Fake or mainstream, “the truth will set us free.”  America’s White House, “the People’s House,” benefitting from “daily temperature checks, daily tests, unlimited hand sanitizers and regular deep cleaning of all workspaces,” still gets jacked at highest staff levels by coronavirus. So much so that Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the federal government’s most respected infectious diseases official, is working from home…
