The latest absurd conspiracy from the rightwing political entities is that Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, appointed to the position in 1984, is purposely trying to contradict President Trump in an effort to undermine him.

On Sept. 30, The New York Times printed an article documenting the cabal shared by 1.5 million email followers.

The president’s well-known antipathy to science is not something that can be tolerated during this pandemic. Fauci is one of the most sane and reasonable members of Trump’s advisors. Let’s hope that the president takes his advice. Fauci has our well-being at heart. He is not trying to undermine the president.
