Mediziner gegen Trump: Wahrheit ist weder liberal noch konservativ

Dying in a Leadership Vacuum

Leitartikel im New England Journal of Medicine

Covid-19 has created a crisis throughout the world. This crisis has produced a test of leader-ship. With no good options to combat a novel pathogen, countries were forced to make hard choices about how to respond. Here in the United States, our leaders have failed that test. They have taken a crisis and turned it into a tragedy.

[…] But truth is neither liberal nor conservative. When it comes to the response to the largest public health crisis of our time, our current political leaders have demonstrated that they are dangerously incompetent. We should not abet them and enable the deaths of thousands more Americans by allowing them to keep their jobs.

Anmerkung: Der Präsidentenberater Dr. Fauci argumentierte während der fortschreitenden Virus-Pandemie als advocatus diaboli, um schließlich die vom Weißen Haus unterschätzten und verharmlosten Infektionsrisiken, die er als „Alptraum“ bezeichnete, im offenen Widerstand gegen Trump kritisch zu kommentieren.
