Trump’s flunkies have been altering pandemic reports that tell the truth about Trump

Caputo & Alexander – Joined at the hip!

Political appointees at the Department of Health and Human Services have repeatedly asked the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to revise, delay and even scuttle weekly reports on the coronavirus that they believed were unflattering to President Trump.

Current and former senior health officials with direct knowledge of phone calls, emails and other communication between the agencies said on Saturday that meddling from Washington was turning widely followed and otherwise apolitical guidance on infectious disease, the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports, into a political loyalty test, with career scientists framed as adversaries of the administration…

Michael Caputo, a former Trump campaign official installed by the White House in April as the top department spokesman, said in a brief interview on Saturday that the person most involved in reshaping the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports was Paul Alexander, an assistant professor of health research methods, evidence and impact at McMaster University in Canada and an adviser Mr. Caputo hired to help with him on the science of the pandemic…

…Mr. Caputo and Dr. Alexander appeared to view the reports, which have presented dire new findings about the spread of the virus, as incompatible with the Trump administration’s push to move beyond the pandemic and present the country as on the upswing, officials said.

Trump and his fan club have no understanding of the value of transparency in a democracy. Most likely, I imagine it’s because they’re not supporters of anything like a democracy. You must obey! Good enough for 21st Century fascism.
