President Trump: Stop Ignoring the Medical Experts Regarding Covid-19

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Fire COVID-19 adviser who has dismissed masks and social distancing while promoting dangerous herd immunity.

In arguably the most high-profile case resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the President and First Lady of the United States have tested positive and potentially exposed hundreds of people. While the country hopes for the safety and stability of this family and the government as a whole, this shocking development drives home the critical and still-ongoing threat of this destructive virus. President Trump needs trusted, accurate information about the coronavirus and its effects, and he is not receiving this crucial aid from his recently installed top COVID-19 adviser Dr. Scott Atlas.

Dr. Atlas appears to have gained favor by mirroring many of the president’s own views on swift re-openings, mask-wearing, and social distancing. Despite having no experience in infectious disease, Atlas has essentially replaced other experts like Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx in guiding policy. Atlas is also on record as calling continued school closures “hysterical” overreaction and advocating for the controversial approach of mass infection known as herd immunity, an approach experts say is unlikely to work and would lead to millions more deaths in the process. Other quotes from Atlas include the claim that young people (one of the biggest surging populations for infection) “have virtually no risk” and that athletes—as their games continue to be postponed because of outbreaks—“couldn’t get a better of safer environment.”  Even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director was allegedly heard on a flight claiming of Trump’s adviser: “everything he says is false.”

Sign the petition below to urge the president, in the midst of his new diagnostic reality, to heed the warnings of long-time experts and dismiss this man who is an imminent threat to public health.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

You have now joined the unfortunate ranks of the millions of Americans who have battled or are currently battling COVID-19. We hope for your recovery and hope that you will take this most serious moment to reflect and change course for the sake of the American people. Masks, social distancing, and a cautious approach must be respected and encouraged as the country heads into the uncertain fall and winter months.

You need someone advising you on these monumental issues who understands and fully grasps the gravity of this situation. Moreover, the country needs a top COVID-19 adviser who will put their health and well-being first. Dr. Scott Atlas is not that man. His advice and guidance may have very well made you and those around you infinitely more vulnerable.  You deserve better, and the American people deserve better.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. You’d best wise up. Science works.

  2. Interesting that now he and his wife have it and they’ve given it to God knows how many people makes you wonder if she’ll change? But sadly I don’t think he will. He’s 74 years old he thinks he’s invincible and if he recovers from this he’ll laugh at all. Just the way he said it is what it is when 200,000 people died

    You reap what you sow. It was criminally irresponsible to not alert the American people sooner, to call the virus a hoax, to not follow the best advice of the CDC and WHO to require everyone to wear masks and social distance. This has cost hundreds of thousands of lives, and could cost those of the President and First Lady next.
