Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin suggests Congress defund Walter Reed following Trump’s release

News & Politics

Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin called on Congress to consider defunding Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Monday, lambasting the hospital’s doctors for agreeing to release President Donald Trump back to the White House following treatment for COVID-19.

What are the details?

Fox News reported that Rubin went on a Twitter tirade after the president announced he would be heading home after roughly three days at the facility. The president tweeted, “I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!”

Rubin tweeted in response, “If he falls ill and relapses or infects anyone else his doctors will be responsible.”

“Is there no one at Walter Reed with the nerve to speak out publicly to warn others and express they objected to this dangerous course of conduct?” she continued, adding, “After election there’s going to need to be a thorough review and [American Medical Association] will need to consider discipline if appropriate.”

The columnist — who has been widely mocked for years for purporting to be a “conservative blogger” before scrapping it from her bio and calling herself a “Never Trump, pro-democracy opinion writer” — also raged against Vice President Mike Pence and other Republicans before she attacked Walter Reed doctors further.

“Any MD who publicly endorses this insanity needs to lose his/her license. Period,” she wrote, before taunting, “Oh, Walter Reed MD’s, is your malpractice insurance paid up?” She went on to call them “remarkable cowards.”

But Rubin received the most attention from her tweet saying, “Congress might want to defund Walter Reed. It is a public health hazard.”

The Post writer’s suggestion drew widespread scorn on the social media platform. For example, Fox Nation host Johnny (Joey) Jones, a Marine who lost both his legs while serving the in Afghanistan, replied, “As a man who’s only alive today because of relentless work of the men and women saving lives there, to hell with your blind hate. Shock jock political commentary is for unimaginative agenda driven hacks. You’re not better than that, but we can demand you fix yourself or go away.”

Yet, Rubin was not alone in hating on Walter Reed for releasing Trump. New York Times opinion columnist Maureen Dowd tweeted the same day, “When Trump walked through the doors, Walter Reed had a stellar reputation. As he walks out 72 hours later, its reputation is in tatters. There’s nothing Trump can’t ruin.”

  1. Sounds like just the sort of person I would like to see voting on employing medical expertts, elderly care, Medicare cost control and how to run the world.

  2. She’s one of those that think Joe Biden’s acctualy going to get elected to represent this country. She needs her computer and any other writing devices taken away from her. She’s lost it!!

    1. So you oppose freedom of speech and freedom of the press? Isn’t that what your comment “She needs her computer and any other writing devices taken away from her.” means? IF you got your wish, who and by what means do you think YOU should retain your right to free speech and she shouldn’t? Can’t you people understand that for YOU to have the rights to post YOUR opinions, SHE has the same right?

      1. 1. The first amendment guarantees her right to state her opinion. Do you really think her tweets “If he falls ill and relapses or infects anyone else his doctors will be responsible.” and “Is there no one at Walter Reed with the nerve to speak out publicly to warn others and express they objected to this dangerous course of conduct?” deserve YOUR response? What if he does relapse? What if he does infect others?
        2. The first amendment guarantees your right to state your opinion. Beyond your venemous list of intentionally derogatory words regarding her opinion, we should assume you don’t care whether T relapses or infects others?

  3. She is a typical hater. No matter what our President does, it’s wrong in her eyes. Thank God for President Trump. If you will look at the stats, he is safer at home, which is the White House. These liberal demoncrats are always looking for a reason to cause more expense to the taxpayers. He is smart enough to not live by the fear the Democrats are spreading. #FireJenniferRubin #StopTheFear

  4. Are there ANY sane, responsible people left in the democrat party today ?? This woman falls into the category of those who need to be removed from society for the sake of that society.

    1. So “This woman falls into the category of those who need to be removed from society for the sake of that society.” means you support criminalization of free speech (and presumably free thought) which supposedly could only happen in the USA by eliminating the US Constitution? Where would you like the AMERICAN GULAG for the incarceration of political opponents (or did you mean a more permanent form of removal from society) to be located?

  5. When your skills at journalism are so down the tube your only course of action to be noticed is to be a top stupid hate writer because hate in this day and time gets noticed. Otherwise no one would notice you.

  6. Rubin does not know Trumps personal medical history, she is not a Dr. She is simply hate filled because it is Trump and anything he does will be defiled by her. Shame on her for being so childish, and trying to cause trouble!
