Well, in case you were worried Dr. Anthony Fauci had too much influence.
According to the Washington Examiner:
The country’s leading infectious diseases expert and key member of the White House coronavirus task force says he has not briefed the president on the coronavirus pandemic in more than two months.
In an interview with the Financial Times, Dr. Anthony Fauci explained that his reputation for not “sugar-coating things” was probably responsible for his disappearance from TV interviews.
In March and April, Fauci’s appearances at the regular White House briefings turned him into a media sensation as he delivered no-nonsense updates on the spread of the disease, even as President Trump was predicting the worst was over.
But now, he says he has not seen the president at the White House since June 2 and that he has not briefed Trump in at least two months, although he is “sure” his messages are passed along.
“I have a reputation, as you probably have figured out, of speaking the truth at all times and not sugar-coating things,” he said. “And that may be one of the reasons why I haven’t been on television very much lately.”
