History Will Agree That Trump Used Americans as Lab Rats

Remember the morally abominable Tuskegee experiments? They were conducted on 600 men. But Donald Trump just Tuskegeed an entire nation.

Wednesday was a bad day in the fight against COVID-19. The government announced a record number of deaths, more than 3,600. Meanwhile, a House committee released internal Trump administration messages, which demonstrated that Americans were unknowing lab rats in the president’s grail-quest for herd immunity.

In a July 4, 2020 email, Paul Alexander, a political appointee at the Department of Health and Human Services, spelled it all out. In his words, infants, young adults, and middle-aged folks with no conditions had “zero risk,” and were there to take the hit as America marched off a cliff. “We want them infected,” declared Alexander.

Unfortunately, the administration never asked their permission to become human guinea pigs. Indeed, as fate would have it, younger Americans are now dying at historic rates, according to a study recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. As for herd immunity, it’s a lot like waiting for Godot.

But then again, Alexander is the same fellow who also tried to muzzle Anthony Fauci and criticized the CDC as alarmist. In fact, he even commented that the agency’s COVID warning to pregnant women read as if it were designed to frighten as opposed to inform. As Alexander saw things, the agency was portraying the president and his administration as if they “can’t fix this” and that things are “getting worse.”

1. I think he was lazy, didn't want to do any work. And he doesn't care if people die. So he went along

with the theory that was easy for him.

5. Exactly. He still doesn't care that there are over 300,000 deaths and there will be many more. nt

3. Actually, Mitch McConnell will be held responsible.

His ludicrous defense of Trump in the Senate trial proves his complicity.
