Our worst fears have officially been confirmed by Dr. Tony Fauci this Easter Sunday. Donald Trump’s ignorance and defiance is in fact directly responsible for more Americans dying of Coronavirus than there needed to be, according to Dr. Fauci himself.
Dr. Fauci did an interview this Easter Sunday with CNN’s Jake Tapper, where he confirmed that he himself warned Donald Trump about Coronavirus, but Trump did not listen until it was too late. It all happened after Tapper asked Fauci a question about a NYT report on social distancing guidelines.
“The New York Times reported yesterday, that you and other top officials wanted to recommend social and physical distancing guidelines to President Trump, as far back as the third week of February, but the administration didn’t announce such guidelines until March 16, almost a month later. Why?” Tapper asked, which is a devastating question for Trump if answered honestly.
Thankfully that’s exactly what Dr. Fauci did, he replied with the truth. “We look at it from a pure health standpoint,” Fauci said. “We make a recommendation, often the recommendation is taken, sometimes it’s not. But it is what it is. We are where we are right now.”
Tapper then asked Dr. Fauci if the thought “lives could have been saved” if the guidelines had been enacted earlier. Fauci responded and said, “Obviously you could logically say, that if you had a process that was ongoing and you started mitigation earlier you could’ve saved lives, obviously. No one is going to deny that. You’re right.”
There you have it. We now have Dr. Fauci on camera literally saying that if Donald Trump had implemented guidelines earlier, “obviously,” less lives would have been lost. It’s time to investigate Trump over his mishandling of Coronavirus. If we have to do another impeachment, then so be it. The law is the law.
TAPPER: “You recommended social distancing guidelines in the 3rd week of February… Trump didn’t announce them until a month later. Why?”
DR. FAUCI: “It is what it is.”
TAPPER: “Would it have saved lives?”
DR. FAUCI: “OBVIOUSLY.” ???pic.twitter.com/BS7RTa6Nw5
