Kathy Griffin says that she is currently in a novel coronavirus (COVID-19) “isolation ward room” after exhibiting symptoms for the contagious respiratory virus.
The comedian, 59, shared a selfie from the room on Instagram on Wednesday, calling out Donald Trump in the process for a lack of available COVID-19 tests in the United States.
“He’s lying,” Griffin claimed in her caption, in response to a recent tweet from Trump, in which he said that the U.S. has provided more testing than any other country.
“Just reported that the United States has done far more ‘testing’ than any other nation, by far!” Trump wrote in the tweet. “In fact, over an eight day span, the United States now does more testing than what South Korea (which has been a very successful tester) does over an eight week span. Great job!”
