    I meant to start a thread about him a week or so ago. Obviously, he's at the forefront of the public information on the virus. In the process, he's become something of a folk hero and more than something of an object of scorn.
    Dr. Fauci's face featured on doughnuts is quickly becoming a nationwide hit - CNN

    He is a man of integrity that has dedicated his life to his profession.

    He will never do it but I think he should publicly resign and continue his work in the private sector.

    I agree though it might be more effective to wait a bit and let Trump fire him. Things should come to a head by Easter, Trump's target date to forget about this social distancing crap.

    It's sad that Trumpers are so indoctrinated that they attack somebody who is doing his best to help them.

    I think the only way he would do that is if Trump devolved so extremely that Fauci thought it was categorically in America's best interest for him to do so. So far, he seems to be the only qualified expert that Trump even partially listens to, so I don't think we're close to that point yet.

    Will be interesting (or terrifying) to see what happens next week though if the data says we have to continue isolation and quarantine measures.

    Pence can do better than that. How about the 25th Amendment?

    “Crap”? In what way, or are you being sarcastic?

    “something of an object of scorn.” I haven’t picked up on that. Who’s scorning him, but then I don’t consult the idiots on the far right.

    This fraudster along with his overseas cohorts should resign if they have any dignity at all after what they have done to the western world with their outlandish claims. They also led to more passings by pushing these draconian lockdowns in places that the virus already had a foothold putting the young around the old a lot more in close settings leading to more infections of that vulnerable age group.

    Facts and science do not matter if they are in conflict with the pronouncements of the Dear Leader, keeping in mind that a month ago Trump made a statement to the effect that the novel coronavirus would soon disappear in the US. Since that pronouncement by Trump there have been over 86,000 new cases in the US. Trump referred to concern over spread of the virus as a hoax. If it wasn't obvious three years ago, it should be now that the real hoax is that Donald J. Trump is a competent leader. Every time he opens his mouth Donald Trump demonstrates that he isn't fit to lick Anthony Fauci's shoes.

    We need a new set of emojis for posts such as this. "Dislike" and "Come On Man" are almost complimentary considering the level of absolute disgust I feel when I read it.

    Fauci's been awesome....think Trump referred to him as a TV star last week. I think Deborah Birx has been fantastic too....she and Tony have been dynamite..beyond impressive

    I agree. I searched through the emojis but found nothing even close to appropriate. But then I guess something appropriate would be considered too "inappropriate."

    All of this is incorrect. Yet again.

    Perfect time to break out the "what a load of crap" emoji.
