Dr. Fauci and President Trump have been at odds over the past several months.
That conflict just came to a head.
Dr. Fauci went on TV and all hell broke loose with what he said about Trump.
Washington Post gossip writer Bob Woodward released his latest anti-Trump book, “Rage,” to massive anticipation by the fake news media.
Donald Trump granted 18 on-the-record interviews with the President and Woodward used the time to craft a book that surrounded Trump’s interviews with the typical anonymously sourced palace intrigue stories that Woodward is famous for to claim Trump is unfit to be President.
In one of the interviews with Woodward, President Trump said his goal with regards to the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic was to project confidence and not inspire panic.
“To be honest with you,” Trump told Woodward. “I wanted to always play it down. I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create a panic.”
The fake news media immediately began falsely claiming that President Trump lied to the public about the coronavirus and that he secretly knew it was deadly while claiming in public that it was no more serious than the flu.
This news cycle collapsed just like the Russian collusion hoax and the lie that Trump called dead marines suckers and losers.
But while the Russian collusion hoax took years to unravel and The Atlantic story about the President insulting the military took two days to unravel, the “President lied about coronavirus” story imploded in less than two hours.
And it was all because of none other than Dr. Fauci.
In an interview on Fox News, Dr. Fauci shutdown the lies that President Trump misled the American people about the severity of the coronavirus.
“He didn’t really say anything different than he discussed when we were with him,” Dr. Fauci told host John Roberts.
Fauci also backed up the President’s assertion that he did not want to create any panic as well as shooting down the idea President Trump misled in his public comments.
“Often he would want to, you know, make sure that the country doesn’t get down and out about things, but I don’t recall anything that was any gross distortion in things that I spoke to him about,” Dr. Fauci added.
What the President said to Woodward in private was no different than his public comments.
On March 30, Trump told the press that all his public comments were meant to reassure the public.
“The statements I made are: I want to keep the country calm. I don’t want to panic in the country. I could cause panic much better than even you,” President Trump explained.
This story is the fake news media grossly distorting what the President said in public and private to try and make it seem like he kept the dangers of the coronavirus hidden from the public.
But the President’s actions made it clear he took the outbreak seriously.
The President restricted travel from China, formed a coronavirus task force, closed down the border to Europe and eventually backed the controversial lockdown all while he was talking to Woodward.
There wasn’t an ounce of daylight between the course of action President Trump chose and his words in both public and private.
