"This is fresh air. Let's get back to my interview with Dr Anthony Fauci, who is now President Biden's chief medical advisor. He served on Trump's coronavirus task force. We spoke last night as part of a WH Y Y zoom event. If I remember correctly early on in some of the coronavirus press briefings. The people who were speaking weren't wearing masks, and sometimes we're standing pretty close together. Was that at Trump's direction, and did you ever feel vulnerable at any of those press briefings? Did you ever want to wear a mask? And be told or feel like you weren't allowed to. Well, you know, back then there was, I guess, and understandable Misperception that if you get tested every day that all of a sudden you were okay in the White House and you are not going to get infected. So at that point, not everyone and very few people were wearing a mask because in order to walk in the door of the White House, you had to get tested. Literally. Every day you walked in. Which was a good thing. But then what became clear from the super spreading event that did occur in the White House. Usually maybe Amy Cockney Barrett event. Yeah, right. Getting tested every day did not protect you from either getting infected air, infecting somebody else because the tests who are not 100%, and you could get tested and still be infected because of that window when the test Is not necessarily positive. So once it became clear that there was the possibility of a super spreader situation. Even though people were all getting tested. That's what it became very clear that we had to wear mask and at that point People like myself and Dr Bergson and Dr Redfield and Dr Hahn and others. We would be wearing masks there. But not everyone else was marrying mask and under those circumstances. Even if it was semi frowned upon to wear a mask. We still wore a mask, but it was on Lee after it became clear. Testing every day to get into the White House was not a shield against getting infected. What was your attitudes are the people who weren't wearing masks and they were putting you at risk by not wearing a mask. Yeah, well, my way around that was to wear a mask. Did you come across anyone in the Trump administration who believed that the Corona virus was a hoax, including Trump himself. No, no, I think everyone knew that This was a real phenomenon. Whatever they said publicly or not, I think virtually everybody that I came into contact with. Realized that this was a real phenomenon. Well, you ever pressured to say something that you knew wasn't true. And if so, How did how did you push back? Well, I think I mentioned to you and it's very clear. It's on the record. It's all recorded and TV that when something was said that I felt wasn't true, I did not hesitate to go to the microphone. And disagree or not necessarily at the microphone on TV. But when reporters asked me afterwards Did not hesitate to disagree. I didn't take any great pleasure out of disagreeing with the administration or with the president, but sometimes I had to do it so I never felt Situation where I could not say something I did always say what was on my mind. That disturbs some people sometimes, but that I felt I needed to do that. To preserve my integrity but also to give the correct message to the rest of the country. You've made it clear that there have been death threats like serious ones directed at you at your Children and your family. Um and I'm wondering if they ever coincided like if if they would spike. During periods. When Trump would, for instance, call you an idiot or when his trade advisor Peter Navarro would publish an op ed in U. S a today saying that you were wrong about everything that he spoke with you about that, you know, he Contact with you about Steve Bannon had had said that your head should be on a spike Did did you? Did you see threats against you rise during those periods of and you know, inflammatory and totally wrong. Kind of communication. Um, you know, I don't think it could be one toe one that every time something like that happened, there was a spike, but there certainly was not Just an even level of threats it would exacerbate when something was said publicly when I disagreed, and the press picked up on that. That I disagreed. So yes, there was ups and downs of threats. There always was a baseline level of threats, but you're absolutely correct that when certain circumstances arose. The intensity and the degree of threats would go up. We're listening to the interview I recorded last night with Dr Anthony Fauci, who is now President Biden's chief medical advisor. In addition to remaining the director of Ni at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Position he's held since 1984. After we take a short break. We'll hear how he was the target of AIDS activists early in the AIDS epidemic, then befriended and worked with them, leading to medical reforms that are benefiting us today during the covert pandemic. I'm Terry Gross, and this is fresh air..

"But you know what she claims She basically came. You gave a parallel stream of data to him. That was not in keeping with the data that the president was getting from Fauci and Burkes is. Is there any truth to that? Or how do you respond to that? Well, Here's the point number one. It's really stunning. It's absurd that someone would be personally offended that the president United States got information from someone other than one single person, which in this case is Dr Burke. He's not in charge and a funnel for information. She doesn't have a monopoly on the information people in the White House people in the administration outside the White House. Experts who are outside the administration. All we're giving information to the president, United States and that's the most important thing to do when you're trying to solve a crisis is to make sure you have enough information. That's point number one. So anyone who is somehow shocked is sort of a bizarre, delusional and you know, I just don't even know how the ways how to interpret that kind of quest statement. I don't know why she's shocked at that. She is not in charge of all the information that eventually gets to the president's period Number two. It's a vicious, sick lie. That she would imply or say that I gave false information, misleading information, non mainstream information to the President, United States That's an absolute lie. If I weren't the public of official it would be deformation or slander whatever the legal term is, But of course it's not because I'm a public official, or I WASI on. You know that that doesn't happen in that way. But that is just the despicable comments. She should be on TV apologizing for that statement because I never gave anything to the president or to anyone else in the White House. It wasn't data. That wasn't my best interpretation of data to get the right health care policy since I was the only health care policy expert in the room. I'm not a 40 year or 30 year bureaucrats sitting protected in in the government. I'm busy being challenged and a high level academic job. I'm used to having smart, knowledgeable people challenge what I say. I don't get offended if a challenge what I say the answer to someone challenging what you say is not slander them. Ortio sort of destroy the reputation. The answer is make sure you know what the hell you're talking about. Okay? No. The day to be sophisticated, understand the new new data don't just sit there and be insulted that Oh, my God. Somebody else has a different idea. That's one of the reasons I was brought there. You know, so I think that's sort of stunning, really. And you know that that kind of comments you should be on TV apologizing for that, because that's just an outright lie. If you think that I gave him false information, in fact, Wasn't consultation by the way, not just with reading literature and everything. But I was in consultation at least every other day with world's best researchers who were doing the research and those researches work specifically at Stanford University. However, universities all over the world people were putting in input and you know if you can't if you can't deal with that there's something wrong with you. The story isn't about some single person. Giving input. The story is doing the best. We all could help the nation. Really. I was there to help the country. People don't appreciate that. You know that that's their problem. I mean, you know, the last point is that I find bizarre if I can go on. I find this very strange is that I see these people like Dr Burkes trying to distance themselves somehow from what was done for whatever their own reason is. I mean, maybe it's because she's sensitive because she was caught breaking her own rules and hanging out with a multi generational family over the holidays. I don't know. I mean, that's sort of embarrassing to just tell everybody. They cannot be with their family over the holidays, but sometimes she can Let's not go into that. But what we should do is realize that the policies that were implemented all across the country with some very small number of exceptions were the policy that were done by the state governors and those policies were the exact policies that doctor's Berks and Fauci were recommending the exact policies for months and months, And that means restriction of businesses restrictions on groups. Masks wearing of certain businesses being closed in person schools being limited or closed. That was what they said to do. It was done. Acting dictate of the governors. And so some has the recommendation that the results of those policy in there Well, no, but here's the point if they're unhappy with those policy results Then they were wrong. They're criticizing their own policies. I came in and said, I pointed out that when your health care policy person which a leader is supposed to be designing policy, not just stopping a virus at all costs. We have to consider everything that happened. There were massive terms from the lockdowns, not just economic people died. Families were destroyed. Children are harmed. People's families are destroyed. This is important. The implication off the policy is important, not just stopping the virus at all costs. And so these things were what should be considered. They never considered that. Came in. That was the first time these things were being considered. That's one of the reasons I was brought in in August. And you sort of touched on it, But I just wanna have it clear her and I so appreciate you joining us. Dr. Alice was being with Dr Scott Atlas. There's clearly a attempt here to distance themselves, not just from the policy from the present himself, Anthony Fauci In his first press conference for president, Biden said that he was very uncomfortable with many of the things that the president did, and said When you were in the room. Not when the cameras were on. Not when the microphones were on. But when you were actually advising the president, or you were discussing with your colleagues, Dr Bergson, Dr Fauci about the policies Did they ever voice that to you? Did they ever raise objections? Did they ever say listen, We shouldn't be saying this. We shouldn't be doing that at any point. Did they tell the president that they were uncomfortable with some of the things that he was doing or saying Well, you have to realize I didn't come there until August. So they were there for eight months. Maybe before I even walked in advising the president, so I don't know what they're what they're issue is. I mean, I'll answer it This way, though. I never spoke about politics one bit. Was not a political appointee at all. I was there to bring in the fast and the best health policy analysis from those facts. That's what I was there. I was never thinking about who the president was. I never cared what the political issues were. The political issues were other people's concerns. And this is what happens. Again in Washington. We get these people who are in their bureaucratic jobs for 30 40 years. They have friends in the media. They're playing politics. They're sitting there it brilliant that they could be interviewed on stage. I never want to be on the stage. I was there to just give advice. Would sort of thrust upon the stage to answer questions. Okay, that's okay. But I mean these people they seem very concerned with who's the president? What the political implication of what they said and did were they were there. They're accountable for what they did. Their policies were instituted. If you don't like the results of the policy than that their problem Yeah, And I think it is telling the doctor Fauci, As I said, his legacy There is a bureaucrat in Washington, D C stretches all the way back to the late eighties on he's still around for this latest administration, Dr Scott outlets you got out of that town the second you had the opportunity, and I think that speaks volumes. Doctor Alice. Thank you so much for joining where? Sadly out of time, but we look forward to talking with you against her. Okay. Thanks for having me be..
