  1. A sociopath willing to let his most adamant followers die for a rally;
    will have no qualms letting random strangers die for lack of healthcare

    • Oh, yes.

    • Herman Caine and his family are most likely regretful about going to one of Trumps hate rallies maskless. The man was a Trump supporter and also Black? Go figure.

    • @j welsh I wonder, has his family ever spoken about it or are they complicit in their silence?

    • @Marie Tea “are they complicit in their silence?”
      Can you explain that statement?

      @G Guest By not saying anything and voicing their opinion, they may be in agreement with Drumpf’s callous actions. But they clearly are complicit as you can’t say you disagree with something by not saying anything.

  2. Finally some leadership besides Dr. Fauci in the public health field. Dr. Redfield should have realized that in the long run history would have a better view of him if he stood up to trump.

  3. Too little too late. It is not just the WH enablers and GOP fawning accomplices that need to be held liable, there is a whole host of professionals and elite of society who have held their council for too long.

    Every federal organization has been corrupted by trump!! GOP/trump……BLUE TSUNAMI is coming!!

  5. When the New England Journal of Medicine writes that t’rump and the republicans all need to be voted out as a public safety measure, that is NOT a good sign. 😂🤣


  7. Redfield has been inexcusably WEAK.

    • What alternative course of action do you suggest he could have taken, understanding that Trump fires anyone and everyone that goes against his narrative? The CDC and Redfield ARE NOT the villains in this. The common denominator here is all of this is Donald Trump.
      Before you use hyperbola like, “inexcusably weak”, provide an alternative course of action.

  8. Typhoid Trump is a danger to everyone.

  9. Redfield doesn’t have the courage to stand up to a toddler throwing a tantrum. Sadly, he’s the only choice we have. We can fix this on Nov 3rd. Vote Blue!

  10. Donald Trump is more Dangerous than Covid 19..
    VOTE HIM OUT!!!👉

  11. I just wish that anyone having any dealing with this Administration find their Voice Speak Loud & Clear against the Atrocity by t’Rump’s Death Cult. This must change what is everyone so afraid of Speak Up Now!

  12. If he was man enough to stand up to Trump, I think he already would have. It can’t be the money, the guy surely can get some other gig that pays more!

  13. “It is a slaughter…and not just a political pursuit.” Can you imagine Trumpty Dumpty has created a reality where we are actually reading and hearing these words~? I am shocked.

  14. So basically, he’s asking Redfield to reclaim his balls and/or grow a spine.

  15. Doesn’t carry any weight with Trump simply because he was recognized for his service by Obama.

  16. If that letter was sent to Dr. Redfield a month ago and Dr. Redfield still has not done anything, I doubt Dr. Redfield is going to start now.

  17. I hope Robert Redfield finally stands up and does what is right. America will stand with you

  18. Robert Redfield is just a spineless puppet … the fact that he received this letter and STILL didn’t act proves it.

    Any other year, it would be Congress investigating why the CDC had not acted more strongly.

    “I don’t think science knows” -person who claimed there were airports in 1776
