Dr. Anthony Fauci isn’t an idiot, but by God, man—are you for real with this remark about COVID deaths? The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases chief who has been a trainwreck on masks now has a new mind-numbingly stupid hot take on COVID deaths. He simply doesn’t see how there could be excess deaths in this year besides those from COVID. He said this during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper. Tapper was teeing up whether the COVID death count has been undercounted. Some study showed that the U.S. saw 20 percent more deaths between March and August of this year.
Not suicide, drug/alcohol abuse, violent crime, etc.? https://t.co/qlGuZwqWtv

Apparently, dear Dr. Fauci has never heard of suicidal depression triggered by an economic collapse or people not going to the Dr. because he has scare mongered us into staying home and not getting cancer treatments or checkups. https://t.co/dd6ohJfkAh

Much to Jake Tapper’s apparent chagrin, Dr. Fauci grudgingly admits Trump’s right about now being immune to Covid pic.twitter.com/wJKmALXl5W

When you have worked your whole life to build up a business only to have it be destroyed because of the hysteria drummed up by so-called medical experts, I’d get depressed. Most Americans would risk infection rather than see their livelihoods go up in smoke. Depression is up, as is drug use, domestic violence, and a host of other issues, doc. Really, you can’t think of any reason? We knew this back in April (via ABC7):
Calls to a suicide and help hotline in Los Angeles went up more than 8,000% from February to March because of the novel coronavirus.
According to the Orange County Register, the Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services Center in Los Angeles took 22 calls to their hotline related to COVID-19 in February.
But one month later, that number soared to 1,800 calls.
COVID will sooner be known as one of the greatest overreactions of all time, thanks to an increasingly ‘woke’ scientific community who saw their chance to ignite a panic in order to influence an election. As a result, these people’s time is over. It’s done.
Re-opening businesses is wrong. Protesting in support of reopening one’s economy is white nationalism or something BUT protesting in support of liberal causes and rioting on behalf of Black Lives Matter is OK. Why? Well, racism is just as bad as COVID. That’s what these clowns said. You can riot…because ‘orange man, bad.’ The virus cannot be transmitted if you’re a left-wing terrorist, but don’t you dare attend the funerals of loved ones. That’s why people scoff at the mask mandates. That’s why people are rightfully giving the finger to the so-called experts. These people are ‘woke’ morons who think their medical degree shields them from us seeing right through their liberal political dispositions. They’re no better than the operatives at the DNC. Ignore the experts. Hell, the LA Lakers won the championship this week. People flocked to the streets. I guess the virus is over, right?
