We’re all in COVID-19 together, but that doesn’t mean we have to believe and praise the Chinese government.
Sure, maybe you don’t ridicule the Chinese response at the time it’s being crafted, but you can certainly criticize it. You can maybe mumble a “whatever” through gritted teeth at the lying of the communist government in Beijing, but you don’t have to pretend it’s not lying.
This seems to have been forgotten among members of the media who are showing unvarnished admiration for how a wholly tyrannical government that hid the existence of coronavirus from the world for an extended period of time — a mistake that might have caused up to 95 percent of the cases worldwide, according to one study — says it controlled COVID-19 through despotic measures.
Note that word “says.” It’s because we’re not in a position to necessarily trust what China’s leaders say. How many cases did they bury? Have they really turned the corner? The person who takes their position at face value is always the kind of person at face value for an opportunistic reason.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has likely dealt with more than a few of these people over these past few weeks. Fauci isn’t exactly an uncritical supporter of what the president says, as anyone who’s watched the White House’s daily coronavirus news briefings knows.
However, when a reporter asked Wednesday about the World Health Organization praising the Chinese government for its response to the crisis, Fauci had little patience.
President Donald Trump answered first, saying, “It’s been very unfair. … I have heard for years that that is very much biased toward China, so I don’t know. Doctor, do you want to you — do you want me to get you into this political mess?”
“No, I don’t want you to do that. But I will,” Fauci said with a laugh.
He stepped to the podium and said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was an “outstanding person,” adding, “I mean, obviously, over the years, anyone who says that the WHO has not had problems has not been watching the WHO. But I think, under his leadership, they’ve done very well. He has been all over this. I was on the phone with him a few hours ago leading a WHO call.”
“Praising China’s transparency, sir?” the reporter said.
“No. No, I’m not — I’m not talking about China,” Fauci said. “You asked me about Tedros.”
The reporter then said, “The World Health Organization was praising China for its transparency and leadership on their response to the pandemic.”
“You know, I can’t comment on that because — I mean, I don’t have any viewpoint into it,” Fauci responded. “I mean, I don’t — I don’t even know what your question is.”
He then walked away from the podium dismissively.
Enter Trump: “Welcome to the group.”
