Fauci: ‘Bizarre’ White House Behavior Only Hurts the President

Peter Nicholas and Ed Yong, The Atlantic:

Anthony Fauci isn’t about to quit, despite the White House’s clumsy attempts to stain his public image. More so now than at any other point in their uneasy partnership, it seems that if President Donald Trump wants to be rid of Fauci, he’ll need to fire him. In recent days especially, the White House has stepped up efforts to discredit Fauci, a move he describes as “bizarre.”

And more importantly attempts to discredit Fauci they kill Americans.

Also, this: “… states that are in trouble right now, if those states pause and say, ‘Okay, we’re going to do it right, everyone wear a mask, bars closed, no congregating in crowds, keep your distance, protect the vulnerable’—if we do that for a few weeks in a row, I’ll guarantee you those numbers will come down.”
