Fauci And Birx Take The Press To The Woodshed Over Who’s Really To Blame For Slow First Response

(Tea Party PAC) – The mainstream media has been desperately attempting to use the coronavirus crisis currently unfolding in the United States as a political weapon against the president, which is not a new strategy by any means, given all of the hoopla over the impeachment scandal and the Russia probe before that.

However, there’s something particularly odious about using a national emergency like the coronavirus, which has now killed 4,000 people in America, for political gain.

Many folks in the news media have attempted to paint President Trump up as some sort of raging racist for calling the coronavirus the “Chinese virus,” and for any time he attempts to point the finger at them for the current crisis we are experiencing.

Well, as it turns out, two very important people on his coronavirus task force, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx, have had enough and recently set the record straight about how China really is to blame for the slow response time to the disease due to not reporting all of the necessary information.

Here are the details from BizPacReview:

After National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci revealed that current coronavirus models predict a total of 100,000 to 240,000 Americans will die before the crisis abates, Acosta predictably asked whether the model would have predicted fewer deaths had the government taken mitigation efforts earlier.

Fauci responded by pointing out that mitigation efforts couldn’t have been pursued any earlier because nobody had even been aware of the virus’s impacts precisely because the Communist Party of China had succeeded in hiding these impacts from the world.

Politically correct liberals absolutely hate it when facts reveal a truth that goes against the narrative they are trying to create, which is why they are having a hard time wrapping their heads around the facts presented by Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx. However, like it or not, the truth here is that had China released the proper information as soon as they had it, many of the deaths we have right now probably could have been avoided.

Then, of course, there’s the whole economic collapse happening right now that also could have been avoided too. This is a matter that will directly impact China too, so really, they hurt themselves a lot by not providing this information.

He further admitted that he was hesitant about answering Acosta’s question because he’s aware of how propaganda networks like CNN love to take such answers out of context to boost their #OrangeManBad narrative.

“[I]f there was no virus in the background, there was nothing to mitigate,” he said. “If there was virus there that we didn’t know about, then the answer to your question is probably yes.”

“Now the only trouble with that is that whenever you come out and say something like that, it always becomes almost a sound bite that gets taken out of context.”

Did you notice the slightly veiled shot Fauci took at the liberal media in that last line there? Networks like CNN are notorious for taking sound bites out of larger conversations, stripping them of their context, and plastering them all over the place as a means of helping them craft the anti-Trump narrative they are still trying to push.

Why are they still trying to push this? Because this is still, as of now, an election year, and thus, they want to destroy any possible chances Trump might have of winning come November.

“But they were early. They started early. We were watching South Korea, excuse me, and China and Italy, and we weren’t taking action when those countries were spiking,” he pressed in rebuttal.

“In a perfect world, it would have been nice to know what was going on” in China. We didn’t, but I believe Jim, that we, we acted very, very early in that,” Fauci replied.

In what will probably shock absolutely no one, this conversation has gone largely ignored by the rest of CNN, particulary chief media correspondent Brian Stelter who conveniently left the whole thing out of his daily newsletter. Wouldn’t want to pop the bubble on the narrative, right?

Also absent from his newsletter and other written content from the network is what was said by fellow task force member Dr. Deborah Birx.

Later during Tuesday’s briefing, she reiterated Fauci’s point by noting that China has been hiding internal data about the virus since day one.

“[W]hen you talk about could we have known something different. I think … when you look at the China data originally and you said, oh, well there’s 80 million people or 20 million people in Wuhan and 80 million people in Hubei, and they come up with a number of 50,000 [infected], you start thinking of this more like SARS than you do this kind of global pandemic,” she said.

“I mean, I’ll just be frank … I think the medical community interpreted the Chinese data as that this was serious but smaller than anyone expected because I think probably we were missing a significant amount of the data.”

There you have it, folks. Confirmation from the leading experts in the war against the coronavirus. The blame for the slow response belongs with China. No one else. Let them suffer the consequences for their actions. Let’s hold them responsible and demand they help pay the cost for the damage done to the economy, all of which could have been lessened with proper sharing of information.

It’s the least they can do for causing this mess.

  1. Please let me point out a few facts as the why CNN keeps up with their blatant anti-Trump ‘reporting’ and opinion. They need an audience. Therefore, from Acosta to the top of CNN they spin and invent events toappeal to the die hard liberal people in America. We all know people that listen to the drumbeat of the liberal media and politicians like Schumer, Pelosi, and Schiff. These people crave reinforcement of their bias. These people number in tens of millions. They depend on CNN, MSNBC, Washington Post, New York Times to run and print and publish online stories that enable them as consumers of so-called ‘news’ to feel they belong to a large, normal subset of society. The people give CNN and the others an audience that generate advertising dollars. It’s all about ratings and money for the owners of these media outlets. AT&T owns CNN.
    When the AT&T CEO and Board meet they review revenues and profits. They care about the bottom line as they should. Wall Street analysts rate and investors buy AT&T shares based in part on CNN revenue. If CNN reported objectively they would be competing against Fox News. Same for Fox News, they have an audience they serve. Folks, it all takes place in the Board Rooms. AT&T owns CNN. Therefore, Acosta does exactly what they do – appeal to an audience. His ‘values’ would shift if he was employed by Fox News. He is merely pimped out by AT&T to bring in cash. So all of you posters an indignant people quit attacking Acosta. He is doing a great job serving his pimp. Admire his ability to spin and lie and get away with it. The same goes for all of the people who create the spin on the liberal channels. They work for their owners and by serving up what their anti-Trump and PC audiences want they rearn their salaries. Even Jerry Springer and WWE wrestling have big audiences. Their audiences want to believe so they do.

  2. Where are the Trump “deplorables”? I would like to see them kicking the heads of politicians like Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff, and fake reporters like Acosta and billiard ball Brian Shelter with hobnailed boots till their body reaches the morgue.

    • They should be investigated and likely charged for not registering as foreign agents and made serious examples to others like them.

  3. Noboby I cannot believe no one blanes Trump ever. All Politics. Trump is at fault too he even said knew but thought it would pass.

  4. Communist Network News is like a fart in a windstorm! The operative is to be up wind at all times.
    Urinal-ism Right!

  5. CNN and Acosta are two mindless examples of things we need to eliminate in this country, It wouldn’t surprise me if Acosta has been supplemented monetarily by deep state interests for at least 3 years,,he is a troublemaking piece of crap,,,he needs a good old country visit to the wood shed,,,,,,his behavior is despicable, he is a vermin that tries desperately to be relevant but he just can’t make the grade,,,he should immediately read up on libel and slander laws before he ends up before a judge in a 10,000,000 law suit.

    • He and Nancy probably could use a couple of shots anytime during the day or night. Alcoholic Liberal mindless freaks.

  6. To Emma,
    I am STUNNED that you & others think that this is a good time to put silly commercials for money making schemes here! KNOCK IT OFF!

  7. It is long past time, that FALSE NEWS pundits like Acosta clean out their ears, open their eyes and wash out their mouths. Maybe then they will be able to hear the whole truth, see the big picture and report the entire truth accurately instead of partially.
    Instead of lying or reporting inaccurately maybe they could humble themselves and turn away from their wicked ways so that God will heal our land & the entire world!

  8. All the CNN clowns keep pushing their BS narrative and that we did not move fast enough to suit them. When DJT cut travel from China, the left whined; when DJT cut travel fromn the EU, the left whined. That was WAY early.

    Obozo never did anything to suppress the Swine Flu. He did get a good tee time.

    • Notice how they never compare that. It’s hysterical when Biden talks up their response to it. Notice how CNN or MSNBC doesn’t bring up the fact the Obama administration never restocked after swine flu which is why we’re in the predicament to begin with. The Democratic states are complaining about lack of supplies but it’s THEIR responsibility to make sure they’re prepared for a crisis such as this. I believe the democrats had something going with China to destroy our economy just so they can beat Trump. Pure EVIL!

  9. Why can’t we take CNN (Communist News Network) and put THEM out of BUSINESS for putting out FALSE news (actually LIES)? They need to be SUED into POVERTY and OUT of Business. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  10. If the American people do not throw out any elected official trying to paint the President’s response and actions negatively for political gain, then they will get what they deserve in November – communist, vote pandering, egotists running this country. My fallen brothers would turn over in their graves if the were to see what **ap the Democrats are pushing today.

    • Trump is at fault. He knew enough he even said on TV ignored info as thought it would not be that bad.
      What is it with people say the truth on Trump.

    • No, J. Sanchez, whoever programmed your bot is at fault. The sentence structure is horrible and you keep repeating the same fecal matter.
