1/ Must-watch video. In a February 29 interview with NBC's Today show, Dr Fauchi said Americans did not have to change their lives by avoiding public gatherings like malls and movie theaters. He thought the virus would be contained in the US.…
2/ So like @realDonaldTrump, who is not a doctor or an infectious disease expert, Fauchi in late Feb did not foresee how serious the coronavirus crisis would become in the US. Leaders in most Western states -- maybe all of them -- also did not predict this.
3/ Let's add the lies and deception about the virus from China that were parroted by the WHO. A problem presidents have in dealing with potential crises is that there are constant warnings from experts that dont pan out. Was it reasonable to believe in Jan that this virus . . .
4/ . . . would be similar to SARS, MERS or Swine Flu? That is, a serious threat but not on the scale of the current coronavirus? Based on our experience and disagreement among experts, I think it was. Its time for the mainstream media to stop arguing that . . .
5/ . . . @realDonaldTrump should have foreseen this crisis that many experts & almost all foreign leaders did not see. On balance, Trump's handled the crisis well. The Monday morning quarterbacking by the Trump-hating media is to defeat him in November, not objective journalism.
6/ One more thing, I dont want see @realDonaldTrump fire Dr Fauchi. The president needs senior advisers who will tell him what he does not want to hear. Instead, Fauchi has to stop doing interviews with #fakenews media. Why did he agree to go on Al Sharpton's show? @maggieNYT
7/ More more thing. Fauchi said on 1/21: “This is not a major threat for the people in United States, & this is NOT something the citizens of the United States right now should be worried about.” So who was @realDonaldTrump supposed to believe at the time?
