WATCH: Dr. Deborah Birx Lavishes Praise on Trump’s Understanding of Scientific Data

For a number of days Dr. Anthony Fauci was the calming part of Donald Trump’s daily COVID-19 press conferences. After Fauci gave an interview where he talking about pushing Trump away from the microphone, he’s been seen less and less.

Dr. Fauci has seemingly been replaced by Dr. Deborah Birx who also has an impressive track record in Washington. During a Friday interview with the Christian Broadcast Network, though, Dr. Birx came off sounding like your average Donald Trump sycophant.

In the early days of the President’s briefings, he made a number of mistakes that needed to be corrected. In one instance, the FDA had to tell Americans that a drug hadn’t been approved after Trump said that it had.

According to Birx, though, Trump has a great mind for science. She told CBN, “He is so attentive to the scientific literature and the details and the data, and I think his ability to analyze and integrate data that comes out of his long history in business has really been a real benefit during these discussions about medical issues.”

Many on Twitter were aghast at the Doctor’s comments. The best response may have come from former Obama Ambassador Michael McFaul. He tweeted, “Cmon. I worked for Obama for five years. He is one of the smartest people Ive met (& Ive worked most of my life at a university). No Obama official EVER talked on tv about him this way. & Dr. Birx is talking about Trump, not Obama. We need experts talking facts right now!”
