Dr Anthony Fauci, director of America’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has been a mainstay at Trump’s press conferences.
Observers have made much of his seeming embarrassment at Trump’s often inane sweeping comments.
Trump’s dismissal in February of the virus threat as a hoax is now a subject of derision.
But remember, Trump was widely scorned for his blanket ban on flights from China.
My observation, rightly or wrongly of Fauci is he suffers from the American disease of a craving for television attention.
What’s not mentioned is not once but twice, a fortnight apart in January, Fauci assured American’s on national television there was zero danger of the virus reaching America.
