Fox host to CDC director: Obama lied about ‘things’ so maybe you’re lying about Ebola

Published

on

Fox News host Steve Doocy on Wednesday asked CDC Director Dr. Tim Frieden how he could be trusted to tell the country the truth about Ebola when President Barack Obama had misled Americans about “a lot of things.”

Following the news that a case of Ebola had been diagnosed in Texas, Doocy told Frieden that his own daughter thought she might be at risk to contract the disease.

“I know you say the public does not need to worry about it,” Doocy said. “But I’ve got to tell you something, my daughter works in the building directly across the street from the hospital, and I talked to her last night. She’s a little freaked out.”

Frieden assured Doocy that his daughter was safe because she had not come in contact with the patient.

“Let’s go back and look at the plain truth of how Ebola spreads, it only spreads through someone who’s sick,” the CDC director explained. “And only spreads from direct contact with the person or their body fluids.”

Doocy said that Fox News viewers had written in expressing doubts about Frieden and the CDC because they were “part of the administration.”

“They feel that the administration has misled a lot of people on a lot of things,” Doocy remarked. “Why should we believe you when you’re telling us this stuff?”

Frieden replied that the CDC always was as transparent as possible when dealing with the public.

“We’re going to tell you what happens, when it happens,” he said. “When we don’t know something, we’ll tell you that as well. We level with people because that’s the most important way, that’s the most effective way to get the information across and to get people to understand what we need to do.”

“And the fact is, what we need to do here is to trace every one of the contacts carefully,” Frieden added. “And more broadly, help stop it in Africa for not just their sakes, but for ours.”

Trump can’t fire Mulvaney because nobody else wants to be his chief of staff: report

Published

on

White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.

"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."

Bill Maher rips Trump and ‘the gang that couldn’t do treason straight’ on Real Time

Published

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher ripped the incompetence of the Trump administration after acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney confessed that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine in Rudy Giuliani's search for foreign election assistance.

"It's not just that he's always breaking the law, it's that he obviously wants you to know about it," Maher said. "The Joker doesn't want to get caught this bad."

"This is Trump's definition of three-dimensional chess, 'I'm going to distract you from impeaching me by committing more crimes," he said.

"It's like he comes home and Melania says to him, 'you have lipstick on your color,' and he says, 'you should see my d*ck,'" Maher said.
