    Default Trump's new covid specialist Dr Scott Atlas

    Now on the Task Force is Dr Scott Atlas, who thinks other health specialists are lying about statistics.

    Dr. Scott Atlas, former chief of neuroradiology at Stanford University Medical Center and a senior fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution, offered a potential explanation about why COVID hospitalizations are rising among younger people in Texas.
    Appearing on Monday night’s “The Story with Martha MacCallum,” Atlas said that, since everyone who gets hospitalized for any reason is getting tested for COVID-19, the people making up the inflated statistics could actually be “hospitalized for something else” but “classified as COVID-19 hospitalizations.”

    The guy I reported to (at the Director level) said the same thing about Covid death numbers back in June. Thankfully, he didn't survive the downsizing last week.
    I now have 16 trolls on ignore.

    Atlas should give Trump a MRI--which he is fully qualified to do. That might actually be of some use. Failing that, there isn't much reason to have Atlas around.

    I think a brain scan, of any kind, would come back negative.

    (bold) That right there. Other fellows?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Sowell

    From 1965 to 1969, Sowell was an assistant professor of economics at Cornell University. Writing 30 years later about the 1969 takeover by black Cornell students of Willard Straight Hall, Sowell characterized the students as "hoodlums" with "serious academic problems [who were] admitted under lower academic standards", and noted "it so happens that the pervasive racism that black students supposedly encountered at every turn on campus and in town was not apparent to me during the four years that I taught at Cornell and lived in Ithaca."[11]
    So because he himself didn't witness racism, therefore it did not exist.
