Fauci is absolutely right about failure to act early.

South Korea and US had their first case on the same day, January 21st. South Korea acted aggressively. Trump did not. The results?

South Korea cases 10,500+
US cases 554,000+

South Korea deaths 214
US deaths 22,000+

Trump's failure has led to ten of thousands needlessly dying.

Trump had his shot. He completely botched it, plain and simple. This kind of garbage would effectively end any other administrations re-election changes but hey, weirdos gonna weirdo.

It's kind of crazy to think that ANY CEO would be summarily run by the board of directors of a company but we can't possibly hold our President to that high of a standard. Gross incompetence or negligence, period.
