President Trump let his finger slip while retweeting a call to fire Dr. Anthony Fauci. Anti-vaccine activists didn’t waste any time gaining #FireFauci the #1 trending spot on Twitter.
The argument circles Fauci’s support of vaccinations and Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai, a controversial scientist pushing claims that a vitamin regime can prevent and treat the coronavirus.
David Harris, a conservative political activist, reinforces his faith in President Trump, spreading the #FireFauci message.
Anyone else grateful that we have this man leading our country right now?
I am! We have faith in you President @realDonaldTrump!
You built an amazing economy in your first 3 years in office, and you will rebuild it again!!!

DeAnna Lorraine, a conservative politician states Fauci has spent a long time working under political administrators… too long to sit comfortably with Lorriane.
The fact that Fauci has worked for six Presidents is supposed to mean exactly what?
If you can survive six different political administrations, it just means you are willing to shift & bend whichever way the wind blows.
Honest people don't survive that long in DC.#FireFauci

Dr. Shiva was also quick to jump on board, not only attacking Fauci but also making sure to mention the Global Vaccine Action Plan.
It’s worse than I shared. Fauci is on the Leadership Council of the Global Vaccine Action Plan started by @gatesfoundation. Who authorized him to join this “collaboration?” This is how the people we never elected create Health Policy to force Mandated Medicine. #FireFauci. pic.twitter.com/euk97B5O0J

Liberals seem quick to forgive Fauci, respecting his apology.
Fauci screwed up horribly Sunday.
And then with humility and grace he took total ownership of it in front of the entire country.
He didn’t release a statement. He stood before the country.
The #FireFauci crowd is wrong.

Others are recognizing Trump may be trying to reinforce his conservative following by jumping on the #FireFauci bandwagon.
Trump’s so fuckin transparent. He’s debating whether to #FireFauci only because he’s getting more press than him… It’s been the same broken record for the past 3 yrs… Fauci’s only mistake was being the smart one in a room with clowns to the left of him and jokers to his right

Marco Rubio, the U.S. Senator for Florida, tries another approach by stating Fauci is not the only one who has made a mistake during this time.
#FireFauci? For what?
3 things true
1.Govt of #China did & continues to mislead own people & world
2.Most nations & govts at various levels in U.S. including Fed Govt reacted slow because didn’t want to harm economy or be alarmists
3.Can’t change past but can avoid repeating it

Which side to choose? That’s for you to decide. However, the World Health Organization continues to support vaccinations and even estimated the vaccines have prevented over 10 million deaths from 2010 to 2015.
