Dr. Birx, the scarf lady, claims President Trump could have done more with COVID. In response, Dr. Atlas claims Dr. Birx is trying to rewrite history.
FOX News reports:
Former Trump COVID special advisor Dr. Scott Atlas slammed Dr. Deborah Birx for her reported testimony to congressional investigators as “an Orwellian attempt to rewrite history,” defending his work on the Trump COVID-19 task force, and telling Fox News that history’s “biggest failure of public health policy lies directly at the hands of” officials who recommended lockdowns during the early months of the coronavirus pandemic.
Birx testified before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis earlier this month, saying that officials in former President Trump’s White House did not take steps to push mask-wearing, social distancing and other mitigation steps that could have prevented thousands of COVID-19 deaths.
Birx also reportedly slammed Atlas, saying he advocated for letting COVID-19 spread through the population to reach herd immunity. The New York Times reported Birx testified that she repeatedly raised her concerns about Atlas’ positions and theories to other doctors on the task force…
…”It is an Orwellian attempt to rewrite history to blame those who criticized the lockdowns that were widely implemented for the failure of the lockdowns that were widely implemented,” he said, adding that Birx’s recommendations “were implemented by governors throughout nearly the entire nation during 2020.”
“Those policies failed to stop the dying, failed to stop the infection from spreading, and inflicted massive health damage and destruction, particularly on working class and lower-income families and on our children,” Atlas told Fox News. “History’s biggest failure of public health policy lies directly at the hands of those who recommended the lockdowns and those who implemented them, not on those who advised otherwise. Period.“
Dr. Birx worked with lying Dr. Fauci to undermine President Trump. These two are the two people who encouraged President Trump to shut down the economy for 15 days. Of course, we all now know that was a lie. Birx and Fauci wanted to shut down Trump’s economy for good.
