Fauci has a much higher IQ than Trump. Trump could never get a medical degree. I understand TRUMP HIMSELF is tired of the virus issue - but Trump can't "temper tantrum" the Virus away. Or blame anyone but his good friends in China, the ones he struck a trade deal with. Trump looks real stupid attacking Fauci - Trump will lose all the medical communities votes on that comment. All the Drs, nurses, hospital admins, scientists at pharm, those votes are gone baby, gone! Biden wins!

Fauci can go to hell. It's obvious his advice was stupid from the start. First, he lied about the general public not needing masks (don't care about why he lied). Then he recommended all the shutdowns. If politicians didn't listen to Fauci, they'd be accused of causing more deaths, so they had to go along with this brainless twit.

Fauci needs to retire. It's clear that his brain is leaving his body like Joe Biden's brain. Two cuckoo birds who should be in rocking chairs recalling the good old days when Uncle Joe took on a guy named Corn Pop at the local swimming pool, and who later had a cereal named after him.

The Chinese Communists are for Joe Biden to win. The same people who started and lied about COVID-19 are in bed with the Democrapic candidate. They want to negotiate with a senile idiot, rather than a master negotiator like Trump. Joe Biden would have been blindsided more by this virus than Trump. He thought it was racist for Trump to stop flights from China and Europe at a critical time. Trump kept the death rate far below projections. The Democratic mayors and governors were at the reins of their states, where most of the deaths occurred. They even said they weren't going to listen to a Republican president about what to do.

CNN's top legal analyst and Trump hater, Toobin, was masturbating live during a Zoom meeting with his CNN colleagues to discuss their "Hate Trump" strategy.

Apparently Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper were real excited but not so much the women.

More degeneracy from the Democrat Party.

Dr. Fauci leading the National Health Institute had the country totally unprepared for a pandemic.

Fauci is supposed to be the disease expert, yeah right, that's why Pfizer and Abbot's scientists are the ones developing a vaccine. Not that idiot.

The fuck head didn't even have an emergency supply of medical equipment for such a contingency after being in his position for 20+ years.

Don't wear a mask, wear a mask, don't wear a mask, wear a mask; he was just blowing shit out his ass like most government bureaucrats.

Fauci didn't even want to ban travel from China when the pandemic was in its early stages. Trump made that decision and he probably saved many more hundreds of thousands of American lives.

Better debate here than what I've seen in other forums.

I think health officials out of politics is a good idea that BOTH sides need to agree to.

Forget Fauci and politicians. Look at the obvious. We won a trade war against CHINA. China admitted the virus emerged 6 miles from their biggest bio-terror/chemical warfare lab. Just 6 miles. Right after the trade war was won. They planned on flying it to the USA and planting it here. But it got loose in China first.

We need to cancel all the US Govt bonds, note, and t-bills that China owns and not give them there money.

Everyone in the US Govt was unprepared. BTW- there was not a single armed jet fighter on the entire east coast the day 9/11 happened. With all the military spending and training. Not 1 bullet or rocket on a plane. WE ARE STUPID!
