The Quote of the Day

Dr. Fauci:

Whenever you walk into the White House, or to a congressional chamber, tell yourself that “this might be the last time that I’m walking into that place … I might have to say something that’s going to get people to not like what they’re hearing, and might have them not ask me back.”

So, would I rather be on the right side of the truth, or would I like to be asked back because I told somebody something that they wanted to hear? … And … though over many years now — through Reagan, through George H.W. Bush, through Clinton, through George W. Bush, through Obama and now even through President Trump — I have had to, more often than you would think, tell people things that they did not want to hear. And I’m still here.

    I have endless admiration and respect for Dr Fauci. He has not compromised his profession in spite of being assaulted constantly by the lies and insults from the Trump administration. And in the end, his words will be still true, while Trump’s will stand as lies.

    I wonder if duct tape is “N 95”? Either way, it would work. If he can’t open his mouth, he can’t spread it, right? Except for his “changer”, they need a full PPE suit with reserve air to do that.

    Groupthink ?

    Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that occurs within a group of people in which the desire for harmony or conformity in the group results in an irrational or dysfunctional decision-making outcome. Cohesiveness, or the desire for cohesiveness, in a group may produce a tendency among its members to agree at all costs.[1] This causes the group to minimize conflict and reach a consensus decision without critical evaluation.[2][3]

    I’ll bet a lot of staffers and Secret Service people are thinking that too, but not because they might be fired.
