Dr. Birx was outed Sunday for defying her own holiday get-together guidance issued to the general public and has decided to retire after the “overwhelming” experience of having her hypocrisy gracing national headlines.
Birx will help the Biden team and then she’s out.
From the New York Post:
Dr. Deborah Birx has announced she plans to retire after being outed on Sunday for not following her own holiday travel guidance, calling the experience “overwhelming.”
In an interview with Newsy, the White House coronavirus task force coordinator said she would help the incoming Biden administration but then planned to head for the exits.
“I want the Biden administration to be successful,” Birx said, noting that she has worked in the federal government since the Reagan administration in 1980.
“I will be helpful in any role that people think I can be helpful in and then I will retire,” she went on.
“I will have to say, as a civil servant, I will be helpful through a period of time, and then I will have to say, this experience has been a bit overwhelming. It has been very difficult on my family … I think what was done over the last week to my family.”
The infectious disease expert, 64, was outed on Sunday for not following her own travel guidance when she was joined by three different generations of family at one of her vacation properties on Fenwick Island in Delaware the day after Thanksgiving.
She was roundly criticized for not following her own orders after publicly urging Americans in the days leading up to Thanksgiving to limit gatherings to “your immediate household.”
Monday we blogged about Dr. Birx’s Thanksgiving which included a gathering of three generations of family (a lovely thing on its own) which directly contradicted her guidance to limit celebrations to members of your immediate household.DONATE
