Kevin Stitt finally releases White House Coronavirus reports he’s been hiding…

Late last week, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt – a proud proponent of government transparency – was caught hiding official White House Coronavirus Taskforce reports from municipalities, health officials, and just about everyone else in the state.

The reports included recommendations that Oklahoma shut down bars, close gyms, mandate masks and lots of other things that will never happen in Oklahoma.

Now, like any honest person caught withholding public health data and guidelines from the people they’re supposed to govern, Kevin Stitt released the document after it was leaked online.


Following complaints from local Oklahoma officials who say they have been kept out of the loop, Gov. Kevin Stitt said his administration will make public coronavirus reports the state receives from the White House.

Stitt has not been releasing the reports from the White House Coronavirus Task Force, nor implementing many of the public health recommendations in those reports.

Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum, a Republican, said the city had not received copies of reports that have been critical of Oklahoma’s handling of the pandemic. U.S. Rep. Kendra Horn, D-Oklahoma City, on Friday accused Stitt of hiding the task force’s recommendations.

The latest report, first published by the Center for Public Integrity, shows Oklahoma is one of nine states in the “red zone” for coronavirus infections because of more than 100 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people.

How much do you want to bet that Kevin Stitt thought Oklahoma being in the Coronavirus Red Zone was a good thing?

“Wow. We’re in the red zone! Imagine that! Now let’s punch it in there and score a touchdown!”

“Actually, that’s a different red zone, sir, this one is –”

“Down… set… hut one… “

Seriously, he probably thought releasing the reports would give away our state’s Mike Stoops-caliber gameplan to stop the Coronavirus and didn’t want to risk it.

Anyway, there’s been a lot of online outrage about Stitt hiding the reports. I understand why, but at this point, does it even matter? Do we really need a White House report to know that the Coronavirus is going strong in Oklahoma, and that we should be implementing public health measures that will never be implemented? In this state, it’s basically every person on their own. We don’t need a report to tell us that.

  1. There is only one word for this crap=BULLSTITT!!!

  2. Only nine states in the red zone! Another stunning top-ten achievement for Gov. Stitt!

  3. STITT: Now, I got this-here re-port from our Lord and Master, President Trump. It talks about that alleged Co-rona Virus people think exists, and supposubly sick-ifies people!

    STITT ASSISTANT: Yes, Governor…?

    STITT: The Mayor of Tulsa, PT Barnum, cain’t see this. It’s big trouble. Don’t be release-ifyin’ it to him…

    ASSISTANT: GT Bynum, sir.

    STITT: Huh?

    ASSISTANT: The mayor of Tulsa is GT Bynum, not PT Barnum. Barnum is the one who said, “a sucker is born every minute” and he was the head of a big circus—

    STITT: Hey, just like His Majesty, King Trump! YEEEEEEEEEE-HAW! Uh, but seriously: lemme ax you—what is a “task force” and what the gol-durned fuck is a “red zone?” Is that like soccer, when the referee shows either a yellow card or a red card, and the player has to guess what color it is?

    ASSISTANT: [heavy sigh of resignation, but no ACTUAL resignation. From his job, I mean.]

    1. Priceless.

  4. A wealthy, sole owner of a business can get away with hiding “inconvenient” information. When he gets into politics in an office like governor, he cannot. It’s hard to un-learn a lifetime of being a control freak in total control.

    There are good reasons why America’s founders gave us freedom of the press. Sadly, too many for-profit news organizations chase sensationalism with the mantra: “If it bleeds, it leads.” I won’t even get into what Sinclair and Fox News do.

    Not-for-profit journalism like CPI, The Frontier, and NonDoc aren’t traitors or “enemies of the people.” Far from it. They help keep us safe from our own poor choices in leaders, and they deserve our moral and financial support.

    1. My vote “thumb up” or “thumb down” still doesn’t count on this site. Graychin, I voted thumb up for your post. Don’t know why the site won’t count it.

  5. Perfect example of an elitist who only follows the rules they create or want to follow. Also example of someone who because he is rich-has a quasi financially successful business, therefore he must be smarter/better at everything. A “do as I say, not as I do”, kind of guy. And we thought he couldn’t be as bad as Mattress Mary……………….geeze the hits just keep on comin!

  6. Stitler

  7. Did Russia interfere in our election as well. Is Stitt Guccifer 2.0? Doubtful since he doesn’t appear to be to bright, but seriously, how did he get elected? Where did he come from? He wasn’t even involved in politics other than starting the Okies for Trump group. He hadn’t voted in over a decade and suddenly he’s our state idiot.

    1. He won because:
      He was a Republican,
      He was a Trump clone,
      The other Repub Canidates didn’t take him serious until it was too late,
      He wasn’t Mary Fallin.

  8. I was at the vets office this morning. Masks required, they meet you at your car and take your furbaby in and examine them. There was a huge lincoln parked outside, an elderly couple got out to meet the vet tech over 70 masks down under their noses. No wonder this stuff is spreading like wildfire.

    1. Oklahomans can now call COVID the Stttttttt Virus instead of donald’s China Virus.
      I wonder if stttttttttttt takes his kids to the Doctor or does he just call donald?
      Who needs science anyway?
      Way overrated.

  9. Stttttt the businessman should have been able to appreciate the fact that you can’t make a smart decision be it COVID or business if you are dealing with a liar.
    Wonder how sttttttttttt would do if his entire administration lied to him every chance they got and his decisions were based on those lies? I guess it’s already that way cause sttttt is constantly looking for a better angle from which to blow donald from and donald hasn’t told the truth in 4 years.

  10. If you cannot release a report from a compromised and servile CDC then God knows where the actual truth lies.

  11. I want to know why HE NEVER SHUTDOWN OUTDOOR GATHERINGS like lakes, Events, Splash Pads, Amusement parks etc…

  12. My mortgage is with Stitt’s mortgage company, Gateway. They are shady af… their last stunt was to not send my insurance premium payment to my insurance carrier. This is already paid by me through my escrow, all they have do to is mail the check. They didn’t send the check, and then tried to purchase insurance in my name at a really high rate from their ‘preferred insurance company. I’m pretty sure they get a kickback from their ‘preferred insurance. My insurance, State Farm and I caught them in several lies during this debacle. This is how he runs a business, just imagine what he’s doing with our tax dollars.

  13. Bullstitt thinks public data is private information.

  14. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  15. Sure it matters that the elected official who stated that he would protect the people who ( for some dumb reason), elected him is totally failing to do anything that would “bend the curve”. He has lied to us and ignored the facts that this virus is killing Oklahomans daily, to the tune on nearly 1,000 people. To say that nothing can be done is weak, irresponsible,and evil.Why is Stitt not questioned about his lies? Why has there no recall petition started to kick him out? What’s the tipping point? Do we not deserve good governance?
