Politico columnist Jack Schafer, a columnist for Politico, thought during the coronavirus White House briefing it would be a good idea to take shots at the outfits of the coronavirus team members.
Jack Schafer sniped at the outfits of Surgeon General Jerome Adams, Health Department Assistant Secretary Brett Giroir. and then Dr. Deborah Birx.
“Those uniforms make Jerome Adams and Brett Giroir look like members of the Heaven’s Gate cult,” Schafer wrote.
Shafer later added ““Deborah Birx’s outfit makes her look like the cult leader.” in a subsequent tweet.
His obnoxious sniping at a time of seriousness got him scolded in replies.
