The Trump administration’s handling of the Coronavirus situation has been absurd, despicable and deadly.
Despite what Fox News might report, there has been nothing in the way of clear and responsible leadership since the outbreak, and so far 217,000 Americans have died. In South Korea, a densely populated nation of 51 million people, there have only been 344 deaths since their first reported case in January. So, what went wrong? Director Alex Gibney (Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, Taxi to the Dark Side) tackles that question in Totally Under Control, a two-hour highlight reel of the Trump administration’s bungled COVID response. The film features career-ending testimony from high-ranking, there-when-it-happened medical officials who had to be recorded in secret, for reasons that should be pretty obvious at this stage. Check the trailer above, and make sure you catch the full flick when it drops October 23.
