Fauci shoves back against media critics trying to dump on Trump for reopening country ‘too soon’ after COVID-19 outbreak

The 'mainstream' media's blatant Left-wing partisanship is getting dangerous

By Tank Murdoch @TheNatSent

(TNS) After President Donald Trump signaled on Tuesday he was ready to reconsider keeping the country shut down over coronavirus after his 15-day recommendations, the Leftist media went nuts.


The president did not say what he would or would not do, mind you, only that, given the massive multi-trillion dollar hit our economy has taken due to the tanking of the stock market and the loss of millions of jobs virtually overnight, he would ‘reconsider’ the situation at the end of March and ensure that the “cure” isn’t worse than the disease.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s chief infectious diseases expert, was once again caught in the middle by media jackals who couldn’t care less about the reality of what’s happening to millions of people versus the reality of a virus that is proving not to be the world-ending killer they have made it out to be.

But he pushed back on the media’s latest anti-Trump coronavirus narrative in an interview on WMAL’s “Mornings on the Mall” with Mary Walter and Vince Coglianese.

“Obviously, this is something that’s under very intense discussion,” Fauci said when asked about the 15 day social isolation idea pushed by Trump.

What the president is trying to do is to balance the public health issues with the fact that this is having an enormous impact on the economy, which may actually of the country – indirectly – even cause a considerable amount of harm and difficult even health wise,” he said.

That’s right; people with little money who have lost health insurance have less ability to stay healthy.

“So, it’s a delicate balancing act, which the president is trying to get it right, and we’re under very intense discussions right now about what the most appropriate timeline is and if we do modify it, how we modify it,” Fauci said.

Fauci’s Tuesday comments came after the president told reporters the day before that “our country wasn’t built to be shut down.” The president added that “America will again and soon be open for business” and reiterated his belief that the “cure” – social distancing – can’t be worse than the disease.

Politico reported that “Trump pushed back against health experts” after his Monday evening comments about ending strict social distancing guidelines. The article stated that many of Trump’s own health experts “have warned that it will be a matter of months before it will be safe to reopen the country again.”

“He even claimed, without evidence, that the economic downturn caused by continuing the social distancing recommendation could result in more deaths ‘than anything we are talking about with respect to the virus,’” Politico wrote.

‘Without evidence?’ Really? Maybe it’s Politico’s reporters who generally make statements ‘without evidence.’

Fauci noted in an interview with Science Magazine published March 22: “There is a discussion and a delicate balance about what’s the overall impact of shutting everything down completely for an indefinite period of time.

So, there’s a compromise. If you knock down the economy completely and disrupt infrastructure, you may be causing health issues, unintended consequences, for people who need to be able to get to places and can’t. You do the best you can,” he said.

The ‘mainstream’ media in America truly is a force for harm. They don’t inform, they don’t enlighten, they don’t add value to discourse or the conversation;  they attack those they disagree with politically and culturally, as if that was the founders’ true purpose behind the creation of a free press.

It’s pathetic, to be sure, but it’s also dangerous.

Is this shittin’ virus deadly ?

Turn the country loose again.
We’ll deal with this crap on the fly.
This whole corona thing has smelled rotten from the get go.
We’ve been led to believe it’s like the Black Plague from medeival Europe.

It is obvious that this shut down the country was and is the lefts plan to ruin the economy to make Trump less attractive as the president. They do not want Sanders and threw him to the dogs already, but they can not handle that they do not control Donald Trump and will do anything to get rid of him. Biden has lost touch with reality and Hillary is bound to be his running mate. once they cheat in the ballot box and try to steal the election, Hillary will not have to kill sleepy Joe she will be pulling… Read more »

7 million deaths from starvation in the great depression. 121 million was US population. 330 million now. Looking at 20 million, this number is not including s suicides, medical deaths, crime, etc. Arguably WWII caused by desperation allowing leaders like Hitler to rise in power. Another 80 million dead worldwide. Adjusted for world population, 2.2 trillion versus 8+trillion your looking at 3+billion dead. “Unproven effects” of destruction of the economy. These people are idiots. More Dreamworld BS that pushed the falsehood that Trump only cares about big business.
