Donald Trump just attacked Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx in a new statement that can only be described as incoherent word salad.
The following statement are words from someone slowly losing his mind. Trump is gaslighting for sure, but his mental state has deteriorated rapidly.
From Donald Trump:
Based on their interviews, I felt it was time to speak up about Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx, two self-promoters trying to reinvent history to cover for their bad instincts and faulty recommendations, which I fortunately almost always overturned. They had bad policy decisions that would have left our country open to China and others, closed to reopening our economy, and years aways from an approved vaccine – putting millions of lives at risk.
We developed American vaccines by an American President in record time, nine months, which is saving the entire world. We bought billions of dollars of these vaccines on a calculated bet that they would work, perhaps the most important bet in the history of the world. Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx moved far too slowly, and if it were up to them we’d currently be locked in our basements as our country suddered through a financial depression. Families, and children in particular, would be suffering the mental strains of this disaster like never before.
In a fake interview last night on CNN, Dr. Fauci, who said he was an athlete in college but couldn’t throw a baseball even close to home plate, it was a “roller,” tried to take credit for the vaccine, when in fact he said it would take three to five years, and probably longer, to have it approved. Dr. Fauci was incapable of pressing the FDA to move it through faster. I was the one to get it done, and even the fake news media knows and reports this.
Dr. Fauci is also the kind of “flip-flops” and moving the goalposts to make himself look as good as possible. He fought me so hard because he wanted to keep our country open to countries like China. I closed it against his strong recommendation, which saved many lives. Dr. Fauci also said we didn’t need to wear masks, then a few months later he said we needed to wear masks, and now, two or three of them. Fauci spent U.S. money on the Wuhan lab in China – and we know how that worked out.
Dr. Birx is a proven liar with very little credibility left. Many of her recommendations were viewed as “pseudo-science,” and Dr. Fauci would always talk negatively about here and, in fact, would ask not to be in the same room with her. The States who followed her lead, like California, had worse outcomes on Covid, and ruined the lives of countless children because they couldn’t go to school, ruined many businesses, and an untold number of Americans who were killed by the lockdowns themselves. Dr. Birx was a terrible medical advisor, which is why I seldom followed her advice. He motto should be “Do as I say, not as I do.” Who can forget when Dr. Birx gave a huge mandate to the people of our Nation to not travel, and then traveled a great distance to see her family for Thanksgiving – only to have them call the police and turn her in? She then, embarrassingly for her, resigned.
Finally, Dr. Birx says she can’t hear very well, but I can. There was no “very difficult” phone call, other than Dr. Birx’s policies that would have led us directly into a COVID caused depression. She was a very negative voice who didn’t have the right answers. Time has proven me correct. I only kept Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx on because they worked for the U.S. government for so long – they are like a bad habit!
Hahahahaha. That’s the end.
Jesus. I can’t believe I just typed that from the screenshot. (Via Andrew Feinberg)
On Dr. Fauci and the vaccine… Trump is trying to take credit for it. Well guess what? What was he going to do not approve fast tracking the vaccine? Of course he was going to fast track it. That’s not even a yes or no “decision” to me made! What an idiot.
On Dr. Birx… All I can say is, this has time and time again proven to be who Donald Trump is: everything he touches he destroys. Dr. Birx, with all her faults, showed her loyalty to him at the expense of her entire reputation. And now he throws her under the bus and runs her over.
Unreal. There were so many others things in the statement that didn’t make sense (or just outright lies) like the China thing and the children but whatev.
I really hope, while his mind can still understand a few things, that Donald Trump reads exactly how negatively history will remember him.
