MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS REBUKES TWEET CRITICIZING PREZ TRUMP CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE PENNED BY KANSAS CITY HEALTH DIRECTOR DR. REX ARCHER!!!
Downplayed by mainstream cowtown media, local conservatives have bristled over several comments from Kansas City Health Department Director Rex Archer.
In a worthwhile interview, right-wing talker Pete Mundo called out the KCMO doc to the Mayor this way . . .
"Mayor, last week during the press conference you had at City Hall. Your health director Rex Archer said, 'if we do this well - We could have 3 to 4 shut downs in the next 24 months. We had the Dr. on Friday to ask him about that and didn't really get a clear answer."
And then the conversation quickly turned to this controversial tweet. . .
@RexArcherMD Recently: "Even with the President ignoring his top public health and medical doctor appointees, and trying to get them to lie to the American people, the overwhelming majority support the social distancing measures."
Conservative Talker Pete Mundo Asks: "Is that appropriate?"
Mayor Lucas answered: "I don't think so. I will address that with him again. I think those type of comments are unhelpful. I've said it before . . . If you wonder why I usually kick off our many press conferences. That is one of the many reasons . . . "

Here's what we know for sure after the interview revelation buried within this conversation . . .
BEHIND THE SCENES TEAM Q HAVE GROWN INCREASINGLY FRUSTRATED WITH TACTICS & DR. ARCHER'S COMMENTS AND NOW ARE ON THE RECORD WITH THEIR CRITICISM!!!
Even better, and EXCLUSIVELY ON TKC, there's a very real debate at 12th & Oak right now about scaling back the KCMO lockdown. Insiders advise the mayor that Dr. Archer and his progressive stance might make a convenient scapegoat for a sooner reopen as local biz community pressure intensifies.
