Politics, policy and a side of pop culture: Major Garrett serves up a balanced diet of serious discussion, humor and food...for thought.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country's leading infectious disease expert, joins Major to talk about the pandemic and the incoming Biden administration. Fauci says he has not spoken with Vice President-elect Joe Biden but has talked with his incoming chief of staff and will meet with members of the transition team today. Fauci said British regulators "really rushed through...approval" of the Pfizer vaccine instead of scrutinizing trial data closely. Fauci worries there could be "a surge superimposed upon a surge" following the Thanksgiving holiday and said "it is possible" there could be another 250k deaths by the end of January.
