‘Just incompetent’: CNN doctor reads Trump the riot act after US hits record COVID cases

Published

Novel coronavirus cases in the United States hit a record high on Thursday, as numbers released by the COVID-19 Tracking Project show more than 88,000 new infections.

CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner on Friday slammed President Donald Trump for ignoring the record surge in cases and continuing to insist that America has “rounded the corner” on dealing with the disease.

He also explained that it would be relatively easy for the United States to get control of the virus and lower the rate of infection.

“This is the way we turn it around: We stop making it easy for the virus,” he said. “We separate ourselves. When we have to be in an enclosed space, maybe in closer proximity the people than we want, we need to have a mask on. Any time you go out of the house, you have to have a mask on. If we do these things, the rate of acceleration of this virus will start to decrease.”

However, he said that doing these things requires leadership that we are not seeing from the White House.

“The president, though, is listening to a single voice in the White House who is just incompetent,” he said, referring to Dr. Scott Atlas, the right-wing radiologist who has regularly peddled misinformation about wearing face masks. “He has sidelined his professionals and he has brought in a radiologist who has no expertise in this. He’s not a clinician. He does not know what he’s doing.”

The View’s Ana Navarro bashes Republicans refusing to stop Trump: ‘They’re going to go down in shame’

Published

"The View" co-hosts are furious that President Donald Trump is still refusing to stand down after losing the 2020 election. To make matters worse, Republican communications consultant Ana Navarro blames Republicans for allowing the madness to persist for so long that it's now starting to put the United States in a compromised situation.

"Look, I don't know what it's going to take because really it should have happened weeks ago," said Navarro. "States are beginning to certify their results. Electors vote in a couple of weeks, but you know, Whoopi, I keep talking about history and how history is going to judge this. There are going to be books written about this. It's going to be studied by school kids in 30 years and 40 years."

President Donald Trump on Sunday formally exited the Open Skies Treaty, but now he's moving to scrap the planes, ensuring President Joe Biden will not be able to re-enter the program easily.

First proposed in 1992, the treaty was formalized in 2002. 34 nations are party to the agreement, and all are allowed to fly unarmed aircraft over any member nation. The goal is to ensure transparency and mutual understanding.
