This is Birx and Fauci’s escape hatch
They can never be told they’re wrong because of this:

Still, Birx and Fauci stressed that the total number of deaths is not certain to hit 100,000 if Americans strictly follow recommendations on social distancing.

“We really believe and hope every day that we can do a lot better than that,” Birx said.





Just like Rush Limbaugh said today....the doomsayers can’t ever be wrong because they can always fall back on “well you followed our guidelines amazingly and that’s why we had less deaths than projected”

So we have a rolling CYA by the pandemic experts?

Somebody used that reasoning here a few days ago in a reply to me. If a lot of people die they were right, if a lot of people don’t die they were right.

What exactly are you suggesting? What’s your angle at this point?

We never had any chance of hitting 100,000. They know this. That number is simply so they can say, "See? It worked!"

re: This is Birx and Fauci’s escape hatch
So yesterday it was 100,000-200,000. Now we are hoping for <100,000 ?

Hmmm . . .

They want to keep it going because they are loving the limelight. They have never and will never be this popular again.

You posters sound like the questioning of the dumb arse reporters.
They are doing the best they can with info they presently have. Of course info changes by the second and updates are certain.
Coach O was bound to fail, too, right?
frick you's all.

Exactly. You can see it coming a million miles away. They'll take credit for the death toll coming nowhere near their ludicrous predictions, based on their insane guidelines.

But those of us with a brain know that if this thing were half as bad as they want us to believe it is, we'd have already soared past 100,000 deaths, and just hoping these measures would keep us under a million deaths.

Planning and paying for the absolute worst case spouted off by some CYA motherfrickers who will slink away from it when they are wrong is a great way to go broke.

This works the exact same way for all you deniers. None of you will ever admit that the guidelines helped and you will cry nothing burger for the rest of your life.

The fact is we will never really know what an alternate reality would have brought.

You act like Trump isn’t holding a daily press event where he puts the folks in front of the cameras.

What we will know at the end of the year is the number of deaths and an estimate of how much our measures cost in both economic damages and outright money printing. I suspect they’re going to be way out of proportion, but that question will get answered.

Do you have any doubt that trump will use this exact line?

So if this ends up being completely overblown and has wrecked our economy, does Trump get any blame for putting these “experts” front and center everyday to spread the dire news?

Hell, Trump himself is saying over 100k dead.

If silver coins start falling from the sky, they'll blame Trump that they weren't gold.
