Rebuffed: Watch Trumpís Own Medical Expert Fact-Check Him At WH Coronavirus Briefing | MSNBCJul 02, 2021
It may be easy to forget at this point, but one of President Trump's many attempts to undermine the Free Press largely included ending the 50-year bipartisan tradition of White House press
briefings, that's a time when the White House faces journalistic inquiries to inform the nation for more than half. last year, the Trump White House did not hold a single
briefing, obviously, in contrast to these now daily briefings in this age of
coronavirus, which also introduces a new tradition that we want to talk about right now,
experts who they provide key
facts while the president does not and sometimes President Trump does worse by spreading outright misinformation that is then corrected by
experts sometimes in front of the president's face. it is often led by dr.
Anthony Fauci whose absence from Monday's briefing was widely noted many Americans even took to social media to ask where is Dr pouchy well now yes ouchy was in today's hearing but all this has followed a very interesting period between dr. Fauci and the president because the doctor did a hard-hitting interview in which he told the scientific journal that he knows Donald Trump spreads misinformation and added, let's be real, what do you want me to do? He stressed that the best he can do is correct Trump. I don't want to act tough, I just want to get the
facts out, and The Times reports that such a direct approach to the lectern of the briefing that contradicts Trump is frustrating the president.

The tension comes amid larger battles over when to send Americans back to work. and donald
trumpgiving untested drug ideas people should try right now that actually led to a man dying this week now in a startling moment with of course the nation
watching live we saw dr. Fauci stepped up to correct dangerous misinformation by Donald Trump recommending a potential drug for the virus. There were questions about the use of this drug against malaria. Those questions on Alvin were fine. I don't know, that was resolved. I could say it will be distributed. Look, I feel how the expression says that we have to lose, are you going to use the drug that someone says from an anecdotal point of view, not entirely proven, but it can have some effect, there are those who are inclined to the point of giving hope and saying, give that person the option to have access to that drug and then you have the other group which is my job as a scientist to say my job is ultimately to prove beyond a doubt that a drug is not only safe but actually works doctor foul Qi is pushing the science on the twist no matter who's in the room to paraphrase sean carter's message to liars the filthy doctor chi's name must be just the facts while the rest of you just fit the facts some put words together just t A match while this doctor puts science aside, you guys suit that with me, is Eugene Robinson, a columnist for The Washington Post and someone interested in empirical truth.
His opinion about the lack of the royal doctor. of this crisis is telling us what is happening day by day what the situation really is what we should believe what we know what is a matter of science what is a matter of hope and he is so you know we know him I've known him since it's been so long since the reagan administration and it's been a trusted voice and continues to be a trusted voice and i think it's essential as this administration is launching any kind of coordination in response to this threat dr. Falchi I think it is absolutely critical because he is the great communicator here Donald Trump believes that he is the only communicator and we know that he does not like to be contradicted in public we know that not in fact, he likes to be contradicted in private he does anything certainly not because of the people who work for him we have seen reports that he is upset about this but I know President Trump understands television and therefore has decided that we will have these shows televised daily these daily episodes of the reality show and i and i am gambling and hopefully he understands that dr.
Falchi is essential for that and then not to have when when when dr. Falchi is not that there is an even more dangerous gene than before I lose you I want to play a little of this exclusive NBC report with a discussion with the widow of someone you mentioned died this week after trying the drug that Donald just launched Trump over there take a look did you see the president's press conference where did you hear yes yes we thought a lot actually and then what and then what did you look for chloroquine I had a good taste are you doing we're done we're done time but I wanted to let you talk about it briefly Jean no it's a tragedy, right, i'm a vegan, a man died because he heard about this drug that the president was promoting as a miracle cure. miracle people don't go out and then try to have their say and take chloroquine you can really hurt yourself even if you get pharmaceutical grade chloroquine it has side effects so for some people it can be dangerous we have no idea what the dosage It would be that this is the information we need, for that reason, Dr. pouchy is so essential all right and we wanted to get your thoughts on this Pulitzer Prize winning Washington Post writer Eugene Robinson thank you so much hey this is Melvin from MSNBC you can
