“Yeah, we completely destroyed our state following this advice, but it was great advice.”
Ohio Republican Gov. Mike DeWine said Sunday that he follows the “very good guidance” given by White House coronavirus task members Dr. Deborah Birx and Dr. Anthony Fauci, as the voice of another task force member whose advice on the pandemic is at odds with the public health experts has gained prominence.
“You know, my contact at the White House has been Dr. Birx, Dr. Fauci. They have been aligned very, very closely. The message has been, ‘We got to take this seriously, we got to wear a mask’,” DeWine told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” when asked about the role Dr. Scott Atlas, a controversial member of the task force, is playing in the pandemic.
“They have given very good guidance and, you know, I have been following those two as well as a lot of other infectious disease experts and people who we can talk to,” the governor said.
The comments from DeWine come at a time when both Birx and Fauci, two prominent members of the task force, have receded from public view at the White House while Atlas has become one of President Donald Trump’s closest advisers on the public health crisis, something that has frustrated the other doctors.
What a piece of shit.
Traitor Republicans are so much worse than Democrats.
DeWine destroyed Ohio with moral grandstanding.
He should be in prison with Fauci and Birx.
Scott Atlas should be governor of Ohio.
