President Trump and Dr. Deborah Birx met with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis at the White House. They make a great team. They tag-teamed today to get the facts straight and to tell Yahoo’s Hunter Walker to knock off the fake news reports.
Dr. Birx corrected Walker on his fake news:
Yahoo’s Walker: South Korea has done 5 times more tests than the US per capita. Why is that?
President Trump: I don’t think that’s true
Walker: That is true, and you said the US passed South Korea in virus testing
Trump: I don’t think that’s true. Who are you with?
At this point, President Trump had Dr. Birx answer: I just want to make it clear South Korea’s testing was 11 per 100k, and we’re at 17 per 100k.
President Trump: Are you going to apologize, Yahoo? That’s why you’re Yahoo, and nobody knows who the hell you are.
Dr. Birx: Just check it again.

Dr. Birx defended President Trump last weekend when the media took a comment he made during a press conference and twisted it like a pretzel. The fake news ran with the story and kept it up all weekend in a sickening display of bias against President Trump.
DR. BIRX DEFENDS PRESIDENT TRUMP:
Dr. Deborah Birx went from being a hero of Trump-bashers to a zero today when she went after the fake news media during interviews on CNN and Fox News. She’s fed up with the news media attacking President Trump over and over for everything he says or even implies. The fake news media even twisted Trump’s words to mean that he thinks people should be injected with Lysol. Nancy Pelosi repeated the fake news during her press conference last week.
Dr. Birx appeared on several news shows this weekend to set the record straight and to show support for the president. Andrea Mitchell and others questioned the credibility of Dr. Birx after she showed her support and understanding of what President Trump says and what he does.
Jesse Watters asked Dr. Birx if the media has been fair to President Trump during ‘Watters World’:
She replied by basically calling out the fake news media that is “very slicey and dicey about how they put sentences together in order to get headlines.”

Dr. Birx was on CNN and told Jake Tapper:
“It bothers me that this is still in the news cycle,” Dr. Birx says of the president’s Thursday remarks. She says the importance of the study got lost because the focus was on what Trump said. “I think I’ve made it clear that this was a musing as you describe.”

Dr. Birx was also on ‘Meet the Press’ where she defended the president:
“Sunlight may be able to kill the virus.”
