Fauci & The Media Just Fell For Another Trap Laid By President Trump (VIDEO)
Since President Trump has announced he’s running for office he has employed the same tactic to fight the media because they fall for it every time.
President Trump will find a sacred cow say something they deem outlandish and in their outrage force the media to talk about the topic. We’ve seen this with immigration, fighting the media narrative, and in negotiations with Democrats. Though President Trump’s strong statements pundits and the media knee-jerk react which then forces them to cover the story to prove their knee-jerk reaction. Most of the time, they end up changing the narrative because President Trump has exposed them which is one reason why the press hates him so much.
Over the weekend President Trump laid another one of his notorious media traps and Fauci fell for it.
President Trump attacked the United States coronavirus death count saying it was exaggerated because of how the CDC determines what a “COVID death” is.
“The number of cases and deaths of the China Virus is far exaggerated in the United States because of @CDCgov’s ridiculous method of determination compared to other countries.” wrote President Trump. “Many of whom report, purposely, very inaccurately and low. “When in doubt, call it Covid.” Fake News!”

Well, that set off Dr. Fauci and during an interview with ABC News, he responded.
Fauci said, “The deaths are real deaths. All you need to do is go into the trenches, go to the hospitals, see what the health care workers are dealing with. They are under very stressed situations. In many areas of the country, the hospital beds are stretched. People are running out of beds, running out of trained personnel who are exhausted right now. That’s real. That’s not fake that’s real.”
NEW: Dr. Anthony Fauci responds to Pres. Trump’s morning tweet on COVID-19 related deaths: “The deaths are real deaths. All you need to do is go out into the trenches… that’s real, that’s not fake.” https://t.co/kKafPs2tFM pic.twitter.com/84ypgvOcl1

As usual, the press is not going to be able to help themselves but here’s what we do know, some states like Colorado report two death tolls. The state reports the CDC’s preferred method which is anyone that died that had COVID in their system when they died and they report those that died from complications of COVID. Below is a picture at the time of the writing of this post, notice you’ll see two death numbers, “Death Among Cases” and “Deaths Due to Covid-19,” you can click here to view the data yourself.
We aren’t’ trying to diminish the people that have lost their lives as a result of the virus but, the media’s knee-jerk reaction is going to cause them all sorts of trouble.
Dr. Fauci fell for it too, he could have brought this up, instead, he too gave a knee jerk reaction that could have serious implications.
Flordia is still trying to clean up their death toll after it was discovered a person that died in a motorcycle wreck was designated a COVID victim.
President Trump’s little bombshell is about to explode because the media just can’t help itself.
