This is interesting coming from a member of Donald Trump’s administration, since other members, Kayleigh McEnany leaps to mind, went out of their way to push the fantasy land, “trust your instincts” “it’s your prerogative to wear a mask or not” philosophy. Deborah Birx recently testified before a congressional committee and she said “that tens of thousands of deaths could have been prevented after the initial phase of the pandemic if Mr. Trump had pushed mask-wearing, social distancing and other efforts to slow the spread of the virus.” New York Times:

“I believe if we had fully implemented the mask mandates, the reduction in indoor dining, the getting friends and family to understand the risk of gathering in private homes, and we had increased testing, that we probably could have decreased fatalities into the 30 percent less to 40 percent less range,” Dr. Birx testified, according to excerpts provided by the committee.

The committee’s interview with Dr. Birx was conducted on Oct. 12 and 13. In her testimony, she also lashed out at Dr. Scott Atlas, a former Stanford neuroradiologist who became an adviser to Mr. Trump and advocated for allowing the virus to spread through much of the population in order to let otherwise healthy people build up immunity against it.

She told the committee that Dr. Atlas had relied on incomplete information to draw dangerous conclusions that she felt could have long-term consequences for people who were infected with the virus and got sick.

“I was constantly raising the alert in the doctors’ meetings of the depth of my concern about Dr. Atlas’ position, Dr. Atlas’ access, Dr. Atlas’ theories and hypothesis, and the depths and breadths of my concern,” she said, referring to a group of doctors involved in the White House response who gathered regularly.

Interesting how their postures change when they’re no longer under Trump’s thumb. The image of Dr. Birx that will be forever burned in my mind is of her praising Trump to the sky for being “attentive to the scientific data,” which she attributed to his keen business acumen. Remember this profile in nausea?

The takeaway from this is that Trump is out of power now so Birx can tell the truth about what he could have done better. The problem with that is that we need experts who will tell the truth regardless of the politics of the situation. Maybe that isn’t possible to find anymore.

    • Obviously not. The picture if her standing behind trump and nodding her head like a puppet while he spewed his ignorant bullshit is burned into my mind.

  1. Yes, when Trump stood there and suggested trying the injection or drinking of disinfectants, and shining a light up one’s ass, she just sat there looking shocked. If she had just jumped up and said, ” No don’t do that! This man is crazy!” think how many lives could have been saved.

  2. There are whores in every profession. Medicine included. Unfortunately Birx and Atlas whored themselves to an idiot and screwed the nation royally.

  3. There are prostitutes in every profession. Medicine included. Unfortunately Birx and Atlas prostituted themselves to an idiot and screwed the nation royally.

  4. These mutherfuckers are serial killers. If a mob boss ordered tens of thousands of citizens killed we’d execute them in the gas chamber. No goddamn excuses. They fucking MURDERED PEOPLE. THE LAW IS A JOKE. THEY DESERVE TO ROT IN JAIL. Also leaving 140,000 children without caregivers. That would be parents. But because they are white, rich, & well connected….GODDAMN CRICKETS.
