In a series of interviews aired by CNN, Dr. Deborah Birx, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and other Trump veterans tell of their own pandemic battles. Variants and eased restrictions are pushing cases up around the United States.

In interviews broadcast on CNN Sunday night, former President Donald J. Trump’s pandemic officials confirmed in stark and no uncertain terms what was already an open secret in Washington: The administration’s pandemic response was riddled with dysfunction, and the discord, untruths and infighting most likely cost many lives.

Dr. Deborah L. Birx, Mr. Trump’s coronavirus response coordinator, suggested that hundreds of thousands of Americans may have died needlessly, and Adm. Brett P. Giroir, the testing czar, said the administration had lied to the public about the availability of testing.

The comments were among a string of bombshells that emerged during a CNN special report that featured the doctors who led the government’s coronavirus response in 2020.

Dr. Robert R. Redfield, the former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, accused Mr. Trump’s health secretary, Alex M. Azar III, and the secretary’s leadership team of pressuring him to revise scientific reports. “Now he may deny that, but it’s true,” Dr. Redfield said in an interview with Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent. Mr. Azar, in a statement, denied it.

Dr. Stephen K. Hahn, the former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, said his relationship with Mr. Azar had grown “strained” after the health secretary revoked the agency’s power to regulate coronavirus tests. “That was a line in the sand for me,” Dr. Hahn said. When Dr. Gupta asked him if Mr. Azar had screamed at him, Dr. Hahn replied: “You should ask him that question.”

But it was Dr. Birx, who has been pilloried for praising Mr. Trump as being “so attentive to the scientific literature” and for not publicly correcting the president as he made outlandish claims about unproven therapies, whose disclosures may have been the most compelling.

As of Sunday, more than 548,000 Americans have died from infection with the coronavirus. “I look at it this way,” she said. “The first time, we have an excuse. There were about 100,000 deaths that came from that original surge.”

“All of the rest of them,” she said, referring to almost 450,000 deaths, “in my mind, could have been mitigated or decreased substantially” had the administration acted more aggressively.

In what was one of her first televised interviews since leaving the White House in January, she also described a “very uncomfortable, very direct and very difficult” phone call with Mr. Trump after she spoke out about the dangers of the virus last summer. “Everybody in the White House was upset with that interview,” she said.

After that, she decided to travel the country to talk to state and local leaders about masks and social distancing and other public health measures that the president didn’t want her to explain to the American public from the White House podium.

Dr. Gupta asked if she was being censored. “Clearly someone was blocking me from doing it,” she said. “My understanding was I could not be national because the president might see it.”

Several of the officials, including Dr. Anthony S. Fauci — who unlike the others is a career scientist and is now advising President Biden — blamed China, where the virus was first detected, for not being open enough with the United States. And several, including Dr. Redfield and Admiral Giroir, said early stumbles with testing — and the attitude within the White House that testing made the president look bad by driving up the number of case reports — were a serious problem in the administration’s response.

And the problems with testing went beyond simply Mr. Trump’s obsession with optics. Admiral Giroir said that the administration simply did not have as many tests as top officials claimed at the time.

“When we said there were millions of tests — there weren’t, right?” he said. “There were components of the test available but not the full deal.”

Nice speculation, but consider this:
If we had preserved the brain of James Buchanan and allowed him to remain president in perpetuity as a brain-in-a-jar until this day we never would have had any pandemic situation at all. Also internet connections would be fater and more reliable.
You that I speak the truth.

Maybe the death toll could have been lower if Birx and Fauci had objected to the politicization of the virus response by the media and elites. If you tell people you can't wear a mask and go to work but you can wear a mask and protest systemic racism, don't be surprised if people don't take you seriously.

tRump killed 100k tops

400k woulda died anyway

Nobodies perfect and it was worth it to pwn the libs
>>
>>816632
More like he killed 400k.
If the US had a proper lockdown, just paid everyone 80% of their salary to keep the economy running, and then heavily enforced masks, the death rate would have been a lot lower, but Trump ran a massive cover up and the Trump Virus destroyed America.

And we probably would have still come
out further ahead financially instead of pretending that the pandemic was a hoax and would magically go away after the election.

It’s a good thing tRump and his family for vaccinated in secret back in January and continued to downplay the effects on the economy and the average American.

I really don't understand why some enterprising (((ambulence chasing sheister))) hasn't filed a class action lawsuit against Trump on behalf of the families whose loved ones died due to his criminal negligence.

Because Trump didn't force sick people into nursing homes knowing it would kill bunch of old people.

There's a reason 5 states account for 40% of all covid deaths in the US, and there's a reason they all just also happen to be run by Democrats.

If you mean total instead of per capita, highly likely, since 8 Neanderthal shithole red States combined can't even equal the population of 1 major US city. Per capita deaths, the red States run by zombie drooling cultists far exceed the blue states.
>>
>>817461
>If you mean total instead of per capita, highly likely
The sheer staggering amounts of deaths those 5 states have render per capita comparisons moot. Per capita, in this context, is literally only used by the media as damage control. for Democrat states. No amount of hand wringing and propaganda will change this.

Whitmer, Cuomo, and Newsom especially facilitated eldercide and you make excuses for them by trying to weave a smokescreen out of disingenuously presented statistical nonsense. You are evil.

Ok, Mordecai. Sorry, but more Palestinians died at the hands of you chosen ones last year than covid nursing home patients. Hell more British civilians died in the Zionist terrorist bombings from 1946-48.

How many of the dead out of your Dear Leader's 500,000 dead were from elderly patients moved to nursing homes? A whole couple thousand? Omfg, that's worse than the holocaust!

I mean yeah 500,000 is more than 200,000 dying of typhus

Because of the scope of the lawsuit the only thing that can fit it is charging Trump and everyone in the administration involved in undermining the response with negligent homicide.
Don't forget, we have a tape of Trump admitting in private he knew how bad Covid-19 was but then lied about it to the public in order to keep the stock market inflated.
>>

If only there was a coordinated national response instead of a massive cover up.

And the fact him and his entire family got secretly vaccinated in January while downplaying the vaccine so his rich buddies could cut the line.
>>
And now the Trump Virus is here to stay! Best legacy of a presidency to purposely kill hundreds of thousands of people - and then get vaccinated in secret
>>
>>821426
Well, it is something to be proud of if you successfully kill off 500,000+ of your own citizens - more than the combined deaths of all American soldiers in WW1, WW2, Vietnam and Korea in just 1 year! The GOP isn't nicknamed "Trump's Death Party" on a whimsical fancy.

I am restricted on face book for another 30 days for sharing my surgery picture, while this anti Trump thread shows just how inept people have become. It was never about a cold virus. It is about blood. The media wont uncover the truth because many elites hide this drug use of Andrenochrome.

You could've just told us that you don't understand how basic statistics work.

Funnily enough people would listen, but then get sick and tired about Trump gloating where he'd claim he single handedly saved the US.

The death toll that took Trump a year to get to Biden doubled in two months.

We are truly living in Bidens America...

Really. It was over 500K under Trump. It's over 1M now? Or are you just a product of a red-state education, you inbred trailer dweller.
>>
>>822308
Have you ever seen a Trump cultist who understood even 8th grade mathematics, let alone statistics?
>>
>>816213
Except the riots and shit weren't hitting critical mass until summer. We had mask refusal at day 1 and the trump followers also doing their own (maskless) protests by June.

Protests were going to happen no matter what you did.
>>
>>817405
Perhaps it has to do with the President title. For example only two guards who got fucked over in the jan. riot are suing him for less than 100k each.

Also another obstacle is proving any other person in that position would have prevented your family member from directly dying from the disease given what was known. If your loved one was going around saying fuck masks all day while we had no clue about how long it lasted on surfaces, well tough shit.
