Dr. Deborah Birx recently told CNN that the White House coronavirus task force under President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence took a few wrong turns and could have saved hundreds of thousands more lives had they gone in a better direction.

In a CNN special report called, "The Pandemic Doctors Speak Out," Dr. Birx claims that she was "marginalized every day." 

Birx went on to identify the "biggest mistake made by the task force," being "the lack of consistent messaging."

Gupta tweeted that he considered Birx to be the most "introspective and reflective" of all the doctors he interviewed on the pandemic. She also revealed the tension between her and Trump after a CNN interview in which she warned that the pandemic is widespread and that we're not as protected as we think we are.

"It was a CNN report in August that got horrible pushback," she explained. "That was a very difficult time, because everybody in the White House was upset with that interview and the clarity that I brought about the epidemic. I got called by the president. It was very uncomfortable, very direct and very difficult to hear."

Birx also claimed that people "inside" were cheering for her to make a "misstep."

In the same special, Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted having to "directly contradict" President Trump on COVID-19.

Drs. Birx and Fauci were once both heroes of all Americans. But once they started turning on President Trump, moving the goalposts, and breaking COVID rules, Americans quickly lost their admiration for the health experts.
