(TheLibertyRevolution.Com)- Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevent’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on Tuesday that the president wasn’t responsible for the delayed testing of coronavirus patients. Instead, Fauci explained that the problem was caused by a “technical glitch” that the president simply couldn’t control.
Speaking to Hugh Hewitt, Fauci explained that it was a “complicated series of multiple things that conflated that just, you know, went the wrong way.”
“One of them was a technical glitch that slowed things down in the beginning. Nobody’s fault. There weren’t any bad guys there. It just happened.”
Hewitt, probing further, asked if the glitch “or anything about the production of the test” was the president’s faulty. “Or actually, let me put it more broadly, would every president have run into the same problem?” Hewitt asked.
Fauci responded, “Oh, absolutely. This has nothing to do with anybody’s fault, certainly not the president’s fault.”
Well, that’s not the message the Democrats have been pushing for the last week!
The media and high-ranking Democrats have chosen to politicize the coronavirus outbreak at every turn, attacking the president and his administration for the small number of people who have been tested for the COVID-19 virus. Critics of the opponent include several Democratic governors but also include former Vice President Joe Biden who made the shocking claim that the president rejected test kits offered by the World Health Organization.
During a Tuesday press conference, however, health officials from the Trump administration flatly denied refusing tests.
Adm. Brett Giroir, the assistant secretary for health at the Department of Health and Human Services, explained that nobody ever offered a test that the government refused.
“This was a research-grade test that was not approved, not submitted to the FDA…there was a small number that we have greatly surpassed in a very short period of time.”
If a test was not submitted to the Food and Drug Administration, then there is no way for the American government to know if it is safe.
And, for all those who claim the president isn’t solving the problem, State Department official Deborah Birx announced that the United States has developed its own high-quality test that will not result in any false negatives or positives.
