Dr. Anthony Fauci says staying closed for too long could cause ‘irreparable damage’
“I don’t want people to think that any of us feel that staying locked down for a prolonged period of time is the way to go,” Fauci said during an interview with CNBC’s Meg Tirrell on “Halftime Report.”
He said the U.S. had to institute severe measures because Covid-19 cases were exploding then. “But now is the time, depending upon where you are and what your situation is, to begin to seriously look at reopening the economy, reopening the country to try to get back to some degree of normal.”
Thank you President Trump.
Sounds like Pharmci has had some wall-to-wall counseling.
Maybe he’ll issue an Executive Order....heh...
I don’t know if he has the Constitutional authority but he can certainly get on the bully pulpit shame them & encourage freedom of religion\civil rights lawsuits.

God Bless President Trump!
Love the guy.
Acts just like a leader.
This whole flaming dumpster fire mess is going to be bulldozed off the edge of the carrier by September, maybe sooner. It will all be forgotten, the same way that Russia Russia Russia, and Trump's Ukraine phone call, and Brett Kavanaugh are now forgotten.

I know that a plurality of UMC clergy are left-of-center, but the COVID Panic has demonstrated to me that the UMC leadership is part of the Liberal Ruling Elite. What did it for me was learning from my church's Youth Ministry Director that the Resident Bishop was telling our churches not to send snail mail--because envelopes get licked.
Methodism was founded as a reaction to an out-of-touch state church. Now it is part of the Establishment. It frets about accommodating LGBTQ concerns--but is silent when people like our Governor talk about legalized infanticide.
He’s exercising his constitutional authority and duty to defend our first amendment rights.
