What happens when your engineering team is shafted by the President?  Google is finding out.  President Trump announced nationally that Google’s subsidiary, Verily, had built a web site through which COVID-19 patients could find out where to get tested.  There is only one problem.  There is no public web site — not yet anyway — and the small test site that Verily was shaking down was quickly overwhelmed by concerned citizens.  Fortunately for Google, the bad PR from this cock-up was quickly focused on the President rather than on Google.  It was a typical shoot-from-the-lip Trump announcement — unchecked, gratuitous, designed to look like he was in control.  It was a sadly typical outcome — a disaster.  One wonders when President Trump will learn to check facts before speaking.  It might be too late for him in this election year.
