2016 Dr Fauci; There is going to be a pandemic during the Trump administration.
Dr Fauci is a son of a bitch and he is a liar. Anyone who believes this quack is sick. Can't you see what they are doing? How did Fauci know that pandemic was coming. Wake up people. There is a virus but think about how it happened and why it happened.

I wonder where Dr. Fauci thinks the federal government has authority to mandate that American citizens and residents wear masks or buy health insurance or cabbage. After a lifetime of working behind the scenes, suddenly he's a celebrity, and with that status comes a visceral need to tell everybody what he thinks.

Why didn't the "medical expert" Dr. Fauci and his National Health Institute and CDC did not have the country medically prepared for a pandemic?

Fauci is a joke and a government bureaucrat.

The guy hasn't practiced medicine in 50 fucking years but instead sits behind a desk whacking off like most government bureaucrats.

Several friends regret voting early as they learned of Hunter and Joe Biden and accepting Russian money while having no job skill sets.

They were not allowed to get their ballot back- so they are encouraging others to vote against the Russian-Bidens and assume the Russians paid off the American Press media.

Millions have been raised thanks to the Hunter Biden anti-American activities.

If Biden is elected - look for articles of Impeachment on Day 2. Hunter should be in jail as well as Joe unless Harris pardons both Biden.

America should NEVER accept the Biden Presidency and the Military never will.

Sadly the military is politicized.

It's going to be up to the citizens of America to save our country just like the American citizens of 1776.
