next month. Triple masks!

A year with the virus and these f**king geniuses just now telling us how to protect oneself (instead of others) by double masking. I bet some of those that have died would've appreciated that information a little earlier on.

We are so advanced in so many areas except common sense and common purpose. This virus is kool aid compared to what could be, in that case we would all be dead before we could fiddle f**k about prevention. Dalton

It is clever that you captioned a pic of St Fauchi with a line about double masking a dummy.

The only policies fake impostor Joe Biden is changing is Trumps job deals and the killing of innocent babies. Fake Joe and his black slave owner are putting everyone out of work, putting us at the mercy or other countries, and killing babies. They love to kill.

Impeach Obama for killing american citizens with drones without a trial. Impeach Biden for complicity. It doesn't matter that Obama is not president...the Democrats have established the precedent.

"CDC outfitted dummies with double masks"

Yes we've all seen Dr. Fauci modeling.

Anonymous said...

I don't wear one and I'm sure as hell not wearing two. Fuck you Fauci!

Anonymous said...

Tony nailed it with Fauci posing as the mask dummy. Dr. Fauci is an idiot.

Because of his lack of preparedness the country did not have a strategic supply of masks, hospital gowns, ventilators etc. to combat a pandemic.

Trump bailed out Fauci and then Trump had to take the blame from the Marxist media for Fauci's incompetence.

All the dumb fuck Fauci wants to do is interview with the Marxist Media. He changes his story every month and the media laps it up. First he said two week shutdown; then a one month shut down, then a two month shutdown; now next Fall and the curve will be flattened. He is just throwing shit out there as he doesn't have a clue.

Fauci said no masks, then one mask, then he said two masks would be detrimental, now he says two masks are what should be worn.

Next Fauci will insist on burkas and turbans like the camel fuckers wear.

The Senate Republicans may let Trump escape the consequences of fomenting an insurrection, but his only legacy will be that of being the only President who was inpeached twice, and the only President who was inpeached by a Bipartisan Vote.

I spoke today with President Xi to offer good wishes to the Chinese people for Lunar New Year. I also shared concerns about Beijing’s economic practices, human rights abuses, and coercion of Taiwan. I told him I will work with China when it benefits the American people.
