President Donald Trump on Monday said the government’s top pandemic fighter, Dr. Anthony Fauci, is a “disaster” – and possibly an “idiot” – as he claimed that Americans are “tired of” Covid-19.

“People are tired of Covid,” Trump said in a call with the staff of his reelection campaign against former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee.

“People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots, all these idiots who got it wrong,” Trump said on the call.

Trump also claimed that “every time [Fauci] goes on television there’s always a bomb,” an apparent reference to Fauci’s media appearances, which included him telling CBS’s “60 Minutes” on Sunday night that he was “absolutely not” surprised that Trump himself caught the coronavirus.

But Trump also offered an explanation for why he has not fired Fauci as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, despite his unhappiness with him.

“There’s a bigger bomb if you fire him,” Trump said. “This guy’s a disaster.”

The president at another point called Fauci a “nice” man, but in a backhanded way.

“He’s been here for about 350 years,” Trump said of Fauci, who is 79 years old.

Fauci is a civil servant who, under the law, cannot be directly fired by the president. And Fauci could appeal any dismissal ordered by the president through the political appointees who oversee him.

Trump also blasted Fauci on Twitter.

  1. Is this really what Trump needs now weeks to the election? He doesn’t seem to stand a very good chance but is he gonna look to make it worse? To satisfy his ego? For the record; I am a Trump supporter but he is not acting rationally. He will hurt his chances at the polls.

  2. A president of the United States just declared that we the people have no need or right to be protected from a deadly pandemic. That the science and medical experts are idiots and he, who among other things suggested injection of disinfectant as a cure, is a genius. Our very lives are at risk, out with this incompetent lying degenerate!

  3. President Donald Trump is 100% so absolutley correct and on the ball as always, because Fauci has caused more misery and destruction in 37 years than just about anyone else could possibly inflict in 350 years

  4. So because Trump called him a “nice guy” and that “I like him” the headline of the article is “Trump Blasts Fauci”? And I have not been able to find the alleged “disaster” word in the video clip.

  5. rt , you are the last person to talk about “the science and medical experts ” on this forum. It is you who disgustingly compared Dr Scott Atlas to Megelle elsewhere on this forum. You better shut up,

  6. Huju: The reason Moishelah is in galus is that on one wants him in EY so we are fortunate enough to have him as the resident uninformed troll. He really makes me miss Reb Yosef who I hope is doing well.

  7. Yeah, the guy who said there’s no chance of it getting to the US and the flu is worse, and don’t wear a mask, and how the CDC’s list of symptoms are always 5 months behind the rest of the world’s common knowledge has been what Trump said. And the CDC site is still not up to date. Sorry.

  8. Fakehadorah, how come you yourself are still living in America and not in Israel? I guess Sachnut disqualified you by gauging your low IQ embarrassing comments on this site.

    huju, thank you on complementing on my posts of being worthy of pay. Unlike brainwashed Marxists like you I am more informed because i do not get my talking points from the Ministry Of Truth.
