The CDC could not wait to declare a health crisis over the monkeypox virus.
Yet, it says nothing about fentanyl.
It does this even though more people die daily from fentanyl than monkeypox, and Senator Marshall (R-KS) has a big problem with that.
Why do we have a monkeypox crisis declared?
The answer is easy… the virus primarily impacts gay and bisexual men, the LGBTQ+ community, so it is a bigger priority than something that impacts the entire country as a whole.
Senator Marshall touched on this, stating, "Probably two people, one or two people have died with monkeypox in the United States that I'm aware of.
"But every day, hundreds of Americans die from fentanyl poisoning.
"Why have you not declared this a public health emergency?"
He asked (CDC) Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, "Why have you not asked the administration to shut down the border where 90 percent of this fentanyl comes from?"
Here is the exchange…
Kamala Harris says our border is secure, yet there was the CDC Director saying that fentanyl is coming across the border.
It would be nice if this administration could get on the same page.
