Gates, Soros, Obama Staffer Behind Group Pushing Celebrity Response to COVID-19
Left-wing globalists behind A-list Hollywood campaign #PasstheMic
The liberal celebrity campaign #PasstheMic saw A-list Hollywood stars like Hugh Jackman and Julia Roberts handing over their social media accounts to 'health experts' like Dr. Anthony Fauci to push a “global response” to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.
But digging a little deeper, those behind the campaign are a plethora of left-wing globalists, including names like:
- U2 frontman Bono
- George Soros
- Bill Gates
And at the helm of the organization is a former special assistant to President Barack Obama, Gayle Smith.
In the guest line-up includes another anti-Trump physician who blasted the president for his immigration policies and handling of the coronavirus crisis.
In a video interview with Julia Roberts, Dr. Fauci asked people to focus on how the virus is impacting poorer countries.
“We have, really, a moral responsibility for people throughout the world,” Fauci said.

Fauci also warned of the dangers of reopening the economy too quickly.
"Now is not the time to tempt fate and pull back completely,” he said.
“There is a golden mean there.”
Bono co-founded ONE Campaign to combat poverty and illness in Africa.
The advocacy group is tightly knit with donors, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which holds a seat on its board of directors.
The Gates Foundation faced backlash for how its leaders criticized President Donald Trump while praising communist China.
Last month, Gates praised China's handling of the coronavirus pandemic during a Sunday interview, claiming the Communist regime “did a lot of things right at the beginning.”
Melinda Gates also gave President Trump a “D-“ for his response to the outbreak, saying that “we need leadership.”
Moreover, the gates Foundation is also a significant donor to the embattled World Health Organization, which botched the handling of COVID-19, prompting Trump to cut its funding.
Meanwhile, ONE Campaign receives money from the Soros lobbying group, Open Society Policy Center, which opposes the Trump agenda and promotes open borders.
President and CEO of ONE Campaign, Gayle Smith, is also a former special assistant to President Obama, who appointed her to head USAID.

“None of us are safe until all of us are safe,” Smith tweeted this week to promote #PasstheMic.
Unsurprisingly, Smith is slammed Trump's decision to suspend funding to the WHO
“A cut in funding would mean a reduction in funding possible for the fight against polio where we’re near successful,” Smith said in an interview with CBS’ Face the Nation.
Additionally, guests in #PasstheMic include New York-based emergency doctor, Dr. Tsion Firew.
Firew has publicly denounced Trump’s border wall while praising Obama.
And she also blasted Trump’s decision to suspend WHO funding.
While all these leaders were pledging, showing solidarity and investing in what matters-health, one leader was busy taking hydroxychloroquine & drafting a letter to permanently stop funding from WHO. He doesn’t represent what America stands for! We miss integrity & authenticity. https://t.co/0PRTVGTGvT— Tsion Firew, MD, MPH (@DrTsion) May 19, 2020

Bridges, Not #Walls gets you the Nobel Peace Prize @realDonaldTrump . May be you can learn a thing or two from @AbiyAhmedAli @PMEthiopia @BarackObama. No to war! No to xenophobia, racism and sexism! All world leaders should heed this example. @IlhanMN @AOC @DrSenait @Malala https://t.co/M9hQBt83gx— Tsion Firew, MD, MPH (@DrTsion) October 11, 2019
