Cornel West: ‘All Our Phones Are Tapped’

PJ Media asked West about the Ebola outbreak, specifically the treatment received by Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian who was originally sent home from the emergency room then later died at a Dallas hospital.

"Our care team provided Mr. Duncan with the same high level of attention and care that would be given any patient, regardless of nationality or ability to pay for care," Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital said in a statement.

West was asked if he agreed.

“I don’t have enough facts or data to make a judgment,” he said.

West was also asked if the U.S. should restrict travel from West African nations until the Ebola outbreak is contained.

“I just don’t know enough about it. I would have to really consult some of the people who have been reflecting on it,” West said. “Right now, I’m praying for all of the victims and their families because it looks like it’s getting out of control, though.”
