Elections have consequences – in this case, good ones.

Don’t ever let anyone tell you that Democrats and Republicans are the same, ever again.

“I can tell you I take no pleasure at all in being in a situation of contradicting the president, so it was really something that you didn’t feel you could actually say something and there wouldn’t be repercussions about it.”

Was that Fauci speaking or Birx?

Here’s Dr. Fauci in an earlier career move. I mean, he obviously knows his science.

Birx has moved on to a cushy gig in Hollywood – she’s now going to be to the go-to actor when a scene calls for a potted plant standing in the corner.

“It is very clear there were things that were said — be it regarding things like hydroxychloroquine and other things like that — that really was uncomfortable, because they were not based on scientific fact,” Fauci said.

“And don’t even get me started on Dr. Atlas,” Fauci continued. “He was all over the map.”

Let the “Trump is still not president” jokes begin.

I bet it is.

Trump should be charged with about 300,000 negligent homicides. There are several ex-federal-prosecutors who are making the case for it.

OT - but good for a chuckle. Who does he think he is that he has any input? Schumer needs to get the rules nailed down so Nancy can walk this over.

My only (and minor) complaint is that Dr. Fauci (and others) should substitute ‘truth’ for ‘science’, since that is what Republicans strove to obscure, and since too many of the deplorables hear the words ‘science’ or ‘scientific fact’ and immediately think they are being played in some manner.

You can’t always use the correct words when speaking to an illiterate crowd. You have to choose the words that have a greater impact. Just my opinion on ‘truth’ versus ‘science’.

Well it’s less than 2 weeks away, Dems need time to prepare a commanding prosecution that implicates many Repubs by association, the defense does deserve time to prepare one, and it’s best to give Biden time to get things underway with a full cabinet before revisiting this. It won’t be long, and well worth the brief delay.

Science is just one set of opinions among many. They may be fact-based and massively researched and verified opinions, but who are we to say that the moon really isn’t made of green cheese? Not I.

Fuck this poser! “Give us some time to protect ‘our guy’, won’t you?”

Schumer better not negotiate this. In fact, I say give them nothing and go as high and as far as you can while you have the opportunity.
