(Tea Party PAC) – Imagine you’re on the coronavirus task force, strategizing the best way to keep the most Americans alive as possible as we battle the global pandemic, and you’re forced to put up with the virulently anti-Trump media on a daily basis.
This is Dr. Anthonyy Fauci, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director, who had a hard time keeping a straight face watching President Donald Trump trolled the press beautifully during a recent White House presser on the nation’s efforts to combat the virus.
Out of respect for the gravitas of the briefing, Fauci tried to cover up his hard-to-miss chuckling by covering his face with his hand.
“One thing: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is extremely busy, so if you have any questions for him right now, could you do that?” the president was saying to the reporters.
“You know what I’d like to do? I’d like him to go back to the State Department. Or as I call it, the Deep State Department.”
Fauci, like so many of us, found it hilarious when Trump made this reference to the “Deep State Department.”
Never a dull moment with this president.
Of course, the propagandists in the media, as they are wont to do, took this comment and ran with it.

Dr Fauci standing behind Trump today: You had an infectious disease expert like Dr Fauci touch his face during a pandemic because Trump's comments were so idiotic! He has to be thinking: "I Should have retired when President Obama left" pic.twitter.com/aHmKCeEOgJ

Why can’t @JoeBiden just have his own #coronavirus briefings? I bet Dr Fauci would never make this face while standing next to #JoeBiden, because he’d deliver actual truths & facts instead of this illegitimate #LiarInChief 🤨 #TerribleTrump #TrumpLiesAboutCoronavirus https://t.co/vPQtDtY8nO pic.twitter.com/eAGQgxSE96

Dr Fauci's face and body language say it all.
That is a man of honor deeply DEEPLY troubled by what's happening here.

BizPac Review explains:
See what they did? Being as they’re masters of misinformation and disinformation, these hucksters removed all context by eliminating the part of the clip that shows Fauci laughing and instead only showing the part where he brings his hand to his face.
These propagandists essentially manipulated the footage to make it seem as if the doctor was face-palming. Yet ironically, these are the same propagandists who cry foul when the president’s team does the same thing. Apparently, two wrongs make a right.
Except whereas the president’s admitted lies and manipulations are few and far between, the establishment left’s proclivity for mistruths runs deep.
Media spread fake news about Dr. Fauci being "muzzled"
Media falsely said pandemic office was closed
Media cuts off the President in mid-sentence to mischaracterize help offered to governors
Media mischaracterized what POTUS said about Google developing a website (they are)

Remember when the media said that Trump “dissolved” the pandemic response office.
The office’s former senior director just came out and said that it was not dissolved and that the media is lying, again.
And they wonder why we call them fake news.

When conservatives cut off part of Joe Biden's comment, it's called "manipulated video."
When multiple established media outlets do it to @realdonaldtrump, it's called "reporting."
Do y'all really not know why we don't trust you? https://t.co/OmoxEZVWwG
