Trump and his people dishonestly presenting information? Say it ain’t so! This doesn’t happen every five to ten seconds.

Ouch, Don. Getting called a hypothetical liar to your face. That’s gotta hurt.

Fun Fact: Trump is down by 10.4 in the poll of polls.

“Hypocritical” apologies....

the words from Fauci "are accurate, and directly from Dr Fauci’s mouth.

Indeed, it seems Dr. Fauci said those words. But Trump's campaign staff took them out of context.

Trump and his political campaign backers have long been known for outright 'fake news-ing' and sliming the truth. See Roger Stone etal.

Trump is the most dishonest politician in US history.

Between now and the election wait for more malicious deep fakes from Trump's staff, the Republican Party, their Rapid Response Team, and their 'foreign' backers.

A campaign of lies by a lying, incompetent president.

10 ( +10 / -0 )

Reality has consistently been taken out of context for the past 4 years. Enough.

Kind of like how the Trump campaign is using images of Jackie Robinson and Martin Luther King in their campaign imagery. Were Dr. King alive today Mr. Trump would be calling him a communist terrorist.

What desperation. This was a bridge too far, even for Trump.

Im glad this is gaining attention across the news cycle.

Dr. Fauci is a man of strength and integrity. Trump dares not fire him, because he knows it will be the end of his Presidency.

Sue the campaign if you're serious doc! That's the only way you're going to prevent them from continually using your words out of context and without permission.

In late Feb. and early March Fauci was advising us not to buy and wear masks. Oops.

In July trump was cutting federal funding for “gruesome” fetal tissue research.

In October he’s apparently alive because of it.

Oops.

President Loser.

This has been discussed here numerous times. Initially, very little was known about the virus, and a mask order/request was not deemed necessary. As more information came in, Fauci realized that masks were necessary. This is how science works....initial hypotheses get modified or disposed of with the influx of new and more reliable information. You understand that, right? Good, so no need to continue with the "Fauci said that they weren't necessary" tripe.

I'm surprised the Trump supporters here don't have whiplash - as they praise and cite Fauci one day and then trash him the next....

But that's Trump-world - just ask Tillertson, Cohn, Mattis, Kelly, McMaster, Bolton, Cohen, the "Mooch", and don't forget, Amarossa...

And I don't recall Fauci ever saying that wearing a mask is "Anti-American" or that the virus is "just the flu"...

Or telling everyone now that it is "disappearing", when it is resurging across middle America...

The campaign of lies, racism and violence continues.

I wonder how much further the Trump junta can push the American people?

6 ( +7 / -1 )

Republicans with their gaslighting, hypocrisy and lies all in the service of brainwashing propaganda have turned the techniques of snakeoilmeister Dr. Goebbels up to eleven. Fauci will have to display more feistiness and speak out more forcefully against the political abuse of his name in order to salvage his own honor and self-respect from his lamentable and regrettable association with Trump's maladministration of America's pandemic.

Indeed, it seems Dr. Fauci said those words. But Trump's campaign staff took them out of context. 

It wouldn’t be a first that an administration took words out of context, every single administration have done this.

Trump and his political campaign backers have long been known for outright 'fake news-ing' and sliming the truth. See Roger Stone etal. 

Not even close to the fake news the media has and continues to perpetuate.

Trump is the most dishonest politician in US history.

No, he’s not, he has his faults, he can be abrasive (great point) over the top, at times annoying, bold and bombastic, but THE MOST dishonest politician? Not even close.

Between now and the election wait for more malicious deep fakes from Trump's staff,

You will see from the Dems more spin like this...

GOPBots, why is it alright for Trump to use aborted fetal tissue in his Covid treatment? Is using aborted fetal tissue evil or not?

That question will remain unanswered or dismissed as “fake news”.

Then the next logical question, which non biased non leftist media sources do you recommend? That’ll remain unanswered too.

Then who was Fauci referring to when he said this?

"I can't imagine that anybody could be doing more,"

-8 ( +0 / -8 )

Then who was Fauci referring to when he said this?

Welcome back. Paragraph 4.

9 ( +9 / -0 )

Fauci was praising a lot of people, many people actually. So many people, believe me. He said to them “Sir, I can't imagine that anybody could be doing more”

He wasn’t praising the president.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

How embarrassing, he just got “trumped”!

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Before trump came in nobody counted presidential lies, but since he started with one(largest crowd at inauguration ever) there have been close to 30,000 lies told.

An average person doesn't tell so many lies in ones's lifetime, forget 3 years.

Well, all 3 dipped their toes in the water. I guess that’ll be it then.

He's going to push us into the best economy ever next year. :D

It's not the Trump junta, it's the Trump administration. You need to go look up the meaning of junta.

so the President was specifically excluded from his praise of many people? including the coronavirus task force who works for........the President. I see.

NY Gov. Cuomo was also praising Trump's response before he turned on him like the snake he is.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Yall've been calling Trump a dictator for his entire presidency yet are angry that he didn't overstep his powers. Ya'll have only one consistent message - "Orange Man bad."

Fun Fact: Trump is down by 10.4 in the poll of polls.

Another Fun Fact: In 2016 a couple of weeks before the election Reuters had Hillary at 95% chance to win the Electoral College. Tee hee!

The swing states that Biden is supposedly "winning"?

He is ahead by less than the 2016 Dem candidate who lost those states on election day.

Fauci just regrets his valid comments now because it makes his liberal base angry. Thats what happens when you try to play both sides.

Fauci just regrets his valid comments now because it makes his liberal base angry. 

You're completely sure those valid comments were about Donald Trump and not about healthcare workers in general as he claims?

BlacklabelToday  06:04 pm JST

so the President was specifically excluded from his praise of many people? including the coronavirus task force who works for........the President. I see.

He says he was praising public health officials. Is the President a public health official?

It wouldn’t be a first that an administration took words out of context...

So you admit that Dr. Fauci's accusation is correct.

Paragraph 4. Again.
