the Monday Rose Garden news briefing, where he gave a speech telling Americans to focus on religion and encouraging people to "get back in the word, read our Bibles and spend time with our families."
Lindell previously pledged to manufacture masks and hospital gowns to donate to hospitals and medical facilities.
"So don't give me the MyPillow guy doing a song-and-dance up here on a Monday afternoon when people are dying in Queens," Francesa added. "Get the stuff made, get the stuff where it needs to go and get the boots on the ground! Treat this like the crisis it is!"

The story seems to be picking up traction because he was a Trump supporter.
Screw him. Blame the mayor and the governor.
Hes never been a Trump backer. Just another NY leftie.
Loud mouth Mike’s beef is with the mayor and the guv. They failed to have the state prepped for this.
EFFF him... who had a crystal ball. i am sure he blamed Obummer too for not being ahead of H1N1. I am sure he’ll blame Obummer for not leaving behind a stockpile of pandemic supplies for the next guy too, right?
I’ve seen him blast Trump before. First time I’ve heard him called a supporter.
Sports radio giant ??
I saw an episode of Ancient Aliens on Giants, How tall is he?
A sports radio jock sniffer weighs in - this is hugely important.
Sports radio giant? Is that like the tallest midget in Norway?
I live in the area where he is listened to on WFAN. I can say that Mike Francesa is more disliked than liked. He is an arrogant arse that rubs his co-workers and listeners the wrong way.
What else wou he like the fedgov to fill warehouses for, just in case black swan event happens? Radiation suits?
I’m so sick and tired of the complaining.
Can you imagine people whining like this during World War 2? or media people with their hate speech carrying on like they’re doing?
Giant of what?
How many cities, let alone states, let alone countries has this idiotic loudmouth ever run and why should anyone pay any attention to anything he has to say?
‘Lindell previously pledged to manufacture masks and hospital gowns to donate to hospitals and medical facilities.’
is he not going to do it now...? and if he is, why put this in the article...?
Never heard of him...
Sports radio giant?
That’s got to be the ultimate oxymoron.
Men that get wealthy talking about other men playing with balls...is there ANYTHING they don’t know?
Exactly. He should stick to sports commentary cuz he sure doesn’t know anything about how government works.
