“Dr. Fauci navigated the delicate balance between his obligation to the American people as one of our most respected physician-scientists and holding on to his job in a federal government whose leader doesn’t take kindly to independent thought that potentially upstages his own. Dr. Fauci not only survived multiple appearances on the national stage with Trump, as the task force morphed into charade, but he even emerged as a popular folk hero, all the while maintaining his status as a respected medical authority.
Despite having ample opportunity to confront the president on his misinformation, Dr. Fauci focused his unwavering attention on mitigation of the virus, refuting Trump’s often puzzling and sometimes harmful pronouncements, without even having to directly acknowledge them.”
Michael Miyamoto is a cardiologist.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “Dealing with a bad boss: lessons from Dr. Fauci.”
