Ever since the coronavirus panic hit in mid-March 2020, Dr. Fauci has been telling Americans to listen to “the experts” like himself for guidance.
But Fauci can’t be trusted.
That’s because Dr. Fauci was lying to the American people for months and now Donald Trump is livid.
While there are many different opinions on how society should react to the coronavirus, Americans have all been looking towards resuming life like normal before the pandemic.
To do that, the “experts” have been saying that a herd immunity – achieved by enough people being either infected or received the vaccination – is necessary to get past the COVID-19 pandemic.
And for many months, Dr. Fauci has been telling the Trump administration and the American public that herd immunity could be achieved with around a 60-70% infection or vaccination rate.
However, recently on a phone interview with The New York Times, Fauci admitted that he has been “moving the goal posts” for reaching true herd immunity because he doesn’t think that Americans were ready to hear the truth from the beginning.
The New York Times reported:
In the pandemic’s early days, Dr. Fauci tended to cite the same 60 to 70 percent estimate that most experts did. About a month ago, he began saying “70, 75 percent” in television interviews. And last week, in an interview with CNBC News, he said “75, 80, 85 percent” and “75 to 80-plus percent.”
In a telephone interview the next day, Dr. Fauci acknowledged that he had slowly but deliberately been moving the goal posts. He is doing so, he said, partly based on new science, and partly on his gut feeling that the country is finally ready to hear what he really thinks.
Hard as it may be to hear, he said, he believes that it may take close to 90 percent immunity to bring the virus to a halt — almost as much as is needed to stop a measles outbreak.
To put it simply, Fauci has been intentionally lying to the American people and hiding from them the truth.
The only explanation for hiding the truth about the virus from the American people is that he wanted to control the initial reaction.
By making it seem like the virus could actually be gone in a matter of a few months, Americans were willing to play along in Fauci’s game.
But if he told Americans the truth that herd immunity wasn’t going to be achieved until well into 2021 and possibly 2022, he wouldn’t have been able to control the American public’s reaction.
Donald Trump – running on his anti-lockdown agenda – would have easily won reelection against Joe Biden.
Such a huge lie from Dr. Fauci borders on treason.
