Only CNN could find outrage in the team looking to combat the Coronavirus. Apparently diversity is more important than ability in a crisis.
CNN political writer Brandon Tensley quipped,
“Who are these experts?…They’re largely the same sorts of white men (and a couple women on the sidelines) who’ve dominated the Trump administration from the very beginning...[comparing it to Obama’s handling of the Ebola virus in 2014] Neither was it so abysmal in terms of gender diversity. (Of course, to contextualize, Obama’s administration, on the whole, was far more diverse than Trump’s.).”
Commentator Dave Rubin retorted,
“Sir, I’ve discovered the cure to the Coronovirius! We can create an intitiode and spread it worldwide within 12 hours.”
“Bob, we’ve told you repeatedly if you aren’t a non-binary latinx disabled lesbian you’re not allowed to talk.”
Welcome to 2020. Where finding a cure ASAP takes a backseat to diversity. Liberal logic.
One imagines that the Chinese authorities have a similar lack of diversity on their team to combat the Coronavirus.
