    As explain to you that question makes no sense it’s like saying that since an engineer didn’t invent all engineering he is useless and I’m going to hire a pastry chef to build the bridge.

    Its dumb

    And again do you even know what your point is in asking such a dumb question?

    As to avoiding questions and running way from debate when you don’t have answers then you are one of the biggest culprits - you are notorious for it.

    So let's look at this "challenge" you have issued.
    First let's make it clear that Fauci's role in the media is as a spokesman for what is happening, an official understanding and communication to the public. As such he clarifies what is fact and what is not. This means he analyzes what is presented to the public and then explains it in medical and social terms that we can understand.
    His role is not to tell us scientific intricacies as we wouldn't be able to understand them anyway.

    So someone claims something will cure us, Fauci either confirms, denies, or clarifies the issue. His role is not to originate the claim, but to clarify it.

    Second, in this fast paced news environment it is virtually impossible to identify who utters any information that no one knew, unless it's a bogus made up story which obviously originates with some nut case.

    Third, who is this "no one" you're talking about? Fauci may have informed me of many things I didn't know about, he may have uttered many sentences that contained information I didn't know. Others may have heard some of it, or perhaps others knew all of it, for example people he works with.

    Fourth here's just one sentence I didn't know that Fauci uttered.
    When asked about using dexamethasone early in the treatment of patients
    Fifth, what is your point?
    You don't like Fauci, or what?
    Is there a reason you don't like him giving interviews?

  4. You have already answered the question anyway. There is nothing Fauci has said that provided new information

    I agree

    So, that debate has finished

    OK, so let me see If I can get the latest trump white house timeline of lies straight

    At a campaign rally in Tulsa, Okla., Trump said he ordered a slowdown in coronavirus testing.

    At the White House briefing press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Trump’s claim was “made in jest.”

    Vice President Mike Pence told governors that the president’s comments on testing were a “passing observation,”

    When pressed by reporters on Tuesday. Trump said “Let me make it clear.” “I don’t Kid”

    On Thursday Trump said “His push for less coronavirus testing was sarcasm”

    In the context of covid spiraling out of control, 130,000 deceased Americans, and no end in sight, this kind of infantile behavior is treasonous. In places like Texas, Florida, and Arizona the Governors are accessories to the murder. As are the macho sheriffs in places like Lewis County, WA and all the alcohol fueled guys that think it’s ok. It’s no longer “Typhoid Mary” it’s now “Covid Charlie”.

    Oh, come on... if you can't make a joke about 125 thousand American deaths in six months from covid-19, what can you joke about? I mean, it's not like the stock market is still tanking. Or is it? Let me check. Oh, I guess it is. Time for another bailout!

    Interesting you should mention Typhoid Mary because she too never believed in the science.

    She was a carrier but to her dying day, she never believed she could transmit typhoid to the families she cooked for.

    Pence will will deliver remarks at a 'Faith in America' event in Sarasota, the vice president's office announced Thursday. "

    'I want to remind you again that the freedom of speech and the right to peaceably assemble is enshrined in the Constitution of the United States,' Pence said.

    At least the information he puts out seems trustworthy, which is more than can be said of Trump and Pence. In a see of conflicting claims about the virus, it's important to have a voice people regard as trustworthy. That isn't Trump/Pence.

    Yes ,indeed. He's a charlatan. Thanks for reminding us, but we knew that already.

    Unless it's near a church... in Washington DC... and Trump wants a photo op with an upside down bible... Then we send in the fucking military.

  15. Hey, remember that time he tear gased a bunch of rabid lefties so he could get a photo op. That was funny
  16. I want you to type out a few sentences of something Fauci has said in the last 3 months. Whatever you think was the most ground breaking piece of wisdom that someone who hasn't even set foot in a lab in 20 years imparted on us
  17. Australia's CMO by the way is so commited to the cause he recently took a cushier job where he won't be front and centre when people work out no one was ever going to be able to stop the virus

    You really say some fucked up shyt... You might want to see a specialist about that.
  19. Yeah, I'm sure those protesters that day weren't all about self interest

    Yeah... You might want to see a specialist.
