Ever have your intuition, radar go off that someone is an asshole?

Getting that with Fauci. Hope I am 100% wrong. But anytime we all put 100% faith in what one guy thinks/says...my immediate reaction/nature tells me "get another and another opinion.".

Kick in the fact he's affiliated with MF45. And he seems like a showboat. Might be our 2020 "Brownie."

2. If it's coming from any agency ...

of the federal government, it's suspect, and can not be assumed to be factual. I don't care who it is.

5. Worked on govt contracts. The only censorship I saw

was pronouncements from Bush to not discuss X, Y, or Z. The people themselves are great. Smart, kind and dilligent. But they HAVE to follow orders ( like military).

I can only imagine what it's like with Dipshit in charge.

4. My sense is that Fauci is a good person.

I believe he thinks he is more useful public, as a whole, if he can stay in his position. So he is choosing to make very few corrections of what Trump is saying. But I think he has seriously misjudged how much faith Americans have in him - and becasue of this the harm his failure to publicly contradict Trump is doing to the country.

Unlike too many Americans who have the memeory of a gnat and NEVER learn, even from their own mistakes that have harmed them.

8. There's a book.....



About the Aids epidemic, written by Randy Schiltz, before died.

There's quite a bit about the politicizing and turf wars that went on
During that time.
Fauci does not come off well, in my memory of reading it 40 some years
ago.

Book is AND THE BAND PLAYED ON.

It was later made into a movie which did not do it full justice.

12. I have the same sense...

 

But, he seems to be to very knowledgeable, passionate about his field, and has few equals. He also seems to be someone who doesnt care about the politics and rather serves the American people, not the politicans.i also dont think he'd sugar coat anything he tells the the president. He's supposedly a straight shooter. I'm a fan

18. Yeah, I get that from certain OPs and social media posts and whatnot.

Fauci has been "affiliated" with every president since Reagan. Of course he's "affiliated" with MF45 -- he's director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
