Dr. Deborah Birx can often be heard at President Trump’s coronavirus briefings, and her direct way of dealing with the facts (and addressing those who are doing nothing but trying to spread fear) doesn’t sit well with some who have a narrative to push. Here’s one example of Dr. Birx in action:

Among those who don’t like Dr. Birx’s approach is former Obama adviser Dan Pfieffer:
Instead of lecturing the Governors, nurses, and doctors on the front lines, Dr Birx could use her position and platform to push the President to his power to invoke the DPA to make more ventilators.
Having too many ventilators would be a high class problem. https://t.co/KXxikPqzR9

Remember when the talking points were “listen to the doctors” and “Trump doesn’t have any women on his coronavirus team”? Yeah, forget about all that:
Help me here — is this not textbook ‘mansplaining’? Obama comms bro lectures top female medical expert (who also served under Obama) on what to say and how to do her job: https://t.co/QI2OuXf3h5

But it’s OK when liberals do it!
A guy with a podcast is lecturing a woman who has the rank of colonel in the US Army, has a BS and MD and served as the global AIDS coordinator to your former boss.
But you go off. https://t.co/lX5KQmzS4J

Isn’t that special?
Why do you want him to be a dictator so damn badly? https://t.co/uozpvuLOrz

When Dr. Fauci said President Trump listens to him and scientists, the Left responded by trying to pit them against each other—and failed.
Now they have a new target: Dr. Birx. https://t.co/AFhB8UZJFg

It’s gotten nothing short of shameless.
