"Fauci, who has served under seven presidents as head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was a frequent target of public criticism from President Donald Trump, who accused him and other career scientists at public health agencies of overstating the seriousness of the worsening pandemic and hampering efforts to address it.

"It's obviously a very different situation. It's complete transparency," Fauci said in an interview Thursday. "Nobody is telling you what to say, at all. They are just saying go out there and let the data guide you on what you are saying."


Must be like not werking for a Crime Boss any more.

Trump was a wannabe mobster. Time for him to go into the perjurers' hostile witness protection program.

We may need to coin a new medal for anyone who managed to work in science under trump for the whole 4 years.

Would it be over the top to suggest it show a runaway slave jumping over a fence on the edge of a plantation?

The Medal of Freedom should be discontinued, and replaced with a new reward that means what the Medal of Freedom used to mean before 2017.
