Any man or woman who refuses to give absolute loyalty to Trumpenstein is fired. Any man or woman who disagrees openly with Trumpenstein is fired. Any man or woman who corrects one of his many mistakes is fired.
Doctor Rick Bright is one of those men.
Bright had led the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority since 2016 when he was reassigned last month to a narrower position at the National Institutes of Health. He was recently fired for one sad reason, he disagreed with Trump’s many lies about the current pandemic. Today, May 5, 2020, Bright filed a whistleblower lawsuit claiming that Trump is lying when he claims he did not know about the serious threat from Covid-19 months earlier than he claims.
His attorneys claim that firing Bright was a violation of the ‘Whistleblower Protection Act.’ Bright also claims that he expressed his concern about the threat of a pandemic in January, but was met with “indifference which then developed into hostility” by leaders at the Department of Health and Human Services.
Trump’s entire existence is based on lies. I would feel pity for this immature man-child if he hadn’t harmed my country irreparably over the last three years. Not a single accomplishment has been recorded about Donald John Trump. Even his degree from Wharton appears illegitimate. His lack of basic intelligence suggests that daddy not only purchased his deferments from Vietnam, he also bought his diploma.
