“I’m Not A Doctor, But I Report Fake Medical News On TV” Dept: A couple of actual doctors are extremely put out with the media’s attempts to denigrate and second-guess the Trump Administration’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak. Dr. Drew Pinsky has some words for those attacking Mike Pence’s handling of disease outbreaks as Governor of Indiana, and two of those words are “fake news”:
Also, the claim that President Trump had “muzzled” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Anthony Fauci, was branded as “fake news” by…Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Dr. Fauci said, “I have never been muzzled ever and I’ve been doing this since the Administration of Ronald Reagan, I’m not being muzzled by this Administration...” He said he just put some TV interviews on hold while they reorganized the task force after Pence took over, but now, he’s reapplied for clearance to do them and been approved; “so I have not been muzzled at all, that was a real misrepresentation of what happened.”
My prayer for you all is that you never have a doctor who gets important things wrong as often as the Trump-hating news media do.
