Trump and his legion of fools ignored science and obstructed the CDC at every turn 🐷
"Last week, Kyle McGowan, a former chief of staff at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and his deputy, Amanda Campbell, described for the New York Times the slow-motion tractor trailer pileup they witnessed at the White House during the COVID-19 outbreak."
"Donald Trump and his legion of fools ignored science and obstructed the CDC at every turn. You'd almost think they were trying to spread the coronavirus -- some of the outside advisers the administration brought in were aiming for just that -- but then you realize they're also just a bunch of dummies who can't do anything right. And you seethe with rage because more than 300,000 have died -- so far -- as a result of their criminal bungling."
"This passage especially stands out as grotesque:
Often, Mr. McGowan and Ms. Campbell mediated between [CDC Director Dr. Robert] Redfield and agency scientists when the White House's guidance requests and dictates would arrive: edits from [White House budget director Russell] Vought and Kellyanne Conway, the former White House adviser, on choirs and communion in faith communities, or suggestions from Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter and aide, on schools.
"What the hell does Ivanka Trump know about schools ... or, well, anything? If CDC wanted bad advice related to education, the Trump administration already had Betsy DeVos, who was at least a Senate-confirmed Cabinet member. Please allow us the illusion of democracy when staffing your administration with incompetent partisan hacks."
