I love how dumb fuck Trumpers think they know better than a world renowned infectious disease specialists. These dumb fucks would rather listen to Donald Dumbass for guidance then someone who has spent over 30 years in his position and is respected around the world, his advice is saving lives. Tens of thousands.

It is not for nothing that I believe that there is a Brian eating maggot that resides in the brains of all Trumpers. Their stupidity is beyond explanation.
I'm not "listening" to anyone in particular. I listened to EVERYONE, then I compared their positions to REALITY.

At this point the Dr clearly has Trumps ear as he is still allowed to promote his "position" so I have CLEARLY deviated from Trump on this. If I was in agreement with Trump I would have said nothing.

Now go grab a box of crayons and play with the rest of the children incapable of thinking for themselves
What is “incapable of thinking for themselves” mean. Thinking for yourselves means listening and reading what is out their and coming to an informed opinion. Fauci’s actions have been in line with the actions taken by other nations. His advice has been spot on.

If the death rates are lower in this nation than projected it is because of actions taken. Some Trumpers would have you believe that if we took no action death rates would have remained the same. Nothing is a bigger lie. You can’t prove a negative, but all we have to see as proof of the ramifications of doing nothing is the Havoc and death Covid-19 has caused other nations that let this virus spread before taking it seriously.

Thinking for yourself does not mean being contrarian for contrarian‘s sake.
If the death rates are lower, Fauci will get credit, not Trump, correct? If the economy tanks, Trump will get the blame, not Fauci, correct?

Yep, Trump has permanently damaged this country.
Actually liberals did, but your shame will be over in several weeks.
asswipePINO did, unlike you I have proof, four bipartisan MOC's.
Like i said, it will be over in weeks, but since we quarantined ourselves. More than likely it will come back. Thanks to Trump hating liberals and the media. Should've let it take it's course, then we would be done with it once and for all.
The virus, maybe. The economic crash will take decades. I warned you guys about asswipePINO before he was elected. Didn't listen. I told you guys right here on the USMB to get out of the market at 29. Didn't listen. Now you guys are fucked, but the really sad part is you haven't figured it out yet.
How exactly would an economic crash be Trump's fault? He has been taking advice from the left's new God, Fauci. We would already be in a depression if it weren't for Trump's economy leading up to this. The DOW is still 5k points above when he took the office from Obama.

Democrats are ignorant. Is is that simple.

He's a doctor, and has looked at this virus and seen what it is and can do. He also knows that it will probably be around every year now, and without a vaccine, you could possibly have a pandemic every year. But, even with a vaccine, we will never be able to return to the days before COVID, because now everyone is going to be looking for it. If we get a vaccine, we might get back to some semblance of normalcy. One thing about this virus, if they get a yearly vaccine for it, I'm gonna go get shots.
No, he's a researcher who is badmouthing actual ER doctors who know better than to wait for a 2 year study on Hydroxy when they are watching it work miracles in real time. I gave up on his opinions a month ago since he has no real data to work from and is rigid in his testing standards, flying in the face of anecdotal evidence. He seems quite upset a layman like Trump has been correct about the CURE and he's been wrong.
You'll have to point me to the article that has him badmouthing ER doctors. I've remembered him cautioning the public about placing too much faith in treatments that haven't been fully researched or had much of a clinical trial performed. That's just being cautious. The FDA has lowered the rails for access to treat people with these drugs. Doctors can prescribe the drugs for their patients if they deem it necessary. There is nothing stopping that from happening. The drug is not a cure and that's what Dr Fauci was cautioning against. It's shown promise in treating people already infected with the virus.
There are many doctor's that have much more faith in hyrdoxychoroquine than Fauci seems to have. Doctors makes bad decisions every day. Fauci seems to be living in a medical Utopia, where factors other than the spread of this virus do not need to be taken into account. He has a myopic view, which is fine since that is his expertise and why he was called in to help. Unfortunately, real world doesn't function that way. Fauci wasn't called in to call all the shots in the country because the country is much more complex than this virus. I don't know Fauci's political ties, but he certainly as the mindset of a lefty with blinders on.
No he doesn't have the mindset of a lefty. He has the mindset of a doctor who is standing up in front of a nation that is listening to him. So when he speaks, he is measured. Because people see him standing in front of that seal and will take whatever is coming out of his mouth as accurate. Something that Trump has never learned. Fauci and Birx were called in because things were getting out of hand on the virus front and it was clear Trump was in over his head. He had no idea what to do. But I would expect that from someone who has no idea of how government is supposed to function. And you can thank Pence and perhaps the rest of the Congressional leadership for bringing in the professionals. It probably saved Trump's Presidency. Doctors are allowed to prescribe these drugs (and have been for a while now) if they deem it necessary. The FDA eased the restrictions on approvals for these treatments. The data gathering and clinical trials are going on in tandem and eventually, they may be permanently approved as treatment if the results are largely positive. Same can be said about research into plasma therapy, and work on vaccines and other treatments. All good things. But the widespread testing will have to be addressed before anyone can think about getting back to anything approaching "normal".

He is a doctor. Not an economist. Not a business. Not a fortune teller. Not a stock broker. Not a carpenter. Not a preacher. Not a bus driver.
His PERSONAL feelings are irrelevant. In fact what is "normal" for him may have no impact on another person.

Why is Trump allowing him to spew his doom and gloom, woe is me and general negative outlook on this situation.

What the American people need to hear is that we are going to get through this via TEMPORARY hard choices and sacrifices.
What they don't need is the asinine guess work about how we are screwed and can't recover.
We are and have always been a nation of achievers. We've overcome MANY devastating obstacles throughout our history and ALWAYS come out ahead in the long run.

This kind of pessimistic bullshit needs to be nipped in the bud. Americans need hope not fear.
Him and he can take his sidekick bill gates with him too. The american people are already getting tired of these local and city govts preaching to them and telling them what they cant do. Screw em all.
Bill Gates is in the government? When did that happen? And he spent billions of dollars trying to produce a vaccine. What an asshole that guy is.
He is. He's also a proponent of eugenics and ID2020. A nice injectable tracking system. No thanks.

Man. The RW echo chamber is hard at work trying to saddle Dr. Fauci with the economic crash that has begun.

Quite the spectacle.
Cool, so in your pitiful mind the crash is Trump's fault. Will you give credit to Trump for less than 60k deaths when the models were showing much higher than that?

Sounds as though you are starting to ease into the idea about the positive efficacy of these drugs. You have to do it in such as way as to not admit Trump may have been correct. If Trump had not mentioned these drugs during his press conference, the left would not have been so fervent in the idea that they don't work. They have pushed this narrative because the don't want Trump to get any credit whatsoever.

Fauci and Birx were called in because things were getting out of hand on the virus front and it was clear Trump was in over his head.
Any president would consult with doctors in a time like this. It has absolutely nothing to do with being "over his head."

The herd mentality of the left will be our country's downfall.

I always have. And I've never pitched the idea they don't work. I've objected to the blanket notion that Trump and his supporters think these drugs can be rolled out and touted as treatments and cures when no such studies have been conducted..all in the hopes of going back to "normal" so that Donald can have something to campaign on and can hold his pep rallies again. Sorry, the FDA took down the rails for these drug approvals before Trump stood up and touted them. How do you think he found out about them? It wasn't by being a mental giant. Yes, he's in over his head. You can see it in the hand movement, eyes and facial expressions, and his run on, babbling sentences during his daily pressers. You can just sense the people around him waiting for that moment to shuffle him off.

It was the virus that killed the economy, not Trump and he will be reelected.
asswipePINO failed to act. I have proof, four bipartisan MOC's.
Nope the economy was booming till this virus. Millions dead reported at first, now 60,000 reported to die. You loons screwed the pooch again! Lol
I'm not going to debate with stupid.
Nothing to debate, liberals crashed the economy because you know you cannot win in November. Now that the cat is out of the bag, you still won't win in November.

Wrong. Trump first mentioned the drug on March 19th. The FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization on March 28th. I might add, my wife is an Internist and knew about the promising results of his treatment about the same time Trump mentioned it or maybe a week before.

Formal FDA approval was on March 28th. You get that. But the drug was being prescribed by doctors for their patients before that date. How did Trump know about the drug? It's not like he's well read. Again, these drugs are promising. Fauci even says so. And he's even nice to Trump at the end of the article. And you want to get rid of him?
Here's what you need to know about hydroxychloroquine

There is no way Hillary would be able to do daily 2 hour pressers. She called half the population deplorables. That means she even hates many that do vote for her. She uses people. When she compares herself as one of any minority group it is sickening.

Any president would consult with doctors in a time like this. It has absolutely nothing to do with being "over his head."

The herd mentality among the left will be our country's downfall.
I always have. And I've never pitched the idea they don't work. I've objected to the blanket notion that Trump and his supporters think these drugs can be rolled out and touted as treatments and cures when no such studies have been conducted..all in the hopes of going back to "normal" so that Donald can have something to campaign on and can hold his pep rallies again. Sorry, the FDA took down the rails for these drug approvals before Trump stood up and touted them. How do you think he found out about them? It wasn't by being a mental giant. Yes, he's in over his head. You can see it in the hand movement, eyes and facial expressions, and his run on, babbling sentences during his daily pressers. You can just sense the people around him waiting for that moment to shuffle him off.
There is no way Hillary would be able to do daily 2 hour pressers. She called half the population deplorables. That means she even hates many that do vote for her. She uses people. When she compares herself as one of any minority group it is sickening.
Except I wouldn't have to listen to Hillary speak for more than a few minutes before she stepped aside and let the professionals talk. I also wouldn't have to cringe at the rambling, run on sentences, the goofy hand gestures and weird eye movements. In other words, I'd be looking and listening to someone who had the capacity to stand at that podium and give answers to questions. Not sound like a drunk who just stumbled out of a bar at closing time.

Yep, Trump has permanently damaged this country.
Actually liberals did, but your shame will be over in several weeks.
asswipePINO did, unlike you I have proof, four bipartisan MOC's.
Like i said, it will be over in weeks, but since we quarantined ourselves. More than likely it will come back. Thanks to Trump hating liberals and the media. Should've let it take it's course, then we would be done with it once and for all.
The virus, maybe. The economic crash will take decades. I warned you guys about asswipePINO before he was elected. Didn't listen. I told you guys right here on the USMB to get out of the market at 29. Didn't listen. Now you guys are fucked, but the really sad part is you haven't figured it out yet.
How exactly would an economic crash be Trump's fault? He has been taking advice from the left's new God, Fauci. We would already be in a depression if it weren't for Trump's economy leading up to this. The DOW is still 5k points above when he took the office from Obama.

Democrats are ignorant. Is is that simple.

Wrong. Trump first mentioned the drug on March 19th. The FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization on March 28th. I might add, my wife is an Internist and knew about the promising results of his treatment about the same time Trump mentioned it or maybe a week before.
Bump..what no snide replies from you lefties? You get dinged on the facts and you just move on to the next Trump bashing nonsense you hear on the news.

I gave that to you. March 28th was the date the FDA issued formal approval. You might have missed it. I also asked how Trump knew of the drug in the first place? (linked article will tell you how).

Cool, so in your pitiful mind the crash is Trump's fault. Will you give credit to Trump for less than 60k deaths when the models were showing much higher than that?
The models predicting a higher death count were based on what would happen if we followed Trump's "no need to worry" advice from Jan. to early March.
