Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Brian Williams Mocks Deborah Brix's Lavish Praise of Trump”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

That highly dubious claim was just one part of the bizarre, lavish praise showered on the president during a Friday interview by Dr. Deborah Brix, response coordinator for the White House coronavirus task force. And its stunning fealty earned the doctor a strong dose of savage mockery from MSNBC’s Brian Williams.

Williams began his Friday night show by running down Trump’s latest round of public statements about the COVID-19 pandemic, which in the just the past few days has featured him baselessly speculating about the true demand for ventilators and pushing for an Easter restart  of the economy that his own infectious diseases expert has dismissed as false hope. The MSNBC anchor then played a clip of Brix appearing in an interview on the notably Trump-friendly Christian Broadcasting Network earlier that day.

“How would you describe the job President Trump is doing behind the scenes and in front of the cameras during these daily briefings that we’re seeing?” the CBN reporter asked. “What’s been your perspective, Dr. Birx?”

“He’s been so attentive to the scientific literature and the details and the data,” Birx claimed, despite plenty of public evidence to the contrary. “And I think his — his ability to analyze and integrate data that comes out of his long history in business has really been a real benefit during these discussions about medical issues,” she added, ladling on even more adulation and stroking of Trump’s well known demand for absolute loyalty.

“That was translated from the original North Korean,” Williams’s dry wit concluded right after the clip ended, his biting quip drawing inspiration from the all-time classic zinger by sharp-witted liberal columnist Molly Ivins, who said of conservative Pat Buchanan’s infamously far right 1992 Republican National Convention speech: “It probably sounded better in the original German.”
