You won’t believe what he said.
According to Breitbart News, CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta attacked President Donald Trump stating that he’s hiding something with his coronavirus diagnosis.
Anchor Tapper said, “Some interesting comments from Commander Conley, who before this episode had an impeccable reputation. He was asked why he didn’t give all the information yesterday, and he said he was trying to, I’m quoting, trying to reflect the upbeat attitude of the team and not give any information that would steer the course of his illness. Is that what a physician is supposed to do?”
Gupta said, “No. I mean, you’ve got to be honest. You’ve got to be transparent—all these details matter. I mean, he is out and coming out to brief the public about the president. That’s the briefing that’s happening. If you are going to do that, then you have to be absolutely honest. And it wasn’t just sort of conveying an upbeat attitude. He was — it was purposely misleading yesterday about a very basic issue, which is whether or not the president had been on supplemental oxygen is one of those issues. That’s important, Jake, because when you look at patients the way that doctors approach this, we know his age, we know his pre-existing risk factors, you can immediately start to assess his risk as more data comes in that risk sort of stratification changes. If he required oxygen, that definitely indicates that there was some impacts, significant impact on his lungs, and that puts him on a different trajectory.”
He added, “Well you know I’d have to say that they are hiding things, Jake. I mean, I hate to say it.” You can watch a clip of Gupta’s remarks here.
