Dr. Anthony Fauci held his breath for months with Donald Trump, but he's now fully exhaled and is having a hard time hiding his glee over the change in administrations.
The infectious disease guru made it clear at the White House coronavirus briefing Thursday ... SCIENCE RULES!!
The good doc made it clear ... there were times working with Trump when he felt uncomfortable -- fact is, you could see it all over his face. He was walking a tightrope because if he disagreed with 45 he could end up getting pink-slipped, which would have been bad for the country.
The best evidence of this, he said, is Trump touting hydroxychloroquine. He didn't want to squarely contradict Trump, because of Trump's temper ... he clearly feels comfortable giving Biden the straight take.
Fauci shaded Trump, by saying the mantra of the Biden Administration when it comes to coronavirus is simple ... "If you don't know the answer, don't guess. Just say you don't know the answer."
Dr. Fauci says getting back to facts and letting the science speak for itself in approaching the pandemic is a "liberating feeling."
As you may know ... President Biden and Dr. Fauci have also already teamed up to rejoin the World Health Organization, restoring ties that were cut by Trump.
