Covid-hypocrisy: Dr. Birx Travelled For Thanksgiving, Visited Relatives

Remember, you were supposed to stay home for Thanksgiving, but, the political masters get to do their own thing

Birx travels, family visits highlight pandemic safety perils

As COVID-19 cases skyrocketed before the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, Dr. Deborah Birx, coordinator of the White House coronavirus response, warned Americans to “be vigilant” and limit celebrations to “your immediate household.”

For many Americans that guidance has been difficult to abide, including for Birx herself.

The day after Thanksgiving, she traveled to one of her vacation properties on Fenwick Island in Delaware. She was accompanied by three generations of her family from two households. Birx, her husband Paige Reffe, a daughter, son-in-law and two young grandchildren were present.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has asked Americans not to travel over the holidays and discourages indoor activity involving members of different households. “People who do not currently live in your housing unit, such as college students who are returning home from school for the holidays, should be considered part of different households.”

Even in Birx’s everyday life, there are challenges meeting that standard. She and her husband have a home in Washington. She also owns a home in nearby Potomac, Maryland, where her elderly parents, and her daughter and family live, and where Birx visits intermittently. In addition, the children’s other grandmother, who is 77, also regularly travels to the Potomac house and returns to her 92-year-old husband near Baltimore. (snip)

“To me this disqualifies her from any future government health position,” said Dr. Angela Rasmussen, a virologist at the Georgetown Center for Global Health Science and Security. “It’s a terrible message for someone in public health to be sending to the American people.”

Well, it’s the message that many, many politicians and Government Officials

Numerous elected officials, including prominent Democrats, have been forced to acknowledge that they have not heeded their own stern warnings to the public about the dangers of spreading the virus.

But Birx occupies a position of far greater authority when it comes to the pandemic. Many Americans rely on the advice that she and the government’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, have given.

Interestingly, this AP article really trashes Birx for this Thanksgiving travel. I mean trashed her in a way that the AP and most news media never trashed those Democrats who were covid-hypocrites. Is anyone trashing California Gov Gavin Newsome over being exposed because a staffer got COVID somehow? Is anyone bothering to ask how the staffer got COVID?

Meanwhile, Congress has supposedly agree on a COVID relief package, now that Democrats have dropped a lot of their Crazy like they had in other packages. “The deal includes restarting a $300 boost to the federal unemployment insurance benefit, extending eviction moratoriums for renters for an unspecified amount of time and a $600 direct payment to most Americans.”

    So, yet another public health official cannot practice what she preached. Color me shocked.

    Thing is, a few of the officials ordering us to stay at home really have managed to follow their own orders, like Governor Tom Wolf (D-PA), yet he tested positive for COVID-19 anyway. Governor Andy Beshear (D_KY) has managed to obey his own restrictions, or at least if he violated them, he didn’t get caught at it, but they, and he, are still advocating an impossible policy.

    Humans need social interaction; we are social creatures. That’s why solitary confinement is such a harsh punishment, which some consider to be a form of torture.

    But, to save human lives, Our Betters have ordered us to cease being human beings. This is why it doesn’t work!

    “But, to save human lives, Our Betters have ordered us to cease being human beings. This is why it doesn’t work!”

    well, that and the fact that about 75% of infections are traced to the home. Ask Tom Wolf. But facts don’t matter when you’re a Covidian. Only power.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      PE Kye states that 75% of infections are traced to the home. Well… the Covid virus doesn’t enter the home via leaky doors and windows, it’s delivered by humans. Mom goes golfing, or has lunch with friends and carries the virus back to Dad and the kids. Dad goes shopping or attends a Russia Don rally and infects Mom and the kids. The virus is not in water supply or in your Amazon packages.

      By all means, leave your mask at home, carry on as you normally would. Have Mrs. Kye do the same as there’s nothing for you to worry about.

      Did you hear that the Repubs couldn’t get their business liability carve-out into the bill?
