Skip to comments.Who Is Dr. Scott Atlas? Trump's New Covid Health Adviser Seen As Counter To Fauci And Birx
Posted on 08/12/2020 5:37:50 PM PDT by conservative98
After months of butting heads with his medical experts, including the governments top infectious disease official, Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Trump introduced a new adviser to the administration during his coronavirus briefing on Monday, Dr. Scott Atlas, whose views on Covid-19 and school reopenings more closely match the president's.
A senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, a conservative think tank, Atlas is not an infectious disease expert hes board-certified in diagnostic radiology, which means he specializes in reading and interpreting imaging like X-rays, CT scans and MRIs, and he served as a professor and chief of neuroradiology at Stanford University Medical Center from 1998 to 2012.
Described on his Stanford bio as someone who "investigates the impact of government and the private sector" on healthcare and medical technology and innovation, Atlas joined Mitt Romney's campaign for president in 2012 as a healthcare adviser. He had criticized Romney in 2007 over his healthcare plan while supporting New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani's bid for president.
Atlas has recently appeared as a guest on Trump's preferred news channel, Fox, calling on school districts and colleges to open their doors for in-person instruction and railing against the "frenzy" around mass testing.

And who is Matt Perez? Just some video game reporter geek regurgitating the democrat party line. Which means he is not a reporter. He is a Democrat opinionist and specializes in video games.
Finally! An important step at least. (And yes, AJ had the story ahead of time.)
Matt Perez, useless video game nerd for Forbes
Here's Dr. Scott Atlas, @realDonaldTrump's newest coronavirus task force member, getting off on the right foot by making the case for a 2020 college football season.
"Theres not a lot of obese, diabetic 78-year-olds playing football."

Very encouraging news.
Atlas has recently appeared as a guest on Trump’s preferred news channel, Fox,
At least he’s not afraid to go on something more fair and balanced. All Fauci does is go on endless leftwing talk shows.
I think he’s pretty good, though in an establishment sort of way. Ricochet.com has had some interviews with him over the months.
Looks like he could be homo pajama boy’s homo brother.
And a dead ringer for the infamous Pajama Boy used for Obamacare propaganda.
This is Scott Atlas, Scott is a very famous man whos also very highly respected Stanford

I have been following Atlas since the ScamDemic first started. Fauci should be called Fallacy and Birx should be BRICKS head
From a couple of YouTubes, he seems to be no Wild Pitcher when it comes to “The Science”.
Is Trump going to have task force meetings in front of cameras again where Atlas is the point person?
Is he a Catcher?
Here’s the briefing before the briefing with Atlas, note no Dr. Fauci:

Says Atlas will be speaking more at the briefing.
Thank you! That is great news. I’ll watch but was scarfy there? She needs to go too, asap.
It seems that forbes left out the part that Dr. Scott Atlas does not chair his local chapter of the hillary fan club like fauchi does.
