Scientist: We dismissed lab-leak theory – because Trump liked it

We have covered this before. We billed it as the most important thing you will read all year. It was tough-going at times as virology is complex, but the writer did their best to make it intelligible to mortals. It is the smoking gun for Wuhan as the originating laboratory for the pandemic. It proves Trump was right. It holds China directly culpable.

Now comes more evidence to back-up what we felt all through the pandemic. Because of no greater reason than “Orange Man Bad” said something, the MSM and the Chardonnay Socialists rushed to denounce it.

One of the 18 scientists who recently published a letter acknowledging the plausibility of the coronavirus lab-leak theory said she and her colleagues didn’t speak out sooner because President Trump promoted that possibility for the origin of the pandemic. (WND has a great piece here)

“At the time, it was scarier to be associated with Trump and to become a tool for racists, so people didn’t want to publicly call for an investigation into lab origins,”said Alina Chan in an interview with NBC News.

Now the race is on to blame everyone else. Dr. Death is trying to cover his ass again. He, just like Professor Neil Ferguson in the UK has been wrong about everything. And in Fauxci’s case, beholden to China. But gradually, just like the election results, just like climate warming, the shibboleths of the Left are dissolving. It is looking more and more likely that China lies at the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic which stole 18 months of our lives and so many friends.
