The tweet’s removal was a “relief” among some task force members, Dr. Deborah Birx told friends over the weekend, according to a source with knowledge of the conversation…

Birx also told friends fighting the virus is “hard enough (without Atlas).”

She also suggested the task force is frustrated by Atlas’ ability to find obscure information, label it as data and “present (it) to the President as scientific evidence,” an almost insurmountable challenge.

“If he likes the sound of it, he believes it,” Birx has said of Trump.
