    Fauci is a fraud who loves fame. He’s on team “swamp”. Again President Trump was correct on this guy

    Fauci is a lying hypocrite who changed his comments depending on which way the wind was blowing.

    Why would anybody care to listen to this clown? “Flatten the curve, don’t wear masks, wear masks…”

    Surely we have somebody who is more up to date on medical advancements than someone who graduated from medical school over 50 years ago! Somebody who can give sound, pre-symptom advice, other than wearing a diaper on your face, to prevent getting the flu in the first place! But, no, we need people to die so we can create a hysteria and steal an election, and force a DNA-modifying vaccine.

    And I wonder how much this is costing us? For all of the chaos this guy has created, he should be paying us!

    Maybe he will advocate supplementing vitamin D and good nutrition over vaccines? Hank Aaron got his and now is dead.
