The thing about Dr. Birx is I don’t even give a shit about how she handled the ridiculous disinfectant comment Trump made. She definitely handled it badly, but in that moment, I can almost forgive her in light of the pure ridiculousness out of the comment.
The comment that cemented Dr. Birx in the Trump lackey hall of fame for me was this:
Dr. Deborah Birx, a respected physician and experienced diplomat who seemingly serves as a voice of reason in her role as coordinator of the White House’s coronavirus task force, raised a lot of eyebrows on Thursday with her effusive praise of President Donald Trump as “attentive to the scientific literature and the details” during an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network.
“He’s been so attentive to the scientific literature and the details and the data,” Birx said. “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.”
Fuck right off Birx. May you hang your head in shame, nestled in your Hermes’ scarf for the rest of your days for trying to prop up such a con artist. Trump can’t even spell scientific literature, much less pay attention to it.
