Highly Partisan CNN Doctor Criticizes Trump

2020 October 7
by bc3b

President Trump’s doctors approved his brief limo ride Sunday to greet supporters rallying outside Walter Reed. No sooner did that happen than “Dr. James Phillips, M.D., an attending physician at Walter Reed as well as chief of Disaster Medicine at George Washington University, accused the president of endangering lives including those of his Secret Service detail for taking the short trip.”

So, just who is Dr. James Phillips, M.D.? It seems Dr. Phillip’s is a contributor to CNN. If he’s a contributor to CNN, you can bet that he isn’t a fan of the President. In fact, betting that Dr. Phillips is a liberal Democrat with an agenda would be about as safe as betting that either an American League or a National League team will win the World Series.

In addition, Dr. Phillips made the media tour this morning, also appearing on ABC’s Good Morning America, likely with CNN’s enthusiastic approval.

“That Presidential SUV is not only bulletproof, but hermetically sealed against chemical attack. The risk of COVID19 transmission inside is as high as it gets outside of medical procedures. The irresponsibility is astounding. My thoughts are with the Secret Service forced to play,” Phillips wrote.

“Every single person in the vehicle during that completely unnecessary Presidential ‘drive-by’ just now has to be quarantined for 14 days. They might get sick. They may die. For political theater. Commanded by Trump to put their lives at risk for theater. This is insanity,” Phillips added.

But as it turns out, the president’s medical team cleared the drive-by ahead of time and ensured that everyone involved was protected.

CBS News’ Catherine Herridge referenced her network colleague Mark Knoller, who reported that a White House official told him, “Appropriate precautions were taken in the execution of this movement to protect POTUS + all those supporting it, including PPE…cleared by the medical team as safe to do.”

In a statement, Deputy White House press secretary Judd Deere said, “President Trump took a short, last-minute motorcade ride to wave to his supporters outside and has now returned to the Presidential Suite inside Walter Reed.”

Likely anticipating the criticism, Deere also noted that “appropriate precautions were taken in the execution of this movement to protect the President and all those supporting it, including PPE.”

He added: “The movement was cleared by the medical team as safe to do.”

Photos of the drive-by show the president masked, as are other personnel inside the vehicle with him. Some are wearing personal protective equipment and N95 masks.

“I think we’re going to pay a little surprise to some of the great patriots that we have out on the street,” he said. “And they’ve been out there for a long time, and they’ve got Trump flags. And they love our country. So I’m not telling anybody, but you. But I’m about to make a little surprise visit.”

“It’s been a very interesting journey,” Trump noted further. “I learned a lot about COVID. I learned it by really going to school. This is the real school. This isn’t the ‘Let’s read the book’ school. I get it. I understand it, and it’s a very interesting thing, and I’m going to be letting you know about it.”

    Much like the “undecided voters” at CNN and NBC town halls, Dr. James Phillips is not what he is portrayed to be.

    Gotta give BOR some credit, just caught a clip of him last night mentioning some shit that was in nancy’s stimulus bill… she wanted to remove the last-4 SS# as part of registering to vote so there is zero way to cross-ref check citizenship (not even that all but NE do that..that I know of but still), and it’s also one of her sticking points apparently in addition to the debt ridden states bailout $.

    No wonder Trump was like … fuck this shit.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDEMIfDueBU (around the 2:30hr mark.) Didn’t know he was back on air on the regular beyond 30min a week on newsmax, seems he on nightly on theFirstTv.com, didn’t know that.

    Bongino who was a former SS man made a comment on his podcast yesterday that the detail that rode with the POTUS were all volunteers. Apparently POTUS did a ‘It would be nice’ request and not insisting it had to happen. That has not been reported. Nor has the fact the man was sending pizzas to the folks surrounding Walter Reed received little if any play.

    I swear to God in Heaven please, let the MSM die an inglorious death of the people not even noticing that they left the scene.

    My question of the day is — Are the Dims just in the game like the Washington Generals?

    Their candidate is weak. Their ground game is weak. They are only buying air time when they see Trump leading in a state.

    Now they’re trying to change next weeks debate to virtual, and virtual “town hall” members… what scripted setup disaster waiting to happen even more than it already would be. I’d refuse, but that’s me.

    14 – I say 99% they don’t, They’re clearly trying to get Biden out of debate #2, and I doubt this is from them and more from Biden campaign pushing for them to do it anyway.

    I’ve said elsewhere and I’ll say here, this breach by them should be the end of any R candidate ever participating with said commission again. Let this be the nail in the BS already always stacked against R’s “commission” coffin.

    One of Mooch’s “mostly peaceful” demonstrations in Wauwatosa, WI last night. It is an “inner ring” suburb bordering Milwaukee. While the city is 89% white, the cop that killed the youth was black:

    re: polls. Eph, glad to see you standing up to the King and glad you’re feeling optimistic!
    I feel that way too. I live in an 80/20 pro-Hillary deep blue county and there’s so much more conservative/Repub action than in ’16. Outnumbered but people can feel this is for all the marbles.

    Still, just this week I’ve seen a few right wing bloggers say “the polls are real”. Man, these guys are harshing my mellow! I feel good! But I guess I will continue to gnaw fingernails for the foreseeable future….

    CA is like an alki who has not reached rock bottom. Till CA sees they can’t function fiscally the people in that State won’t change. When I mean no function — water works no longer work, bridges falling down, a major metro area lost to fire, etc. It is going to have to get that deep before the state changes color.

    I hate to see it come, but that is what it is going to take.

    Kalifornia is perfect for the Democrats – very few blue collar residents who get their hands dirty, but a combination of illegals and woke upper class liberal whites who are governed by their emotions.

    32,

    Yeah. Especially if the GOPers retain the Senate. Oh and it takes a 2/3rd majority per the amendment not simple majority. So even if the Senate flips and they pack 4 more senators it won’t get them to the magic number.

    “Another interesting fact: Kalifornia is vying to be the first state to offer reperations to blacks.”

    Third interesting fact: Kalifornia wants to use Prop16 to reinstate legalized racism. Job offers, awarding contracts, admissions to colleges By State and Local Government bodies can all use skin color.

    Note that this is the state gov’t using this power.
    Not related to private organizations, not any other state, not the federal government.

    Why has the Kalifornia government been treating blacks so badly that they feel the need to “level the playing field”?

    A question I have about this is, even if Prop 16 does pass, doesn’t Federal law prohibit such discrimination on the basis of skin color? Or, is Kalifornia playing the longer game here?
