“I will have to say, this experience has been a bit overwhelming.It has been very difficult on my family.I think what was done in the past week to my family — you know, they didn’t choose this for me. They’ve tried to be supportive, but to drag my family into this..”
Dr. Deborah Birx, the Trump administration’s Wuhan virus response coordinator, in the course of announcing her retirement, apparently out of pique for being justly hammered in the media and social media for violating her own guidelines over the holidays.
As the “Saved by the Bell” girls were indicating above, gag me with a spoon. It took everything in my power not to headline this post “Dr. Birx is an asshole.” I’m still sorely tempted.
She is the one who directly and arrogantly did exactly what she cautioned “the little people” not to do, as I wrote about here (item #4). How dare the woman play the victim, and especially how dare she play the “leave my family out of it!” card when it was she who involved her family by joining them in doing exactly what she said everyone else’s family—well, everyone but elected officials— couldn’t do. To make her family whining worse, it was her own family member that blew the whistle on her!
Birx went on to say,
“My daughter hasn’t left that house in 10 months. My parents have been isolated for 10 months. (My parents) have become deeply depressed, as I’m sure many elderly have, as they’ve not been able to see their sons, their granddaughters. My parents haven’t seen their surviving son for over a year, These are all very difficult things.”
Oh, cry me a river, you despicable fraud. You and people like you are the ones who have imposed this lockdown and engaged in fearmongering for ten months. You are estopped from complaining, and the inconveniences and sacrifices you must make, or were supposedly making, do not entitle you to special privileges.
From the National Review’s comments:
There was a time when such a person would issue a public apology accepting full responsibility and then later they would be found dead in their bath tub. So while she was ordering the rest of us to cower-in-place in our hovels she was busy planning a big family gathering. Absolutely shameful.
Bingo. And these are the “experts” the Trump administration has been listening to.
To hell with them.
