Trump Calls Former Vaccine Chief a ‘Disgruntled Employee’ Who Wants to ‘Help the Democrats’

President Donald Trump says he thinks Dr. Rick Bright, the former head of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) who recently filed a whistleblower complaint, is a “disgruntled employee.”

“I never met Dr. Bright. I don’t know who he is,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Wednesday, “I didn’t hear good things about him. I did not hear good things about him at all.”

He continued, “And to me, he seems like a disgruntled employee that’s trying to help the Democrats win an election.”

Watch the video below:

On Tuesday, Bright filed a whistleblower complaint that alleges the Trump administration dismissed his early warnings about the severity of the coronavirus outbreak. 

Last month, Bright who was tasked with overseeing the development of a vaccine for the coronavirus, alleged that he was reassigned after he limited the use of two drugs Trump had touted as a “game-changer” in the fight against the coronavirus.

In his whistleblower complaint, Bright called for an investigation and reinstatement to his position as the head of BARDA. 

In a statement to The New York Times about his reassignment, Bright claimed he was being retaliated against for limiting the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, as IJR reported

Additionally, Bright said that he had hired lawyers who represented Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, of sexually assaulting her. 

Responses

  1. I suppose I can be charged with being naive, but I assumed Mr. Bright was a talented scientist, working in the public interest.

    That would not approach the naivete of someone who believed Donald J. Trump was a national hero, working in the interest of anyone but himself.

  2. Talking about vaccines…

    Because the COVID-19 virus is an RNA virus, it has now 14 variations (mutations). The most dominant / common variation is also a more contagious variant.

    This will make a lot of early work on a vaccine irrelevant, maybe useless.

    So, stay at home, stay safe, and follow the rules for your own safety.

    1. “Stay home in your basements”, etc., etc. etc. Translation: Support the American Party of Wimps and Yellow Striped Cowards. STOP thinking for yourself; your soon to be Communist Party Gov’t elitist leaders are here to care for you womb to tomb. Crumbs will be available at your neighborhood bread line. Hurry: Supplies are limited.

      Socialism/Communism + Fascism/Dictators = American Freedom is gone.

      1. Confused James The Protectionist does not care about his own life, let alone yours. All he has left is his confused rhetoric and projection

        Libertarians are trying to destroy this country and this administration is trying to allow them to do it (all of these proposed tax cuts, etc.).

        This country is going to have a MASSIVE uprising if we don’t get smarter about what we actually need to do RIGHT NOW.

        We MUST elect better politicians.

    I am confused, Your Majesty.

    Aren’t you tired of using this tired line?

    1. Hey Moron: Is the President expected to know EVERYONE in the United States – Population: 329 Million plus Illegal Invaders (or maybe the entire World) on a first name basis? What an asinine comment (as expected from you).

    2. YOU are “confused”? Or is it just plain “ignorant”? Tell us something we don’t know.

      1. We know that YOU don’t know how to protect yourself during a pandemic, and we also know that you don’t give a hoot about protecting other Americans.

        I, and people like me, do.
