Americans are tired of Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx, whose failing approaches have caused more confusion than clarity in the public’s knowledge of how the coronavirus spreads and how we can protect ourselves from it. The public doesn’t want doctors who clearly have political intentions, give inconsistent advice, and can’t give straight answers. Americans want a medical professional who has common sense, consistent opinions, and sees the country reopening in the near future.
Finally, President Trump is gearing up to reopen America by adding a doctor to the mix who is undoubtedly on the same page as him.
On Monday, the President announced at a White House press briefing that he is onboarding Doctor Scott Atlas to the coronavirus task force. Trump said he has had many great discussions about the government’s response to the pandemic with Dr. Atlas who “has many great ideas” to help them take it to the next level.

Dr. Atlas, who is highly respected in the medical field in his career as a professor and fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, has become increasingly outspoken throughout the pandemic. He is considered a conservative commentator for publicly opposing the incorrect “science” and models that Americans have been pushed to believe.
The prominent doctor is specifically in favor of schools reopening as soon as possible to prevent adverse effects on the next generation.
Dr. Atlas spoke about the level of panic plaguing parents and teachers in an interview with Fox News: “We are the only country in the world, this is a level of hysteria like this is something I feel like I’m living in a Kafka novel here. I mean, I get thousands of e-mails a week from all over the world, from professors, teachers, mothers in the United States and elsewhere, they are stunned that we are willing to just simply destroy our children out of some bizarre notion that is completely contrary to the science,” he said.
The president’s newest medical adviser has also raised arguments against several of Dr. Fauci’s statements and the efficacy of lockdowns, as well as the fear-mongering tactics used by public health officials.
Trump’s move to add Dr. Atlas to the task force comes just as his administration intends to ramp up efforts to push schools to reopen for in-person classes nationwide. Next to school re-openings, the administration is also providing incentives for businesses to reopen, people to go back to work, and collegiate sports to restart.
Marking the new relationship, Trump and Dr. Atlas began pushing college football to resume as soon as possible on Monday. The doctor backed up the President’s calls to encourage universities to “Play College Football!” as he wrote on Twitter.

Dr. Atlas said, “We have to become rational here.” He continued, “The risk for people that age is less than seasonal influenza. I mean, you have to really look at the data …You can’t say it’s all about the science and then act contrary to science.”
The doctor stated, “If people are afraid or if they have comorbidities and are afraid, I’m sure it’s ok that they can opt out, but there’s no reason to shut down out of fear here.”
Finally, there is a voice of reason on the coronavirus task force who can credibly back Trump’s plans to reopen the country. At the very least, Dr. Atlas will provide a different point of view from what we have been hearing from Birx and Fauci, who are completely out of touch with a realistic expectation of how or when America should reopen. This addition to the medical advisory team should be a breath of fresh air as we continue to fight the pandemic.
