A resignation announcement just shocked Joe Biden and his team. She is leaving and there is nothing he can do about it. This is a stunning move.
“Coronavirus task force leader Dr. Deborah Birx announced Wednesday she plans to retire after president-elect Joe Biden takes office,” reported Breitbart News. Biden has not responded to the news yet.
Speaking to Newsy, Birx said, “I hope I was helpful, I will be helpful in any role that people think I can be helpful in and then I will retire.” White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany also released a statement.
McEnany noted that President Donald Trump has “great respect” for Birx and they “wish her well” in her retirement. Predictably, anti-Trump liberals on social didn’t waste any time making Birx’s departure about politics.
John Aravosis, one of the many certified “blue checkmarks” on Twitter, accused Birx of staying silent during the COVID-19 crisis and claimed that Trump is responsible for the Americans who have died from the virus.
“Of course you do,” said Aravosis, responding to McEnany. “She kissed your a** while you murdered nearly 300,000 Americans with your lies and indifference.”
