Trump: 'I disagree' with Fauci on COVID-19 in the US

Source: MSN

Trump, speaking Tuesday in a TV interview, disagreed with Fauci, a key player on the White House's own Coronavirus Task Force.

"I think we are in a good place," the president said in an interview on the "Full Court Press" news show hosted by a former Fox News anchor, adding: "I disagree with him."

"Dr. Fauci said don't wear masks, now he says wear them," he continued, adding that the immunologist has "said numerous things" that according to Trump were bad advice.

"So we've done a good job. I think we are going to be in two, three, four weeks, by the time we next speak, I think we are going to be in very good shape," Trump added.

I guess Trumpsters can take it to the bank that in a few weeks we will "be in very good shape."

6. "So we have done a good job .. in 2, 3, or 4 weeks ...

.... we are going to be in very good shape."

By good shape does Trump mean 150,000 dead and 3.5 million cases of C-19?

Like early March? He's not saying that now, President Asshole.

Trump's Solipsism makes me

16. Because they were concerned we all were going to run out and buy masks and

they didn't have enough for health workers.

24. That's what I thought I remebered, thanks.

Typical of a narcissist to turn that statement against him; undermining Fauci's expertise.

Everyone gets dragged into the sty with President Pig. Everyone has to be made out a liar just the same as him.

8. Hey trump, here are some simple numbers:

World population - 7.8 BILLION people, 11.8 million cases, 550 thousand deaths
US population - 330 million people, 3 million cases, 133 thousand deaths

Only 4% of the world population but 26% of all cases and 26% of all deaths.

We're in very good shape?

11. So he's criticizing the best science that was available at a point in the past

With the benefit of hindsight he's cherry-picked statements that weren't perfect.

As a result of these "imperfect" scientific statements, any or all similar statements can be discredited moving forward.

This is as anti-science as it gets, folks.

He probably doesn't even realize how truly anti-science that is.

18. I don't think it has anything to do with best science available.

The concern was, if public was told to wear masks, public was going to buy masks in large numbers, and there was a severe shortage of PPE even for health workers.
Even now public is told to wear cloth masks. This virus is airborne. So cloth masks is not the best protection available. But we still don't have enough proper PPE.

23. Very misleading

Like it or not, Fauci's messaging on masks in March included statements that they were pointless and possibly even had unintended consequences (in addition to health care workers needing them).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=oLNBw7XCM4Q&feature=emb_logo

Again, the science has evolved. Weaponizing imperfect statements from a time when less information was available and not allowing the science to improve is anti-science.

13. He's a fucking idiot who will literally say anything

.. I always marvel at how talking heads parse his words on a daily basis as if there's some deeper meaning, some underlying code. He's just a fucking moron with the mind of an 8 year old. He's completely egoistic its just that he's mostly too stupid to even know whats in his own best interests.

25. He's a dimwit, but he lies with purpose.

He lies to deflect blame, he lies to attack, he lies to conflate, he lies to self-aggrandize, he lies to destroy truth.

He has considerable skill, as he is very practiced and has no conscience. The fact that his lies are transparent and often absurd does not make them less effective: gaslighting does not require plausibility.

Rachel Maddow said last night that Mary L. Trump's book shows that he lies for his own pleasure as well. He is a Sociopath.

15. Even with governors like DeSantis fudging the numbers

the picture is bleak. Anyone that believes Florida has had only 3840 deaths from 214,000 positive cases - half the rate of the country as a whole is NUTZ. The state is filled with geezers and retirement communities and facilities.

21. Why do People Keep Listening to this Idiot!!

 

Nothing in that piece explores the foundation of trumps wisdom on this matter. Where are his facts, where does he get his information from. Is he just making this stuff up? Is it just wishful thinking? GIVEN HOW EXTREMELY WRONG HE'S BEEN JUST WITH THIS VIRUS, WHY SHOULD WE EVEN LISTEN TO HIM. WHY WOULD ANY INTELLIGENT PERSON TAKE THE WORD OF A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR WITH TEXTBOOK NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER?

WHY DOES THE MEDIA LOVE THIS MAN SO MUCH? WHY DO THEY KEEP ASKING HIM QUESTIONS WHEN THEY KNOW HE'S JUST GOING TO ANSWER THEM---WITH BULLSHIT!!

PROOF: Nowhere in that article does the reporter ask "Based on what? What information do you have to back up your assertions? Why should people take your word over Dr Fauci? Why does Dr Fauci have a job if he doesn't know what he talking about--you hired him?"

26. You saw that this was an interview with a RW Noise Machine outfit?

"the "Full Court Press" news show hosted by a former Fox News anchor"?

Trump will never participate in a conversation with a smart, prepared, objective journalist; he is there to talk, not to listen.

27. People who are anti-science have a hard time grasping how science works

The idea that new information can change how you respond to problems is confusing and scary to them.

It also explains why they cling to the Bible so strongly. It's absolute, unchangeable. It can't be questioned. It gives them comfort.
