Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) says that the American people should have no trust in the Center for Disease Control after their handling of Ebola in Dallas.
Instead of coming out and handling the outbreak, the CDC is laying blame on the nurses for a “breach in protocol”–without naming what protocols were broken.
“Clearly there were protocols breached, but it wasn’t by the nurses,” Gohmert said on WBPA radio. “It was by the CDC collectively having their heads up where the sun doesn’t shine.”
“It is outrageous that we have a CDC, and the best they can do is blame people that get the disease for breaching non-existent protocols,” he continued.
“How can we have faith in a Centers for Disease Control that immediately blames people with the disease without even knowing how they got it?” he asked. “I mean, you can’t have faith in a group like that.”
Gohmert would later go on to blame Obama for his lax engagement with the situation; it was he who said that the chances of Ebola making it to the U.S. was very, very low.
“I think that in his own mind he’s not lying,” Gohmert said of Obama and his promise to the U.S. that Ebola wouldn’t make it to the country. “He really does believe that if he says something, that it must be true, even though there were no protocols in place.”
Gohmert criticized the CDC for their tactics after the first confirmed case of Ebola. Instead of getting ahead of the disease, they started pointing fingers.
“Their [CDC] idea is, let’s immediately do damage control, let’s get our first response team out there at the press conference blaming the nurse, blaming others so that we can say it’s not our fault.”
