For the life of me, I can't figure out what it is that the folks in the CDC, just to use one example out of thousands, think they're preserving when they jammed absolute rubbish down our throats in the past and now backtrack and tell us what many of us knew at the time. Dig this.
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky acknowledged that over 75% of COVID deaths were people “who had at least four comorbidities” and were “unwell to begin with.”
Walensky made the remarks during an appearance on Good Morning America.
“The overwhelming number of deaths, over 75%, occurred in people who had at least four comorbidities,” said Walensky. “So really these are people who were unwell to begin with.”
Clay Travis at Outkick pins the tail on the donkey, but that still doesn't help me explain why.
The CDC director just said over 75% of “covid deaths” occurred in people with at least four comorbidities. Since Biden can’t shut down covid, suddenly all this data is getting shared publicly. pic.twitter.com/NKvproy3lx

Update: Some have claimed that her statements were taken out of context and only refer to vaccinated deaths, but the general data show almost the same thing - heaps of deaths with comorbidities. Panicking the general population was unwarranted.
The dementia patient we have as president is floundering and when the election heats up, the airwaves will be full of this supercut.
His promise was clearly stupid at the time, but the CDC and others rallying to his defense only deepens my confusion.
Just what is it that they're defending? Inflation? $30T of debt? Record-setting murder rates in 12 of our large cities? I could go on and on, but I think that's enough to make the point. I can understand the instinct to fight for your blue team, but when the blue world is crumbling all around you, why keep up the charade?
I've written before about our ultra-progressive, modern Nazi friends who have sworn off their Mecca, San Francisco, because it's such a disaster. Now they've decided to change their minds about the transgender mania because it's happening to some of their young relatives and they can see the damage. Reality is having its say and these proggiest of progs are recoiling at the results.
Fair enough. We're watching them get red pilled in real time. They're complete racial justice maniacs, so maybe the ultimate red pill will be to realize that they've supported the slaughter of half the black population through abortion all these years. After all, what difference does it make if half of all black babies are killed in the womb today or born and shoved into gas chambers when they're five? It's all the same. Dead is dead.
Going back to that interview with CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, she's clearly fighting a rear guard action, defending the regime. By regime, I mean the whole Gramscian-trampled progressive power structure including the government, the massive corporations, the media, the universities and the entertainment and education industries. But why? What is it that she's actually defending?
Here's Jake Tapper, who couldn't be more of a prostitute for the regime if he wore 3" heels, fishnet stockings and a vinyl miniskirt and stood on the street corner every night, telling us what we all knew all along. He's doing it because the narrative is crumbling. It's just one more rear guard action in defense of ... what?

"We're 2 years into this ... if somebody's in the hospital with a broken leg and they also have asymptomatic COVID, that should not be counted as hospitalized with covid, clearly." pic.twitter.com/rZhcANyYaW
