Latest Battle Cry

“Fire Dr. Fauci” — that’s the latest battle cry from Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and some of her “dingbat” Republican allies.

Throughout the horror of the past 15 months of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Fauci was the only voice of reason that was coming out of the Trump administration. In a time when the virus was being handled with an eye toward political expediency, Dr. Fauci saw the virus for what it was — just a virus. In his TV briefings he explained what we knew about the virus and how to best mitigate its transmission in clear, easy to understand language.

I’m sure Congresswoman Greene would much prefer that we all followed President Trump’s advice and took Lysol injections and Clorox enemas.

If representatives like Ms. Greene are the best that this country can elect, then the Lord help us.
