DISGUSTED? FAUCI WALKS AWAY INSTEAD OF ANSWERING REPORTER WHO PRAISES CHINA’S VIRUS RESPONSE

Many of the assembled press corps at the President’s daily briefings have been showing a shocking level of admiration for the Chinese government’s VOCID-19 response.
Some experts believe that the Chinese hid the existence of this deadly plague for an extended period of time which may have caused up to 95% of the cases worldwide. According to another report, it may have controlled COVID-19 through “despotic measures.”
When a reporter asked Fauci about the World Health Organization praising the Chinese government for its crisis response, the doctor had no patience.First, President Trump answered: “It’s been very unfair. … I have heard for years that that is very much biased toward China, so I don’t know. Doctor, do you want to you — do you want me to get you into this political mess?
Fauci laughed and said, “No, I don’t want you to do that. But I will,”
Fauci’s answer started by praising WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who he said was an “outstanding person” before adding, “I mean, obviously, over the years, anyone who says that the WHO has not had problems has not been watching the WHO. But I think, under his leadership, they’ve done very well. He has been all over this. I was on the phone with him a few hours ago leading a WHO call.”
The reporter pushed and asked, “Praising China’s transparency, sir?”
Fauci shot back, “No. No, I’m not — I’m not talking about China,” Fauci said. “You asked me about Tedros.”
The questioning continued: “The World Health Organization was praising China for its transparency and leadership on their response to the pandemic.”
“You know, I can’t comment on that because — I mean, I don’t have any viewpoint into it,” Fauci responded. “I mean, I don’t — I don’t even know what your question is.”The media continually wants to transform Fauci into a political figure. While WHO officials like Ghebreyesus have to praise China to keep the peace, the American media seems to relish the opportunity.
The questions asked of Fauci on a near-daily basis seem to be more about politics than his specialities like medicine or epidemiology. Seeing as how he was being dragged into issues that aren’t his to comment on, Fauci did the polite and correct thing: he just walked away.
