The AANS (American Association of Neurological Surgeons) is so conservative they proudly introduced fellow neurosurgeon Ben Carson as he declared his candidacy for president in 2016. We have had Presidents Bush and Bush Jr as keynote speakers. So, it is with great surprise that the NEJM (New England Journal of Medicine) denounced Trump and all but endorsed Joe Biden for president.
“In an editorial signed by 34 editors who are United States citizens (one editor is not) and published on Wednesday, the journal said the Trump administration had responded so poorly to the coronavirus pandemic that they “have taken a crisis and turned it into a tragedy.”” – NYT
You have to realize that medicine is a conservative body on the whole. This is seismic in its condemnation of Trump and his poor judgment that has cost so many lives.
