Earlier this week former Bill Clinton spokesperson Joe Lockhart got fed up with Dr. Deborah Birx (or “Brix” as he insists on spelling it) for not sticking to the preferred narrative about the coronavirus, and he tweeted this:
Dr Birk has drunk the Kool Aid

“We need to listen to the doctors” has obviously taken a holiday. And if you need more proof Dems and the media are on the same page more often than not, the New York Times has, in a report about Dr. Birx, taken the Lockhart approach and is running with it:
An astute Trump adviser once described the president as "turning" people so they start to adopt his views, in a binary Trump sees as him vs media. Some fear Dr. Deborah Birx is the latest example. @noahweiland and me https://t.co/Y6QNWvxZVC

Are they saying “some fear” Trump has brainwashed Dr. Birx? Because that’s what it sounds like. The Dems will really appreciate this particular water carrying effort.
People like Dr. Birx. They trust her.
People don't like the media. They don't trust them.
Media cannot deal. https://t.co/6oszhUO0Nr

Yes, the media might also be triggered because their approval rating is well below that of Trump and his handling of this particular crisis.
Latest insane hot take
Dr Birx is a lying Trumper

You are garbage people. More butt-hurt from holdovers.

This is so unhelpful and unproductive.
Has she made mistakes? Has she said things I wouldn't? YES
Does ANYONE who has met Birx really believe her main goal isn't to save as many lives as possible???
This is the usual partisan garbage I was talking about yesterday. https://t.co/Gn6s97nCPU

She is saying Dr. Birx is a weak person. She’s the opposite. https://t.co/mXxkqc7Dux

Not that reality and the truth matters anymore.
Actually, I give you and most of your colleagues credit for turning me to Trump.

The mainstream media has ZERO idea how much their constant shilling for the Left has backfired.
