President Donald Trump has been clear that he thinks New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has massively botched the response to the coronavirus. But now, there’s humiliating dissent coming from within de Blasio’s own state.
According to Fox News, New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot is resigning, and her stated reason explains everything.
“I leave my post today with deep disappointment that during the most critical public health crisis in our lifetime, that the Health Department’s incomparable disease control expertise was not used to the degree it could have been,” said Barbot in a statement to de Blasio.
“Our experts are world renowned for their epidemiology, surveillance and response work,” continued Barbot. “The city would be well served by having them at the strategic center of the response not in the background.”
“This morning I submitted my formal resignation to Mayor de Blasio,” she said.
