"People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots, all these idiots who got it wrong," Trump said on the call.

Trump also claimed that "every time [Fauci] goes on television there's always a bomb," an apparent reference to Fauci's media appearances, which included him telling CBS's "60 Minutes" on Sunday night that he was "absolutely not" surprised that Trump himself caught the coronavirus."

"Fauci is a disaster. If I listened to him, we'd have 500,000 deaths," Trump baselessly claimed, before later saying the death toll would be 700,000 or 800,000.

The President has consistently undercut public health measures recommended by Fauci and other top government experts intended to break the chain of infection."

Fauci polls better on public opinion trust levels than either political candidates' favorability rating:
In the Times survey, 84 percent of voters said they trusted medical scientists to provide reliable information about the virus, with 90 percent of Democrats and 75 percent of Republicans trusting the experts. Overall trust in the C.D.C. was 77 percent " 71 percent among Republicans and 83 percent among Democrats.

At this week's debate,

Trump's trying to get out of this debate unless he's able to make it all about Russia's disinformation dump about Hunter Biden and his nonexistent "scandal" in Ukraine.

Trump Campaign Seeks Changes to Final Debate, Baselessly Accusing Organizers of Pro-Biden Antics'

In a letter on Monday marked by exaggeration and partisan invective, Mr. Trump's campaign manager, Bill Stepien, asked the Commission on Presidential Debates to refocus Thursday's debate on the subject of foreign policy, rather than the six subjects announced last week by the moderator, Kristen Welker of NBC. They are "fighting Covid-19," "American families," "race in America," climate change, national security and leadership.

Mr. Stepien " who mockingly referred to the nonpartisan commission as the "Biden Debate Commission" in a tweet " said it had "promised" that the debate would be about foreign policy and accused the group of "pro-Biden antics" that "have turned the entire debate season into a fiasco."

Joe shouldn't even show up unless they've agreed to turn off the other mic when one candidate is speaking.

Otherwise it's going to be chaos again, which is what Trump wants... chaos.

I wonder if it's so much what he wants as the only thing he can do.

Trump does 2 rallies a day because he knows he will oversaturate the media and get into at least a few more peoples' heads as a result.

The MSM should have stopped covering his rallies years ago.

It's the most curious concept: "The MSM is all-in for Biden! It's rigged!"

The MSM has been making more money with Trump in office than they have ever had before mainly because his administration is an absolute circus. The MSM is run by conservative oligarchs; they are making money hand over fist. Why in the hell would they be openly in favor of the boring, sleepy Joe candidate and his socialist policies?

Boy, I'll tell you whut, it jut don't make no sense a-toll.

There's zero liberal bias in the media.

Unfortunately for conservatives.

Reality has a liberal bias.

Why did they feel the need to cut up what Trump says and alter context?

President Donald Trump was critical of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, saying on a campaign call Monday that "every time [Fauci] goes on television there's always a bomb," CNBC's Dan Mangan reports.

"There's a bigger bomb if you fire him," Trump said. "This guy's a disaster."

"People are tired of Covid," Trump said to campaign staff on the call.

"People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots, all these idiots who got it wrong," Trump said. "Chris Eudaily

Trump is calling all pro-PPE guidance in his own administration as coming from "idiots" and that he laments that he cannot just fire Dr. Fauci to eliminate the true authority.

"Trump's criticism of Fauci on Monday came the same day the National Academy of Medicine awarded the disease expert with its first-ever Presidential Citation for Exemplary Leadership. Presenting the award, academy president Victor J. Dzau praised Fauci's 'firm and steady leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic' and for 'offering an unwavering, trusted voice to the nation and world on behalf of science-based policy and public health.'"

Trump caught wind that Fauci would be honored, which explains his rant against him. Trump clearly believes that he deserves the exact honor that Fauci received.

Despicable, deplorable, JFC...it's truly Trumpian.

When Trump heard that they had named the award, the "Presidential Citation for Exemplary Leadership", he just naturally assumed that it was intended for him since it said "Presidential" and when he looked around, he was the only 'President' within earshot.

"Trump says Biden will Listen to Fauci"

Another good reason to vote for Biden.

I'm sure it's coming, but I was fully expecting to see TV ads today with these comments in them, as well as the comments from Sasse regarding Dotard kissing dictator's butts. C'mon Biden Campaign this is GOLD! Coronavirus is still polling at or near the top of voter concerns in this country, your candidate his a significant lead on this issue, and you have the occupant of the WH admitting that Joe will listen to THE MOST TRUSTED expert in the world on Coronavirus! This drives home the point that has been responsible for much of Joe's lead, you use the crap out of this comment, it should be running on a loop through election day, in every language, TV, Radio, Digital, Billboards, Mailers!

Gunslinger - that ad showed up on my facebook feed, just Trump saying "Biden will Listen to Fauci" then cuts to Biden saying 'I approve this message.' It was quite funny.

You probably read that 'nodding woman' was a Trump supporter photographed with the Proud Boys more than once.
