White House denies report that Dr. Birx is considering stepping down

The White House responded to rumors that infectious disease expert Dr. Deborah Birx may be planning to quit the White House coronavirus task force, declaring the story is “false.”

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta claimed that “sources familiar with her thinking” claimed that Birx is “unhappy” in the White House and uncertain “how much longer she can serve in her position.”

Acosta claimed that Birx is “distressed” with the “direction of the task force,” especially after the recent addition of Dr. Scott Atlas to the committee.

Alyssa Farah, White House communications director, quickly destroyed the anonymous claim, revealing that Birx has rejected the notion that she’s dissatisfied with her role on the task force.

“I spoke to Dr. Birx, this story is false. But more importantly: it’s 2020. She’s not some ‘distressed’ damsel. She’s a highly qualified public health official, Ambassador, unflappable leader of the Task Force, & she’s tough as nails,” Farah tweeted on Wednesday.

Acosta himself admitted in the report that Birx never responded to his request for a comment on the rumors, further solidifying the claim’s status as a malicious rumor.

  1. You have to be kidding me! “sources familiar with her thinking” Is this how CNN and Acosta are getting their material for the news? More great reporting from CNN.

    1. Dr Birx has little to add. I’m glad that she along with Fauci are no longer the main sources of any information having to do with COVID-19. COVID-19 is waaaaay down on the list of many diseases that are considered deadly. The numbers of diseases have taken a voracious number of lives since the 1930’s does NOT include COVID-19. It has now been proven that COVID-19 is hardly a disease that should have shut down our country. COVID-19 was used by THE LEFT as a political ploy….nothing else. The true numbers have finally been made public and they are not even as bad as pneumonia or other diseases such as TB!! COVID-19 has, just as the pneumonia, the flu or even a very bad cold will have a very bad effect upon the elderly and those with existing health issues. THIS IS HARDLY anything that should be used politically….but of course due to the corrosion of the DEMOCRAT PARTY they have grabbed in with a ferocity because it’s all they had. I cannot even express in in the ENGLISH Language how evil the Democrat Party has become in my personal opinion.

    2. Always someone who knows someone who is a frend of someone! What kind of journalistic standard does CNN have? NONE; ZERO ethics and zilch seriousness. They all flunked journalism.! Wow they make me SICK!

  2. ACOSTA SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED IN THE BRIEFINGS OR THE WHIT HOUSE HE IS AN ABSOLUTE TEOUBLEMAKER AND A LIAR. PLEASE KEEP HIM AWAY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE HE IS DEMONIC WAYNE 25 YEAR 100% DISABLED VETERAN HE IS A VERY VICIOUS PERSON MAGA PRAY FOR AMERICA. GOD BLESS KAYLEIGH

      1. I know. I see his little pouty face and wish I could tell Kayleigh or the President to pat him on the head, give him a cookie and send him home! (Or bust his butt and stand him in the corner!)

  3. Jim Acosta indeed is a liar and a troublemaker. Why is he so vindictive? He is not a happy person. Black people like myself have stopped listening to his lies. When he speaks I mute the sound. I don’t listen to any word that comes out his mouth anymore. Period!

  4. This A-hole Acosta will do, and say anything to cause chaos. He is the worst journalist I’ve ever seen…he needs to be gone, and the WH should not allow him anywhere near them, as he distorts everything. He lies, he’s a snake, real sneaky. Piece of scum. Can you imagine having to live with this POS? Hope he doesn’t have a mate or kids. I pity them. NOTHING BUT TROUBLE WITH HIM

  5. I NEVER WATCH, THAT CHANNEL! NOR CBS, NOR ANY OF THE CHANNELS THAT NEVER REPORT THE TRUTH, THEY ALWAYS MEKE UP STORY AGAINST THE REPOPLICAN PARTY AND REPOPLICAN PRESIDENT.

  6. MAKE ALL NEWS MEDIA GIVE THEIR SOURCE AND IF CAUGHT IN A LIE, OR GIVE THEIR PERSONAL OPINION TO HUIRT AND PERSON RUNNING FOR OFFICE, PULL THEIR LICENSE AND NOT ALLOW THEM BACK IN THE NEWSMEDIA FOR 5 YEARS. JIM ACOSTA SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED IN ANY MEETING ALL HE WANTS TO TO IS ARGUE AND NEVER REALLY WILL ACCEPT AN ANSWER AND SHUT UP.

    1. I wish the media had to report the news under oath and if they lie or fail to provide sources be tried for perjury. The left has amended and add to our second amendment rights for years. It is about time the 1st amendment is clarified. Not freedom of speech, but freedom of the press. What it is and what it is not. E.g. freedom of the press is not the freedom to lie, deliberately distort, spin, rearrange, omit to change the context of what is said by an individual or politician. it is not the freedom to use the press to further their agenda, not the freedom to spread lies in an effort to deliberately destroy individual citizens or political opponents. The freedom of the press is not the freedom to try and convict – that is for the courts. When they are reporting the news it should be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I can dream, can’t I? I am so sick of lies!

      1. In the “good old days” of news reporting, any news ‘story’ was PREFACED with the source, verifications, etc., and woe to any source who lied ! Thos days of integrity in news-reporting are gone! Now we have moron-level LIARS who will print ANYHING for a headline. Progress ?!?!? NO !!!

  7. American Digest, what’s wrong with you? Put out a click bait story like this with a headline just to draw someone in. And ANYTHING with Jim Acosta’s name on it isn’t fit for public consumption anyway. Story written by staff writers so no one takes responsibility for this tripe. Who are you kidding.
    Close my account, I’m done.

  8. So many false stories have come from the Leftist media and their allies for the past 4 yrs.. anyone listening to them or the Dems are obviously brainwashed and fall for every lie. It’s disgusting already and most of us are completely awake.

  9. I don’t know why they bother calling on the idiot. I guess so everyone can see what a real twit he is. Jeez, like he is actually a real journalist.

  10. I’d remove his press credentials and show him the door. This guy is like having a rattlesnake in the room.
    He parses and twists your statements, takes things out of context to make it appear negative and reports it as news.

  11. I’m pretty sure that if Trump had a rat in the house, he would figure out pretty quick, and take proper steps to remediate the issue. Love him, hate him, whatever, but he’s not stupid. It’s just the left using the last “arrows in their quiver”. They do not need about that much about their arrows, they need to worry about using them wisely if that is even possible for them.

  12. The Democratic party should be dismantled they’re so corrupt it’s about power and not about the American people or the country what a disgrace they all are Acosta he’s still calling himself a reporter one we can trust? I don’t trust him
