THREADETTE: I'm reading House testimony re coronavirus and had NO IDEA how ballsy @realDonaldTrump decision to ban travel from China was! Apparently, the bureaucrats ran academic models on the scenario & those concluded travel should not be banned. Cuccinelli recommended 1/
2/ ban travel anyway, but told Trump what modeling said. Trump banned travel from China and saved untold number of lives. Tell me any Democrat would have made that call!! Now, how did I discover this? Well in testimony, Rep. Titus had this to say about Trump's lifesaving call:
￼3/ Rep. Titus then went on to say: "I think it probably was and this Administration has very little respect for anything intellectual. And this is yet another example."
4/4 This is an epic case of TDS: Rep. Titus condemns Trump for being anti-intellectual for making a better call than an academic model and saving American lives!! UN-FRICKIN'-REAL.
Post-Twit: Also, I just saw C-Spans transcript was truncated: Her line was actually "Was that like bad politics as opposed to good science?" Also, has anyone seen it reported before the Trump rejected the academic model?
