I was one of 6 resident fellows at @harvardiop in fall of 2016. Two of them were Republicans. Both #NeverTrumpers (at that time). I'm so proud of one of them today. @ddkochel helped get rid of #WhiteNationalist @SteveKingIA last night. /1 Image
The other joined our #RacistInChief @realDonaldTrump's @USDOJ shortly after kissing us all goodbye at Harvard. I'm trying to hold on to my sense of her humanity back then, but I will never forgive @whignewtons for proudly working for an obvious racist. /2
Oh, and she strongly defended DOJ while it launched a war against my trans brothers and sisters, and jailed children and babies after ripping them from their parents at the border.

It pains me to write all this, but holding it in hurts even worse. WHITE SILENCE=DEATH /end Image

If the CDC has increased their Delta Ro because of the Ptown cohort, then they are overstating it for the general population. The cohort was 85% male (WaPo and NYT have both failed to mention this). Hello, it was Bear Week. @apoorva_nyc rightly mentions packed bars, etc., but /1
... everyone is missing the horny bear in the room. Bears go to Ptown to have lots of fun which includes lots of sex. News flash, gay men KISS when they have sex. /2
If you asked an ID expert to suggest the most efficient way for an infected vaxd person to infect another vaxd person, she'd say "let them deeply kiss for half a minute."

Hoping CDC used other cohorts for their new Ro. Ptown's is skewed by (gay) boys being boys. /end

We did it! A small gang of Tony Fauci's HIV/AIDS comrades managed to surprise him yesterday with an 80th birthday Zoom. We had the @TAGTeam_Tweets boys: me, David Barr (+husband @SamAvrett), Mark Harrington, @gregggonsalves, @AgostoMoises and @jimeigo, ... /1
... along with Lawrence “Bopper” Deyton (+ husband Jeff Levi), one of the heroic, gay, frontline AIDS docs in the 80s, having helped cofound Whitman Walker Clinic in the 70s. Tony hired him in the late 80s (partly to handle the activists! see: hsph.harvard.edu/magazine/magaz…) /2
Tony has mentored and been mentored by some of the most beloved women in the fight against AIDS, and getting these three on our Zoom felt like winning a trifecta: Doctors Wafaa El-Sadr (icap.columbia.edu/leaders/wafaa-…), Judy Auerbach (thewellproject.org/team-member/ju…), and ... /3

Dear mainstream media: if and when @realDonaldTrump starts his #COVID19 victory lap ("I stared it down and beat it back!"), please remember what actually happened. When his own life was in danger, ... /1
... he ditched all the conspiracy bunk he told his cult to use (HCQ, azithromycin), and stuff he forced the FDA to approve for political purposes (convalescent plasma), and latched on to the best science advice he could find. /2
Fascinating, this. The scientist he sidelined, Dr. Anthony Fauci, had trashed Trump's dangerous hyping of HCQ, but consistently pointed to remdesivir and mAb's as holding the most promise, the first things tried by our frightened president. /3

Great reporting by @ErinBanco & @swin24. "Central to the dysfunction, officials say, is Atlas, a Rasputin-like figure who has increasingly gotten hold of the president’s ear." @SWAtlasHoover #COVID19 /1

"Several officials who interact with the neuroradiologist expressed frustration that President Trump had put his trust in an individual who has little experience working on infectious disease outbreaks." /3

During my interview with Tony Fauci yesterday, I asked him about Scott Atlas's @SWAtlasHoover attempted takedown of @CDCDirector Redfield re how many Americans are still susceptible to #COVID19. Here's my question. /1

Full interview: instagram.com/tv/CFlEMt8Kg2B…
Here's Fauci's answer. "I thought it was extraordinarily inappropriate for [Atlas], in a press conference like that, to contradict the director of CDC... " /2
Needless to say, beyond those already previously infected, we have no evidence of widespread immunity via cross-immunity or CD4 cells. Atlas doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about. A neuroradiologist shouldn't pretend he's an immunologist. /end

I interviewed Tony Fauci yesterday for 45 mins. We geeked-out about how #COVID19 is transmitted, but also how Trump is no longer getting the best advice. If you’ve got the attention span it’s a very different conversation than ones he usually has.
