AND push the State Department to explain why they're funding not only virology research in China, but specifically gain of function research. I would like my elected representative to ask very pointed questions into how this is in my interest.That's where this is changing.
That lying dummy Trump pushed this explanation at some point between magically going away, hoax virus, bleach injections, The Hydroxy, and the nephelem sperm lady.
Being the racist, flailing shitbag he was, the idea was dismissed as another xenophobic crackpot scapegoating, of which the scientific community was also interested in letting go.
But where we are now, lots of researchers / few answers, lots of stonewalling by China, a credible administration and a China skeptical nation wanting answers why the economy was destroyed and 600,000 Americans are dead?
This is not going away by a long shot.
Besides, what else do Republicans have to talk about? Plus if Democrats reflexively defend the Chinese, then they walk right into a 2022 midterm trap.
Ds need to lean right into this and demand answers. If it's from a SARS/MERS like transmission, then push china to open up and prove it. And if it's not... Oh shit.
