Trump Rages At Dr. Birx For Delivering Bad News On COVID Surge: ‘Pathetic!’

President Donald Trump on Monday lashed out at Dr. Deborah Birx after the White House coronavirus task force physician warned Sunday that the U.S. was in a “dangerous new phase” of the pandemic.

Birx warning came after House Speaker Nanci Pelosi criticized the senior scientist for not telling Americans the truth about the stage of the pandemic.

Trump responded to Birx comments with a blistering tweet attacking “crazy” Nancy Pelosi and calling the Birx comments “pathetic.”

“So Crazy Nancy Pelosi said horrible things about Dr. Deborah Birx, going after her because she was too positive on the very good job we are doing on combatting the China Virus, including Vaccines & Therapeutics,” Trump tweeted. “In order to counter Nancy, Deborah took the bait & hit us. Pathetic!”

Birx admitted Sunday that the virus was more widespread than the administration has been suggesting, and suggested that family members wear face masks indoors in multigenerational households.

“What we are seeing today is different from March and April,” Birx said. “It is extraordinarily widespread. It’s into the rural as equal urban areas.”
