Hmmm:

I know my position on Fauci is an unpopular one, but he needs to knock this off. Whenever he waffles and equivocates like this he lends Trump credibility for everything he says—and Trump’s blatherings are heard by ten times more people than Fauci’s next-day corrections. On a net basis, Fauci is doing more harm than good unless he stands up to Trump more forthrightly and consistently.
