People lined up Friday at a pop-up vaccination clinic in D.C. for the monkeypox vaccine, hoping to mitigate the infection risk. Dr. Anthony Fauci says people should be aware of the virus but not panic.

The federal government declared monkeypox a public health emergency Thursday to bolster the response to the outbreak that has infected more than 7,100 Americans.

The announcement will free up money and other resources to fight the virus, which may cause fever, body aches, chills, fatigue and pimple-like bumps on many parts of the body, The Associated Press reported.

This “all hands on deck” approach, Fauci said, will synergize all the different elements in responding to this “significant and serious outbreak.”

Fauci said he believes monkeypox can be controlled, and there are four reasons for that. First, testing has been increased from 6,000 per week to 80,000 per week due to the involvement of at least five commercial firms.

And what were originally 136,000 doses of the Jynneos vaccine deployed have been increased within a few days to over 600,000, with the goal of 1.1 million doses. Fauci said it’s still not as much as what’s wanted or needed, but the process is accelerating.

Also, the process for health care providers to get TPOXX, an early treatment for people with monkeypox, has been accelerated, making it easy for a physician to quickly get the drug without going through many hoops, Fauci said.

Lastly, Fauci said there’d been a strong outreach to the community.

‘Protect myself as best as I can’

Hazel Johnson, a D.C. resident, was one of the people who came to the pop-up vaccine clinic on Georgia Avenue NW. She found out about the clinic close to her home and came to get one of the 300 vaccines the District offers at each vaccination location on Fridays.

Johnson said she is not concerned about monkeypox because she does not know anybody who’s gotten monkeypox in the D.C. region.

“But I’m going to protect myself as best as I can so that I don’t have to worry about it. I have a lot of travel coming up. So, I want to make sure I’m covered on all the bases,” Johnson said.

Last month, D.C. reported the largest outbreak of monkeypox per capita in the nation. Currently, D.C. has 280 cases, according to the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention count.

Johnson and several residents told WTOP’s DMV Download podcast that the District’s response to the monkeypox outbreak has been pretty good.

D.C. resident George works in nightlife and said he has seen the information about monkeypox and vaccines, and he feels positive about how D.C. has handled it, particularly the availability of vaccines.

“It’s not, like, a big line like it was with COVID. It’s nice, there’s different locations. So far, I approve,” George said, adding that the pop-up clinics would be better and he hopes more days will become available.

Another person who declined to be identified said he tried to sign up online, but the available days were limited, and going to the pop-up clinic seemed like the “only way I can get the vaccine.”

Eddie, another person in line Friday, said the District has made a good effort to open up the walk-in vaccine clinic. He is concerned to a certain extent about the outbreak, and that’s why he’s getting vaccinated.

‘You never blow off an emerging infection’

George said there’s been a lot of stigma on sex workers and people who work in nightlife when it comes to monkeypox. Fauci said pointing fingers is the “worst thing you can do.”

Monkeypox can spread from person to person through direct contact with an infectious rash, scabs or body fluids. It also can be spread by respiratory secretions during prolonged, face-to-face contact or during intimate physical contact, such as kissing, cuddling or sex, the CDC said.

Last month, a child visiting D.C. was diagnosed with monkeypox. Another child in California also contracted it.

Fauci said five children have been secondarily infected. “Does that mean that every parent in the country should be terrified? No. Pay attention to it, but don’t panic about it,” he said.

“You never blow off any emerging infection when you don’t know yet where it’s going. So you pay attention to it, you follow it, and you respond to it in an appropriate manner.”

Gen. Milley Annihilated Trump in a Resignation Letter He Drafted But Never Sent: You Are Doing Great and Irreparable Harm to My Country

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, criticized former President Donald Trump in a never-sent draft resignation letter, according to an excerpt from Susan Glasser and Peter Baker’s forthcoming book The Divider.

The letter was reportedly drafted on June 8th, a week after the events of Lafayette Square, where Black Lives Matter protestors were violently cleared from the area for Trump to get his infamous photo opportunity, posing outside the damaged St. John’s Church across from the White House, bible in hand.

Milley’s resignation letter displays a rift between Trump and the nation’s military leadership toward the end of his term in office.

“I regret to inform you that I intend to resign as your Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,” the letter read, “Thank you for the honor of appointing me as a senior ranking officer.”

The letter continued, with Milley claiming that he could no longer justify the actions of Trump:

The events of the last couple weeks have caused me to do deep soul-searching, and I can no longer faithfully support and execute your orders as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. It is my belief that you were doing great and irreparable harm to my country. I believe that you have made a concerted effort over time to politicize the United States military. I thought that I could change that. I’ve come to the realization that I cannot, and I need to step aside and let someone else try to do that.

Second, you are using the military to create fear in the minds of the people—and we are trying to protect the American people. I cannot stand idly by and participate in that attack, verbally or otherwise, on the American people. The American people trust their military and they trust us to protect them against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and our military will do just that. We will not turn our back on the American people.

Third, I swore an oath to the Constitution of the United States and embodied within that Constitution is the idea that says that all men and women are created equal. All men and women are created equal, no matter who you are, whether you are white or Black, Asian, Indian, no matter the color of your skin, no matter if you’re gay, straight or something in between. It doesn’t matter if you’re Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, Jew, or choose not to believe. None of that matters. It doesn’t matter what country you came from, what your last name is—what matters is we’re Americans. We’re all Americans. That under these colors of red, white, and blue—the colors that my parents fought for in World War II—means something around the world. It’s obvious to me that you don’t think of those colors the same way I do. It’s obvious to me that you don’t hold those values dear and the cause that I serve.

And lastly it is my deeply held belief that you’re ruining the international order, and causing significant damage to our country overseas, that was fought for so hard by the Greatest Generation that they instituted in 1945. Between 1914 and 1945, 150 million people were slaughtered in the conduct of war. They were slaughtered because of tyrannies and dictatorships. That generation, like every generation, has fought against that, has fought against fascism, has fought against Nazism, has fought against extremism. It’s now obvious to me that you don’t understand that world order. You don’t understand what the war was all about. In fact, you subscribe to many of the principles that we fought against. And I cannot be a party to that. It is with deep regret that I hereby submit my letter of resignation.

The article in the New Yorker, additionally detailed how the former president grew increasingly irritated by his national security officials, who he believed were not displaying the appropriate level of loyalty.

In July of 2021, Trump pushed back on reports that Milley was deeply concerned that Trump would start a coup to remain in office after losing to President Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election. The former president argued that he wouldn’t have trusted Milley to help him perform a coup, even though he claims that was not his intent.
