Why we don't trust the experts? - OR - Where would we be without experts? Why We Have the Worst “Experts,” Chapter 12,186
President Donald Trump has suggested multiple times that a coronavirus vaccine could come within months, an accelerated timeline that prominent health experts and veteran vaccine developers say is unlikely absent a miracle.
Not only were they wrong about the 12 months. There are COMPETING vaccines. So they were more than just wrong. Could be they were lying. Could be they are not the experts that they pretend to be. Could be why we don't listen to them anymore.
Funny how often Trump turns out to be right about something the “experts” dismissed as outlandish and irresponsible. Start with moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. Yeah, the violent unrest in the Middle East in the aftermath of that provocative move still hasn’t abated. What’s that? Oh, never mind.
Experts gonna expert.
