One of the saddest, and funniest, stories I’ve read all year. It’s not news that Birx has been on a national tour of sorts, stopping by universities and other hot spots in hard-hit states to deliver a local forecast on COVID. But it was news to me that the White House didn’t send her on the tour.
She just sort of … left, according to CNN. Packed up and hit the road. It’s not even clear to me after reading whether her travel expenses are being paid by the government or if she’s footing the bill herself.
Allegedly she got tired of being lectured about her own specialty, infectious diseases, by some rando radiologist whom Trump plucked from the C block on Fox News. So she’s running her own one-woman task force road show now.
