  1. That’s why you told the American people it was just like a flu and face masks were required.
    Come on doctor faucci, what’s your relationship with world health organization?.

  2. Those “#fire fauci” tweets will show up any time now.

  3. Jeez this man has a mouth on both sides of his head.

      JC X Kind of like Nancy Pelosi

    • A second person from Sweden just nominated Trump for the Nobel peace prize. I know this trash doesnt report the news so I’m taking it upon myself. Latinos for Trump!!!A second person from Sweden just nominated Trump for the Nobel peace prize. I know this trash doesnt report the news so I’m taking it upon myself. Latinos for Trump!!!

    • He doesn’t have to. None of our rulers do. They all know it’s a hoax!

    • Dr Popper youtube she reads from other doctors’ your won’t hear of on media now

    • @Renee H Exactly. Every single one of these politicians AKA overlords keep on telling their peons to wear a mask when they themselves don’t wear one.

  6. Yeah because mass panic is ALWAYS a good thing right??? Remember when you couldn’t buy f’ing toilet paper? Cmon sheep.

    • @Chris L Dont be so simple-minded, in many countries their leadership spoke the truth about the virus without mass panic. I guess Trump doesnt have the leadership skills to do that.

    • Sometimes it is healthier to panic to a certain degree than to be deprived of the truth and end up dead because you follow the business as usual strategy.

    • @raini1220 highest survival rate of any “”deadly disease””

      and your rim got awfully dirty during that rush and you’re still looking for someone to stick it with right?

    • The mass panickers were majority Trump cultists who were screaming their love for Coward-in-Chief Bone Spurs as they SELFLESSLY stocked up for their large inbred families.

  7. Fauci also said different things than he does now too. I’m old enough to remember when he was opposed to the travel bans

    • Dr Popper youtube reads from Dr’s you won’t hear from now They use 27% of tests for covid why? because the others might reveal it doesn’t exist -Dr Popper

    • I remember that 1,000 or more doctors died in America because there was not PPE.

  8. It’s a agenda, flu hyped, now even the most dumbed down sheep are starting to see through this con

  9. “In all the history of respiratory-borne viruses of any type, asymptomatic transmission has NEVER been the driver of outbreaks. The driver of outbreaks is ALWAYS a symptomatic person…”

    “An epidemic is not driven by asymptomatic carriers.”

    — Dr. Anthony Fauci

    • PeachesCourage English?

    • PeachesCourage – how do they know who to use the 27% of test on??
      You need a bigger tinfoil hat.

    • When you know better you do better, once Americans started testing positive without symptoms Dr Fauci told us to put on a mask

    • Nobody knew all there is to know about COVID-19 when it first arrived. Dr. Fauci’s analysis reflects the consensus of the scientific community. The first reports of asymptomatic spread of the disease were faulty and therefore were discounted. But more and more evidence accumulated and the scientific consensus changed, and Dr. Fauci’s public remarks changed with it.

    • Jack Komisar – unlike Trump who started off knowing how dangerous it was and telling his suckers to keep working, and when new evidence cam ego mind kept telling his suckers to keep working.

  10. These people will say anything to get you against trump

    Downplaying protests is a distorted reality

  12. Fauci is more two faced than Harvey Dents coin, he literally just said on another interview that what the president said was what they spoke about prior to each press brief and that they were in agreement with what to tell the American people. So really this guy is a joke; just like Biden, Fauci says what he needs to say based on who he is talking to and what the political wind says. Stay classy MSNBC and Fauci…..

    “Come to Chinatown” (Skeletor Pelosi).

  14. Did he just downplay downplaying a threat?

  15. Trump was right. It was never as deadly as we’ve been told.

  16. “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” ― Mark Twain

  17. “If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself.”

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels

  18. “The second wave from the coronavirus” is the ultimate conspiresy theorie of the WHO to make people afraid!

  19. “You can fool some of the people some of the time, and you can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool some of the people some of the time.” Donald J. Trump

  20. Today people pick and choose the reality that they want to believe.
