Gee. A unit specifically to handle Pandemics. Who would have thought such a thing was a good idea.
The difference between the Middle Ages, and the Age of the Internet, is that in the Middle Ages no-one thought the Earth was flat.

I don't think Politico knows what "consolidate" means.

Politico: Trump administration might consolidate pandemic response at State Department

Dr. Deborah Birx, a top official handling the administration’s response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, is likely to wind up in charge of the new unit if it becomes a reality.
I thought she had been auditioning to step into Kellyanne's job? :?

Yesterday was the first time I heard Birx’s voice. Does she always sound like a little girl? Oy, what little confidence I had in her was stripped away.

Go figure, an entire administration of unqualified, third tier hacks couldn’t get the job done.

Trump's moving the pandemic response away from the scientists at the CDC and into the hands of sycophants at the State Department who will issue the propaganda Trump demands. JMHO

Adding: he moves the team far from the WH cause the fail will be getting worse. Even when the move is just accross the street. But does he really want to fire Pompeo when that name will be all over the press as top honcho responsible? I guess as a side effect Pence will be leaving the team as their headmaster.

I wonder if this isn't a way to encourage Pompeo to run for that KS Senate seat. McConnell and Trump have been pressuring him to do it, and he's refused. Making the coronavirus response his department's bailiwick (and thus his cross to bear if things don't go exactly right - crushing his 2024 dreams) might just be what convinces him to resign and run for Senate, however reluctantly.

The only good news about this is that the media can now tell all those people that have been hoarding it and slurping it that they can drop off the medication as did the clown-in-command. At least that ought to bring some relief to the pharmacies that need to provide the medicine to the patients in actual need.

If he was really taking it, his doctor would have explicitly said so.

The nutjobs who grovel at his feet think he was taking it. That's all that matters to him.

The Hill: White House scaling back temperature screenings

The White House is scaling back its temperature screenings for those entering the building, officials said Monday, citing Washington, D.C.'s move into phase two of its reopening process.

Staff and journalists entering the building have been required to pass a temperature check and answer questions about their health before gaining access to the White House over the past few months in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus. But tents set up along the north entrance of the building to conduct screenings were taken down Monday morning.

"In conjunction with Washington, D.C. entering Phase Two today, the White House is scaling back complex-wide temperature checks," White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement.

The shift on health screenings for those entering the building marks the latest indication the White House is loosening measures meant to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, which has infected more than 2.2 million people in the U.S. ...

The White House has been laser-focused in recent weeks on messaging that the U.S. is ready to reopen businesses and jumpstart the economy, portraying the federal government's response to the coronavirus as a success.

I want Trump to put his money where his mouth is. It's either safe to go around with no mask and have no testing or it's not. What is safe for the public should be safe for him and vice versa. I want the media to start shouting this at the top of their lungs. What's good for goose, etc. It is a ridiculous farce that he continues to get away with extreme caution for himself at the same time that he actually deliberately encourages the public to ignore reasonable precautions to keep themselves and others safe.

His whole defense of the pee tapes was, “But I’m a germaphobe!” COVID-19 is likely way worse than anything one might catch from a presumptively healthy hooker’s pee. So I’m calling BS on the germaphobe defense to the pee tapes.
