Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, the Democrats and their allies in the media continue to push the hoax that President Trump did not listen to public health experts and failed to take early action against the coronavirus. dr fauci media
Dr. Anthony Fauci just made it clear that this false narrative is entirely fake news. According to Dr. Fauci, the very first time he and Dr. Deborah Birx made a formal recommendation to President Trump to take action, he took it. There was zero delay:
“Discussions [about strong mitigation tactics] were going on mostly among the medical people about what that would mean. The FIRST and ONLY time that Dr. Birx and I went in and formally made a recommendation to the President to actually have a quote ‘shutdown’ … the President listened to the recommendation and went to the mitigation.”

“The next, second time that I went with Dr. Birx in to [see] the President and said 15 days are not enough, we need to go 30 days,” Dr. Fauci continued, “the President went with the health recommendations and we extended it another 30 days.”
“The first and only time that I went in and said we should do mitigation strongly, the response was yes, we’ll do it,” Dr. Fauci reiterated. dr fauci media
In three minutes, Dr. Fauci blew up a fake news narrative, prompting CNN to become unglued with a series of laughably stupid chyrons.

No wonder the media is refusing to air these briefings – they’ve got to stop their viewers from knowing the facts and keep the fake news flowing.
