MSNBC’s O’Donnell: Birx Gave Answer to ‘Protect Any Republican’ with Bad Ideas on Georgia

On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” host Lawrence O’Donnell accused White House Coronavirus Task Force member Dr. Deborah Birx of giving “the kind of answer that a Republican Party lawyer would give, an answer designed to protect any Republican officeholder with a bad idea” in her answer on Georgia reopening some businesses.

O’Donnell said, “Dr. Deborah Birx was asked about this at the White House briefing today. And once again, Dr. Birx gave the kind of answer that a Republican Party lawyer would give, an answer designed to protect any Republican officeholder with a bad idea. Dr. Birx actually said that it’s perfectly okay to open those businesses as long as you can maintain social distancing inside those businesses. Social distancing for a massage, social distancing for a tattoo, social distancing, six feet away, for haircutting. Dr. Birx actually pretended that all of those things are possible.”
