    Trump adds coronavirus adviser who echoes his unscientific claims“
    “Moments before President Donald Trump entered the room for his recently reinstated daily coronavirus briefing Monday, three aides preceded him: Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, budget chief Russell Vought and a new face.

    "Wait, by the way, the gentlemen -- you know everybody ... This is Scott Atlas. Do you know that?" Trump asked.”

    “The man Trump was pointing to was Dr. Scott Atlas, a fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution who frequently appears on Fox News and has advised Republicans in the past. And crucially, unlike the government's medical experts who have advised Trump until now, has adopted a public stance on the virus much closer to Trump's -- including decrying the idea that schools cannot reopen this fall as "hysteria" and pushing for the resumption of college sports.“

    “Atlas made his debut in the briefing room with a new title: adviser to the President.“

    “When the President initially revived his daily briefings, he told aides he did not want the experts who had at times contradicted him to join him any longer. Instead, he claimed, he would relay the administration's message that day by himself. This week Atlas has already attended two briefings”

    Shocker, definitely fits the pattern;

    “Trump allies line up doctors prescribing rapid reopening to counter criticism”

    Guess he gave up on Dr Birx, and Dr Immanuel was probably busy chasing aliens, but now he has his anti Fauci. Trump’s only problem is that Americans recognize what this is, after three and half years Americans know Trump’s schtick, outside of the Fox bubble, recognized as just another Trump charade

    Its easier to control the uneducated! I do think they need to open sensibly though. My friend's son's school is opening but staggering it for safety. They are split up into groups A, B, C and D and its something like monday and wed 2 groups go to school, tues/thurs/friday the other 2 groups go and the rest is online teaching and the groups are never cross-mixed. at least they can get some in person education. I'm not a scientist or anything but I do believe there are safe ways to achieve re-opening with minimal risk and am not a fan of an all or nothing approach

    Obviously, it can be done on a district-by-district basis.

    Depending on location.

    But, any sort of "one size fits all" mass reopening is a non-starter.

    ~ Good ! Hopefully Mr Scott Atlas will bring some truth and facts to the Wuhan virus debacle - like pointing out that in countries where Hydroxychloroquine is available over-the-counter infection rates is very low and has a place in preventing the spread of this pandemic.

    ~ It all goes away after the election.

    The people who think there are 468 genders are complaining about science. That's about as funny as the people who want equality giving preferential treatment to specific groups.

    Preferential does not mean equal.

    Glad I can help.
