Dr. Rachel Levine, who happens to be a transgender state official has recently come under fire after some very questionable decisions were made.
One of these decisions was to send patients who tested positive for COVID-19 back to the nursing homes from which they came, even before they got the all-clear by medical professionals.
Then, during a phone call with about 70 reporters, radio talk show host Marty Griffin "misgendered" the doctor multiple times.
Here is a transcript of the conversation:
GRIFFIN: When folks know what yellow is kind of sort of but they don't even know what green is because you don't. What's the end game, sir? Where do we get to the point where folks can be confident they can conduct business if they do it safely and there's no time frame and there's no window? Correct me if I'm wrong, sir ... ma'am.
GRIFFIN: How do you respond, doctor, to the conjecture that your response is jeopardizing the health and well being of seniors by moving them into nursing facilities even if they're no longer COVID positive, sir?
LEVINE: So please don't misgender me.
GRIFFIN: I'm so sorry.
LEVINE: It's really insulting.
GRIFFIN: I apologize. It's not malicious. I apologize. I'm so sorry.
Griffin seems to honestly have been sincere in his apology. He even posted an explanation on Twitter to apologize again.
I apologize. I apologized twice. I truly did. It was not intentional. It was not. I was not focused. I was doing six things at once. https://t.co/cdBO9r1iF8

But it wasn't enough for Levine, who also tweeted:
"Cancelled interview w/ Lynne Hayes-Freeland for tomorrow. Not upset w/her, she’s always been a fair, strong journalist. But will not support
@KDKARadio behavior. Growing up, KDKA had good people who made us proud to be from Pittsburgh. Now, it shock-jocks, sensationalism & worse."

Levine and the entire Pennsylvania health department have come under fire for their stupid policy which put COVID-19 postive patients back in nursing homes before they had recovered which turned out to be a policy that led to an eruption of coronavirus cases across the state. “Nearly 70% of Pennsylvania’s Covid-19 deaths, 2611 of 3806, have occurred in nursing homes or long-term care facilities,” the Daily Wire reported Wednesday.
However, she pulled her own mother out of the nursing home before she could be infected.

Report: LA Prisoners Released Without COVID-19 Testing
Not only is it crazy that prison inmates are being released due to coronavirus concerns, but according to reports, they're being released without being tested for coronavirus....at least not according to a county official in Los Angeles County, California anyway.
Inmates are allegedly being released without being given a coronavirus test. Which really does not make sense considering they are releasing the prisoners over concerns of the virus spreading. Yet they are not being tested? Wack.

There are many lockdown cheerleaders out there. You know, the people who get on Facebook and demand you stay in your house.

Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak took to Twitter to call out the hypocrisy of those who are telling people to stay home when they are able to earn a living themselves. Such as journalists, disc jockeys or talk show hosts.
FDA Brings Bill Gates Coronavirus Testing Program to a Halt
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has brought the Bill Gates coronavirus testing program to a stop, pending reviews.
The program, which was sponsored by Bill Gates and Seattle health officials, sought to send tests to the homes of both sick and healthy people. A goal of the program was to get the United States to a high enough number of people tested to reopen the country. Thousands of tests had already been administered by the program, finding many cases that were previously undiagnosed.
Maxine Waters: President Trump Only Worried About His 'White Power Pep Rallies'
"Everyone is racist" continues to be the battle cry of the left. Recently Rep. Maxine Waters said that President Trump couldn't care less about coronavirus death, but is far more concerned about re-opening the economy so he can hold his "white power pep rallies."
Waters tweeted, "Trump doesn’t care about the 80,000+ people who’ve died from #Coronavirus! He only wants to open up the economy so he can go back to having his white power pep rallies! The death & economic devastation we are facing is b/c Trump failed to act early & called #COVID19 a HOAX!"
