Dr. Fauci needs to tell the media to stop it
Like many of you, I saw that bold headline on Drudge Report about Fauci "unloading" on Trump.
Normally, I don't watch CNN. Few people do as the ratings reports tell us.
So I read Tony Katz and found this:
America’s infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, appeared on CNN and told Jake Tapper that “obviously” fewer people would have coronavirus if we had shut down the country earlier. He punctuated it by saying there was “push back” to the idea:
Obviously, if we had right from the beginning shut everything down it may have been a little bit different. But there was a lot of pushback about shutting things down back then.
A full listen to his answers show Dr. Fauci wasn’t aggressively laying blame anywhere, and he repeatedly warned against second guessing.
He stated clearly, for example, that comparisons to South Korea were illogical.
Nevertheless, CNN was screaming all day long that Dr. Fauci and President Trump were on an inevitable clash.
So was he "going rogue" on President Trump?
I don't think so, or want to give him the benefit of the doubt.
At the same time, I would feel a lot better if Dr. Fauci would tell the media to stop the partisan second guessing.
