Kathy Griffin was recently isolated in the hospital, after experiencing coronavirus symptoms, and the post she shared from her hospital bed criticizing Donald Trump has lit up social media. Griffin shared a pair of images on Instagram, with one of her view from the bed. The other is a selfie revealing that she's wearing a mask for protection.
She also shared a screen shot of Trump's tweet, wherein he stated, "Just reported that the United States has done far more 'testing' than any other nation, by far! 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!" In her caption of the post, Griffin hit back at Trump, saying, "He’s lying. I was sent to the #COVID19 isolation ward room in a major hospital ER from a separate urgent care facility after showing UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms. The hospital couldn’t test me for #coronavirus because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions. #TESTTESTTEST."

"But yet some celebrities and our government are able to get tested without showing any symptoms!
"A friend of mine has been seriously ill for the past week and was denied last for the test, and now she finally got tested two days ago, but she was told it can now take up to 7-10 days before results, so basically after she has recovered she will know if she had the virus! This is ridiculous!"

"[Kathy] if you are REALLY in so much ‘pain’ then how can you even have the energy to focus on Trump/be on social media? Narc."

"We all need to stand together at moments like this people look up to you as I do. Let’s beat this together!! God bless us all"
"Please, please get better!!! The world needs you! I need you!!"
"Highest risk first! Hating on the president doesn’t help right now."
"This is terrible. But thank you for letting people know this. Kaiser isn’t or can’t test people who have some symptoms. Testing people would save lives!"
