One top Republican senator publicly appealed to President Donald Trump on Twitter over his very public swipe at one of his own coronavirus task force members. Over the weekend, Birx — who was also criticized by Speaker Nancy Pelosi — warned that the U.S. is in a “new phase” of the coronavirus pandemic. Trump tweeted Monday morning, “In order to counter Nancy, Deborah took the bait & hit us. Pathetic!”
So Crazy Nancy Pelosi said horrible things about Dr. Deborah Birx, going after her because she was too positive on the very good job we are doing on combatting the China Virus, including Vaccines & Therapeutics. In order to counter Nancy, Deborah took the bait & hit us. Pathetic!

a. have the stones to @RealDonaldTrump instead of talking to nobody as if you’re talking to him.
b. You hope he knows she’s a scientist? You’ve been propping up a guy for 3 years who wouldn’t know his task force coordinator isnt the stewardess?
c. Love? You just wake from coma?
