I think it's more accurate to say that a Trump appointee who has neither interest nor understanding of the function of the CDC is doing the bidding of one or more special interests in order to secure a position post-Trump.

That the CDC is positively gobsmacked by this charge demonstrates "continuity of government" or "the deep state" depending on how conspiratorially-minded you are. Epidemiology has little room for ideology.

Well, shit. You're right. I'm a fool for missing the point. I think my argument still stands, but I've accidentally hit something else while missing the intended target.
