In his inauguration speech, President Biden pledged to “defend the truth and defeat the lies.”
So let’s start with the brutal honesty of Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has been the source of some of the most devastating misinformation about COVID-19.
At least, the top infectious disease expert and chief medical consultant in Biden, the United States, knows nothing about the facts and is easy to change his mind.
This is the person who decides the coronavirus policy in the Trump administration. As the Biden administration said, if you make a mistake, it is Fauci’s mistake.
However, surprisingly, Fauci told CNN on Friday that the Trump administration’s “lack of frankness” had sacrificed American lives.
But if people’s lives were indeed threatened last year, why did he wait to tell us now?
Use the usual fiber to powder it into another convenient fiber, which deceives us from masks to herd immunity.
Even if you think that these are not lies but Fauci̵
Take Fauci’s calm on January 21 last year as an example, when he assured us that the virus spreading in China at the time was “not something American citizens should worry about.”
To be fair, the pandemic keeps many people unaware, but the thing about Fauci is that he is always certain of himself.
In the following week, he attended the meeting again and strongly opposed the ban on flying from China proposed by Donald Trump, when Biden banned it as “xenophobic.”
On January 28, Trump asked his trade adviser, Peter Navarro, to enter the situation room to convince Fauci and other officials that China’s travel ban would save lives.
“The person I fought the most that day was Fauci,” Navarro told me on Sunday. “He is firmly opposed to the travel ban. What he keeps saying is that travel restrictions don’t work.”
Navarro stepped back and said: “‘If you prevent 20,000 Chinese citizens from entering the country every day, and some of them have been infected, are you telling me that this will not spread the virus?’ It’s like chatting on a brick wall same.”
The next day, Navarro wrote a memo outlining three options: if you do nothing and there is no danger, that’s okay; if you enforce the travel ban and there is no danger, you will lose millions US dollars; however, if you do nothing and are in danger, then the risk is the lives of a million Americans and the loss of more than 2 trillion dollars.
“I wrote a memo to everyone in the memo and… Navarro said: “This makes everyone support the president. ”
Trump imposed a travel ban on January 31, and Fauci later attributed this action to saving lives.
However, Navarro said: “If Biden is president and Fauci is the top adviser, then we might lose another million lives.”
Then there is Fauci’s suggestion about masks.
Back in March, when the coronavirus was destroying New York, he told us that masks were useless.
He told “60 Minutes”, “At present in the United States, people should not walk around wearing masks.”
Three months later, he did a backflip: “Mask work… Prevent you from infecting others… Moreover, it can protect you to a certain extent.”
In June last year, while posing by his swimming pool wearing sunglasses and novel socks, Fauci told InStyle magazine that he did not regret lying:
“We are told… we are facing a serious problem, namely the lack of personal protective equipment and masks from health care providers [and decided] We do need to save masks for those who need it most. ”
It was a noble lie, so he didn’t feel the need to apologize or even feel ashamed.
But at the height of the pandemic, nothing can trust medical experts more than the public.
If Fauci lied to the mask, would he still lie?
It turned out that he also lied about herd immunity.
In December last year, Fauci admitted to the New York Times that he had “slowly and deliberately shifted the target position” to the percentage of the population who needed to be vaccinated before reaching the “herd immunity” against COVID-19.
“When opinion polls show that only about half of Americans will be vaccinated, I mean that herd immunity will account for 70% to 75%. Then, when newer surveys say that 60% or higher will be accepted Thought, “I can improve a little bit, so I got 80, 85,” he said.
Fauci’s numbers are not precise, which is strange to a scientist who claims to care about facts.
For example, on the first day of Biden last week, Fauci said that we will vaccinate 100 million people in the “first 100 days” and designated him to mean “primary and booster” injections for a total of 200 million shots.
On Sunday, he was forced to “clarify this because of some misunderstandings. We are talking about 100 million personal photos.”
Because we are already there, the 100 million goal is still false. According to a Bloomberg News follower, 912,000 injections were administered every day during the week before the inauguration. On the day of the inauguration, 1.6 million photos were taken.
How liberated Fauci was to work for Biden last week. “One of the new things in this administration is: if you don’t know the answer, please don’t guess. It’s just that you don’t know the answer.”
This suits Fauci, because for experts, he never seems to know any answers.
Cuo’s “cocky” cylinder
Governor Andrew Cuomo boasted of favorites on Friday.
He said: “Never feel arrogant about COVID.”
“Popular words have never been said. I will be proud of that sentence.”
Perhaps he wrote his own advice before accepting the Emmy Award and wrote a book congratulating himself for his worst response to the COVID in the United States.
In any sense, this is what you call arrogance.
