  1. joetv, By the way the hyperlink you have in your comment produced an anti-virus warning……Fauci is none of the things you write. He is an infectious disease expert…of which coronavirus is one. He has done extensive research to treat and prevent infectious diseases. He has advised 6 presidents. The terms you used to describe Fauci fit Trump very nicely…thank you very much. 🙂
