[WATCH] Dr. Fauci Benched By White House After Telling Truth About COVID
The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the lead health official in the fight against the coronavirus, Dr. Anthony Fauci has been pushed to the side by the White House, after he gets real about the pandemic. The White House has sidelined Fauci by canceling his guest appearances on tv and stopped bringing him to meet the President.
President Trump has been taking aim at Dr. Fauci in recent days, including, a recent appearance on Hannity. While on the show on Thursday Trump said that Fauci, “is a nice man, but he’s made a lot of mistakes.” According to a senior official within the administration said Fauci is “never in the Oval [Office] anymore.” The official also dispelled any belief that Trump was going to fire Fauci despite how he is treating him at the moment. Many would point out that directly firing a civil servant like Fauci is not exactly easy. Fauci is also very well-liked and respected by the majority of Congress.
Friends of Dr. Fauci also dispelled any rumors that quitting is anywhere in the doctor’s plans despite the negative outcomes we are seeing from the pandemic. Dr. Fauci has also not let being sidelined keep him quiet. Fauci has turned to social media, as well as, podcasts to keep talking about the coronavirus effort. During an interview last week with FiveThirtyEight, Fauci said, “As a country, when you compare us to other countries, I don’t think you can say we’re doing great. I mean, we’re just not.”
