(PresidentialWire.com)- A former aide to Vice President Kamala Harris has publicly criticized the health and safety protocols currently used in the White House, slamming them as dangerous and exposing the hypocrisy of the situation.
Kavita Patel told Politico that if it was the Trump administration putting these measures into place, the media would be talking about how they are “putting staff and the health of their potentially unvaccinated household members in jeopardy.”
Coming out against the Democrats is a brave move. We all know how brutal they can be to detractors, but that isn’t stopping Patel.
The former Harris aide, who now works at the Brookings Institutions, previously worked with the far-left vice president on her Medicare For All plan during her failed presidential run. She is a primary care physician in Washington, D.C., and even worked with the Obama Administration where she served as the director of policy at the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement.
The fact that something so high-profile is coming forward should tell us something.
According to Politico, other White House aides have argued that there should be a system for on-demand testing for workers inside of the building, who are required to be vaccinated and wear masks. As it stands, the testing system at the White House is ineffective and only used on those who report symptoms.
Patel and others argue that the tests should be more regular to catch people who have the virus but who are currently unaware.
A current White House official defended the system to Politico, however, saying that it had been implemented in coordination with top doctors.
Doesn’t Patel have a point? If the Trump administration wasn’t performing regular testing of people regardless of whether or not they have symptoms, wouldn’t the media be accusing him of putting workers in danger?
