All of Trump’s Public Health Experts Should Have Resigned Months Ago
We begin with both Trump and Nancy Peloisi attacking Dr. Deborah Birx who has so far avoided being banished as other public health experts like Dr. Fauci have been. Pelosi said that since Dr. Birx is Trump’s appointee and the president spreads disinformation, she has no confidence in her. But Trump went further in a tweet today with “So Crazy Nancy said horrible things about Dr. Deborah Birx, going after her because she was too positive on the very good job we are doing combatting the China virus, including Vaccines & Therapeutics. In order to counter Nancy, Deborah took the bait & hit us, pathetic.” What in fact Dr Birx said was that the pandemic has reached a new phase and is extraordinarily widespread and into rural areas as well as urban areas. Dr. Irwin Redlener the Founding Director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness and a Senior Research Scholar at Columbia University’s Earth Institute joins us to argue that all of the public health experts working for Trump should have resigned en masse a long time ago as well as discuss the Stalinist nature of Trump’s White House where the mildest criticism or contradiction of the great leader gets you banished while only frauds such as Stalin’s Lysenko whose scientific quackery cost millions of lives, are listened to like Trump’s Nigerian doctor Stella Immanuel who believes that demon sperms are on the prowl. With 155,000 Americans having died from the coronavirus and 4.6 million infected, a figure that is 10 times lower than the likely number of infections, the deaths so far are undercounted and the toll will get much worse.
