    That pic brings back memories LOL. I was standing outside Home Depot and saw a hot young lady walking across the parking lot in a white mini skirt with a young man. The closer they got the more I realized she was not a young hottie but an old lady. They went in the entry and the young man immediately came back out. He walked up to me with an attitude and said, "You had better stop eyeballing my moma". I answered "Then tell your mama to quit dressing like a Ho!!!" LOL I thought a fight was going to break out.

    Seems like T has tired of hearing what he doesn't want to hear. Expect Fauci to be gone sooner rather than later and replaced with an unqualified yes man/woman

    Trump Lashes Out at Fauci Amid Criticism of Slow Virus Response

    WASHINGTON — President Trump publicly signaled his frustration on Sunday with Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the federal government’s top infectious disease expert, after the doctor said more lives could have been saved from the coronavirus if the country had been shut down earlier.

    Mr. Trump reposted a Twitter message that said “Time to #FireFauci” as he rejected criticism of his slow initial response to the pandemic that has now killed more than 22,000 people in the United States. The president privately has been irritated at times with Dr. Fauci, but the Twitter post was the most explicit he has been in letting that show publicly.
    …………………..……………………………..
    The tweet came amid a flurry of messages blasted out by the president on Sunday defending his handling of the coronavirus, which has come under sharp criticism, and pointing the finger instead at China, the World Health Organization, President Barack Obama, the nation’s governors, Congress, Democrats generally and the news media.

    Mr. Trump did not “ban China,” but he did block foreign nationals who had been in China in the past 14 days from coming into the United States starting on Feb. 2. Despite the policy, 40,000 Americans and other authorized travelers have still come into the country from China since then.

    Narcissist cannot stand Fauci being more trusted than him. I am really surprised he has lasted this long

    I'm fine with firing Fauci...so long as we can also fire Trump.

    My guess is he read the tweet and not the hashtag. I usually skip over the hashtags unless it’s a very edgy one where I might be worried it’s from some extremest group.

    Just a guess.

    Yes, that’s how he crowdsources what he wants to do. Twitter. Then he waits to hear what the Fox echo chamber says in response, sort of like when he would ask people what to do at Mar-A-Lago.

    And maybe the poster who found the OP off-topic (@uf1978) can explain their rating because I have a hard time understanding how the first post in a thread can be off-topic, as it IS the topic.

    All he could have done was refuse to answer the question.

    Dr. Fauci has played a very difficult role throughout this pandemic. In order to be allowed to provide the country with science-based information as to how best to deal with the pandemic he has had to hold his tongue as Trump has spewed idiotic and contradictory "information" during his daily news conferences.

    The only reason he hasn't fired Dr. Fauci is that he knows the doctor cares enough about trying to protect the public he will not publicly and directly confront Trump when Trump spews falsehoods so long as he is given a chance to get the most important information to the public.

    If Fauci is pushed out of the tent, Trump knows the muzzle is off and Fauci would be a public relations thorn in his side by publicly refuting much more of what Trump says, publicly relating what advice Trump was given early on that he refused to follow, etc.

    The flattering New Yorker article was the killer. Trump can't stand anyone getting more accolades than him, which is practically everyone.
