Fauci: No school this fall Trump thinks the virus will disappear

Love him, hate him, believe him or not, CDC’s Dr. Anthony Fauci said Tuesday that he doesn’t believe that opening schools up to students this fall is a good idea considering that no available vaccine is yet in place. Funny. I’ve been thinking that since at least a month ago. Based on people with whom I’ve spoken from different school districts, however, not every district is already planning for that no-school scenario; and you have to wonder why not? Over in the Twilight Zone, President Trump said last Friday that we may not even need a vaccine for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. “This is going to go away without a vaccine. It’s going to go away, and we’re not going to see it again, hopefully, after a period of time.” The president has repeatedly said that he doesn’t drink or do drugs. “There are some viruses or flus that came, and they went for a vaccine, and they never found the vaccine,” Trump said last Friday. “And they’ve disappeared. They never showed up again. They die, too, like everything else. They say it’s going to go — that doesn’t mean this year — doesn’t mean it’s going to be gone, frankly, by fall or after the fall. But eventually it’s going to go away. The question is will we need a vaccine. At some point it’s going to probably go away by itself. If we had a vaccine that would be very helpful.” I have no clue either what he’s talking about other than how to convince people to fear nothing and get back to shopping. Forget the fact that the White House itself is now apparently infected with the virus after the vice president’s press secretary tested positive last week for COVID-19, as did one of the president’s personal valets, as did at least 11 Secret Service agents. Still, this virus pandemic is overblown, goes the Republican talking point, followed b y cries to “open up the damn economy;” meanwhile, Democrats dream up ways to use the virus to maximum effect to unseat Trump in November. CNN is in the Trump camp, while Fox News continues to give the president the TV version of a Monica. Funny, though, even Fox News apparently can’t keep the president happy, as he recently lauded two of Fox’s competitors, One America News and Newsmax. If it were me, based on Trump’s recent comments about this deadly virus going ...
