Dr. Anthony Fauci defended President Donald Trump from claims Wednesday that he lied about the coronavirus, telling Fox News: “I don’t recall anything that was any gross distortion in things that I spoke to him about.”

On Wednesday, it was revealed that Trump told journalist Bob Woodward that he had downplayed the threat of the coronavirus pandemic to prevent the public from panicking.

Trump spoke to Woodward several times, as the latter researched his latest book about the administration, Rage.

The Washington Post went further, saying that Trump had been “intentionally misleading” Americans.

Trump’s rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, made a similar argument on the campaign trail in Michigan on Thursday, telling members of the United Auto Workers that Trump had “lied” about the coronavirus pandemic, calling Trump’s admission “a life and death betrayal of the American people.”

But Fauci, who is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told Fox News later: “I don’t think [Trump] ever distorted things that I spoke to him about.”

He also told Woodward he didn't want to start a panic.  This was in March.  At the time I think he was trying, rightfully,  to keep the country open or shut it down for weeks not months.

Now comes Woodward. What’s this, the 5th or 6th book in recent weeks pushed by Drudge and the media and intended to elect Biden and smear Trump?  And where are all the books exposing Biden?  I’ll discuss this on my radio show this evening.

1. We all knew the media would try to win this election for Biden.  And the daily drumbeat of media-generated attacks on Trump prove it.  Book after book.  Crazy anonymous allegations. None of this is news.

2. But they chew up the news cycle. These are pseudo events that are used to manufacture controversies and distract the public from substantive issues related to Biden.

1. Woodward’s book had fallen to #9 on amazon. So he and his publisher gave cherry picked parts to the Washington Post and Drudge to hype, knowing the rest of the media would follow.  And he’s set for a slobbering interview on 60 Minutes.

2. This is how it works.  Manipulating news and news cycle.  Attacking Trump.  Helping Biden. The Unfree Press.

All I can think about is my father and the nearly 200,000 other people who lost their lives to COVID-19 as a result of this president’s gross negligence and lies.

 I liked how the President answered the last question asked .... he went over what the administration had done during the first three months of the year .... and then said he fought hard not to panic the nation, that nothing would be gained from that.  "It's call leadership."  --- "Thank you very much everybody.  I'm sure we'll talk again later"

Once this leaked out of a Chinese lab and out of China people were going to die no matter what anyone did.

The only thing that could be done is manage the rate of spread to keep hospitals from going into triage mode and expanding the resources available to those hospitals so they could handle more people.

Testing and the rest didn't really matter that much. The cat was well out of the bag.

"Wit" and "Twit" are often confused by people like Mika trying to hard to be the 1st.
Any political party that can't cough up anything better than a treacherous brain-damaged old vulture like Joe Biden deserves every beating it gets.

As accounts accumulate of inflated deaths, of tests which yield false positives, of attributions of death to COVID which likely should have been attributed to the underlying condition(s) which may have been fatal, it looks like downplaying the disease, was indeed the correct course--especially considering the early projections of two million dead.

Only a small fraction of ICU beds here are taken up with COVID-19 patients, and there is a significant surplus of beds (about 50%), yet we have more active cases than ever. More beds were provided elsewhere, but the shortages defined by the projections of two million dead didn't happen, and the facilities went largely unused.
 
We have had plenty of insanity, from toilet paper shortages to not being able to get laundry products, all over the disease, as the panic mongers of the MSM have flogged this horse to ribbons.

Of course, without that mass panic and widespread civil unrest, the Democrats had to muster their own little army of Bolsheviks to get out and do the looting and destruction patriotic and decent Americans would not.

Well, I sure see why the media and the Dems are all wadded up. No president IN HISTORY has minimized anything to minimize panic. /s

Had Trump or the powers that be came out and said this is bad, very bad and we don't know squat...there wouldn't have been enough toilet paper in the world to clean that mess up. Oh, wait...we couldn't find tp to buy. What a mess! *bouche*
