Action versus words. You can’t distinguish between the two.Oldermanish, why the kindness? Downplaying? That would appear as if people asked softball questions all day everyday. The President and his surrounding staff were asked repeatedly,directly about risks,about danger and death. They often gave lies,deadly false information, the only debate is the intent. Death occurred because of false information.
This is almost a fairytale about shark invested waters but when asked about the known danger saying, the water is fine! Enjoy your swim..
Real estate agent finds someone who doesn't know what 3 mile island is and in a rush gets together a contract..
The lying,lack of transparency are immoral and criminal.
I told a lie to save you from the truth is not a defense,it's a delusion..
Americans are dead because they have been intentionally mislead..The only discussion going on is between the two groups,one that thinks lying is OK and the other group that thinks it's not..
Months worth of direct,specific questions and the answers given make things very very very clear, the new audio released doesn't hurt!!!
On "The Daily Briefing," host John Roberts asked Fauci if he thought Trump had played down the threat of the virus.
“No, I didn't," Fauci responded. "I didn't get any sense that he was distorting anything. I mean in my discussions with him, they were always straightforward about the concerns that we had. We related that to him. And when he would go out, I'd hear him discussing the same sort of things. He would often say, 'We just got through with a briefing with the group from the task force,' and would talk about it. So it may have happened, but I have not seen that kind of distortion."
Roberts also asked Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, whether Trump broke with his advisers in trying to downplay the virus.
"You were there through that whole thing," Roberts said. "Was that the playbook or was that the president just going his own direction?"
"I don't think so, John," Fauci responded. "I don't recall anything different than in our discussions that we had with the president that he said things quite similar publicly."
The March interview, along with 18 other on-the-record conversations between Woodward and Trump, form the basis of Woodward's book "Rage," due out later this month.
"I didn't really go over any of the text since it just came out," Fauci told Roberts. "But you know, in my discussions and the discussions of other task force members with the president, we're talking about the reality of what was going on.
"And then when we would get up in front of the press conferences, which were very, very common after our discussions with the president, he really didn't say anything different than we discussed when we were with him," he went on. "I may not be tuned in to the right thing that they're talking about. But, I didn't see any discrepancies between what he told us and what we told him, and what he came out publicly and said."
So I guess somehow Fauci is now a schill For the office holder. Lol.
