‘Wrong Choice Of Words’: Fauci Walks Back Criticism Of Trump Coronavirus Response | MSNBC

    1. Trump’s solution is to blame Obama and end social distancing, the stock market will rebound and he gets to celebrate. Until the deaths mount up faster, and he blames Obama. Simple plan.

    2. So shameful how cnn hides facts from their viewers. They will sell their own country. CNNs ratings are low and I understand why

    1. That’s all jake tapper and the mass media do: imply things, create conflits, put people in defensive positions. They arent there to report news, rather to manufacture them, and to serve the agendas of their masters, not the people

  1. Man don’t judge Fauci he’s actually doing things that are important, I trust him with facts about this Virus more than anyone. He is explaining things in a good manner that makes sense. Plus he’s in my opinion, doing the right thing so far.

    1. @Sabina Lanning what about in late February (29)when he was saying you don’t have to change your habits and you can go on a cruise if you want, in an interview? Even after community spread, and after Trumps travel ban. He may be an expert, but it’s a new virus with so many unknowns. January 23 China locked down. January 21 first US case. Over a month later with community spread Fauci said that. Same time Pelosi was saying come to China town. Same time mayor of New York mayor wanted to shut down, Cuomo said no. Until it started getting bad. They called Trump a racist and xenophobe for his travel ban. My point is noone knows about this virus and long term effects. Especially since it’s looking like it did escape the bio lab in Wuhan. If it did who knows what its really capable of. You can’t even trust the experts, because they don’t know. Are you immune after you get it and recover, is it multi phase, does it never go away and keeps comming back, will a vaccine work? Will it mutate again, will it keep mutating? Their are already three variations of it. Noone knows, not even the experts. Trust them if you want. I’m gonna wait and see and take what they say with a grain of salt.

    2. @Nat White if he caused the virus, there would be a very large and severe punishment. That is considered terrorism, and he would be put in prison for life or worse. It has killed people as we all know. If doctor Fauci did create this virus and it was confirmed, Fauci would be in huge trouble

    3. @Delta Crimson Spear I don’t like to think evil, but something doesn’t seem right about this thing. I would hope there are enough checks and balances, but I just don’t know right now. This whole ID2020 plan seems insidious and ominous to me.

    4. @Nat White I to believe this is odd, but speculation can cause very bad outcomes. For now we should all work just with the proven facts we have and go from there.

  2. The doctor is walking on eggshells. Everyone is cautious of what they are saying, except Mr. Trump.

    1. George the Animal Steele so true couldn’t agree more.. I would say what poor man has to listen to behind closed doors with trump.. I’d say his mouth is on the floor. Why is everyone so intimated by that cowboy!

    2. @Jerry Ross I`m amazed by how much you leftists love lies and hate the truth. Sane Americans see right through you evil monsters. Remain in your bubble of idiotic lies…

    3. Tani Davis
      Really you think that Trump isn’t trying?
      Sure he may say things he shouldn’t, and he will many more times in the next 4 1/2 years.

      Why? Because Trump is NOT a politician. Just like this man here, the doctor. His choice are words are not used to having to speak so carefully as just proven.

      Trump has worked on his demeanor and his words.
      Don’t believe me?
      Go back to prior of becoming our President, watch how he acted then vs now.

      It’s sad thing the hate that Democrats have shown.

  3. Hey Doctor Fauci, great job getting back at media when they ask a loaded question or accuse you of something, tell it straight, tell it loud and tell them to take a jump off the bridge if they don’t believe you. President Trump and the Country should be shouting hurrah to have you where you are. Your credentials are far more impressive than the people asking the questions. Go Get Em Doc.

    1. Jeffrey McDowell – Confusion abounds!
      150,000 people die any typical day, Pre-Covid 19. It seems God has let this virus happen that spreads easily and lets people feel pretty bad, and then let’s most recover. Just because it is reported some died WITH it does NOT mean they died because of it. If you understand how God works, it stands to reason He is trying to humble people to salvation. The ones that haven’t may have died due to the health problems they already had. So we ruin the economy, thereby chancing death in the streets?

    2. @cybererik1 Actually numbnuts it is the other way around. This is not the first time that the media is tried to pin Fauci against Trump. Fauci even warned a couple of weeks ago for the media not to do this. What part of “The President has accepted my advice every time..” that you do not understand?

    2. Google Replier you don’t sound like a medically trained professional. God never established germ theory in major religions. People figured it out 100 years ago which is why we now wash our hands

    3. Faisal Hafeez – Faisal Hafeez – uh, research your bible and find the hand washing instructions came from it! Imagine that; God knowing this before ‘mighty’ men!

    4. @Google Replier The Quran also instructs handwashing, don’t be so quick to pat your god on the back. Mighty humans discovered antibiotics, C-sections and vaccines while your god was killing 1/2 of all babies during infancy.

    1. Fauci is brilliant and so incredibly accomplished. Now if only Trump would let him do his job and stop tweeting threats at him, we would all be in much better shape.

    2. Imagine how much more he could be doing if he wasn’t afraid of Trump’s fanbase coming after him and losing his job because of him criticising (which he should be doing) his response.

    1. Google Replier that is true but other deaths that you’re referring to are still happening, plus something that is extremely contagious that puts health workers at risk. It’s not that complicated to see why this is different. Watch some interviews with funeral homes and maybe it will sink in that these deaths are additional.

      “Call on God, but row away from the rocks” meaning, it’s not wrong to lean on faith but that doesn’t mean doing nothing

    2. “It seems God has let this virus happen that spreads easily and lets people feel pretty bad, and then let’s most recover.”
      You misspelled electromagnetism. Common typo.

    3. @Google Replier Hey man just some facts here. Ya know. Who cares about the economy dude?Does god care? Naw man. Just let the economy fall, God will only take those who deserve it. Right?

  4. Dr Fauci: *corrects comments
    Media: “Dr Fauci corrects comments”

    MSNBC: “Dr Fauci attempted to correct comments” (implying a failure to correct comments)
    The corporate press is the enemy of the people.

    1. The good thing is more and more people are seeing the truth. Out of this virus, the one good thing it has done is expose these fake puppets and see who’s pulling the strings.

    2. Spencer Mackel jake tapper harrassed him yesterday asking the same question 4 times til he got his (out of context) quote to print everywhere “fauci said lives could have been saved”.

      Manipulators

    3. @samsung a10 Chris Cuomo even expressed his disdain for the hyperpartisanship that goes on at CNN. Even when he clarified, Cuomo said, “it is frustrating to do this job in an environment where people are not interested and open. It is hard to practice journalism when people are so intent on believing what they want to believe for political advantage.”

  5. The look on Dr. Fauci’s face at the last question. “Dont even imply that”
    It seems to be an honest(annoyed or angry) response.

    Food for thought

    1. @pine apple i think you meant to say prostitute lol god can any of you orange man bad people type anything that makes sense?

    2. @Hank Scorpio the only reason he changed his choice of words is so the fake media would stop twisting what he said into something it’s not. You orange man bad cult members really need mental help.

  6. Does anyone know where I can buy some PPE? I worked at a local gas station, I saw people came in and out without wearing any protection!!!

    1. @sparkle sparklesThe fact is that God helps those who help themselves. So please, fellow Americans, get all the PPE you can find and USE IT whenever you leave your home. You don’t want to get this virus because it could be a death sentence for you and/or your loved ones. Be careful. Be smart. Be safe AND LIVE.

    2. @Mary Ann the only protection I need is my faith and your mask and social distancing won’t shield you from 5G.

  7. 2:43 Trump standing there like a kid in between his parents having an argument and having no idea whats going on hahahaa
