Is Trump preparing to fire Dr. Fauci?
Based on his latest campaign rally in Florida, it could happen!
In the middle of Trump's rally, the crowd randomly began chanting.
At first, it was difficult to understand the new chant.
And then it became crystal clear.
Thousands of people were chanting:
Fire Fauci! Fire Fauci! Fire Fauci!
President Trump was clearly surprised.
This is the first time that the chant has ever been shouted at a Trump rally.
Without missing a beat, President Trump said:
Let me wait until shortly after the election.
See the incredible moment below:
Users on social media quickly picked up on the new chant.
Most people posting on Twitter supported the idea.
Some liberals are very angry (what's new?).
But the vast majority of posts seemed to agree with President Trump's statement.
See some of the comments below:
Dr. Fauci has flip-flopped on the use of masks.
He was wrong when he said that COVID-19 would not be a threat to the U.S.
Democrats hail him as a hero.
But he has had many blunders.
Take a look at this piece from USA Today:
Dr. Anthony Fauci has a good bedside manner with the public, but he has been wrong about everything I have interacted with him on.
In late January, when I was making the case on behalf of the president to take down the flights from China, Fauci fought against the president’s courageous decision — which might well have saved hundreds of thousands of American lives.
When I warned in late January in a memo of a possibly deadly pandemic, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases was telling the news media not to worry.
When I was working feverishly on behalf of the president in February to help engineer the fastest industrial mobilization of the health care sector in our history, Fauci was still telling the public the China virus was low risk.
When we were building new mask capacity in record time, Fauci was flip-flopping on the use of masks.
And when Fauci was telling the White House Coronavirus Task Force that there was only anecdotal evidence in support of hydroxychloroquine to fight the virus, I confronted him with scientific studies providing evidence of safety and efficacy. A recent Detroit hospital study showed a 50% reduction in the mortality rate when the medicine is used in early treatment.
Now Fauci says a falling mortality rate doesn’t matter when it is the single most important statistic to help guide the pace of our economic reopening. The lower the mortality rate, the faster and more we can open.
So when you ask me whether I listen to Dr. Fauci’s advice, my answer is: only with skepticism and caution.
Don't be surprised if the Democrats attempt to turn this into a "controversy."
But if the early social media posts are any indication, most people support President Trump over Fauci!
