Trump Retweets a Call to Fire Dr. Fauci for Being Honest About His Dismissive Coronavirus Response

Donald Trump is up to his usual tricks.

After Dr. Fauci went on record and admitted that Trump should’ve listened to experts on the coronavirus outbreak sooner, Trump took to Twitter to not-so-slyly suggest he should be fired.

Trump retweeted commentary featuring the #FireFauci hashtag.

via TMZ:

Fauci’s comments weren’t necessarily a direct shot at Trump — he told Tapper “what goes into those decisions is complicated” — but the retweet seems to indicate the Prez took it as one.

Trump retweeted a woman claiming Fauci himself told people “there was nothing to worry about and [COVID-19] posed no threat to the US public at large” on February 29. She then wrote, “Time to #FireFauci…”

The President added … “Sorry Fake News, it’s all on tape. I banned China long before people spoke up.”

If you haven’t been paying attention, Trump has been touting his China travel restrictions for saving lives — something Fauci’s praised him for as well — while ignoring his other missteps.

Trump’s next coronavirus task force briefing — typically attended by Fauci — is gonna be interesting.

Trump should have much, MUCH, bigger things to worry about now then whether or not Dr. Fauci agrees with him on everything.
