Dr. Fauci 'absolutely not' surprised that Trump got COVID

3 min read

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the guy Trump likes to disparage and ignore because he knows things, appeared on 60 Minutes last night, and it looks like he’s running out of fucks faster than Trump is running out of chances.

As the U.S. passes 8 million coronavirus infections and more than 220,000 deaths, Fauci appears resigned to the fact that we have a president with an Igloo cooler for a head.

And, no, he wasn’t surprised that the dumbass got sick. Because, well, the dumbass is pretty fucking dumb.


DR. JOHN LAPOOK: “Were you surprised that President Trump got sick?”

FAUCI: “Absolutely not. I was worried that he was going to get sick when I saw him in a completely precarious situation of crowded, no separation between people, and almost nobody wearing a mask. When I saw that on TV I said, ‘Oh, my goodness. Nothing good can come of that. That’s got to be a problem.’ And sure enough, that turned out to be a superspreader event.”

Meanwhile, Trump’s war against science, logic, and the health of our fellow citizens continues apace.

Fauci is a nice guy, and because he’s been head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for 36 years, he obviously doesn’t know anything. Because in Trump’s universe, the more you study, the less keen your instincts are when it comes to finding credible demon sperm doctors.

But Trump is right about one thing. People are tired of hearing about the coronavirus. Of course they are. But, uh, it still exists.

Imagine FDR in 1943 saying people are tired of hearing about the Japanese and the Nazis. Maybe he should have found a military adviser who assured him the Germans would retreat in April, “with the heat.” 

Guess that’s the template for all future crises — ignore them and they’ll eventually go away. With the heat death of the universe, at the very least.
