Now? Now she's concerned?

You enabled a sociopathic monster, Dr Birx. Now you have to live with that.

Go buy another scarf, you'll feel better.

You dont understand. You dont know him like she does.

She can change him.

I don't know why she chose to do that. But she did. And there are consequences.

My concern for her concern is of little concern.
 
2020-09-24 1:24:46 PM  
Oh, no! She shouldn't quit. Maybe if she continues to play along for a little bit longer, and defend the indefensible for a few more days, she can help put out the dumpster fire from the inside and make a difference.

born_yesterday: People are dead because of you, you stupid Brix.


She had to know this was the outcome. Had to. What in the world was she thinking? "So close to absolute power, all I have to do is change his mind. It can't be that hard, not with facts and reality"? Makes as much sense as the Alan Parson's Project on the Death Star plan by Dr Evil and his was far better planned and much more entertaining to watch.

Not to pile on or anything, but Birx enabled that pile of oily, orange shiat, as shown by her bravest moment, where she sat stone-faced as Trump told people to stick UV lights up their asses and inject bleach.
 
2020-09-24 1:30:03 PM  
Just spitballing, but she might have done better to express her concern after she was in the room when POTUS said that you could inject chemicals or shine UV light in the veins to beat coronavirus.

Just another yes (wo)man.

I hear a rumor for which I have no evidence that she is where she is because she's one of Pence's dominionist cronies.  I should look into this.  She sure as hell isn't there because she's a competent scientist.

At the time, I thought she was simply blindsided by the President's stupidity and her expression was just due to her brain working overtime to figure out a way to correct him on live tv without a shiatstorm of foul language.

She's just now "distressed"? Jesus farking Christ... Took me awhile to convince my wife that woman was compromised, but she was on board with me way back in June. I have no idea who actually thinks that she has any credibility anymore.

Yeah, I'd actually give anyone a pass on that one. And that's after the post I just wrote about how this woman has no credibility. I think even Pence would sit stone-faced, not from support for once, but the "WTF did I just hear?" shock.

Go back and watch some of those early press conferences, she was in Trump's pocket from the beginning.  Fauci would say something smart, then Trump would say something moronic and Birx would stare at him with a vapid look and clearly wanted to suck on the mushroom.

When Donny Bullshiat is done with her the Repubs will throw her under the bus and the Dems will remember.

Thanks for all the unnecessary deaths.  She choose to swallow the career suicide pill. Too late to pump the stomach out now.

I'll pile on too. As a doctor, she should have known of and/or recognized trump as a life long sociopath, and the danger of that kind of person has with power. Having that knowledge, she would have known that "change" is impossible for these people and noped out. Professionals, such as Fauci, know how to avoid but influence through others surrounding trump. Brix became stupid and complicit by her own choice. Enjoy your future scarf lady.

She is concerned about her status....not concerned at how this government responded to and dealt with the worst pandemic in 100 years. Her status.

Why you gotta be so mean to Brix?  She turned The Fall from a weird, mumbly, obscure band to a...weird, mumbly, slightly less obscure band.

Remember that her main qualification for the job was that she helped Pence cover up a HIV outbreak when he was governor of Indiana.

You're a medical professional.  Putting up with bullshiat is 89% of the job.

It is also possible she *has* been quietly influencing from the shadows and if she hadn't been doing that Trump WOULD have forced an unsafe, ineffective vaccine on us all before now. You don't know.

She was dealing with infectious diseases LONG before Trump came long. She isn't like the neuroradiologist Trump just appointed. She has the creds to be where she is. If she is aware Trump is truly dangerous, she does better trying to stay on the inside and influence as best she can. Getting tossed out where she has no influence doesn't do any good at all.She could be a lot more vocal, but all that would do is put one less sane voice on the inside. She has seen what happens to people that criticize Trump. His followers wouldn't believe her over him, so it wouldn't help *at all* for her to be on the outside talking about the disaster Trump is.

Exactly. I guess she may have consoled herself thinking she could make more a difference from within, but imagine what could have happened if she took advantage of that podium one day and laid it all out: "The President doesn't understand even the basics of this pandemic. He is nothing but a politically motivated monster and he has sacrificed tens of thousands of lives to protect his fortunes. I can't be a part of this anymore. He must resign." 

/I know, not my personal porn site...

She's only upset that she is no longer getting invited to be on television. That's it, that's the problem.

Well Dr. Birx, perhaps you can commission Google to create a website where you can enter your qualifications and it will direct you to the nearest Wal-Mart parking lot for a new job application

Multiple people have all come forward with the exact same story of how this sociopathic monster works:

He tells you a lie. You know it's a lie, he knows it's a lie, the toaster knows it's a lie. And if you don't repeat the lie, he melts down at you. And if you do, he's stolen part of your soul.

I'd like to think that I'm not such a coward that Donald Trump of all people having a meltdown at me would make me lie for him.

Then again, I would never be in the same room as him because he's human scum and I wouldn't enable him to begin with

I first figured out Birx was a stooge at about the third COVID press conference. Fauci had given consistent explanations, narratives, prescriptions, etc. through the conferences, and Birx did not seem really to contribute or add anything. Oh well. Whatever. There were plenty of people contributing nothing, so I shrugged it off.

Until the day when she gushed that her staff had been up until 3 am preparing her graphs for her. The graphs were literally, you know, PowerPointy. I think any competent person could have prepared them in 15 minutes from a database. Oooops. COMPETENT PERSON. So I figured then that she was either lying about her staff, or they were lying to her, or they were all just incompetent.

Then it hit me. She is one of those "executives" who asks sycophants to do this and that and make her look good while she sucks up to the guy higher up. She has no idea of what is going on. So I watched her.

You have all seen this person. She does not understand the mechanisms of what she is talking about. She can't tell the story. She will present "data" and remark that "it is interesting" or "we are watching this." But she will not be able to tell you anything that the data will not tell you. Buzzwords. Trivial opinions that can be walked back. Very little information. Even the graphs are vague and bland. She will put you to sleep. And the more intelligent you are, the faster you doze off.

So I watched over time and noted that Trump minimized and belittled her, and eventually subverted her because Trump had figured it out. She was a fake. He spotted it early and turned her into a tool. And by the time of the bleach incident, he knew and she knew that she was a fake. He knew she would just nod her head because she was worthless. She nodded because that is what her entire career had been leading to.

Fauci? Totally different story. That guy paid his dues. Like Jack Burton. He stood up and told the story consistently, but with different examples and analogies. If he had a graph or two, he could talk for half an hour on the nuances of the data rather then flipping through 5 or 10 charts just to change the axes and impress people. Everyone in the world figured it out. He knew what was going on and he was the smartest guy in the room. Trump would NEVER go head to head with him.
