Let’s have a look at one of the characters who whispered regularly in Trump’s ear at the inception of the COVID crisis:
Donald Trump’s fervent supporter and former trade adviser Peter Navarro slipped off the rails in a ridiculous interview with Steve Bannon, recounting how he urged one-time White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney to “strangle that [Dr. Anthony] Fauci baby in his crib.”
He told Trump’s former White House strategist that he urged Trump twice to fire Fauci, but “I’m like … the economics guy,” and the president had “all this stuff going on,” Navarro recounted.
Navarro said he told Mulvaney: “This is like Churchill with Hitler — strangle that Fauci baby in his crib.”
Remember when Trump said if they stop the testing, there will be less cases? “Tongue in cheek”, he insists. Oh, that amazing conservative humor. Don’t you just love it?
