Pelosi tells Trump’s Covid-19 adviser – ‘I have no confidence in you’ and calls Fauci a ‘ national hero’
The Democratic House of Representatives Speaker was back to her usual tiresome tirades, calling the President and his advisers out for ‘spreading misinformation’ regarding the coronavirus.
“Deborah Birx is the worst. Wow, what horrible hands you’re in,” she reportedly exclaimed in her childish narrative.
And further comments came from her this Sunday morning when Pelosi told ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday morning when asked if she had confidence in Birx.
“I think the president has been spreading disinformation about the virus and she is his appointee so, I don’t have confidence there, no,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi said that all Birx does is too bring Trump ‘good news’ and not highlight what is going wrong with the virus in the USA.
The New York Times – who Trump has labelled ‘fake news’ continuously – even backed Pelosi saying that ‘While Fauci has been subjected to months of attacks from members of the Trump administration, Pelosi’s missives against Birx are among the first leveled by a prominent Democrat’ therefore excusing Pelosi.
Birx, an infectious disease expert who served as the Unites States’ global AIDS coordinator under Presidents Obama and Trump, defended herself shortly after during an appearance on CNN.
“I have tremendous respect for the speaker and I have tremendous respect for her long dedication to the American people and I think it was unfortunate that the New York Times wrote this article without speaking to me,” she said.
The physician, who studied under respected task force expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, also pushed back on the report’s characterization of her as “pollyannaish.”
“I have never been called pollyannaish or non-scientific or non-data driven and I will stake my 40-year career on those fundamental principles of utilizing data to really implement better programs to save more lives,” she continued.
