He’s on “medical leave”

I don’t know how I managed to miss this yesterday – Caputo is taking a two month “leave of absence”…i.e. he’s been told to stfu and take a break until after the election. Alexander is out altogether.

The video is hilarious given the knowledge that he’s been told to fuck right off. If I’d watched it not knowing that it wouldn’t have been funny at all.

Just to refresh our memories (or maybe just mine – I find Caputo and Alexander very forgettable somehow), NPR on Caputo two days ago, so the day before he “went on leave”:

According to a report in Politico last week, Caputo and other officials tried to block or amend CDC reports, including the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports, to make them appear more favorable to President Trump.

Caputo is a longtime political operative who worked on Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He also recently published a book titled The Ukraine Hoax: How Decades of Corruption in the Former Soviet Republic Led to Trump’s Phony Impeachment.

A political operative. Not the right kind of job experience for a public health spokes.

Anyway he’s off on his hols and with any luck he won’t be back because Trump will be too busy packing his bags.
