Dr. Fauci Calls Out The Media For Their Shamless Spin During Such Serious Times

(Liberty Bell) – National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci is calling on the shameless media to stop “pitting” him against President Donald Trump as the two men work side-by-side to battle one of the worst pandemics our nation has seen in decades.

Dr. Fauci was asked about this division the media is trying to cause by The Mall Podcast, hosted by Vince Coglianese, on Tuesday.

“That is really unfortunate. I would wish that would stop because we have a much bigger problem here than trying to point out differences,” Dr. Fauci said. “There really, fundamentally at the core … are not differences.”

Listen here.

Fauci went on to say that the president is receptive to the opinions of other experts on the White House coronavirus.

“The president has listened to what I have said and what the other people on the task force have said,” Fauci said. “When I have made recommendations he has taken them. The idea of just pitting one against the other is just not helpful.”

On Tuesday morning, Trump also did his part to clarify that there’s no division between them in a tweet.

Over the weekend, Fauci joined Fox News’ Mark Levin where he also spoke favorably of the president.

“He asks a lot of questions. That’s his nature. He’s constantly asking questions,” Dr. Fauci said. “And I never, in the multiple times I’ve done that, where I said, ‘For scientific reasons we really should do this,’ that he hasn’t said, ‘Let’s do it.’”

Trump responded to clips of the interview by saying, “Thank you Tony!”

Also on Sunday, Dr. Fauci joined CBS’ “Face the Nation” where he spoke against the efforts to “separate the two of us”.

In an appearance Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Fauci again spoke again of the efforts on the part of the media to “separate the two of us” when asked a loaded question about existing drugs currently being used to combat the virus.

“The President was trying to bring hope to the people,” he explained. “I think there’s this issue of [the media] trying to separate the two of us. There isn’t fundamentally a difference there.”

On Monday, the New York Times reported that President Trump’s patience with Fauci had “started to wear thin.”

During Monday’s briefing, reporters tried over and over to get the president’s team of experts to contradict him.

Of Fauci, who wasn’t present, Trump said, “He’s a good man. I like Dr. Fauci. He isn’t here because we’re not discussing what he’s best at.”

When a reporter tried to pit US State Department health official Deborah Birx against Trump by asking if she was “okay” with reopening the economy after Trump, who was standing directly next to her, had said some of the doctors he’s spoken with are okay with it.

Birx refused to play ball.

“What the president has asked us to do is to assemble all the data and give him our best medical recommendation based on all the data,” she replied. “That’s what he has asked us to do and so that’s what we’ll do.”

  1. Very well said by OleDad, I also thank God that Trump is in charge, the right person for the job. I truly hope that the public sees thru the MSM lunacy with the constant gotcha questions and their attempts to make Trump look like a buffoon .I guess we truly won’t know to Election Day.

  2. Given the rancor between the Democrat and Republican parties, it seems we need a volunteer to calm all the hurt feelings. Given that Rand Paul is now home and he can’t vote, maybe he could visit Nancy at home and give her a big kiss to prove there are no hard feelings.

  3. The media is joined with the democrats. Look at the links among the media leaders and members of the past Obama administration and other democrat government officials.

  4. I agree with all of the comments here, but it is much worse than we can see, because there is a direct attempt to have the liberals take over our Country forever!! If those corrupt democrats and others in our government are not prosecuted to the full extent of the law for treason, then our great Country is headed down hill to the dump. Never thought I would see such an attempt in my lifetime, even knowing that there has been a “deep state” for a long time, probably since WWII. The Chinese are in full mode to try and takeover the position of being the worlds reserve currency , plus hold all the cards for world dominance.

  5. I half the time can almost see the media’s nose growing longer. A person does not know what to believe as there is so much untruth going on. It is like they are trying to pit one person against another. Freedom of the press does not include telling lies or putting one person against the other. That is just wrong.

  6. If nothing else, and clearly we have been enriched much more than that already, but if we learn nothing else from this Administration, we have learned how utterly and completely devoid of integrity our media is, and continues to be. Horrible revelation, but true.

  7. There’s a new day coming. Fake news media idiots, will pay dearly for “Making” the news, not reporting the news. Honesty and credibility in the media and Demoncraps, is long DEAD?

  8. Except for Fox, all news outlets are working for China, Clinton’s, Obama’s!! They’re more dangerous than any pandemic! Trump 2020!

    • Because they are the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party. “Never let a crisis go to waste.” If the American people are afraid enough, they’ll vote for change. That’s the goal of Democrats. Delay aid (or get their Death Cult provisions in the COVID bill) so that the nation is worse off. If Trump acts, say he’s wrong. If Trump casts hope, say he’s naive. If he acts to quell the spread, say he’s a Nazi. If he cooperates with Democrats to get help for the American people, say he “had to do what was right.” Whatever angle, whatever story line — today, this hour — the media can use to denigrate Trump, they’ll use — doesn’t matter if it’s a lie, a distortion, or complete fake news. Trump is right, the MSM is co-conspirators with the Marxist Left. Even if the American people wake up and see the talking heads as the liars they are, it feeds the DNC agenda because it undermines the credibility of the Trump administration and the confidence in our leaders. It is exactly what Russian agents were accused of doing in the Russian hoax theory.
      I thank God every day Trump is in charge. I scratch my head every day at the ignorance, the dishonesty, and outright terrorism against the American people I see in Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.

  9. Typical media more of the same lies and more lies to trash America and it’s people. Stop supporting the morons that broadcast BS and lies. 😡
