Dr. Deborah Birx, White House coronavirus response coordinator, listens as Donald Trump asks about injecting disinfectant (Alex Brandon/AP)
In our latest 15-minute Journey Across Trump-Land, I joined talkRADIO’s Alexis Conran and Gloria De Piero to discuss Donald Trump’s dangerous statements over a Coronavirus which has killed almost 54,000 people in the US.
We review Trump’s advocacy of injecting disinfectant, asking why top White House medical experts like Dr Deborah Birx are not pushing back the potentially-deadly advice during the televised briefings.
Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr Birx know that, if they challenge Trump in public, they could be out the door the next day.
Even without embarrassing Trump, Fauci has received death threats from Trump supporters because he gives medical advice that they don’t want to hear.
We note Trump’s U-turn over illegal protests and State stay-at-home orders, overshadowed by his latest misinformation.
And we look ahead to November’s election, talking about Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s approach — and the possibility that Trump will try to delay a vote if he is in political trouble.
