Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, May 15, 2020

The prestigious medical journal The Lancet took square aim at the Trump administration on Friday, urging Americans to elect a president "who will understand that public health should not be guided by partisan politics." The administration, the unsigned editorial argued, has enacted an "inconsistent and incoherent national response to the COVID-19 crisis" and marginalized public health experts.

"The Administration is obsessed with magic bullets " vaccines, new medicines, or a hope that the virus will simply disappear," the editorial argued. "But only a steadfast reliance on basic public health principles, like test, trace, and isolate, will see the emergency brought to an end, and this requires an effective national public health agency."
Tell us something we don't already know....

Great. Even though they're correct it will make Trumpers hate science and medicine more for speaking out against dear leader.

Can you imagine if our President said that our radars are not necessary to win the war while we were under an air assault from our enemies and a hundred thousand Americans lay dead?

That's the same thing trump is doing when he says testing is not necessary and overrated.

Without testing we cannot see where the enemy is.

Without testing we will never beat the virus. We can only see it right now when it beats the crap out of us.

I expect STS on two known fronts, since it's The Lancet.
Curious if the Deplorables find any other attack vectors.

Science is part of the Deep State. And Deep State rhymes with Obamagate.

It's Hillary behind the scenes working with Obama who in turn is conspiring with the AMA thats working in tandem with the mole people.

Sprinkle liberally with pedophilia and you're magically transported to Trumpland...

You have to laugh so that you don't cry.

Because all the other sciences hate him, too.
