Andy Slavitt is a former White House official who advised on the response to COVID.
He also blames Trump for the way his Administration dealt with it.
This kind of exaggeration means you can immediately see we’re dealing with a liberal.
Trump did what he thought was right, and he took those decisions after considering the information he was given.
But Slavitt doesn’t see it like that, and lays out three errors he thinks Trump made.
Here’s the interview.
Here’s those three supposed errors, so we can break them down.
It’s now common knowledge that for most people, COVID is a mild flu and nothing else.
Some even question whether there is such a thing as COVID, but that’s another story.
Besides, if it really was so potent, we wouldn’t be seeing states like Florida and Texas opening back up and suffering no consequences.
So Trump was right to play it down.
The second was his- his quashing of dissent. As I- as I laid out in the book that comes out, early in this pandemic in February, they sent out orders to the Department of Health and Human Services for 45 days they were not even allowed to talk to the press simply because Alex Azar wanted to say the expression that things were going fine but could change rapidly. They- they really and that whether it was that or Nancy Messonnier or Tony Fauci, anybody that disagreed with the narrative the president wanted was squashed.Breitbart News
There’s nothing wrong with this either.
Trump was the President, and if he decided what the narrative was going to be, then that was his choice.
Besides, Tony Fauci has no credibility left after all those emails came out, so if Trump chose a different path than what Fauci wanted, that can only be a good thing.
And then the third was, I think, really almost extra credit was taking the divisions in the country and playing- playing into them. And I think that sort of the populist nature- being a populist during a pandemic is really not a great combination because you’re going to have to make some tough decisions. You’re going to have to make people unhappy. And I think Trump saw in his base a stirring of anti-mask characterizations and other things, and he played into those things because I think it felt like a different route.Breitbart News
This is just liberal insults, with no substance at all.
So there’s nothing to address there.
As for the masks, it’s our right not to wear masks and to oppose their use.
The fact liberals get so angry about that reflects badly on them, not us.
In Slavitt’s case, he’s got a book coming out, so he’s clearly trying to get sales by criticizing Trump.
And that says it all!
