Like many in Trump’s orbit, Birx determined to throw her decades-long fame away to accommodate Donald Trump’s incessant calls for for flattery. It’s disgusting when he had cupboard officers do it, however from a physician for a lethal pandemic? Unforgivable.
Regardless that Birx knew that Trump was filled with lies and was downplaying all of the dangers, and although she knew that these lies would show lethal, that is what she stated one 12 months in the past at this time:
He has been so attentive to the main points and the information, and his means to research and combine information has been an actual profit throughout these discussions about medical points.
That is an excessive amount of BS for even Trump supporters, who by no means attempt to argue that Trump is attentive to particulars. It additionally didn’t save her from being yelled at, which she admits was a priority when she went on these information reveals. On the CNN particular, she talks about how she was all the time being “watched” to justify why she was gushing. Deplorable.
Such a cowardice is why she sat quietly whereas Trump spouted off full nonsense about “injecting disinfectant” into folks’s lungs to kill the virus. Even Lysol had to come out with a statement pleading with folks to not inject their merchandise.
Regardless that Trump made these statements whereas continually pointing to Birx and looking out proper at her, she sat there quietly. She was terrified that she could be fired or yelled at, so she let this orange menace spew nonsense with out one ounce of pushback. CNN posted her response whereas Trump was talking. She appeared down, hoping he would cease addressing her. This was her likelihood to save lots of lives, and he or she didn’t.
I don’t really feel sorry for Birx. She is just not a sufferer. She was complicit and deserves all the scorn that can comply with her the remainder of her days. Politicians mendacity is one factor, however docs have to be held to the next normal. Positive, she’s no Ronny Jackson, the drunken train wreck of a White Home doctor who falsely claimed Trump was 6 foot 3 and ripped, however he by no means had a lot of a fame. Till final 12 months, Birx really did.
Hope it was price it.
