Skip to comments.Biden says he’s ‘bringing back the pros’ for virus briefings

For nearly a year it was the Trump show. Now President Joe Biden is calling up the nation’s top scientists and public health experts to regularly brief the American public about the pandemic that has claimed more than 425,000 U.S. lives.
Beginning Wednesday, administration experts will host briefings three times a week on the state of the outbreak, efforts to control it and the race to deliver vaccines and therapeutics to end it.
Expect a sharp contrast from the last administration’s briefings, when public health officials were repeatedly undermined by a president who shared his unproven ideas without hesitation.
“We’re bringing back the pros to talk about COVID in an unvarnished way,” Biden told reporters Tuesday. “Any questions you have, that’s how we’ll handle them because we’re letting science speak again.”
The new briefings, beginning just a week into Biden’s tenure, are meant as an explicit rejection of his predecessor’s approach to the coronavirus outbreak.
President Donald Trump claimed center stage and muddled the message of the nation’s top public health experts in the critical early days of the virus and eventually largely muzzled them as the pandemic’s mortal toll grew steeper.
The new briefings are part of Biden’s attempt to rebuild public confidence in institutions, particularly the federal government, with a commitment to share the bad news with the good.
“I’ll always level with you about the state of affairs,” he said Tuesday, repeating a central pledge of his inaugural address.

“The new briefings, beginning just a week into Biden’s tenure, are meant as an explicit rejection of his predecessor’s approach to the coronavirus outbreak.”
IOW, Biden is choosing his advisors on the basis of whether they agree with Biden or with Trump. How ‘scientific’.
Progressives promoting the literal worship of "experts".
It's the golden ticket to justifying anything to naïve, stupid people.
I wanna see the dude with the 5 O’Clock shadow doing the briefings!
2 weeks to flatten the curve.
Masks don’t work.
Masks absolutely work but we need to lock down anyway.
2 masks are better than 1.
Science demands that only OUR facts are correct and nobody should contradict us - https://www.foxnews.com/politics/dr-scott-atlas-fires-back-at-birx-over-bizarre-claim-he-gave-trump-parallel-data-streams-on-covid
Dr Fauci a pro?
at what? messing up everything he touches? Fauci is a complete and total MORON who intentionally LIED (and has since admitted that he did) about masks and their effectiveness at the beginning of all this. That LIE has caused untold harm and killed 100’s of thousands.
“We’re bringing back the pros ...”
That actually sounds like Biden and not his handlers. If he had only thrown a “man” on there at the end.
Oh. That’s good.
The WHO and the CCP
That’s fine, I can tune out the “pros” just as well as I did Fauci and Birx and their ever-changing advice and directives.
We were told Fauci and Brix were the Pros and Trump needed to listen to their science. Which he did. Now the are not the Pro’s and we need new Pro’s?
It’s a shell game. This old fool had no plan. It was talk to rile up his base and then drop E/O on his desk from Rice/Harris and the criminal Dems.
Does he mean people with common sense or that he’s digging up Mengele right now?
Oh who am I kidding? Common sense left with President Trump.
Dr. Fraudci’s reported salary was $417,000... he made more than the President. Let that sink in!
Like Obama and Biden with climate change, systemic racism and that religion of peace thing.
I would listen to them over Bidet’s “pros”.
And I am sure his son is bring in his ‘pros’ as well.
Biden will let them take the flak
Trump didn’t collect his salary
