Fauci Throws Trump Under The Bus On CNN, POTUS Slaps Doctor With Rude Awakening

Dr. Anthony Fauci is making waves at the White House after his appearance on CNN on Easter Sunday. The infectious disease expert claimed that if “Trump listened to the medical experts earlier, he could’ve saved more lives.” Well, President Donald Trump isn’t about to let some Hillary Clinton fanboy wrongly accuse him of killing Americans. That’s why the president slapped him with a rude awakening. Don’t miss this.

Dr. Anthony Fauci has lost all credibility and has become totally politicized by the Democrats and their mainstream media cohorts. The problem is that within a 24 hour period, Fauci will make a statement, then contradict the initial assertion, then attempt to cloud his own conflict with obtuse and wordy explanations.

This is exactly what happened over the weekend. Fauci, who is the Director of the National Health Institute, appeared on CNN with Jake Tapper on Sunday, and that’s when all hell broke loose. He made the allegation that “there was a lot of pushback about shutting things down” in the beginning, and that led to American lives lost.

“I mean, obviously, you could logically say that if you had a process that was ongoing and you started mitigation earlier, you could have saved lives,” he said on “State of the Union” on CNN. “Obviously, no one is going to deny that. But what goes into those kinds of decisions is complicated. But you’re right. Obviously, if we had, right from the very beginning, shut everything down, it may have been a little bit different. But there was a lot of pushback about shutting things down.”

These are the type of soundbites Trump’s enemies live for.

In other words, Fauci’s saying the president is responsible for not shutting the country down earlier and Americans died. That’s when former Congressional candidate DeAnna Lorraine tweeted: “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…”

President Trump retweeted that post with the “FireFauci” hashtag and added: “Sorry Fake News, it’s all on tape. I banned China long before people spoke up. Thank you @OANN.”

Responding to the Fauci statement, the New York Times immediately jumped on the bandwagon by publishing a piece that claimed Trump had been too late to act.

The president countered that by tweeting: “The @nytimes story is a Fake, just like the ‘paper’ itself. I was criticized for moving too fast when I issued the China Ban, long before most others wanted to do so.@SecAzar told me nothing until later, and Peter Navarro memo was same as Ban (see his statements). Fake News!”

Fauci is in damage control. His reputation is on the line as the coronavirus prediction models have been all wrong. The models have been so off, Fauci is now claiming those models “never influenced national health policy.”

“There’s been a debate about possible political motives surrounding the panic [Fauci] has created; the massive economic damage he has inflicted; and the conflicting assertions of National Institute of Allergy and Infections Diseases (NIAID) Director Dr. Anthony Fauci,” Conservative Treehouse reports. 

Fauci’s motives are sketchy. He appears to use his position to advance theories and yet position himself to avoid scrutiny.

On February 29, it was Dr. Fauci who said we did not need to worry or change any of our habits:

Fauci also was against Trump’s China Travel ban. 

According to Axios, at a meeting behind the scenes, Trump adviser Peter Navarro and Fauci were at odds after Navarro brought a ton of data on the anti-malarial drugs to present to the task force. Fauci downplayed the data.

“You were the one who early on objected to the travel restrictions with China, saying that travel restrictions don’t work,” Navarro said to Fauci.

Paul Sperry gives additional insight into the fight on the China travel ban by saying sources claim Fauci was so dead set against it he told President Trump “that such travel bans only delay the eventual spread.”

WikiLeaks discovered emails that show Fauci is a secret fanboy of Hillary Clinton. 

Back when Hillary Clinton was before Congress over the Benghazi killings, Fauci wrote in an email to Hillary’s aide Cheryl Mills: “Wow! Very rarely does a speech bring me to tears, but this one did it. Please tell the Secretary that I love her more than ever you guys too, of course.”

In another email, Fauci wrote: “Anyone who had any doubts about the Secretary’s stamina and capability following her illness had those doubts washed away by today’s performance before the Senate and the House. She faced extremely difficult circumstances at the Hearings and still she hit it right out of the park. Please tell her that we all love her and are very proud to know her.”

Dr. Fauci is not an elected official. However, Trump can remove him from the task force. If he continues to bash the president, then it’s likely Fauci will be sent packing. Americans want to get back to work. We don’t need Hillary Clinton fanboys like Fauci playing politics during a national emergency.
