Watch: Biden COVID Task Force Member Thrown Under The Bus After Accidentally Telling The Truth
Dr. Michael Osterholm joined Biden’s COVID task force last fall however, the White House has now washed their hands of him after he accidentally told the truth.
During an appearance on CNN, Osterholm said, “We need to talk about better masking. We need to talk about N-95 respirators, which would do a lot for both people who are not yet vaccinated or not previously infected.”

During a press briefing, Press Secretary Jen Psaki lied when asked about Osterholm’s comments.
“Osterholm is not an adviser to the president,” she said. “We are going to continue to rely on the advice of medical experts in the federal government.”

Psaki once again is failing to tell the truth, CNBC (and other outlets) reported on November 20th that Osterholm would join Biden’s COVID-19 advisory board.
Osterholm has been a problem for the Biden administration because he has a habit of accidentally telling the truth or changing his opinion when it benefits him.
As the initial lockdowns were starting Osterholm did an interview on the Joe Rogan podcast. Below is a clip of Osterholm not only saying masks are useless in stopping the coronavirus but cites scientific studies as to why. Osterholm went on the record and said, “trying to stop coronaviruses is like trying to stop the wind.” His biggest concern was people overweight aged 55 over older.
He said best case scenario is herd immunity, he told Rogan best-case scenario it’s going to stay around for months and we need to examine how long are we willing to impose restrictions. Osterholm told Rogan, “eventually enough people will get infected” and that would “stops it[coronavirus] by itself.” He then described the science behind herd immunity, he did mention that there will be a price to pay to get there.
It’s funny how a person’s position changes when they get hired for a political position isn’t it?
