The beclowning of the CDC

This morning, the CDC finally acknowledged that COVID-19 was transmitted by air, something that has been widely understood by much of the world for months. But after posting the acknowledgment of the fact for just a few hours, the agency abruptly pulled down that post.

By pulling the post the only thing they have accomplished is putting another stake in the heart of the CDC's credibility. It really makes no sense at all. It's not like pulling the post is going to be evidence that the disease is not airborne. I'm guessing that either Trump or one of the morons close to him got wind of the CDC's post and ordered them to reverse it without considering the consequences beyond some vague idea that an airborne COVID is bad for Trump.
