Sure.

 

It's true.  He took the time to praise Trump for several of his actions including the travel ban from China.  Also he acknowledged that part of Trump's job too is the economy.  

He's made it clear that he and the President are not on the outs but working together.

The rest of the interview is:     Fauci admitted that Trump, “to his credit, even though we disagree on some things, he listens. He goes his own way. He has his own style. But on substantive issues, he does listen to what I say.”

I'm happy that he listens to the experts, but it's too juicy a story that "he goes his own way" for the press not to ignore, whether he wishes they wouldn't do it or not.

But I do appreciate that he's trying to instill some sort of confidence in the President's actions that have been good.  We as a nation do need to have confidence in the President.  

I have already posted on right-wing attempts to use the well-respected Fauci, to falsely prop up their leader by the twisting of words.

We saw that in the last post Fauci, and now apparently this one too, based on what you posted.

Trumpsters are desperately trying to prop up a failing Trump!

I saw a Newsweek headline yesterday about a poll that has BOTH Biden and Sanders beating Trump in election.

Yes.

I hope you read WaPo profile I posted about.

Fauci knows how to play to Trump's weaknesses: Flattery.

Fauci isn't stupid.

His Italian immigrant parents raised him well.

From the idea that we need action and not platitudes, something I didn't quite agree with.   We have a comparison of Cuomo and Trump.  

I was talking with a friend about Trump and his incapacity to feel empathy.   Has he really expressed any sorry or condolences to any families of the dead and dying?  Has he shown any sympathy to the epicenter of disaster that is New York?

What Trump has always struggled to do -- in this crisis and other difficult situations in his first term (white supremacist marchers in Charlottesville being a prime example) -- is to lead with empathy. To put the "we" before the "me" to borrow a phrase from CNN's Chris Cuomo. To grasp that leadership isn't just about dividing us for political gain but uniting us behind a common challenge and goal.

The interview with Fauci that you posted about, in which he said he couldn't knock Trump off the stage, tells me how he really feels.

Along with listening to his delicate repudiation of much of what Trump says.

He repudiated him last night.

I heard Governor Cuomo this morning, on NPR, admonishing Trump for patting himself on the back, for getting 400 ventilators to NY, when the need is 50,000.

At yesterday's presser, Trump talked about how well he and Cuomo were working together.

Sure.

I think in a crisis, you work with the devil you must work with, to try and do good.

Do I think Cuomo is going to endorse Trump for second term?

No.

Yes, he went on to say that Trump's saying we need to open the economy by Easter was just "aspirational".  Really it shouldn't be his job to clarify what Trump means to reassure the public.  

I agree with Trump, that "wouldn't it be nice if......." but he should have also added the caveat himself.

Yes, he was quite harsh about the stockpiling of ventilators when he is in such need.  Again, he's an example of "I'd better not bite the hand that feeds me" and balances his criticism with feeding Trump's ego.

Completely agree that no health professional should have to correct misinformation put out by Trump.

Trump should know his place, and shut up.

He isn't a doctor.

This isn't a reality TV show.

This is real life.

And Trump is a grifter.

Trump should shut the hell up!! He should just stop talking. Better yet, he should resign as President and allow someone with the know-how, and who actually gives a damn, to be President. (Although, I don't put much trust in Pence, either, given some of the policies he put in place in his own state.)

Although I'm not a real fan of our state's governor, as President, New York State Governor Cuomo would ensure that all appropriate measures would take place in dealing with this whole Covid-19 thing. Both my wife and I were impressed by his recent speeches. It is nice to have a politician speak candidly and intelligently (unlike Trump).

Trump's Tweet regarding Mitt Romney's negative Covid test.

Quote

This is really great news! I am so happy I can barely speak. He may have been a terrible presidential candidate and an even worse U.S. Senator, but he is a RINO, and I like him a lot!

In the middle of this, this is how he behaves.
