Publisher's Summary

What really happened behind the scenes at the Trump White House during the COVID pandemic?

When Dr. Scott W. Atlas was tapped by Donald Trump to join his COVID Task Force, he was immediately thrust into a maelstrom of scientific disputes, policy debates, raging egos, politically motivated lies, and cynical media manipulation. Numerous myths and distortions surround the Trump Administration’s handling of the crisis, and many pressing questions remain unanswered. Did the Trump team really bungle the response to the pandemic? Were the right decisions made about travel restrictions, lockdowns, and mask mandates? Are Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx competent medical experts or timeserving bureaucrats? Did half a million people really die unnecessarily because of Trump’s incompetence?

So far no trusted figure has emerged who can tell the story straight - until now. In this unfiltered insider account, Dr. Scott Atlas brings us directly into the White House, describes the key players in the crisis, and assigns credit and blame where it is deserved.

The book includes shocking evaluations of the Task Force members’ limited knowledge and grasp of the science of COVID and details heated discussions with Task Force members, including all of the most controversial episodes that dominated headlines for weeks. Dr. Atlas tells the truth about the science and documents the media’s relentless campaign to suffocate it, which included canceled interviews, journalists’ off-camera hostility in White House briefings, and intentional distortion of facts. He also provides an inside account of the delays and timelines involving vaccines and other treatments, evaluates the impact of the lockdowns on American public health, and indicts the relentless war on truth waged by Big Business and Big Tech.

No other book contains these revelations. Millions of people who trust Dr. Atlas will want to listen to this dramatic account of what really went on behind the scenes in the White House during the greatest public health crisis of the 21st century. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Fantastic FACTUAL Exposé!!

Irrefutable truth from one who is completely qualified in every way. No matter what side you are on, this is a MUST READ!

Dr. Atlas exposes in boldness and truth, with scientific and professional integrity, the facts that have been covered up by our own government and the ‘scientific community’.

Vitally important book!

I cannot give A Plague upon Our House a high enough recommendation. It certainly is not an enjoyable listen but it is a critically important listen. I wish I could award A Plague upon Our House more than 5 stars!

Love it- hate it!

My blood boils as I listen to the content Dr Atlas provided here. Makes me sick.
The MSM and “leaders” who suppressed and are suppressing the truth is simply disgusting.
Until some of these ppl are brought to justice fur their crimes against the American people and of the works nothing will change.
The left and their hatred of truth and right will sadly continue until there are serious repercussions.
Love it because he speaks the truth without regard for influence or position.
Hate it because I live in this America and it’s not the America that I grew up in.

Wow

Eye opening book. Dr. Atlas puts forth a compelling account of what went on at the coronavirus task force. What was quite clear was that those who we trusted as scientists did not act at all like scientists. Moreover their egos were such that They disallowed any rational dissent.

When you listen to this account you can only wonder what if we had real doctors like Dr. Atlas advising the president as opposed to maniacal bureaucratic ego maniacs that so badly misled him. The book does not excuse the president either. As he says on multiple occasions the man who so famously said you’re fired failed at firing incompetent people at the most critical time.

Alas we live under the threat of lockdowns and massive economic decay. Hopefully books like this will light the fires of ordinary Americans.

Have the courage to hear the other side.

In a world where speech is often censored it is important to hear divergent views in their own words. This book gives an evidence based alternative view on how we should be handling the Covid pandemic. Open your mind to its arguement. It could actually save lives. The book also presents a unique glimpse into Wahington's ego driven politics.

An excellent book by a true Covid hero

Sad this guy was censored by the liberal media. Had our so called experts listened to him, majority of Americans would be free. Identity politics is truly disgusting, and all of us Americans fell victim to it by our elected officials, mainly the democrats. Keep up the good work Dr Atlas and keep exposing the shameful people who didn’t let a pandemic go to waste in the name of power grab.

The truth about treating a pandemic.

Scott Atlas, MD, is the most qualified person to speak about Covid 19, the treatment, and the successful and unsuccessful outcomes. His scientific critical research and unrelenting search for facts unearth so many unanswered questions. I am much relieved after listening to his book.

shocking and infuriating!!

I hope the lessons learned in this book will not ever be repeated. Yet I fear Washington cannot change. And as usual the masses suffer when the leadership turns a blind eye Although I do not blame trump for this I blame the surrounding advisers for not telling him the truth and worrying more about getting re elected than doing what was right for the American people.

Finally answers to what was going on with this insanity

Who would have ever thought we’d be in this position. I made an intentional effort to listen to this throughout a day and a half immersing myself in the craziness of this pandemic from this doctors viewpoint and his involvement at the White House. So much could have been avoided and done differently. He tried for sure. Trump tried. For anyone with a brain that cannot help but question “why” I’d recommend this audiobook. It will help you understand the behind the scenes happenings without the filter of social media making decisions for us. Good job doc. Now if you can only get ivermectin prescriptions for us as an option!
