.MaddowBlog: White House attacks on Fauci described as 'nuclear grade bananas'

The more Fauci's reality-based assessments prove inconvenient, the more the Team Trump finds it necessary to discredit Fauci.

the anti-Fauci research.There are a handful of relevant angles to this. Right off the bat, it's worth appreciating just how absurd the circumstances are. As Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.)notedover the weekend,"Don't let this feel normal. It's nuclear grade bananas to have White House staff sending reporters opposition research on their own top infectious disease doctor in the middle of a worsening pandemic that has already killed 130,000."

Seeking refuge in US, children fleeing danger are expelled How the GOP is trying to use Kanye West Fact check: At briefing, Trump continues to mislead on coronavirus, mail-in voting and Beirut

Making matters worse, Team Trump doesn't appear to be spending its time wisely. White House officials have the resources and interest to smear the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, but it doesn't have a national testing strategy, a PPE distribution plan, or any kind of strategy to re-open schools.

But perhaps most important is coming to terms with the rationale behind the anti-Fauci smear campaign. There's fresh reporting, for example, that Trump is"galled" by the fact that the infectious disease expert has a higher approval rating than he does.

It doesn't help that the president is reflexively hostile toward experts as part of his antagonistic attitude toward governing. (For more along these lines,see my book.)Most importantly, however, Fauci has become an impediment to the White House's plans. Trump and his team effectively want to stop fighting the coronavirus pandemic and start encouraging Americans to pretend everything has returned to normal. Fauci and other experts have adopted a far more responsible line, which obviously undercuts the message emanating from the West Wing.

And so, the calculus is simple: the more Fauci's reality-based assessments prove inconvenient, the more the Team Trump finds it necessary to discredit Fauci. The White House wants the public to stop listening to the authorities and start listening to the president.

MaddowBlog What this man was telling us is what might have saved Trump. but Trump was to dull to understand that. Just like Yates. She tried to warn him about Flynn, Trump would not listen and fired her. America is, not a corporation, it is the US GOVERNMENT.
