Dr. Fauci holds ground against Trump official’s attack

Dr. Fauci holds ground against Trump official's attack 1

 

The public battle between President Donald Trump's economic and medical advisers stretched into another day after Peter Navarro, the senior White House trade official, apparently broke protocol by publishing an opinion article trashing Dr. Anthony Fauci late.
Fauci, in his most forceful pushback to date against White House attempts to discredit him, warned his fellow administration officials a day later that they were harming the President's credibility. Speaking to The Atlantic, Fauci called White House attacks on him "bizarre" and said they ultimately damaged Trump.
"I cannot figure out in my wildest dreams why they would want to do that," he said. "I think they realize now that that was not a prudent thing to do, because it's only reflecting negatively on them."
He was speaking as the White House worked to distance itself from Navarro's opinion piece, which contained viewpoints similar to opinions voiced by Trump himself and distributed by the White House over the weekend.
The White House communications office insisted Navarro did not clear his article through them before it was published in USA Today. Trump himself called the piece a mistake.
But the sentiment Navarro expressed — that Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease specialist, had been wrong on multiple occasions during the pandemic — was the same one White House officials espoused over the weekend when they questioned his record to reporters.
Trump on Wednesday brushed off the episode in the Oval Office before taking a more forceful stance as he departed the White House for Atlanta.
"He made a statement representing himself," Trump said when questioned about the article. "He shouldn't be doing that. I have a very good relationship with Anthony."
"We're all on the same team," Trump said, "including Dr. Fauci."
Still, Trump stopped short of refuting or condemning the content of the article or detailing any recriminations for his top trade aide.
The confusing and fraught dynamic between obviously warring factions of the administration seemed to epitomize the culture of infighting that Trump has accepted and, at times, actively cultivated during his tenure in office. That it is occurring in the middle of a global pandemic has only amplified the questions of competency surrounding the administration's response to the crisis.

  2. When a politician questions a scientist on a purely scientific question, you know who is right

      Rumsfeld was head of the FDA one point in time Cocacola paid Rumsfeld to push aspartame as a safe alternative to sugar. 2 scientists proved aspartame to be harmful so Rumsfeld bought 2 other scientists to say it was safe. Point is politicians can’t be trusted either can scientists, Research Fauci and what he did about the aids virus in the 90s, might change your perspective on the man

  3. Fauci is working in an office where him and him alone makes perfect sense.

    This is cowardly attacking a doctor who’s more accomplished than all of them

  6. There’s a long list of deranged leaders: Caligula, Stalin, Hitler, Ceausescu, Pol Pot, Pinochet, Videla, Franco, Mussolini and now Trump.

      Keep stretching to find the parallels between Trump and Hitler, but hurry before all history books of socialist societies slipping into communism disappear and history repeats itself.

    • @Jse contractors Inc.
      That’s odd. I don’t see a single corrupt person on your personal list. Could it be because you’re breaking at the seams like your ORANGE SWINE GURU? Come on, everyone has potential. Be a man, grow some balls, get educated, get a life. No one forces you to wallow in the Republican spittoon. You have every right to become a wholesome person. Stay away from the Republican swamp. You’ll NEVER regret it and you’ll NEVER come back. Try it, you’ve got nothing to lose.

    • Didn”t they all come to not tragic enough ends?

  7. Nero fiddles while Rome burned, Trump golfs while America dies of Covid-19.

    • bosephusx Maybe that is the plan. Trump is all about money, a racists and un-empathetic. He wants blacks and elderly and compromised people to die because in the end it will cost the country less money and it’ll whittle down the number of blacks. The man is an uncaring monster.

    • Mary Mclocke science and medicine are an always changing and fluid in dynamics….. at one time lobotomies were heralded as breakthrough medicine… no one today would ever get a lobotomy. Has Fauci been wrong? Yes, but he’s accepted his mistakes and always given the truth. Can’t say the same about Trump…..

      @Mary Mclocke Do you understand what “evolving Science” means?
      Dr Fauci and in fact everyone who has a Scientific background understands that and they tell us when their understanding about a phenomenon changes.
      This virus is new. Remember it started only last year. At the beginning very little was known about it, so they said masks are not important.
      Once they learn more about the virus, they have changed that view.
      This is NOT lying.
      You should have the brains to differentiate that fact though.

      Joe Hampton sadly so are the 10’s of millions of Americans that somehow still support this regime.

    Dear my American neighbours,
    “You’re fired!”
    Trump’s favourite phrase on a show I used to like.
    He needs this phrase turned on him now. Enough is enough. Americans deserve so much better.
    Sincerely, a Canadian neighbour.

  11. I love how Trump throws his cohorts under the bus without a second thought yet they follow him slavishly.

    • Another added little note if you haven’t heard dr. Dan Erickson in California was doing a heart patients autopsy and of course the hospitals getting paid $30,000 to lie so they forced him to say it was covid-19 but he put his video on the YouTube telling the truth God bless him he said this is happening all over the country the government is paying the hospital’s $30,000 each patient that dies to lie and say it’s literally lying to their families and the public this is really happening this is truth research it you’ll find out I work in the healthcare field so I see it and I know it

    • And the proof is in the records you see pneumonia cases flu cases and heart attack cases going way down because those are now being called covid-19 pretty simple to see the truth

    • Let’s not fall into slavery America is a free country let’s keep it that way

  12. Dr. Anthony Fauci: President 2020

    • Could be

    • Tanner Wilson | July 15, 2020 at 9:14 PM | Reply

      Yo Mama He’s almost 80 years old. I’m sure he wouldn’t want the additional responsibility. I’m sure the first opportunity he gets, he will look to resign his position. He could have a much bigger impact in this pandemic as an independent by resigning his position and being out of Trump’s influence. We also need to look at getting international help. Test kits and tracing from 🇰🇷 which has been by far the most accurate in the world.

    • Your an idiot.. Ok lets make him a president because he’s a doctor.

    I think the President is trying to blame his out of control pandemic on the good doctor ,…

  15. The most evil, corrupt and self-centered administration in the history of the nation. It has no will to help the general population of the nation, just their own bank accounts.

  16. Republicans have been secretly at war with Science for a long time. Only now is it becoming obvious.

      It was always obvious, a lot of them are creationists. By the way, in this days now the extreme left has become science deniers, they say transwoman are real woman and their cancel culture threatens to enforce that view on everyone. They deny biology when it does not suit their ideological view.

    • It’s not very secret. They have been denying climate change for decades.

    • ​@julio1c1saga thats getting into a whole separate issue, one where science has difficulties following. Does our biology determine who we are, how we act, how we think? Start to think about how different and unique each person’s brain can develop. Not everyone is going to come out “traditional”. It’s not a question of biology. My reproductive organs are just objects.
      The real question is, are these “nontraditional” humans mentally ill? How severe?

    • @julio1c1saga Get back on your drugs 😱

  17. I feel so sorry for Dr Fauci. We owe that man a beer. Americans need to appreciate him & wear masks.

    • @Donna Johnson for giving you social distancing and masks

    • Mary Mclocke
      Pay close attention to the video you linked. At 1:05, he makes it clear that people who are ill or high risk (like you) should be wearing masks, but he wanted most people to save masks for healthcare workers, which were in very short supply at that time (March).
      Also pay attention to the part where he says they mostly prevent a person from spreading it to others – the masks are to protect others, not yourself.
      Now that the numbers have skyrocketed, and more masks are now available, he does want everyone to wear the masks. He wasn’t lying. People just weren’t listening, and weren’t taking the danger seriously. Don’t blame Fauci.

    • Cathy his words were “masks will do more harm than good.” How does that change to the complete opposite, from a man whose studied viruses for 50 years, overnight?

      I feel sorry for him to,and all of the Ali’s America used to have

  18. The doctor has never lied to us but we all know someone and his minions that stack up a wall of lies.

  19. Most educated words: he is in his own world. Says a doctor.
