Michael Reagan, the dullest of St. Ronald the Magnificent’s children, went on a Newsmax TV show and said some of the dumbest things yet said about the Ebola problem. Amid all of the inane things the right has said about it, these actually stick out as being particularly stupid:
“Why do we have a political appointment here? Why not put a doctor?” Reagan asked John Bachman and Olga Villaverde on “America’s Forum” on Newsmax TV Friday. http://www.newsmaxtv.com “If you’re going to have an Ebola czar, why not put somebody in charge that really understands what is going on with Ebola?”
“What happened with the surgeon general of the United States of America? Where is the surgeon general at this point? Do we have one? I don’t know because I haven’t heard anything from the surgeon general, which is the top doctor in the United States of America,” he said.
“Why not put Dr. [Mehmet] Oz in charge of it? Why not put somebody in charge who’s a doctor? Somebody who works in that field and really understands it? Somebody who can talk to the people at the CDC, who can talk to the nurses at the hospitals, who can talk with some kind of knowledge of what we’re facing instead of somebody who is just another political appointment?” he asked.
“I don’t feel better because Ron Klain is going to be the Ebola Czar,” he added. “I’d feel better if it was Dr. Oz.”
Dr. Oz is a fraud, a snake oil salesman pushing miracle diet pills and homeopathic bullshit. If you’d feel better having him in charge, you’re a moron.
