“The Times story includes dozens of dramatic photos, many of them credited to the WHO. The article can be read in its entirety here at msn dot com without having to navigate the newspaper’s restrictive pay wall. Suffice it to say that it attempts to break major new ground in the dominant media’s and the left’s largely evidence-free contention that Trump fumbled the federal government’s response to Covid-19 since day one and that as a result Americans died.”
(Peter Barry Chowka – American Thinker) For the first time in the 2020 coronavirus crisis, President Trump has appeared to publicly put some major distance between himself and the Coronavirus Task Force’s principal medical advisor and spokesman, Anthony Fauci, M.D….
For 36 years, Dr. Fauci has been the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, where he has directed the federal government’s decades-long, unprecedentedly well-funded campaign against HIV/AIDS.
Indications of President Trump’s mounting unhappiness with Fauci came in a tweet by the president yesterday at 6:51 PM EDT in which he retweeted a tweet by DeAnna Lorraine, a Republican who unsuccessfully challenged Rep. Nancy Pelosi in the California primary last month, that included the line “Time to #FireFauci:”
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
Sorry Fake News, it’s all on tape. I banned China long before people spoke up. Thank you @OANN
DeAnna Lorraine @DeAnna4Congress
Fauci is now saying that had Trump listened to the medical experts earlier he could’ve saved more lives.
Fauci was telling people on February 29th that there was nothing to worry about and it posed no threat to the US public at large.
Time to #FireFauci…
Lorraine’s tweet referred to what Fauci said during an interview with Jake Tapper on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday morning – comments that quickly went straight to the top of the daily news cycle on Easter Sunday, including a banner red headline for most of the day at the top of the Drudge Report, and trended on social media.
