The White House is furious with the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci after he threw President Trump under the bus.
“It’s unacceptable and breaking with all norms for Dr. Fauci, a senior member of the President’s Coronavirus Task Force and someone who has praised President Trump’s actions throughout this pandemic, to choose three days before an election to play politics,” said White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere.
In a paraphrased quote to the Washington Post Fauci gave Biden’s COVID-19 glowing reviews and dumped on the President.
Fauci said former vice president Joe Biden’s campaign “is taking it seriously from a public health perspective.” Trump, Fauci said, is “looking at it from a different perspective.” He said that perspective was “the economy and reopening the country.”
Deere hammered Fauci:
“As a member of the Task Force, Dr. Fauci has a duty to express concerns or push for a change in strategy, but he’s not done that, instead choosing to criticize the President in the media and make his political leanings known by praising the President’s opponent — exactly what the American people have come to expect from The Swamp,” Deere concluded.
In the interview with the Washington Post Fauci continued his narrative claiming the entire country is facing a resurgence of the virus this winter.
“We’re in for a whole lot of hurt. It’s not a good situation,” Fauci said. “All the stars are aligned in the wrong place as you go into the fall and winter season, with people congregating at home indoors. You could not possibly be positioned more poorly.”
Fauci said during the interview that the President is too concerned about reopening the country and not taking the issue of public health seriously.
Fauci concluded that he will continue to do media interviews to “try to get the message out” but told the Post that he “needed to be careful with his words because he would be blocked from doing appearances in the future.”
Dr. Fauci better hope Biden wins because one of two things is going to happen if he doesn’t. First, Fauci could be fired immediately should President Trump win or Fauci could be “reassigned” to a medical research project in some remote corner of the world.
