Atlas’ boss ain’t be happy, don’t worry!
Members of the White House coronavirus task force are praising a move by Twitter removing a misleading tweet from top Trump adviser Dr. Scott Atlas that told Americans masks don’t work.
The tweet’s removal was a “relief” among some task force members, Dr. Deborah Birx told friends over the weekend, according to a source, blah, blah, blah…
“Masks work? NO,” Atlas wrote, followed by a series of misrepresentations about the science behind the effectiveness of masks in combating the pandemic.
The tweet and its subsequent removal comes as coronavirus cases spike across the US and other members of the task force have taken to the airwaves to urge Americans to heed basic mitigation strategies, including mask usage and social distancing.
Sad, but true. You can pretty much always find some tame flunky to reaffirm fear of peer-reviewed science, sound medical analysis that puts the lie to the recommendations of corrupt turds like Trump.
Although the chants of death and “liberty” are warmed up and walking the halls of government and an increasingly piss-poor judiciary — a few voices still live within the corridors of government, willing to give a shout about the Emperor and his new clothes. The haberdashery retains its usual space inside the Republican Party.
