The Moral Compass of Richard Burr
a secret recording of Senator Richard Burr made three weeks ago in which the senator warned a private gathering of well-heeled constituents -- major business-owners and others -- that the Coronavirus was probably as big a threat as the 1918 flu pandemic which killed millions. He was making these comments in private at the same time that Donald Trump was still claiming the virus was going to disappear quickly.
NPR makes plain that Burr was telling harsh truths to his peeps while concealing that truth from the general public.
Remember: this is the same outstanding public servant who sent his wife to draw out as much money as possible from the bank before the public found out just how bad the 2008 crash was going to be.
