Trump coronavirus adviser Scott Atlas urges Michigan to 'rise up' against new Covid-19 measures

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)White House coronavirus task force member Dr. Scott Atlas criticized Michigan's new Covid-19 restrictions in a tweet shortly after they were announced Sunday evening, urging people to "rise up" against the new public health measures.

"The only way this stops is if people rise up," Atlas said. "You get what you accept. #FreedomMatters #StepUp"

His message -- which runs counter to the consensus of public health officials -- is likely to fuel new tension between the White House and Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, whom federal and state officials announced last month was the target of an alleged domestic terrorism kidnapping plot.

Responding to Atlas' tweet Sunday evening, Whitmer told CNN's Wolf Blitzer, "We know that the White House likes to single us out here in Michigan, me out in particular. I'm not going to be bullied into not following reputable scientists and medical professionals."

29. Really neither

He is just a lying piece of crap. He most certainly meant violence.

And I hope his medical career craters.

...and, until then, this guy has the megaphone and will continue to use it to convince the credulous that itís their patriotic duty to fight science.

20. They dig those with heavy machinery now.

It's easy burying hundreds together, much more efficient(the nazi's perfected that).

Stay inside if you can...don't go out...let them flail around on each other and stay out of it.

Our doctors and nurses will have to deal with them(sooo incredibly sorry for that but...)the best way we can help is stay healthy.
and stay out of the hospitals unless your volunteering.

16. Their whole pro-virus thing is to make it harder for Biden

to beat the epidemic. Trump realized months ago that Biden would win, so he stopped meeting with the Task Force and he hired Atlas.

Last edited Mon Nov 16, 2020, 09:11 AM - Edit history (1)

want American killing American. Trump and his crew know they are finished and violence is their only recourse now. Trump and crew should face sedition charges when they are finally escorted out of the WH.

on edit: don't all doctors still have to take the Hippocratic Oath? If so shouldn't this doctor be stripped of his ability to be a doctor and in his case a doctor in name only?

"First do no harm"?

How can someone encourage spreading disease, attack perfectly acceptable public health measures, and maintain a medical license?
