Fauci Changes Tune On Shutdown, Once Called Them “Inconvenient,” Now Says They’ll Cause “Irreparable Damage”

(Liberty Bell) – Dr. Anthony Fauci of the NIH, who has received widespread scrutiny for his apparent flip-flops on the severity of the novel coronavirus, seems to have also had a change of heart about the necessity of widespread lockdown measures which are currently devastating the US’ economy.

On Friday, the White House Coronavirus Task Force member quite bluntly admitted that the lockdown measures that he strongly advocated for and once claimed were simply “inconvenient” for could cause “irreparable damage” to our country.

“We can’t stay locked down for such a considerable period of time that you might do irreparable damage and have unintended consequences, including consequences for health,” he told CNBC on Friday morning, according to Just the News.

“I don’t want people to think that any of us feel that staying locked down for a prolonged period of time is the way to go,” he added.

This marks a very marked change from his stance in late March, when he minimized the severity of the shutdowns.

“This is tough. People are suffering. People are dying. It’s inconvenient from a societal standpoint, from an economic standpoint to go through this, but this is going to be the answer to our problems,” Fauci said on March 31 during a White House press conference.

Thankfully, on Thursday, President Donald Trump stated that, were there to be a second wave of the virus in the United States, the response would be different.

Fox News reported:

President Trump acknowledged Thursday that there could be a second wave of the coronavirus epidemic later this year, but flatly stated he wouldn’t let any further outbreaks shutter the economy again.

“People say that’s a very distinct possibility,” Trump said when asked a possible second wave while in Michigan. “It’s standard. And, we’re going put out the fires. We’re not going to close the country.”

Trump’s comments came as he was touring a Ford Motor Co. plant outside of Detroit that has converted its automobile manufacturing facility into one making ventilators. During a speech at the plant, the president praised Ford workers for their efforts to produce thousands of ventilators during the pandemic.

“The global pandemic proves once and for all that for America to be a strong nation, America needs to be a manufacturing nation,” Trump said. “I’m fighting to bring back our jobs from China and many other countries.”


  1. This is the same clown that said back in the 80,s that half of the people in the US would die of aids !!! Guess what that didn’t happen either I think he doesn’t know anything just a lot of talk with nothing to back it up !!! I don’t trust a man that talks out of both sides of his face

    • Mouse, the word is integrity which you have none of not do you have any intelligence beyond a mouse.

  2. I’ve long been a sceptic of Fauci. Too much time currying favor with Demorats. Too quick to believe bad Models without ever stepping back to think if they made any sense.

    Time for Fauci to quit.

  3. fauci is a snake in the grass and should be kick out the white house. he’s working with bill gates, george soros, bloomberg the clintons, bath house barry, the who and they’re all working with china. they have an agendait’s to bring this country down and take our rights and freedoms away and keep us locked up until they make a vaccine and then they want every man, woman,and child vaccinated and a micro chip put in our arms so that they can keep track of our every move and to control the population. these vaccines will be untested and according to bill gates many people will die but that’s acceptable. thesse vaccines are made from poisons and aborted baby fetal tissue which is the lung tissue that’s used because it last forever. well i for one will never be vaccinated. bill gates and friends can go vaccinate themselves and their families.

  4. He was working with china, the demonrats, george soros, bill gates and the WHO. He is change his stand now so he can blame it all on Trump!

  5. I feel the damage has already and is still being done, not only to our economy, but even worse all the Demoncrat Governors and Local Officials taking it upon themselves to Dictate to Constituents What They Can Not Do !!! This is still America “Land Of The Free”, Not a Socialistic Dictatorship !!!!
    Wake Up America and be Very, Very, Very careful for what and for who you vote for !!! Voting across party lines is viable in today’s Anti-American Political Environment !!!! Our Freedoms, Our Constitution and Our America is in the Coming Elections !!!! Ask specific questions about future elected city, state and federal level candidates as to where they stand on issues that concern Americas future !! I agree there are candidates on both sides of the isle Demoncrats and Republican RINO’s (Republicans In name Only) who Must be Challenged !!

  6. Fauci and his scientific team are in cahoots with the Swamp people and want to keep we the people in lockdown and instill fear in us so we will stay imprisoned in our own homes and not show up at the polls come November 3rd. But, we the people will be swarming the polls, booths kept 6ft apart, because the workers know all about safety, to vote for our President! We’re not stupid nor are we deplorables, we know who the Greatest Leader of this Great Nation is, Donald J. Trump. He Loves His Country and works relentlessly for the citizens he serves. The best is yet to come! Four more years of the Greatest Leadership this Country has ever known or seen. So look out y’all on of other side of the isle because here we come! So wake up America and get your head out of the sand. Our future depends on you!

  7. Perhaps Dr. Fauci should find a new country to live in. There’s plenty of angry people in this one. Admitting he’s screwed up (on several instances) may save him from tar and feathers.

  8. Well, I never fully trusted the Medical and Pharmaceuticals Corporations. I advocate taking care of your immune system, overall health, wash your hands with only soap and water to kill the bad bacteria and viruses but not your healthy bacteria that you need to fight the bad. I lot of dis-information, propaganda and outright lies in this current Plandemic Documentary with a Hidden Agenda. Many people in the world are still living and unhealthy lifestyle with smoking and exhaling all types of pollution, drugs, and alcohol. They are not helping themselves or their neighbors.

  9. Fauci’s only focus was Covid-19. As a doctor he could no longer ignore big time damage being done by draconian shut down for risk less than 1%. So many died on the battle field to preserve our FREEDOM. Happy Memorial Day!

  10. The last time I had the singular displeasure of listening to someone as wishy-washy and inconsistent as Dr. Fauci was when George McGovern ran against President Nixon in 1972, when McGovern LOST in a landslide! As I recall, McGovern carried ONE State (Massachusetts) and DC! Nixon prevailed in all the rest, even in McGovern’s home State of South Dakota! How embarrassing that must have been!

  11. We never should have done this lockdown. Damaged too many small businesses. This is worse then the Spanish Flu. In this case the cure was worse then the disease.

    • This lock down that quarantined the healthy and sick alike will go down in history as the biggest blunder ever. The Hong Kong Flu of 1968-68 was more lethal than covid-19, but we didn’t destroy the country over it. Trump was sucker punched by Fauci whose flattened curve did nothing more than flatten the economy with a coronavirus that’s 10% virus and 90% media hype. It was all orchestrated by the New World Order to bring us into compliance for world government and rule of law implemented by the United Nations.


  13. Fauci is finally buckling under the mobster Trump’s bullying tactics. Fauci is a famed doctor who is one of the leading epidemiologists in the world and the crap and disrespect the ignorant thug Trump has showered on him is worse than despicable.

    • Keep trying stupid. You liberals blame Trump for everything, and can’t support your assertions with anything akin to fact. Fauci has been wrong in HIS assertions since Day 1. He’s changed his message more than an incontinent person changes their drawers,.

    • Say what you want about President Trump, I would take his skills and knowledge over Hil liar y any day of the week. Thank God she is not President! As for Fauci, I believe he is overly cautious, and does not care about the damage caused by the shutdown.

      If we can just vote out Pelosi the wicked witch, and pencil neck Schiff (one of the biggest liars of all time), we will have a start to a great recovery from this virus, and hopefully continue to bring back a more conservative Congress. Too many in Congress have this “do as I say, not as I do” attitude.

    • Grow up little boy this conversation is for men and women who have some intreigy and know what is real and what is fake and the good doctor is a fraud he knows nothing about the real world so come back when you grow up and take part in the conversation but until then SHUT THE HELL UP!!!!

  14. Well maybe finally a clear head on this virus which is little more than a type of the flu which we have every year. Yes! the corona virus is dangerous and people die from it, but more people die because of the crazy high speed drivers. they do not stop driving on our streets and highways. Neither should we over react with this corona virus.Yes! Every one should be careful, but shutting down the country is a bit much.

    • People in the red states aren’t following the guidelines and they will be lucky not to have huge outbreaks in those redneck areas. Look at the pool parties, beaches, streets in Daytona, etc.
