Subject of Pro-Gun Control BuzzFeed Article Deletes Entire Twitter Account Without Explanation

Published

on

A surgical fellow whose pro-gun control Tweet was featured in a recently-published BuzzFeed article has deleted his entire Twitter account without explanation.

“Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane,” the National Rifle Association Tweeted that after last week’s deadly shooting in Thousand Oaks, California. The NRA Tweet was in response to several doctors sharing photos of themselves working on alleged gunshot victims.

The BuzzFeed piece, called “Doctors Are Sharing Gruesome Photos Of What It’s Like To Treat Gun Violence Victims,” was celebratory in nature. It was a smug “gotcha”style hit on the NRA.

One of the doctors whose Tweets went viral, and who was subsequently profiled by BuzzFeed was Robert Lyons, a thoracic and cardiac surgeon and fellow of UCLA’s thoracic surgery program.

“16 y/o GSW to the Aorta. @NRA his mother is in the waiting room,” Lyons said on Twitter, attaching the following photo:

“Should you tell her he didnt make it? Didnt think so. #stayinmylane #ThisISMyLane,” the Tweet continued.

But shortly after the piece was published, Lyons deleted his entire account:

“Robert Lyons, a cardiothoracic surgery fellow at the University of California, Los Angeles, told BuzzFeed News that ‘the raw emotion of that moment stays with every physician for the rest of their life,’ according to the article.

Big League Politics reached out to Remy Smidt, author of the piece to ask why Lyons would take such abrupt action. She did not respond to the comment request.

Big League Politics spoke with Lorraine Hartman, Program Coordinator for UCLA’s Division of Cardiac Surgery and Division of Thoracic Surgery.

When asked if their residents – including Lyons – handle gunshot wounds, she became skittish and declined to answer. There are HIPPA laws that potentially prevent disclosure of such information. When asked if she was barred from answering for legal reasons, she said she would simply rather not comment, and directed BLP to UCLA’s undergraduate legal assistance office for students, who said they could not help, and did not know who could answer the question.

Why would a man, who days ago was proudly chewing out the NRA delete his account in such short order? That question remains a mystery.

WATCH: Trump ROASTS Acosta: “Go Ahead Jim, Try Another One”

The President shut down Acosta’s inane question.

Published

on

President Donald Trump shut down CNN showman Jim Acosta’s attempts to insinuate strange conspiracies at Friday’s Presidential press briefing on the response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic. Acosta demanded that the President reveal the exact location of Dr. Anthony Fauci, apparently believing that the federal medical advisor had been shut out of the coronavirus response.

President Trump had been discussing attempts to marshal medical facemasks from 3M, combating attempts by the nominally American company to export the needed equipment to foreign countries for profit. Acosta tried to divert from the relevant topic at hand with irrelevant questions about the participants of the press briefing.

Where is Doctor Fauci?

Every time he’s not here… Sometimes I’ll ask him to come because that’s the first question that you and a couple of others from the fake news establishment ask… We’re doing great together.

Of course the President isn’t required to account for the whereabouts of Dr. Fauci at all times. Key federal personnel overseeing the pandemic response have a wide range of responsibilities that prevent them from being present at every single daily press briefing.

Trump went on to line up Acosta for what likely would’ve been another political and irrelevant question, savagely telling the CNN operative to “Go ahead Jim, try another one.

As Jim Acosta tries repeatedly to derail attempts to provide the American public with vital information about the federal coronavirus response, it’s probably worth considering temporarily (or permanently) suspending his press credentials in order to allow the near-daily briefings to focus upon policy substance.

Acosta has been suspended from the White House press pool before, following disruptive attempts to derail substantial briefings with political nonsense.
