Trump blasts Birx after she warns coronavirus pandemic is 'extraordinarily widespread'

Source: Politico

President Donald Trump on Monday slammed White House coronavirus task force coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx after the public health official said the pandemic was “extraordinarily widespread.”

Trump’s attack comes shortly after top White House officials admonished House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for undermining trust in Birx.

“So Crazy Nancy Pelosi said horrible things about Dr. Deborah Birx, going after her because she was too positive on the very good job we are doing on combatting the China Virus, including Vaccines & Therapeutics,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “In order to counter Nancy, Deborah took the bait & hit us. Pathetic!”

POLITICO reported last week that Pelosi tore into Birx in closed-door negotiations with administration officials, saying the White House was in “horrible hands” with the public health expert leading the coronavirus taskforce. Pelosi continued her criticism of Birx on Sunday during an appearance on ABC.

1. This virus will hit rural communities hard.

Trump is doing his best to make sure people die. But it will be HIS voters that will bear a brunt.

The Sturgis Bike rally is on . Bikers for Trump are going to get this and spread it back to their communities. 250,000 are expected to ride in to SD this week. 9 days of uncertain hell for the locals of Sturgis, SD. Wonder how many will be social distancing and wearing masks? I hate to guess not many.

2. Ruh Ro. Scarfy has been a bad girl.

Now she's on the Orange Shitgibbon's shit list. Look for her to carry the can for whatever fuckup Trump can pin on her.

3. Even those that kiss his ass get killed for not kissing it enough.

In Trump's mind, her job is to say the numbers are low so his poll numbers will go up. News flash, his poll numbers will stay about where they are even if the actual or reported case count goes to zero by election day.

13. While kissing an ass that big, it's easy to miss

a few spots.

Correction: several spots.

4. Go Nancy

Democrats (and Republicans, get a spine!) need to step up and call it ALL out from now until November. Don't hold back - as long as you are telling the truth, shout it to the heavens.

Anticipate their corruption and every single time they fling poo, turn on the fan and let it hit them right in the face.

7. There shouldn't be a single reputable MD doing trump's COVID work.

Birx and Fauci should be long gone at this point. Let trump rely on his new Demon Sperm "doctor."

12. Personal loyality means you are expected to 100% lie for your boss.

99% will get you thrown under the bus - your professional credibility in tatters. Vindaman knew he couldn’t save his career, but he preserved his honor. Honesty really is the best policy.
