Trumpistan’s favorite doctor Scott Atlas is at it again. There seems to be a disconnect between his brain and his mouth. In short, he’s a blurter. That’s probably why the Impeached Insult Comedian likes him so much. As long as he’s useful that is.
Atlas is, of course, an exponent of Herd Immunity and freedom, man. He kicked over a holiday hornet’s nest the other day with these comments:
During an interview on Fox News, Atlas bashed the notion of staying away from elderly relatives during the holiday to protect them from the virus.
“This kind of isolation is one of the unspoken tragedies of the elderly who are now being told don’t see your family at Thanksgiving,” the doctor told Fox News host Martha MacCallum. “For many people this is their final Thanksgiving, believe it or not. What are we doing here?”
He argued that “we want to protect the elderly, but we cannot lock down.”
It sounds like a recreation of the first Thanksgiving: deadly viruses spread to the indigenous population. Guns and plenty of them. A gun horn of plenty. Sounds plenty plentiful, y’all.
I suspect Scottie agrees with young Charlie Kirk:

I’m on the record as loving Thanksgiving as does Athenae and the rest of the First Draft gang. What’s not to love about gluttony, drunkenness, and football?
In recent years, we’ve played a double even triple header on Turkey Day but not this year. Large gatherings during the pandemic are dangerous. It’s worrisome that up to 40% of Americans plan a large traditional Thanksgiving gathering. COVID fatigue and denialism are a toxic combination. A reminder that 249,000 Americans have died of COVID as of this writing.
Scott Atlas is a dangerous man who only has 64 days left to spread lethal medical disinformation from his White House perch. He will not be missed.
The last word goes to Mary Chapin Carpenter:
