Burn: Trump Owns Anthony Fauci And His Infamously Bad Predictions
(Tea Party 247) – It’s amazing that for months, the Democrats and the media propped Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes for Health as some sort of resistance hero despite his utter lack of display of any consistency or authority on the issue of the coronavirus pandemic.
Dr. Fauci has flip-flopped on everything from masks to school closures to re-opening the economy, but he was once the voice of widespread shutdowns and so, the left adored him.
He is “the expert” they constantly claim that Trump “refused” to listen to, only he has completely undermined his own expertise and the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic has been far more effective than the Democrats will ever admit.
Trump himself is not unaware of Dr. Fauci’s many failings as a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, and recently nailed him on Twitter.
Pointing to the famously terrible job that Fauci did throwing the first pitch at one of the first post-lockdown baseball games, Trump quipped that he was better with a baseball than predicting the trajectory of the pandemic on Tuesday, Newswars reports.
The president was responding to an interview Dr. Fauci gave in which he’d accused President Donald Trump of having taken his words out of context for a campaign ad.
Actually, Tony’s pitching arm is far more accurate than his prognostications. “No problem, no masks”. WHO no longer likes Lockdowns – just came out against. Trump was right. We saved 2,000,000 USA lives!!! https://t.co/YyLyCsbZ7a

“Actually, Tony’s pitching arm is far more accurate than his prognostications,” Trump wrote in the tweet.
Who can forget this terrible pitch on Fauci’s part?

“‘No problem, no masks’. WHO no longer likes Lockdowns – just came out against. Trump was right. We saved 2,000,000 USA lives!!!” the president continued.
The ad had asserted that the US is recovering in the same way that the president himself has done following his hospitalization for COVID earlier this month.
Dr. Fauci had told CNN on Sunday that he disagreed with the way the campaign had used his words.
“In my nearly five decades of public service, I have never publicly endorsed any political candidate. The comments attributed to me without my permission in the GOP campaign ad were taken out of context from a broad statement I made months ago about the efforts of federal public health officials,” CNN quoted Fauci as saying.
When Trump wrote “No problem, no masks” in his tweet, he was referring to a 60 Minutes interview he’d given in March in which he’d declared, “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.”
“Right now, in the United States, people should not be walking around with masks,” he had said at the time.
“You’re sure? Because people are listening really closely to this,” the interviewer clarified.
“No, there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask,” Fauci replied.
