Dr. Fauci Has Not Updated Trump On Coronavirus In Over Two Months

Published

on

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the leading infectious disease expert in America, and who was a key member of the White House coronavirus task force, says he hasn’t provided a briefing to the president over the current state of the pandemic in two months.

This sort of seems like a bad idea, right? Shouldn’t our leadership be briefed on what is happening with the virus, given how bad Fauci and others like him have said this illness truly is?

Fauci conducted an interview with the Financial Times where he explained the reputation he has earned for not being someone who “sugar-coats things,” and says this character trait is probably what led to him not being included in TV interviews.

In March and April, Fauci’s appearances at the regular White House briefings turned him into a media sensation as he delivered no-nonsense updates on the spread of the disease, even as President Trump was predicting the worst was over.

But now, he says he has not seen the president at the White House since June 2 and that he has not briefed Trump in at least two months, although he is “sure” his messages are passed along.

“I have a reputation, as you probably have figured out, of speaking the truth at all times and not sugar-coating things,” he said. “And that may be one of the reasons why I haven’t been on television very much lately.”

Fauci recently stated that dropping the coronavirus restrictions too early could cause a massive spike in cases, somewhere in the ballpark of 100,000 new cases a day, a warning that didn’t please folks at the White House who are eagerly pushing to get kids back in school and all non-essential businesses running at full capacity.

He also commented on the president saying that 99 percent of coronavirus cases were “harmless.”

“I’m trying to figure out where the president got that number,” the doctor said. “What I think happened is that someone told him that the general mortality is about one percent. And he interpreted, therefore, that 99% is not a problem, when that’s obviously not the case.”

President Trump recently told Sean Hannity, “Dr. Fauci is a nice man, but he’s made a lot of mistakes.”

Clearly, there’s quite a bit of tension between these two and rightfully so. Much of what Fauci has said about the coronavirus has been inaccurate. The measures he suggested almost destroyed our economy.

That doesn’t mean the virus isn’t serious, but there’s a lot of conflicting information available out there, and it’s making it difficult for people to function in the real world. The real world does not stop because of a virus. It cannot stop. Therefore, different solutions to the problems we face need to be developed.

Fauci doesn’t seem to like that approach.

Guess we’ll have to wait and see where it goes in the future.

Tone-Deaf Portland Runs Tourism Ad After Riot Police Quit En Masse

If you’re looking for chaos, have we got the vacation spot for you!

For months on end, a never-ending series of protests-turned-riots have plagued the city of Portland, Oregon. Night after night the northwestern locale rages, as protesters march in the street, commit arson, clash with cops, and generally relish in their new role as liberal nuisances to the citizens of the city. Things have gotten so bad, in fact, that a large contingent of the city’s riot police coordinated a mass resignation from that portion of the force. That makes the timing of the city’s latest tourism push all the more asinine. Portland ran a pricy full-page Sunday ad in the New York Times promoting tourism after the Portland police riot squad quit Thursday. “Some of what you’ve heard about Portland is true. Some is not. What matters most is that we’re true to ourselves,” Travel Portland wrote in the ad that could have cost up to $250,000. “You’ve heard a lot about us lately. It’s been a while since you heard from us,” it continues. “After a year of encouraging visitors and locals to support small businesses here and from a distance, it’s time to issue an invitation to come back to Portland,” the ad states. “Two sides to the same coin that keeps landing right on its edge. Anything can happen. We like it this way.” The ad also says “new ideas are welcome” in the city, a place where “you can be yourself.” “This is the kind of place where new ideas are welcome — whether they’re creative, cutting-edge or curious at first glance. You can speak up here. You can be yourself here,” it continues. Of course, the taxpayer money used to procure this ad could have been spent on any number of the projects that would have helped secure the city from these anarchistic rabble-rousers.

Canada Bucks International Trend, Won’t Open Border as Pandemic Fades

Airline industry officials are not happy.

In America and around the world, there is much optimism.  The year-plus reign of the COVID scourge is coming to an end as vaccination and natural antibody rates climb ever higher, and businesses from coast to coast begin to ramp up their capacities. But there are still those out there who are unwilling to admit this very palpable and tangible truth, and who are throttling economic recovery in their reticence. Our northern neighbors just so happen to fit that description. Canada said on Monday it would start cautiously lifting border restrictions for fully vaccinated citizens on July 5 but made clear it would be months before U.S. and other foreign travelers could enter the country. From 11:59 p.m. EDT on July 5 (0359 GMT on July 6), those who have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine will no longer have to spend time in quarantine. The move applies to Canadians and permanent residents. “This is the first phase of our precautionary approach … at this time we are not opening up our borders any further,” said Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc. Ottawa first announced the plan on June 9. LeBlanc told reporters that Ottawa was talking to its domestic and international partners “with the goal of allowing fully vaccinated travelers to enter Canada for non-essential reasons in the months to come.” Canada’s unwillingness to capitulate to the reality of the pandemic’s end has adversely affected the airline industry, and has drawn criticism from American lawmakers who believe that more could be done by our allies to the north in the realm of reopening.
