The politics of a health crisis....

Trump claims he has the authority to block Fauci from testifying in front of a House committee but has no objection to Fauci's testimony in front of a Senate committee.

Quote:
After the White House blocked Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of the government's coronavirus task force, from testifying before House lawmakers next week, he will appear before the GOP-led Senate Committee on Health, Education Labor and Pensions on May 12, a spokesperson for for Sen. Lamar Alexander said in a statement.

"Chairman Alexander looks forward to hearing from Dr. Fauci and other administration officials at the Senate health committee’s second hearing back, which will be on Tuesday, May 12," the statement read.

Previously, White House spokesman Judd Deere had said in a statement to ABC News it would be "counter-productive" to the administration's COVID-19 response for Fauci and other top officials to appear before lawmakers to discuss the government's actions in relation to the pandemic.
His reasoning on this seems clear, to avoid having people he considers his political opponents ask questions of a knowledgeable witness to the government's actions in relation to the pandemic.

The explanation actually given for the double standard is transparently fallacious, that it would be "counter-productive" for Fauci to testify.

Nawwww, his reasoning is that THE HOUSE CAN"T HANDLE THE TRUTH (but the Senate can).

See, a simple explanation. Obviously the House needs four more years of Trump to toughen them up.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (CBS12) As Florida starts to reopen, the architect and manager of Florida's COVID-19 dashboard, announced she'd been removed from her position, Florida Today reported.

Rebekah Jones said in an email to CBS12 News that her removal was "not voluntary" and that she was removed from her position because she was ordered to censor some data, but refused to "manually change data to drum up support for the plan to reopen."

Jones made the announcement May 5 in a farewell email to researchers and other members of the public who had signed up to receive updates on the data portal, according to Florida Today. She said that for "reasons beyond my division's control," her office is no longer managing the dashboard, involved in its publication, fixing errors or answering any questions.

This is /our/ President, and leaders of other countries around the world.




See if you can spot the difference.

Yeah.

It's not a good look.

Our chief Womble is a little less embarrassing, but it's a close call.

Just after I watched this I saw a picture my state rep at a meeting actually voting for what's might be a good piece of health legislation, the only one with her mask off.
