CNN Attains Peak Stupid

You will not be surprised to learn that life imitates the Babylon Bee. Two days ago, I posted a BB satirical report, to the effect that Yale University Medical School had removed from its curriculum all the medical knowledge discovered by white males.

Today, not to be outdone in the leftist race to peak stupidity, CNN offers a comment on a new Trump administration task force. The task force, comprised of the best people we have in biomedical science and epidemiology, lacks sufficient diversity. 

Brandon Tensley offers this mindless piece of nonsense:

It's a statement that's as predictable as it is infuriating: President Donald Trump's administration lacks diversity.

On Tuesday, Trump tweeted photos of a briefing he'd received on the new coronavirus spreading out of China.

"We will continue to monitor the ongoing developments," the President said in his post. "We have the best experts anywhere in the world, and they are on top of it 24/7!"

Who are these experts? They're largely the same sorts of white men (and a couple women on the sidelines) who've dominated the Trump administration from the very beginning.

CNN offers a picture of the Obama administration task force on Ebola. Prominent in the picture is one Susan Rice, who knows nothing about medical science.

So, this is what matters. The complexions and the chromosomal makeup of the task force. I need not mention it, but obviously, Tensley himself is not a white male. Duh?

I'm not allowed to speak, even here one of the few last places of free speech.

From what I’ve read about the spread of modern day typhus in Los Angeles, perhaps the local authorities there could provide some ‘diverse’ personnel? They must be experts on the spread of infectious diseases by now...
