Trump coronavirus adviser condemns new lockdowns
Responding to Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s announcement of a three-week lockdown closing colleges, high schools, workplaces and in-person dining, White House coronavirus adviser Dr. Scott Atlas called on citizens to protest.
“The only way this stops is if people rise up,” Atlas wrote in a tweet Sunday night, citing information about Whitmer’s new restrictions. “You get what you accept. #FreedomMatters #StepUp.”

Whitmer responded to Atlas’ tweet Sunday night on CNN, accusing him of bullying, the Washington Post reported.
“We know that the White House likes to single us out here in Michigan, me out in particular,” she said. “I’m not going to be bullied into not following reputable scientists and medical professionals.”
Atlas defended his tweet against people who characterized it as a call to violence.
“Hey. I NEVER was talking at all about violence,” Atlas wrote. “People vote, people peacefully protest. NEVER would I endorse or incite violence. NEVER!!”
Michigan’s Democratic attorney general, Dana Nessel, called Atlas’s tweet “disappointing, irresponsible, and the reason why the United States finds itself in such desperate circumstances regarding COVID-19.”
Nessel recently threatened a journalist who published evidence of vote fraud, dispatching to him a “cease and desist” letter ordering him to erase evidence leaked by poll watchers.

Michigan Republican state Rep. Matt Maddock said Sunday that he and a number of his colleagues will work to impeach Whitmer.
“Today, myself and a growing list of Michigan Legislators have decided that @GovWhitmer has crossed the line and will be calling for #ImpeachWhitmer hearings,” Maddock tweeted. “The list of violations is long and the call is overdue.”
‘Boy, those Flat Earthers sure don’t give up’
Last month, as WND reported, Atlas reacted to Joe Biden’s claim that “no serious” doctor agrees with Atlas’ coronavirus strategy of loosening coronavirus restrictions for the healthy while protecting the vulnerable.
CBS News anchor Norah O’Donnell noted to Biden that Atlas is “advocating young people go about their business and older people sequester.”
“Nobody thinks he makes any sense,” Biden responded in the Oct. 25 “60 Minutes” interview. “Nobody. No serious doc around the world.”
