As the media hail president-elect Joe Biden’s appointment of the first-ever trans cabinet official, few note how she presided over a massive Covid-19 death toll in care homes in her prior post as Pennsylvania’s health secretary.
Biden announced on Tuesday that he will appoint Dr. Rachel Levine as assistant health secretary in his administration, setting her up to become the first openly transgender official confirmed by the Senate.
Levine has served in her post as Pennsylvania health secretary since 2018 and, before that, was the state’s assistant health secretary for a year. She had previously spent two years as physician general for Pennsylvania.
Biden has made a point of packing his administration with demographic “firsts.” He praised Levine as a “historic and deeply qualified choice to help lead our administration’s health efforts.”
“Dr. Rachel Levine will bring the steady leadership and essential expertise we need to get people through this pandemic – no matter their zip code, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability,” the president-elect continued.
Despite the praise she has received from her new boss, Levine came under fire during the early months of the Covid-19 pandemic for moving her 95-year-old mother out of a care home in May – an act many have highlighted as proof she knew what carnage her policies were causing.
The health secretary had in March required long-term care facilities to accept Covid-positive patients who had been discharged from hospitals – a policy that led to massive death tolls in such residences. Fully 70 percent of Pennsylvania’s deaths with Covid-19 had taken place in care homes at the time Levine removed her mother from her facility. Other Democrat-run states that enacted similar policies, such as New York and Michigan, also saw astronomical death tolls in care homes.

It’s gotta face like a ripped boot.
“Her?” More like “it.”
“H.R., the Tranny’s swingin’ it in the Ladies again!”
Not even “it” it is a mentally ill he.
Does this person still have a penis? Or is it kept in a jar somewhere?
Of course he would. Deviancy in this communist regime is no surprise.

History has shown when doctors are evil, they’re really evil.
Why go half crazy?
What an absolute MOCKERY of this great country, putting a mentally ill perverse thing like that in a high position.
Any outlet which requires the reader to gender-invert pronouns to discern the gender of a person in question should not be considered a serious publication.
How is that an improvement?
His name is Richard and he is a man with long hair. Period.
And then one day, for no reason at all, people voted Hitler into power.
“putting a mentally ill perverse thing like that in a high position.”
We did as President.
In the new Democrat party, murdering innocent people is a resume enhancer.
Is this a case of sexual approbation ?
Another 'identity politics' nominee, rather than based on meritocracy.
I was always told that the best indicator of future behavior .. is past behavior.
Boy, are we in trouble.. ?
Good work, Joe....you’re inviting trouble and incompetence and it won’t serve anyone well.
