This man is not a partisan hack by any measure. This is a man who has been Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984 under Presidents Reagan, H.W. Bush, Clinton, W. Bush, Obama, and now Trump. This man has credibility.

he was in the vanguard of US research into the AIDS epidemic...i knew some of the AIDS/SIDA researchers at the Pasteur Institute in Paris...the French are not given to praise and they really are amazing with infectious disease research...despite that...they admired Fauci's work far more than the news grabber Gallo

He goes with the flow. He has big credibity issues after endorsing that non doctor dude running shit in Africa.

Fauci works for Bill Gates. We never would have heard of him if Trump didn't put him in the spotlight. Now we all know more about this weasel AND see how Trump completely co-opts those around him to get the job done. Pure brilliance.

Trump has said all sorts of complimentary things about Hillary in the past, donated over $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation, and had Bill and Hillary as guests at his wedding to Melania. See pic of the four of them together: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/features/trumps-wedding-melania-bill-hill-880088

Of course Fauci knows how to massage politicians' egos. He's been in this position through SIX Presidents!

I agree, he's kept his job so long, he must know how to ride with the current. Besides, that love letter was about how well she did after her "recent illness." (maybe when she had the blood clot or whatever it was?). That sounds like a doctorly thing to say to a patient "Wow, you are doing SUPER! You'll be doing everything soon!" but in a more old fashioned style.

Exactly. There was another letter somebody dug up from Wikileaks, but it just sounded like more of the same. He can get more done by making nice to everybody who has any power.

The relationship between a bureaucrat underling and real estate billionaire to corrupt politicians is not equivalent. Stop making these false equivalencies. If you try to play bureaucratic politics you don't become absolved of responsibility for how you played it.

Doesn't matter to me if he likes Trump or not. He does a good job of defending Trump while also sort of translating for him to make Trumps message more understandable and palatable at the press conferences.

Even if he doesn't like Trump, he serves him faithfully and shows him the respect that a President deserves. That is respectable.
