Dr. Fauci’s been at war with Donald Trump doing everything in his power to sabotage the President’s re-election campaign.
But Dr. Fauci made a huge mistake.
And Dr. Fauci’s response to this question just gave Trump the opening to fire him.
“When I saw that on TV, I said, ‘Oh my goodness. Nothing good can come out of that. That’s got to be a problem.’ And then, sure enough, it turned out to be a superspreader event,” Dr. Fauci told 60 Minutes.
Dr. Fauci also mocked President Trump saying he was not surprised that the President contracted the coronavirus.
But Dr. Fauci’s famous “tell it like it is” persona flies into retreat when asked to offer the same analysis of left-wing protests.
Thousands of radical leftists gathered in Washington, D.C. to jam up the streets and rage against Donald Trump.
Since Dr. Fauci called an event with 150 people in attendance a “superspreader event,” media outlets wondered if he would apply the same standard to a left-wing protest with 100 times more people gathering.
The answer, it turned out, was Dr. Fauci will not comment on left-wing protests.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“Dr. Anthony Fauci has not commented on whether the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., was a ‘superspreader event…’
…Fauci, however, has not condemned the gathering for breaking coronavirus health guidelines on social distancing after a request for comment from the Washington Examiner.”
This is leading many Trump supporters to believe Dr. Fauci is a quack doctor and a partisan saboteur out to wreck Donald Trump’s re-election and elect Joe Biden.
Americans got a taste of Dr. Fauci’s partisan medical advice when he testified before the House and Congressman Jim Jordan grilled Dr. Fauci on why there were restrictions on going to church but not Black Lives Matter protests despite both activities being protected by the First Amendment.
At first, Dr. Fauci tried to weasel his way out of the question.
“Crowding together, particularly when you’re not wearing a mask, contributes to the spread of the virus,” Dr. Fauci responded.
“Should we limit the protesting?” Jordan shot back.
Dr. Fauci, who sits on the coronavirus task force that shapes health recommendations to the states, then complained he had no authority to set policy so he would not comment on why churches were closed but riots were permitted.
“I’m not in a position to determine what the government can do in a forceful way,” Fauci whined.
“I haven’t seen people during a church service go out and harm police officers or burn buildings,” Jordan responded. “No limit to protests, but you can’t go to church on Sunday.”
Dr. Fauci then tried to claim the virus did not spread at protests.
“I said crowds,” Dr. Fauci declared. “I didn’t say protests do anything … crowds are known, particularly when you don’t have a mask, to increase the acquisition and transmission.”
It’s clear from his answers that Dr. Fauci is a partisan hack using so-called “expert” advice to advance his political agenda.
And that is leading many Americans to hope Donald Trump fires Dr. Fauci after the election.
