The packed crowd at a South Florida airport erupted into a chant early Monday: “Fire Fauci! Fire Fauci!”
President Trump let the chorus grow louder for almost 20 seconds, turning to both sides as if pondering the request that he dismiss Anthony S. Fauci, the country’s leading infectious-disease expert. Finally, he responded.
“Don’t tell anybody, but let me wait until a little bit after the election,” Trump said, his supporters cheering almost immediately. “I appreciate the advice.”
Trump’s suggestion that he might fire Fauci marks another escalation in his months-long feud with the public health expert over the president’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. It came at a rally where the president defied local coronavirus regulations, as the pandemic continues to worsen across the United States, endangering the president’s reelection hopes.
Yeah, this guy is literally the guy who would fire the leading expert on pandemics, during a fucking pandemic.
By the way, this is what Joe Biden said concerning Trump’s remarks about firing Dr. Fauci.

And that pretty clearly defines the choices in this election.
