REPORT: COVID Scarf Lady Dr. Birx Talked Behind President Trump’s Back with VP Pence’s Chief of Staff Marc Short

Dr. Birx worked behind the scenes with Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff, Marc Short, who “did tremendous damage” in the Trump White House. 

Dr. Birx was not impressive and her recommendations along with Dr. Fauci’s led to the destruction of the economy and tens of thousands of Americans without jobs, businesses and some, their lives.  So it is interesting to see what was going on behind the scenes in the White House while crooked Birx and her co-conspirator Fauci were busy trying to destroy the economy while pushing the destruction of Americans’ rights.

Newsmax reports today:

Then-White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx privately warned that the Trump administration’s proposed coronavirus strategy would lead to an “unacceptable death toll” while publicly giving it “cover,” according to newly published emails obtained by the House Select Committee investigating the previous administration’s response to the pandemic.

Due to her reservations, Birx pulled out of a planned White House roundtable in August 2020 featuring a small group of outside medical experts advising the White House that included those publicly advocating limited coronavirus restrictions and proposing a herd immunity strategy, the emails show, Business Insider reported.

Then-President Donald Trump’s prepared comments for the event said that “unending lockdowns” is “not a science based approach — and it would inflict grave harm on our children and our entire society.”

The morning after the event, Birx wrote an email to former Vice President Mike Pence’s then-chief of staff Marc Short explaining that “I can’t be part of this with these people who believe in herd immunity and believe we are fine with only protecting the 1.5M Americans in [long-term care facilities] and not the 80M+ with co-morbidities in the populations included in the unacceptable death toll among Native Americans, Hispanics, and Blacks.”

Birx warned that by utilizing this strategy the death toll could rise to 500,000 by the time the U.S. had a vaccine, saying, “without masks and social distancing in public and homes we end up with twice as many deaths — we are a very unhealthy nation with a lot of obesity etc.”

Before the event, Birx described in an email to Short the people who would attend the roundtable as “a fringe group without grounding in epidemics, public health, or on the ground common sense experience.”

Birx then wrote that she was “happy to go out of town or whatever gives the WH cover for Weds.”

It’s not surprising that Birx was communicating with Pence’s Chief of Staff Short.  Dr. Peter Navarro shared about Short on Bannon’s War Room.

You start with Marc Short is a tool of the Koch Brothers. Who are the Koch brothers? They’re worth $50 billion. David died last year but the network lives.  The Koch brothers are the biggest anti-MAGA movement in the whole entire Republican Party.  They were dedicated, both in 2016 and 2020, to wipe out President Trump because they love the tax breaks, they love the deregulation, but what they don’t love is everthing for the deplorables, the fair trade, the secure borders and defense spending…

…The last thing the Koch brothers want is to pay another dime to the deplorables of this country.

Now, Marc Short in 2016 pitched an idea to the Koch brothers where he was going to wipe out the Donald on Super Tuesday.  He worked for Rubio and he came into that White House, he was incompetent. 

He failed as a legislative director, he failed running the task force for the Vice President, but he did tremendous damage because what he would always do is block whatever MAGA things that wanted to get done.  He really was responsible for some of the failures of that task force to move.

I had to push that task force with memo after memo to get him off his butt and he’s not a good guy.

What Marc Short is about is getting Pence to be President of the United States or if he can’t do that to at least be rich.  So that’s his mission…but Mike Pence basically left the Presidential race on January 6th

…What he did that day on the advice of Marc Short was to cut and run from the President of the United States and from the Constitution because you know what was going to happen on that day, Steve.  It wasn’t violence it was the Green Bay Packers sweep where we were going to pull six different states and pull those out and force under the Constituion for those votes to be looked at and counted.

And Marc Short, Marc Short was the guy who prevented that and there were people who were trying to get to the Vice President in the last 10 days before that date and Marc Short put a wall about.

Birx and Short were like two peas in a pod.
