As the COVID war rages on, the White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci finds more and more arguments being lobbed his way about how they are fighting the battles. With every zinger that gets fired in at him, he must deflect or guide the asker away. Never tackle the question head-on. It’s amazing how quick he has gotten at this over the years. Not many could do this.
Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy is an expert at tossing these questions out. When these two battle back and forth it’s outstanding.
Doocy: “You advised the president about the possibility of new testing requirements for people coming in to this country, does that include everybody?”
Fauci: “The answer is yes.”
Doocy: “What about … these border crossers?”
Fauci: “That’s a different issue.”
Exchanges like this are nearly comical. While Fauci is talking about title 42, and how it will affect immigrants looking to come to this country from specific countries. Unfortunately, it is also only focused on those coming with a passport via plane, train, or ship. No accounting for illegal immigrants and where they came from.
By asking this question of Fauci, it would seem as if Doocy is trying to play games or poke fun at Fauci. In all actuality, he is pointing out the holes in the logic of these kinds of restrictions on American citizens as well as those looking to even visit here legally. This is a drastic overreach by the government and something we, as Americans, need to be worried about.
The very idea of not being willing to tackle the exception being given due to the unenforceability of this idea is absurd. We already have enough laws and situations not being enforced upon many illegals because the government doesn’t know about them. But they won’t enforce Title 42 on the ones they do know about, instead turning a blind eye to them. Granted the discussion of them turning a blind eye to things is another conversation for another day.
As Fauci un-comedically jokes of mandates and pushes the Omicron variant as the end of times, he is a busy man. Unfortunately for many of us, he is largely busy finding horrific ideas and ways to implement them into our everyday lives. These changes are not only largely destructive to the American way of life, but many also make the idea of eliminating the COVID concerns even more difficult.
Then, when you see people like President Joe Biden or House Speaker Nancy Pelosi doing the exact opposite of what Fauci or other organizations are pushing for in terms of COVID protocols, it becomes even more difficult to get the rest of the population to go along with it. This, in turn, is making the previously mocked Republican-led states like Texas and Florida much more popular. Especially with those who are looking for less government control and oversight.
As the people flock to these states, the Democrats are slowly learning that the people are tired of their progressive politics. The ‘do as I say and not as I do, attitudes are a lot harder to hide in this instant information age. As people are starting to catch dirtier information and share it, it is already hard enough to get into politics, now it will get even harder to stay, too. Perhaps it will soon be time for him to go, and maybe we can get someone in there who can easily explain things to the American people?
