Woodward told CNN's Jeff Zucker Tuesday as part of the network's Citizen by CNN conference.  Woodward, the famed Watergate journalist who's covered nine administrations, said he had 'never seen anything like' Trump bungling's of the coronavirus pandemic, with 200,000-plus Americans dead as of Tuesday.  Journalist Bob Woodward said Tuesday that historians are going to look at the Trump era and ask, 'What the F happened to America in 2016, 2019 and 2020?'  Bob Woodward sat down with CNN's Jeff Zucker as part of the Citizen by CNN conference on Tuesday.
