Birx Becomes Political Football

She’s getting hit from both sides. White House coronavirus task force coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx was called “the worst” by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and “pathetic” by President Donald Trump. In his first public insult of the immunology expert, Trump objected to Birx calling U.S. coronavirus infections “extraordinarily widespread,” complaining it was a reaction to Pelosi’s critique that Birx didn’t challenge presidential misinformation. Dr. Anthony Fauci supported Birx’s assessment, while presidential challenger Joe Biden promised to spend Monday mornings working with top disease experts, “not insulting them on Twitter.”
