Dr. Debbie Birx just talked about her experience with the virus task force. While Sleepy Joe Biden, now the prohibitive favorite to be the Democrats’ presidential nominee, has ignorantly shot his mouth off like a attention-seeking school child, adults like Dr. Birx have gotten important work done. In that work, they’ve helped protect hundreds of lives.

In his attempt to score partisan points, Biden said “We should not ‘fall back on xenophobia. Labeling COVID-19 a foreign virus does not display accountability for the misjudgments that have taken thus far by the Trump administration.” Presumably, Sleepy Joe isn’t talking about shutting down travel with China or Europe. Unfortunately, the man who will be the Democrats’ nominee has made himself look like an idiot on those fronts:

What was Biden saying? Days before the Trump administration finalized the travel restrictions, in an editorial Biden warned against “reactionary” travel bans, claiming it “would only have made things worse” with Ebola. Biden then accused the president of “demonstrated failures of judgment.”

It’s apparent that Sleepy Joe, the Democrats’ soon-to-be-nominee, prefers the virus get to the United States unchecked so it can kill hundreds, if not thousands, of people. Buffoons think that way. Leaders like President Trump react when crises arise. Then medical experts like Dr. Fauci praise leaders like President Trump:;

“Clearly early on we made a travel ban with regards to China that was a very smart move right there because what that did was prevent a major influx from China,” Dr. Fauci added.

How has President Trump led? Let’s ask Dr. Birx for her opinion:

“I’ve been a lab person. I’ve been a vaccine developer. I’ve been a doctor. I’ve been all those things,” said Dr. Deborah Birx, another expert on the White House task force. “But I have never in my lifetime of government service worked with the CDC in a way that every time a state or local government calls and says, ‘I have this barrier, I need a modification to the regulations.’ That has happened almost daily.”

That’s what it means to work at ‘Trump speed.’ In other words, President Trump acts like a businessman, clearing obstacles and optimizing performance. That wouldn’t happen if a lifelong politician were running the show. Thank God we have a businessman at the helm, not Sleepy Joe. I’m thankful for experts like Dr. Birx, who is doing an outstanding job. Finally, let’s be thankful for Dr. Fauci:

    Even Donald Trump has his limits, as a couple of recent press events showed. Even I was at first deflated a bit, but then I realized that the press would again crucify him no matter what he said.

    Then I read accounts like this and many other accounts from the doctors and researchers. He’s accepting what they are telling him, doing what needs to be done which is probably well beyond his instincts to otherwise protect the economy. As he often says, “We’ll see what happens.”

    One thing I do know: whatever happens, it would have been worse under a Hillary Clinton administration.

    Gary, facts. Trump put a lifetime career politician in charge of the response. Had Trump not picked Pence for VP, his career might have been back to talk radio, but Trump showed his minimal regard for the worry by picking Pence.

  • Gary Gross says:

    Pence doesn’t think like a career politician. He’s had a reform mindset from the start. When he took office, one of the first appointments he made was appointing Mitch Daniels as president of Purdue University. Since taking over as Purdue’s top dog, Purdue has had 9 straight years of no tuition increases & 9 straight years of no increases for books.

    If you want to dismiss that as being dismissive, give me more people who are dismissive in that way.
