Dr. Birx Becomes the Symbol of the Ethically Compromised Executive
Bloomberg News posted a news item today that questions the veracity of Dr. Deborah Birx’s scientific updates about the Trump administration’s progress against fighting the CORVID virus.
In the Bloomberg article, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she “doesn’t trust information from the coordinator of the White House’s coronavirus task force (Birx), the latest political skirmish over the U.S. response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“President Donald Trump has been spreading disinformation about the virus and Deborah Birx “is his appointee, so I don’t have confidence there, no,” Pelosi said on ABC’s “This Week.'”
Dr. Birx has had her credibility questioned before. Birx famously looked at her shoes when Trump said people could ingest a disinfectant or have an ultraviolet light inserted into them that would cure the COVID virus “in a minute.” Rather than immediately object to Trump’s witchdoctor advice, Birx said nothing. She looked into her lap, but never said a word to correct Trump’s dangerous and deranged medical advice.
Birx is the Symbol of the Ethically Compromised Executive
Birx is the posterchild for the ethically compromised people who work in the Trump White House. In the past three-and-a-half years, tops officials and cabinet members have either resigned or been fired for disagreeing with Trump. Others have chosen to work there, collect their paychecks, and ignore Trump’s uninformed advice and abusive behavior.
Yet, this raises the question about whether Trump’s largest corporate financial supporters would encourage and tolerate these examples of compromised ethics, racial insults, anti-female behaviors, and comments inside of their own companies?
And as we will see in about six months, my bet is that no publicly-listed U.S. corporation will hire Trump as an executive or to become a board member, yet they continue to give his presidential campaign millions.
So, as we see in the Birx video where she looks at her shoes while Trump dispenses dangerous and unproven medical advice, corporations have to start addressing how to react to unethical behavior inside of their ranks after the Trump administration is dismantled.
