  1. Been waiting months and months. Shows how much people were afraid of upsetting Trump’s delicate ego.

    • He wasn’t afraid for himself. But was not given permission from the government as a senior govt functionary to speak to the media

      You might want to see the whole video before jumping to that conclusion. Its been years of listening to edited video from the mainstream media because of course they think your to stupid to make up your own mind about the truth, so they only report it one way. OR, they know your too smart and will come to the honorable and just conclusion of the truth, which will make you turn away in disgust from main stream media like 70 million others have done. Either way, its not about Trump its about mainstream media controlling the dialogue, stirring division and keeping up dissonance. It looks to me like its the media that is guilty of sedition, blatantly manipulating American minds. Its a travesty and miscarriage of justice what the corruption did to that man, but at least they didn’t break him!

    • Well, it would seem neither Fauci nor Maddow were afraid. But the Trump administration was (apparently).

      They weren’t afraid to, they simply werent allowed to.

      Jason Martin – you don’t think and chew gum at the same time, huh?

  2. Look at his smile, so very different than what was seen in the past year. Says to me, he is happy he can finally get to work to save people.

    • @wino99999 So, again. You didn’t answer with any substance. What is Joe doing to capitulate the virus? We had travel bans, etc. far before MSM, joe, and the democrats wanted so that we could temper initial waves. People have the right to wear masks or not as mandates are not laws and have been unenforceable, all but with business able to refuse to serve you. Everything you have is based on opinions. So, what is Joe doing? Theres a reason why your media and your base still talks about trump more than joe. And no, hes not the american people’s joe. He is the joe of who voted for him. Hes already killed 1000s of jobs and cost the economy billions thus far with the strokes of his pen. My friends did not vote for that and do not support that.

    • ​@John I. So where’s your substance or the substance behind Trumps lies…… Over 30,000 of them over 4 years. Wonder why Biden is called ‘Honest Joe’ – not a name you can align with Trump! And you keep on asking for my supporting fact’s, where’s yours….. Hmmm, Trump won the election in 2016 – well he took the ‘Electoral College Vote’ but did he win…. No he lost the public vote but took the Presidency. Did he win the last vote no, but he said it was stolen…. I guess you also believe that lie as well! Why don’t you try to come up with some supporting evidence like the lawyers didn’t in their more than 60 lawsuits alleging the same.

      And I never said a travel ban was the wrong thing to do, in fact internal travel should have also been banned in some instances even though it would severly impact many and their jobs, and ongoing prosperity for all concerned – too little was done too late and Trump did much too little over the last year!

      As far as mask wearing in public is concerned, do you touch your mask to re-align it, if so your hands are contaminated. Do you wear your mask before going through your front door, if you don’t then you are likely to get Covid especially if you live in any place of multiple occupancy as the stairwell is likely to be still swarming from droplets from others doing the same! Do you wear your non N95 mask for more than 4 hours at a time or place it in your pocket before replacing back onto your face, or don’t replace or bin it once damp – it’s contaminated!
      That’s how even wearing masks still doesn’t always stop the spread, but it’s better than doing nothing. Also, I would like to comment that the younger community do not seem to bother with the wearing of masks, gather together in groups on street corners and do not in most case show any symptoms. These same youngsters then go back home taking their newly acquired germs with them, and pass it onto their Mothers/Fathers and ultimately Grandparents. More Virus about the harder everyone has to work to prevent the spread.

      Everything takes time, Trump benefitted from Obama’s turnaround of the economy over 8 years, not saying everything Trump did was wrong, no some of what he did was right, but a lot of them were also wrong, like supporting the russians even against his own advisers. China needed taking to task, not sure import tarrifs are the answer as the american public end up paying for it but something had to be done.

      All I’m saying is there is good and bad in everything that is said and done by anybody or president. Things that affect some people positively affect others negatively, you can’t please everyone, but at least you can try to be honest about it – Trump wasn’t honest about a lot of things and it’s the american public in general that are suffering because of it!

    • @John I.
      Biden has made it to vice President and then to President of the United States of America. What have you done?
      Moved up from fry guy to flipping the burgers?
      I’d be surprised if your intelligence even got you that far.

    • @Mister Me Lol. You want to ask what I do for a living? Unlike many of who voted for Biden on promises of $15 an hour minimum wage, I have worked domestically and internationally in energy production. I have a phd in economics and am now semi retired at the age of 45 but still do consulting gigs if they pay enough. I also own mineral rights as well as lease zone of my land in west texas for companies to put wind turbines on. That’s what I do for a living. What do you do?

    • ​@John I. Presumably working in the petrochemical industry, which is why you quote 1000’s of jobs going to the wall because of Biden’s executive order to close the Keystone pipeline no doubt…. even though that’s exactly what he said he would do in his campaign and was still elected by 8M more people than Trump.

      But fossil fuels are a dying industry unlike renewable energy (Solar, Wind and tide/Wave). You even mention leasing your land for wind turbines, so you must realise the benefits of this type of energy – or do you just like the return on the leases and think they are a waste of time…. The new industries also pay better than that of the old fossil fuel industries for the majority and have more employment. And even if I and many others like me are wrong in their assumptions about global warming (where the poles are locked into another ice age, whilst the equator is much hotter than it is today, which is the endgame of Global warming as long as it’s not already too late!), I would rather live on a cleaner earth than a planet where we have extremes of weather and pollution, like we are seeing today!

      Try watching BTC here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5zBmaHyrAw talking about fossil fuel vs renewable industries and how lobbyists are trying to influence lawmakers. I know it won’t be easy to watch – although you criticised me for following MSNBC I do so for their reporting on many subjects as well as watching Fox, CNN and others, so I’m not closed off from seeing other opinions – but perhaps you may see some of the hold the petrochemical industry has over their lobbyists, such as Senator Ted Cruz!

  3. ehhh who were protesting for the freedom of speech , bearing firearms, while muzzeling a great scientist? The magats!

    • Arbiter of Truth | January 23, 2021 at 3:33 PM | Reply

      @Roni B they can never be allowed to be in power again. Not after what has just happened. They are a threat to our democracy. Period. And now that sensible Americans have seen that I expect voting to be their number 1 priority in years to come. They now see just how important it really is…👍

    • Whats wrong with bearing arms to protect yourself and your family? The world isn’t sunshine and rainbows you know🙄

    • @Outlaw DudeGaming Mag(g)ots have more redeeming qualities than the Magalonamaniacs.

    • @Outlaw DudeGaming Should be MAGGOTS

    • @Honest T
      You cultists need to learn how to count.

  4. “It was a tough situation” man, Dr. Fauci REALLY knows how to understate things. It was NIGHTMARISH, but I still think that hardly puts a finger on how terrible the situation really was.

    • Joanne Fitzpatrick | January 23, 2021 at 5:07 AM | Reply

      And the covid-19 crisis still is, just imagine how much better it could be right now if they had been allowed to be honest with the American public

    • Let’s be honest.. he doesn’t want to get murdered by insane maga idiots. Imagine what he tells his wife.

    • And over the entire time, he managed to limit himself to a singlr face palm over what our fearless leader was spouting. Dr. Fauci deserves man of the uear.

  5. It’s so good to see Dr. Fauci smiling and happy to be speaking. Unlike the last few months in the previous administration.

  6. OMG he looks decades younger. The stress has gone from his face. While he still has the pandemic to fight at least that is all he is fighting now. <3

    • @Necromonger you can’t say things like “liberal tactic” to anyone you disagree with.

    • The stress is gone because he doesnt have to worry about continuing putting on a show anymore. The virus is magically going away now that ” C’mon
      man” is in office…..

    • @Mister Me So to solve the problem you elect a president who’s touchy creepy, doesn’t know where he is half the time, can’t read a teleprompter, his brother is dirty, which the media blew off because they’re a liberal propaganda machine like the Nazis had, says you’re not black if you don’t vote democrat, we can go on. You sheep will vote for a shoe if it offered you stuff for free and said nice warm things.

    • @Albin M Dumb response sheep. It means you don’t have anything intelligent to say.

    • @Davy Jones “the virus is magically going away now” just like Trump promised and you are still mad? NO Wait. Trump said it would be gone last april or was it may or maybe on nov 3. It’s not the virus that has left, just the lies.

  7. He have a dificult time under trump,he have the aura of freedom now

  8. Any day without Trump’s voice n face on my TV is a good day.

      @Donut Touch’d My Special Place Greetings to you. I trust you watch disinformation channel Fox News and Breitbart too often. I hope you realize one day how amoral they are. Have a nice day!

    • Donut Touch'd My Special Place | January 23, 2021 at 12:16 PM | Reply

      @Sebastian Miller neither, don’t know who the brieber guy is frankly. I’m talking about how much more america puts into the world programs in comparison to other countries contributions. I dont think its fair for the American taxpayer.
      There’s a pdf that outlines the defence expenditures from 2013 to 2019 of all countries that pay into nato. America is never below 647 million annually.
      2013- NATO total (in US million dollar units) was 968,944. Canada/Europe brought 288,088 and America paid 680,856. We foot the vast majority of the bill, the rest of the world then benefits from American taxpayers. I dont see how thats fair, if we all go to dinner why is America always taking the check when we don’t even get all the food?
      Nowhere in the world does anyone happily pay full price for the landscaper to only do 1/3 of a yard. Or paint 1/3 of house, get 1/3 of the groceries you bought. So if it’s not acceptable on a personal level, why is it ok at an international level?

    • ❤️

    • He’s gone now, maybe you losers can’t finally get a life. I doubt it.

    • @bruce He’s the won that built the strongest economy in the world.Hope your husband can find a job during the biden depression.

  9. This man speaks like a man who truly has been “set free from captivity”. I’m really happy for him now. Truly.

  10. The more distant Trump gets, the worst he looks. What a terrible man and even worst president.

      @Marius Koen my condolences to you and your family. I do not change my stance on corona though. You look like your also starting to get up there in age, how old were they?
      I’ll bet that they had already lived long lives, saw their kid grow up, and time was coming an end already, virus or no. I dont mean that in a disrespectful way either, most rona deaths were old folks- it sucks but play the hand your dealt and get over it- yall cry more than any 7 yr old kid with cancer ive ever met. Its fn embarrassing.

    • lol more like the better trump looks, biden has already put americans out of jobs, signed us back up to pay for other nations pollution problems, disrespected our national guardsmen, and revived the military industrial complex redeploying troops in the middle east. but i guess some people like the destruction of war and paying taxes to fix other nations before our own.

    • @Donut Touch’d My Special Place
      Did it ever occur to you that if you were not a bunch of ignorant uneducated backwater daughter Humper’s like trump maybe you would not say such stupid things?

    • Well said…

    • @Donut Touch’d My Special Place Some like you will never learn….demean death to justify your cult leader. You’re disgusting….Trump is being exposed and so are you.

  11. “Because I like her and I think she’s good” I bet that made her day.

    • HeyNonyNonymous | January 23, 2021 at 8:37 PM | Reply

      Maybe her hour. Rachel never struck me as the kind of person who’s desparate for approval (unlike some people who recently got kicked out of American politics…)

    • @Bill T Marchi there are literally reems of paper she’s shown where trump paid no taxes…..so……I don’t really know what to say to you

    • @HeyNonyNonymous maybe you are too dumb to see it. By the way trump won the election. You are obviously to dumb to see that also. A first grade slacker could see the corruption going on and the blantantly obvious lies and cover up and hide the truth leftwing media pushing it.

      Pandering…brown nosing.

      @Bill T Marchi well at least I share my stupidity with the Georgia Republican administration, Mitch MCconnel, Liz Cheney, Lindsay Grahm, every judge that had to preside over the 64 law suits Trump put forward, and every former president still alive. You can keep your wisdom. It seems like it doesn’t have too many buyers these days.

  12. He seems so relieved, relaxed, and calm… now he can speak the truth without having to be terrified of losing a job he’s had for years

    This poor man – I’m sure being able to even say these words are healing for him. He has such a big job to do & now he can concentrate on doing it instead of stressing over how can he do his job – his integrity prevented him from being fired and now he’s so happy

  14. Create And Adorn | January 23, 2021 at 4:04 AM | Reply

    I’ve never seen someone so happy to take on one of the hardest jobs imaginable- bless you Sir!

  15. Republicans, “Fauci didn’t tell us!!!”

    Fauci now, “Your cult leader didn’t allow it”.

  16. This is what taking the handcuffs off looks like.

  17. I respect how, even now, he’s cautious and professional with how he characterizes the prior administration. A level of restraint I would not be able to muster.

  18. A truth seeker and a truth teller, being able to speak the truth, how refreshing! No wonder they’re all smiles!

  19. This is what the end of a dictatorship looks like.

  20. We need legislation that accredited scientists cannot be fired for speaking to the press. WE HAVE PAID THEIR SALARIES AND WE HAVE A RIGHT TO THEIR KNOWLEDGE IF IT WILL SAVE OUR LIVES.
