I know Deborah Birx doesn’t deserve another post, but this is so fucking predictable:
“So Crazy Nancy Pelosi said horrible things about Dr. Deborah Birx, going after her because she was too positive on the very good job we are doing on combatting the China Virus, including Vaccines & Therapeutics,” Trump tweeted. “In order to counter Nancy, Deborah took the bait & hit us. Pathetic!”
The President’s tweet seemed to be a response to Birx’s interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, during which the doctor warned that the U.S. was in “a new phase” of the virus.
“I want to be very clear: What we are seeing today is different from March and April,” Birx told CNN anchor Dana Bash. “It is extraordinarily widespread.”
Though Birx’s comment was a plain contradiction of Trump’s repeated insistence that most of the country is doing “very well,” she did not actually criticize Trump or the administration during the interview.
If, as anyone with two eyes and a brain could have predicted, Birx will be ignored by Trump as soon as the obvious truth clashes with his fantasmagorical bullshit, he’ll need to replace her. Paging Dr. Demon Semen to the White House Task Force, STAT!
