Yesterday on CNN, Dr. Fauci was saying that President Trump didn’t listen to him in mid-February about social distancing and had he listened, could’ve saved more lives. An interesting twist of ideas, an easy way out, whatever you want to call this latest line of “insights,” the facts don’t support the fiction.
Dr. Fauci is on tape February 29 saying there is nothing to worry about. When asked if Americans should change their habits – not go to the mall, avoid the gym – Dr. Fauci told Today.com reporters:
“No, right now at this moment there is no need to change anything that you’re doing on a day-by-day basis.”– Dr. Anthony Fauci, Feb. 29, 2020 on Today.com

But this latest Fauci fabrication is just part of an entire ideology of subterfuge, diverting attention away from his own wrongdoings and false predictions.
Dr. Fauci, while quick to criticize Trump, is also just as quick to defend the World Heath Organization (WHO) when they totally accepted all of China’s bogus data and wildly misleading claims in January and February that there was no human-to-human transmission of the coronavirus or the statistics China offered that seemingly showed low infection rates and mortality rates compared with Western nations.
In addition, China claimed all cases abruptly ceased in March, almost like a magical on-off switch had been toggled and the coronavirus flew away, an insidious bat disappearing into the dark night. Again, not true. But according to Chinese authorities, the curve of the Chinese brand of this virus didn’t flatten; it just dropped off like the precipice of a steep cliff. This chart is the purported trajectory of the virus in China via worldometers.info:
No flattening of the curve here, no gradual lessening. So, is the Chinese reporting of the COVID-19 cases true? Well, we can look elsewhere for corroboration. There is no comparable curve in any other affected country that even remotely looks like this strange graph.
But back to our “Trump could’ve saved more lives” hero in all this, Dr. Fauci, who is oddly quiet about the origin of the virus itself. Why isn’t he demanding a CDC team travel to Wuhan, China and investigate what actually happened there? He certainly can make demands of our own President.
Checking the virology lab in Wuhan, which at one point the National Institutes of Health (NIH) helped fund, is imperative. Dr. Fauci always defends the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) but the statistics that organization produced have been horribly wrong, even when factoring in mitigation and social distancing measures. Dr. Fauci was also originally quiet about the China travel ban but later, in hindsight, praised it. His vocal cords seemed to gain particular strength, however, when announcing the predicted death tolls in America. On March 29, he told CNN’s State of the Union, “I would say between 100,000 and 200,000 deaths” then revised that number to say “it could be more like 60,000” on April 9.
While we don’t know the reason behind the good doctor’s erratic and downright wrong predictions that led to a total and probably catastrophic economic shutdown, there’s one thing we can surmise: He is obviously not to be trusted.
Dr. Fauci referred to the economic shutdown as “inconvenient.” (Although the lack of convenience can’t be applied to him; this lifelong bureaucrat’s income has not been affected.) So, while he collects his paycheck, millions upon millions of Americans will suffer because of the “inconvenient” shutdown. The consequences of putting our economy on halt will be far worse and longer lasting than this virus.
