Sean Conley managed to kill THREE birds with one stone
Tuesday at 6:41 pm
Killing two birds with one stone is a common expression, but you rarely – if ever – hear about the kind of masterful stroke that can kill THREE birds with just one stone.
Killing two birds with one stone is the result of an action that accomplishes two different things at the same time or solves two problems with one single action.
On a personal level, it’s usually achieved when I’m able to run an errand for myself while executing the honey do list.
In his new book, Trust, Pete Buttigieg outlines the erosion of trust, both here in America and around the world. The trust we have lost here is both in our institutions and in each other.
On the world stage, nations that once relied on the leadership and support of the United States no longer feel that we are a reliable partner in any sense of the word.
Since 2017, all we have done internationally is withdraw from agreements and treaties and engage in no-win trade wars.
Sean Conley is a Doctor of Osteopathy (whatever that means) who was recruited onto the President’s medical team by Ronny Jackson, Trump’s previous personal physician.
Jackson, as you may remember was kicked out of the White House in 2018 for passing out happy pills on Air Force One and is now running to represent Texas’s 13th congressional district in the U.S. House.
Intentionally or not, Conley took on the mantle of Destroyer of Trust. In one fell swoop, Conley chipped away at the credibility of doctors, the military and our government.
Conley is a doctor (of sorts), a Navy officer and, as Physician to the President, part of the administration. He is also the guy who prescribed hydroxychloroquine for Donald Trump and I will let that information stand on its own.
Conley lead a phalanx of masked doctors to a podium in front of Walter Reed Hospital on Saturday for reasons that became immediately unclear. He seemed to be trying out for Kayleigh McEnany’s job.
Conley was both evasive and dishonest and we’ll leave it at that. I’ve burdened you enough this week.
I have to say, though, that it was decidedly unscientific for Conley to say that he lied to steer the course of illness. It’s unlikely that even the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine has a course in verbally steering illness.
In just a few press briefings, Conley chipped away at the medical community, the military and our ever crumbling government institutions.
It’s a good thing Trump decided to helicopter back home Monday. Who knows how much damage Conley could have done with a couple more pressers?
