    Of course. Here come Wikipedia and the Oxford Dictionary.
    How did Trump assassinate Fauci’s character? Take 2.

    I never said Trump did, people in his administration have. I doubt they would do without his nod. Agree with it or not, but few would deny it is happening, his problem is he is not a yes man.

    He said erroneous? Well, pardon me.
    Look up “overreaching” in that dictionary :)

    Gunshow today, 90% no masks.
    Work mandates, can be fired if not wearing.
    Odd, 2 months prior to outbreak at work, they let a bunch of losers wear masks on chin.
    But now they "care"......about 20 positive and 22 on quarantine.
    If you answer "yes" on questionnaire you are out til tested neg, think on your own time.
    But if you come to work sick and they send you home, you get 10 days paid, after that burn sickleave........

    so what do you think is happening?

    The liberals come in sick, risking others. So they get paid (and don't have ti burn vac).
    Or they say "yes" on questionnaire on Thurs, are kept out of plant...........test Friday, get results Sat and back to work Mon. They lose a day or two pay, but get an extended weekend.

    Can still burn vac day (pay whenever) or just do without (sugar momma?).

    You can tell who does either of this crap..........the slacker workers, the liberals.
    Pretty revealing on character.

    Its not just them making risks for others, but people not showing up makes it harder on those that do..........we have people being moved, not enough to run machines, definitely affecting output..........and they will wonder why the profit sharing not what it should be.

    Clueless.

    Bastards.

    No the problem is he is a member of the swamp, telling the media what they want to hear. One of the drawbacks to Trump not having much gov't experience is that he assumes if you worked somewhere for 40 years you are competent, because if you worked for him for 40 years you had to be competent. This is true for the most part in the real world, not in government.

    Fauci proved his willingness to bend to the prevailing political winds in the 80s when aids first appeared. A skunk don't change his stripe.

    It's more than just Fauci. Dr. Fauci’s wife, Dr. Christine Grady, is also working on COVID. Christine Grady has some serious horsepower and the two are likely coordinating on some of these isolationist theories pertaining to COVID.

    My point being that if these two "experts" collaborate on the course they want the country to take on COVID, whether right or wrong, it's difficult for Trump to proclaim a different course........... and if they are operating from an agenda rather than pure science we're the ultimate losers.

    Christine Grady is a bioethicist who serves as the head of the Department of Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center.

    She was involved in the AIDS/HIV epidemic of the 1980s and published research on an HIV vaccine.

    Bioethics in medicine goes beyond deciding whether a treatment is ethical. Medical bioethics also examines working conditions for healthcare professionals and hospital staff. It also studies treatment accessibility and can determine if treatments are needlessly inaccessible due to unfair price inflation.

    For example, bioethics studies are guiding policy on schools reopening. Bioethicists like Christine Grady want to ensure that when schools reopen, they are done with minimal risks of students, teachers, and staff contracting COVID. The implement guidelines for distancing, sanitation, and masks.

    Bioethicists like Christine Grady also form policies on protections hospitals need to adhere to so doctors, nurses, and staff reduce their risk of contracting COVID or spreading it to other patients or their families.

    In fairness, everyone flip flops because today we know more than yesterday. Fauci didn’t know jack but he had to say something. Trump himself boasted zero deaths from covid back in February as an achievement. Being smarter today than three months ago is good enough for me.

    How much of your time and money has been wasted on this COVID? This COVID has effected less the 1% of our population. COVID will not end the human race. And let's not forget life is not fair. Life expectancy for me (born 1950) is 66.5 years I have beat the number by 3.5 years. So, whatever I die from is irrelevant; I beat the odds.

    If you at look what Fauci has said, he is saying the same as the government scientific advisers are in most countries. Its not rocket science if you want to cut down the infections and deaths, then you need masks social distancing etc. He gives the advice, it's then up to the politicians to decide what to do, he does not make policy.

    The meaning of slowing it down is to have hospital beds available without interruption. If they are full of covid and you have a heart attack, they will divert your ambulance, and no word on how soon it will arrive because the EMT's are sick.

    Wearing the masks Fauchi sits and hangs off one ear is useless. Telling folks otherwise is a great way for them to feel confident and catch the stupid bug.

    The virus is always going to be here. We ain't going to " beat it" anymore than we beat the flu.
