Dr. Birx Says Trump Administration was Being Fed ‘Parallel’ COVID Information

Looks like there’s plenty more Monday morning quarterbacking going on now that Trump’s gone.

During the last year of the Trump presidency, the coming of a worldwide pandemic threw a major wrench into the gears of our government.

This was the first time in over 100 years that something like this had happened, especially on such a large scale.  Those who were tasked with reacting to the situation did so in a scattered and flailing manner, and by the time our government had gotten everyone on the same page, it turned out that they were all reading a different book.

Now, one of the doctors who was integral to the creation of the nation’s COVID-19 response is insinuating that someone outside of the White House coronavirus task force was feeding the President some dubious information on the subject.

Dr. Deborah Birx, the Trump White House coronavirus response coordinator, said in a CBS interview released on Sunday that Former President Donald Trump had been reviewing “parallel” data sets on the coronavirus pandemic from someone inside the administration.

“I saw the president presenting graphs that I never made,” Birx told Margaret Brennan on CBS News’ “Face The Nation.” “Someone inside was creating a parallel set of data and graphics that were shown to the president.”

Birx, who announced her retirement as President Joe Biden took office last week, said she doesn’t know the identity of the person who gave the president different information. She added that there were Covid-19 deniers within the Trump administration.

And there was more…

“There were people who definitely believed that this was a hoax,” she said. “I think the information was confusing at the beginning. I think because we didn’t talk about the spectrum of the disease, everyone interpreted what they knew.”

Birx, like her colleague Dr. Anthony Fauci, appears to be far more willing to speak out now than during Trump’s time in office – which doesn’t necessarily reflect well on anyone involved.
