This is a day to mark down in the calendar. Mark Meadows knows more about the coronavirus than Anthony Fauci. And he’s going to tell you what Fauci said right or what he said wrong. Hard to believe, but that’s what Meadows said on Fox News. Dr. Fauci addressed a group of Georgetown University students in a virtual address, wherein he opened by saying, “This is a pandemic of historic proportions. It’s something that I think when history looks back on it, it will be comparable to what we saw in 1918.” That stuck in Meadow’s craw for some reason and he lashed out at Fauci on Fox News. After saying it was inappropriate for Peter Navarro to write an op-Ed attacking Dr. Fauci, Mark Meadows criticizes Fauci for statements comparing the coronavirus to the 1918 flu epidemic. pic.twitter.com/CcUfyOzZqe — Acyn Torabi (@Acyn) July 16, 2020 Fauci was also asked who to listen to with respect to the pandemic. “For the most part, you can trust respected medical authorities. I believe I am one of them,” said Fauci, a graduate of Jesuit schools – Regis High School and College of the Holy Cross. “I would stick with respected medical authorities who have a track record of telling the truth, who have a track record of giving information and policy and recommendations based on scientific evidence and good data.” Mark Meadows clearly disagreed. I guess you’re supposed to forget about Fauci’s opinion and take Meadows’. At least that seems to be his inference. It is glaringly apparent that no matter how much this White House may back down and say they have a “great” relationship with Dr. Fauci, they’re upset because he won’t become Trump’s toady and lie about the reality of the pandemic. I think that proposition has just been ratified, once again, and you can take it to the bank as the official Trump White House policy.

Sometimes people in Washington get it plain wrong!
If conservatives support police killing citizens without justification, climate denial, fact denial, science denial, racist and misogynistic behavior, or a litany of other absurd points of view about numerous important issues, we call them out.
