Today, @CDCDirector said: "The overwhelming number of deaths, over 75%, occurred in people who had at least 4 comorbidities. So really these are people who were unwell to begin with and yes, really encouraging news in the context of Omicron." This is eugenicist.
It is "encouraging" to @CDCDirector that chronically ill & disabled Americans are dying. It's no wonder that @CDCgov has consistently refused to issue guidance protecting the health & wellbeing of chronically ill Americans – our deaths clearly don't count.Matthew Cortland
Will the @JoeBiden @WhiteHouse let these eugenicist remarks by @CDCDirector stand? Will @POTUS demand an apology and retraction? Or does President Biden agree that it's "encouraging" that chronically ill & disabled Americans are dying?Matthew Cortland
