📍ATLAS SHRUGGED & PEOPLE DIED. Trump’s WH pandemic advisor Scott Atlas arm-twisted CDC to say no need to test asymptomatic people for #COVID19 *even if exposed to virus*—angering Drs. Birx & Redfield. Atlas now tied with Miller for worst Trump advisor. 🧵nytimes.com/2020/10/16/bus…
2) “Many public health experts say that a far more sweeping program would save lives and bolster the economy by helping as many Americans as possible learn quickly if they are infected. Atlas and other WH officials virus response effectively say the opposite: (super dangerous)
3) “Congressional Dems have grown so frustrated with WH testing efforts that as part of any aid agreement, they insisted on language to carry out a far more prescriptive national program for administering and distributing tests. WH negotiators resisted those demands for months”
4) Atlas has a LONG LONG history of telling false #COVID19 info. He previously claimed he *never* advised opening schools that is not according to safety/science. Yet, here is is doing exactly that.
5) Furthermore, Scott Atlas (who wants ‘herd immunity’ plow-through approach and get folks infected) now tells folks kids have “no serious risks” from #COVID19 & “very safe”. Thousands of kids in 🏥 w/ COVID would like a word. (HT video @DWUhlfelderLaw)
6) Here is Atlas further doubling down on the “infect everyone” / “herd immunity” plow through approach without vaccine. This has been wholly discredited by any credible public health expert and WHO. #COVID19

📍"19-year old pregnant inmate was repeatedly raped by a prison guard—Amy Coney Barrett ruled the county responsible for prison not liable because sexual assaults fell outside of guard's official duties.” Lower court had ruled liable—but ACB overturned it. salon.com/2020/10/16/wat… Image
2) “Barrett was one of the three judges on a Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals panel which reversed a $6.7 million verdict against Milwaukee County in 2018 after a corrections officer was charged with repeatedly raping a pregnant 19-year-old inmate.
3) “Former corrections officer Xavier Thicken was charged with multiple counts of sexual assault in 2013 after the woman alleged that he had raped her during and after her pregnancy at a jail run by the controversial former Sheriff David Clarke.”

➡️ PREDICTION: 9 million cases by Election Day. Why?

It took US ~25 days to grow from 6==>7 mil cases.

But it took only 20 days to grow from 7==>8 mil cases yesterday.

⚠️It’s accelerating.

Trajectory shows that 8–>9 million will take just 15-18 days ➡️ by Election Day.
2) here is the timeline of how we got from 1 million to 8 million. Again 9 million likely by Election Day. See above^
