OOOooooo, I didn't know Fauci had been appointed as Biden's chief medical advisor. When did that happen?

We're really gonna take health advice from someone who hopes they die before they get old?

(speaking of old... this joke...)

More like:

Who is leading it doesn't matter as long as WHO isn't leading it,
Because they lied with China while people died.

The US normal response to a world epidemic is to aid the less fortunate countries in quelling the damage and danger.  A vaccine or even health is momentarily not considered a trophy just for the rich.

This pandemic will show the failure of Trump's leadership everywhere in the world, and leave the US a much higher hill to climb to compete with the large non-democratic governments for a stable world.  It will cost us.

Sorry, but I'm not going to wait for humanitarian reasons until a cryogenic distribution chain has been set up to deliver vaccines to every poor person in the world older than me.

It will, but that damage can be healed by a few presidencies of normal diplomacy. What might not be healable is the damage done to our sphere of economic influence by the withdrawal from the TPP and our replacement by China. Those type of deals tend to only get drafted once every generation or two and so the damage will be long-lasting.

I suspect that will come to be seen as the biggest geopolitcal blunder in America's history.

I am shocked Trump didn't fire Fauci then. Maybe he didn't know.

I'm not entirely sold on the idea that this was a particularly bad move by trump. I mean, what does the WHO actually do for the US for all that money? I think we should play a role in international charity, but if we're going to dump a lot of dollars into something, we should at least have some kind of access and influence.

Trump didn't withdraw from the WHO because the US public health community lacked sufficient influence; he withdrew because he couldn't personally dictate the entire policy and agenda of the WHO.

As long as the kids are alright then we won't get fooled again.  A lot of Trumpers are running around proclaiming "I don't want to get wise" and I can't explain to them that the song is over.  They better understand that we're not gonna take it and that sensation they feel is a lot more than just shakin all over.  There is no substitute for old red wine when it's your turn to be lucky, but if you want a real success story then you better move Heaven and Hell to make that bargain.

As far as when I'll be back I can't explain it.  I don't even know myself.

It was a while ago. I think Biden had only won the election twenty or thirty times when he announced that he was bringing Fauci back.
