Dr. Fauci Warned Trump Of ’Surprise’ Infectious Disease Outbreak In 2017

Reprinted with permission from Alternet

Dr. Anthony Fauci, now 79, was warning about the deadly potential of pandemics long before COVID-19 first surfaced in Mainland China in late 2019. Reporter McKenzie Sadeghi, in USA Today, fact-checks reports that Fauci warned President Donald Trump's incoming administration about the possibility of a deadly outbreak in early 2017 and examines what the expert immunologist had to say three and a half years ago.

Sadeghi writes that it is inaccurate to claim that Fauci was warning about COVID-19 specifically in 2017, as the disease didn't exist back then. But to say that Fauci was sounding the alarm about pandemics in general, Sadeghi explains, is absolutely correct.

#EndorseThis: Randy Rainbow's 'Gee Anthony Fauci' Is Parody Gold

Randy Rainbow's tribute to Dr. Anthony Fauci, son of Brooklyn, would have to be New York all the way and so it is. The latest Rainbow satire is set to the tune of West Side Story's "Gee Officer Krupke!" and opens with the usual fake interview, conducted as if Dr. Fauci were a shrink dealing with our collective corona trauma.

But it swiftly accelerates into an uproarious assault on the good doctor's evil boss. A sample lyric:

Hey Anthony Fauci

He's draggin us south

Forget the mask, just slap some masking tape on his mouth.

While you help protect us, he prays it'll pass,

He only covers his own ass!

(His fat ass!)

His own ass, his own ass,

His own big fat ass,

All he tries to save is his own ass.

This tuneful tour de force takes down Ivanka and her "Goya Oh boya" product placement as well as Jared, Kayleigh, and all the other useless White House wads who got in Fauci's way. This is a disaster classic.

And "Gee Anthony Fauci" has subtitles, too. What more do you want? Click and sing along!



Those Who Want Coronavirus Vaccine Should Get It First

Will there be a vaccine against coronavirus? Eventually, we pray. But in this age of unreason, undue attention is already being paid to those who may refuse protection against this often-fatal disease.

We hear paranoid talk of shadowy government figures coming to your home to "force-vax you." Never mind that. When a credible vaccine finally comes out, the crush for it will be immense. The anti-vaxxers could helpfully shorten the lines by getting out of the way of those who want it.

Caught Smearing Fauci, White House Denies Any Role In Oppo Assault

Peter Navarro, Donald Trump's top trade adviser, published a scathing opinion piece in USA Today on Tuesday attacking Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of the White House coronavirus task force.
