Florida Surgeon General Ladapo Responds To Hatchet-Job Attempt By MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow

Those who watch lefty MSNBC hostess Rachel Maddow know that she’s smart, passionate, and often possesses an arm’s length relationship with facts.

For example, she swallowed the Trump-Russia collusion hoax hook, line, and sinker. And the liberals at the “fact-checking” site PolitiFact, who rarely disagree with those of their own political ilk, have given Maddow a lifetime score of 17 percent true statements, and 27 percent either false or “pants on fire” lies.

Maddow’s latest attack came last week on new Florida state Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo – who has not been afraid to publicly criticize the excessive reliance, especially in blue areas, on the holy trinity of COVID-19: mandated masking, suffocating lockdowns, and forced vaccines.

Maddow, as she did so often with former President Donald Trump and those fictitious Putin henchmen at the Kremlin, suggested there was something nefarious about the medical license for Dr. Ladapo, who came to Florida from UCLA, getting approved in record time.

She painted a picture of the Harvard-trained Ladapo that included shadowy level-pullers working on his behalf, heroic stifled whistleblowers pointing out his lack of credentials, and goofy associates from a group of doctors who, Maddow added, prescribe “fake COVID cures like ivermectin.”

That would be the ivermectin responsible for a Nobel Prize and, in addition to the demographics of the continent, led “to a significant reduction in mortality” from COVID-19 in sub-Saharan Africa.

But the worst offense was yet to come.

Maddow, who again completely missed the boat, and misled her viewers, on the alleged Trump-Russia conspiracy, claimed Ladapo “misled the public about his supposed experience treating COVID patients” at the California hospital where he worked prior to coming to Florida.

“It has since emerged thanks to our reporting that it appears that he may have misrepresented his own clinical experience as somebody who was treating COVID patients. But nevertheless, Governor Ron DeSantis apparently keeping him on as surgeon general, even as hundreds of Florida doctors write to the state legislature saying please can we have more scrutiny of this guy,” Maddow said.

“Questions really do keep piling up around here,” she intoned.

Yet again, as occurred so often in the Trump era, Maddow refused to identify the people who told her crew that Ladapo was overstating his work on COVID. And Dr. Ladapo responded in an interview with Breitbart News.

Breitbart noted that his work is more as a researcher, but that he still saw patients regularly, including those afflicted by COVID.

UCLA established a special COVID ward, which dissolved at the beginning of the year. Ladapo had been seeing patients with COVID before the unit was created, Breitbart noted, and that he continued to see them after it was disbanded because those patients were intermingled with patients who needed care for other illnesses.

Breitbart also interviewed a doctor who treated virus patients and who knew of Ladapo’s work.

“There are a number of facilities and the system is spread across the Los Angeles Metropolitan area,” he told Breitbart. “The idea that they [MSNBC] managed to connect with a few random doctors who weren’t familiar with him indicates to me that they just talked to the wrong people, because it’s a huge system.”

“I have no doubt whatsoever that he has a substantial familiarity with the clinical needs of these patients, personal experience with it, and it doesn’t surprise me at all that a few random people that were contacted were not personally familiar with his work,” the doctor added.

“I think there’s sort of an ingrained hostility to anybody who sort of steps out of line. So somebody like him who’s willing to put himself out there and say things that are a little unorthodox really rubs the institutional people the wrong way. I think that’s part of it too.”

In his own interview, Ladapo told Breitbart, “I’ve had many people confide in me privately that they support the messages and the work I’ve done and they really appreciate it and they said they — I’ve had people tell me they don’t feel comfortable being outspoken because they don’t want the negative attention or they’re worried about their job, or they have other concerns.”

“Some people have stepped up anyway, which I’m always happy to see,” he continued. “But there’s this tremendous pressure right now for people to basically fall in line.”
