Birx was behind the effort to keep data from the CDC

"Birx spearheaded the administration's recent decision to have hospitals send information on coronavirus patients to a new federal database, a source involved with the process told CNN, bypassing the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an agency Birx has often complained about to colleagues..."

https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/17/politics/birx-coronavirus-task-force-political-skills-reputation/index.html

She's a conservative Republican. I thought maybe she was one of the good people because of her history of HIV work, until I found out that she sat on the board of an anti-gay right-wing group whose focus was the "innocent victims" of HIV. That is extremely loaded, dangerous language. The "innocent victims" are people with HIV who are not gay men.

8. The president is highly qualified to analyze the data

ďHeís been so attentive to the scientific literature and the details and the data. I think his ability to analyze and integrate data that comes out of his long history in business has really been a real benefit during these discussions about medical issues because in the end, data is data and he understands the importance of the granularity."

11. Well...

... I've never trusted her... her words and "charts" are presented in a way to praise Trump-Pence. She hurries over unflattering stuff and promotes falsehoods. She may not be completely happy with her president, but I think she's loyal to him.

... also, I've noticed many here on DU could tell she was "off" somewhat - from the moment she arrived on the scene.

12. Jealous of Fauci, she just cut him out of the loop

and eliminated her competition. She's large and in charge now, and she's gonna flaunted well earned bonus loyalty points with Trump for the cheap price of selling her professional honor and integrity.

Now that she's assured that Trump has sole possession of the hospital statistical data, there is nothing stopping him from altering and manipulating the info to suit his agenda.

The only saving grace is Trump's lack of credibility which makes him inherently distrusted. So whatever crapifying he tries to do to the numbers, no one is going to believe anything he says.

18. They can manipulate people dying in isolation, their families not being with them

in their last moments. They can manipulate morgues being filled and having to use refrigerated trucks to hold bodies. All of those events are highly abnormal, they canít be hidden.

Thousands died needlessly because of this act of pure recklessness, and thousands more are going to lose their lives before this pandemic is over. This is grossly irresponsible, and Birx and Trump should both be charged for this.
