Washington, D.C., Brooklyn, NY (eTruePolitics) – Anthony Fauci is from the no nonsense neighborhood of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. So you know there was only so much he was going to take. Bill Barr’s edict preventing him from testifying before Congress was the last straw.
“I doubt Mr. Trump is going to be happy with my book,“ said Fauci in announcing ‘The Duct Tape Presidency: A Doctor’s Adventures in Ineptitude.’ “In fact, I’m sure of it.”
Focusing on the Trump administration’s disastrous mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic and Attorney General William Barr’s ham-handed attempt to block any discussion of same, Fauci’s ‘The Duct Tape Presidency’ will be rushed into stores for Christmas (when over 40% of all books are sold).
“I’ve tried to keep my mouth shut as I’ve watched this horror show,” said Fauci, referring to the Trump presidency, “but as my grandmother always said, ‘don’t just stand there Tony, do something.’ And I know exactly what Coligera Guardino, one tough lady, would want me to do now: get up and whack the ‘idiota.’ Which is exactly what I’m going to do in ‘The Duct Tape Presidency.’”
A photo section planned for the book was ultimately cancelled by Simon & Schuster. “We originally contemplated including photos of Trump and Barr,” said the book’s editor, Joe Monti, “but our art director said he’d quit if we did.”
