Dr. Anthony Fauci is firing back at President Donald Trump who used the NIH doctor’s face and words in a new campaign ad without his consent. Trump has struggled with issues of consent in the past so it’s no surprise that they made the desperate move.

“In my nearly five decades of public service, I have never publicly endorsed any political candidate,” Dr. Fauci told CNN in a statement. “The comments attributed to me without my permission in the GOP campaign ad were taken out of context from a broad statement I made months ago about the efforts of federal public health officials.”

It was also revealed this weekend that Fauci’s statements were blocked by Trump’s team, preventing him from telling people the truth about the virus.

Fauci’s statement was from a Fox News interview in March 2020 in which he said that Trump was doing a good job after ignoring the virus for several months.

“We’ve never had a threat like this. The coordinated response has been…There are a number of adjectives to describe it — impressive, I think is one of them. We’re talking about all hands on deck. I, as one of many people on a team, I’m not the only person,” Fauci said then. “Since the beginning, that we even recognized what this was, I have been devoting almost full time on this. I’m down at the White House virtually every day with the task force. It’s every single day. So, I can’t imagine that under any circumstances that anybody could be doing more.”

Fauci says that he hasn’t been to the White House in months as Trump has begun using an X-Ray doctor as his new virus expert.

Trump’s ad brags about his personal experience getting COVID-19 and surviving it, claiming that because he got the virus it means he’s in a unique person to handle the struggles of the virus. It’s a kind of logic that many have mocked over the past week noting that having brain surgery doesn’t make one uniquely qualified to perform brain surgery.

Bombshell report outs Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for lying to people about COVID-19

Published

on

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis spent the majority of 2020 misleading his state on the facts around the COVID-19 crisis. A bombshell report from the South Florida Sun-Sentinel detailed the ways in which DeSantis suppressed bad news, spread "dangerous misinformation," and ignored inconvenient facts about the virus.

"The DeSantis administration’s approach to managing COVID-19 information carries costs," the report said. "It supports a climate in which people proudly disdain masks, engage in dangerous group activities that could spread the disease, and brush aside information that conflicts with their political views. With partygoers packing Florida bars and holiday travelers filling hotels and guest rooms, the state faces a few difficult months before the possible relief of vaccines."

The report revealed that Heidi Stirrup, "an ally of top Trump adviser Stephen Miller," was pressuring Justice Department staff to hand over sensitive documents and information about alleged "election fraud" and other issues that are important to Trump.

Attorney General Bill Barr told the AP on Tuesday that there was no widespread election fraud or voter fraud, as Trump has claimed for the past several weeks since losing the 2020 election. Trump alleged that Barr “hasn’t looked very hard."

Obama says some Black men are persuaded by Trump’s ‘macho’ bravado bragging about women and money

Published

In part two of the SnapChat interview with President Barack Obama, Peter Hamby asked how President Donald Trump was able to persuade so many Black men to support him over President-elect Joe Biden.

When Obama was elected he got about 95 percent of the Black vote, where Biden got about 80 percent.

"Well, look, I think men, generally, are more susceptible to public figures who act tough, sort of the stereotypical macho style," Obama said, while videos of Trump showing off his flabby muscles appeared. "I don't think Black men are immune to that any more than White or Hispanic men are. A lot of the values of pop culture are extolling wealth, power, frankly, greed, not thinking about other people because you're so ruthless you're just looking out for yourself."
