During Thursday nights debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, the president was asked about his recent attacks on Dr. Anthony Facui. The president claimed that he respects Fauci and that he has keep in constant contact with the doctor.
According to Fauci himself, Trump’s remarks are a lie.
Fauci told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd that Trump has not attended a coronavirus task force meeting in “several months.”
Fauci also says, “I definitely don’t have” Trump’s “ear as much as Scott Atlas,” the Fox News radiologist who has all but made “herd immunity” the official policy of this White House.
“Direct involvement with the President,” Fauci said, “I have not done that in a while.”
