As I caught a clip of an interview Dr. Deborah Birx did on MSNBC recently, my mind quickly began recalling the myriad other former Trump administration cabinet members and officials who have openly criticized their former boss.
Birx, who served as the Trump administration’s White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, has been making the rounds of network and cable TV news programs answering questions about her new book Silent Invasion: The Untold Story of the Trump Administration, COVID-19, and Preventing the Next Pandemic Before It’s Too Late. In her book and in the interviews, Birx says she tried to counter the COVID misinformation being spread by the former president. She said she even went so far as to tell Vice President Mike Pence that she was publicly countering Trump’s loony and dangerous assertions about a virus that was killing Americans by the thousands. And Pence, she says, told her to “Do what you need to do.”
Yes, even Trump’s sidekick knew that, for the good of the nation, he had to give his loyalty to sanity and truth over his boss’s derangement and lies. And, perhaps also for the good of the nation, Pence recently garnered the gumption to declare, “President Trump is wrong. I had no right to overturn the election,” and “The presidency belongs to the American people, and the American people alone. And frankly, there is no idea more un-American than the notion that any one person could choose the American president.”
Coming from the cautious, restrained, often timid former vice president, that seems like a pretty harsh denunciation of the former president. But it’s mild compared to criticisms from other former Trump administration officials, such as the following:
“You never can tell with Trump. His relationship with the truth is very tenuous.”
