VT: We read, days ago, from the right wing news sphere that 60,000 Americans have died of influenza in 2020. We investigated. Michigan has no deaths listed at all and across the US, there hasn’t been a single pediatric flu death and no adults listed by any state health department. IN fact, there have been no influenza outbreaks in the US whatsoever.
Lies have gone that far to cover for Trump’s murders.

Anthony Fauci has run the National Institutes of Health’s infectious diseases agency since Ronald Regan was president and has played key roles in virtually every public health intervention and policy since then.

Some good news to start the morning!👇🏻

For months, the White House largely disregarded Fauci’s advice. Trump, his allies and right-wing media painted the soft-spoken Brooklyn native as a villain.

Crowds at Trump rallies chanted “Fire Fauci!” Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon said Fauci should be executed and his head placed on a pike on the White House grounds.
But Fauci has kept a relentless pace trying to correct the country’s coronavirus course.
“Each day is different,” Fauci, who turns 80 this month, told HuffPost in an interview on the day before Thanksgiving. “It’s just, you know, drinking out of a firehose trying to keep ahead of everything that’s going on.”
The night before, he’d been awake until around 11 p.m. sorting through a mountain of email until he was too tired to continue. “I get like over a thousand emails a day and when they screen it, they screen it down to those few hundred that I have to deal with,” he said. “Then you have a day that is wall-to-wall, literally.”
He was back up at 5:10 a.m. on Wednesday, facing a day with a mere 20 minutes of unscheduled time. He expected to lose that break as new business arose over the course of the day. read more…
