Dr. Anthony Fauci just revealed an insider bombshell. The mainstream media is completely stunned by this revelation — they don’t want to believe it.
“No, I didn’t,” said Fauci in response to a question about whether he thought President Donald Trump tried to downplay the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic. “I didn’t get any sense that he was distorting anything.”
“I mean in my discussions with him, they were always straightforward about the concerns that we had,” Fauci continued. “We related that to him. And when he would go out, I’d hear him discussing the same sort of things.”
There is currently a media frenzy over Trump’s alleged comments as recorded by investigative journalist Bob Woodward. His book, Rage, transcribes audio in which Trump said, “I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create a panic.”
But you have to wonder — if Woodward thought the audio was so damning — that he released it to the Washington Post just now, right before his book comes out. This appears to be a classic case of political gamesmanship on Woodward’s part.
Even Trump himself called into question Woodward’s timing. Furthermore, Trump wasn’t saying he wanted to cover anything up — only that he didn’t want to blow this out of proportion. That is reasonable. That is leadership. That is the president.
