I often look at the Trump personnel on my screen, and I ask, "Where do they find these people?" In Atlas's case, it was Stanford University.
Atlas is a talking head from the Hoover Institution, Stanford's tighty-righty think tank. Where the wonderful Condi Rice landed after all her foreign policy successes under George W. Bush. That place has always been a bit of an embarrassment to some of us, but this time around the real doctors in the medical school are deeply mortified.
More than 100 Stanford affiliates in areas such as epidemiology, infectious disease, immunology and health policy condemned the “falsehoods and misrepresentations of science recently fostered by Dr. Scott Atlas” in the letter. The authors cited the Hippocratic Oath and their “moral and ethical responsibility” to speak out.
What a place in history – to be the guy who was wheeled into place after Orange Caligula trashed Anthony Fauci. It's amazing how many people there are like Atlas. Amazing and deeply depressing.
