Birx, just Another Loyal Trump Appointee

Some very peculiar observations this Sunday

“More than a dozen U.S. researchers, physicians and public health experts, many of them from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, were working full time at the Geneva headquarters of the World Health Organization as the novel coronavirus emerged late last year and transmitted real-time information about its discovery and spread in China to the Trump administration, according to U.S. and international officials.”

“A number of CDC staffers are regularly detailed to work at WHO in Geneva as part of a rotation that has operated for years. Senior Trump-appointed health officials also consulted regularly at the highest levels with the WHO as the crisis unfolded, the officials said.”

And yet Dr. Birx covers for Trump and pitches the following in a quick move to place blame, anywhere but on Trump.

“Asked early Sunday about the presence of CDC and other officials at the WHO, and whether it was “fair to blame the WHO for covering up the spread of this virus,” Deborah Birx, the State Department expert who is part of the White House pandemic team, gently shifted the onus to China, and the need to “over-communicate.””

Medicynical note: No matter the spin it turns out it wasn’t the W.H.O. or even China. Trump willfully ignored briefings and information from the W.H.O., ignored information from China, ignored alarming intelligence briefings from his own appointees and put forth his ignorant spin–it will go away like a “miracle”, it will disappear like “magic”.

Trump wasted two months and didn’t prepare. It’s as simple as that.
