(FreedomBeacon.com)- Eighty-one-year-old Dr. Anthony Fauci, the outgoing chair of President Biden’s COVID-19 task team, stated last week that he would step down from his position in the administration and head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
It is almost certain that Fauci will not give up his camera whoring.
Reports show that Fauci has done hundreds of interviews since the coronavirus arrived in the United States in 2019. Given his background in infectious illnesses, he was first viewed as a crucial voice in educating the public about COVID-19 and how to best protect oneself from it. However, Fauci swiftly became overexposed in ways that had nothing to do with the virus and everything to do with the man himself.
InStyle magazine, for example, portrayed Fauci reclining by his pool rather than in a lab coat. Fauci has also been on the covers of magazines such as People, Time, and The Washingtonian. He was awarded “The Sexiest Man Alive” by The Guardian. Brad Pitt was nominated for an Emmy for his depiction of a seductive Fauci on Saturday Night Live.
In July 2020, The Nationals hosted the New York Yankees to kick off the Major League Baseball season in Washington, which had been delayed for over four months. Fauci was picked to throw out the first pitch and stayed to see the game, which was nearly empty.
The media shared a photo of Fauci smiling and chatting with two other people while not wearing a mask over his nose and mouth. He insisted that face masks were necessary for public settings, particularly for older Americans who may be more susceptible to the virus, especially when no vaccine was available.
Reports reveal that in April 2020, Fauci openly contradicted President Trump’s claim that a vaccine may be ready by the end of 2020, stating that it would be more likely in the later stages of 2021. The vaccination was first delivered in December 2020.
Fauci similarly flipped-flopped on mask use, initially saying that they weren’t needed as the epidemic approached, before urging them and even going so far as to propose double-masking late in 2020. He also stated that masks purchased at a store by the typical person were not “very useful” in avoiding illness.
Fauci said it was impossible for COVID-19 to have originated in a lab despite growing evidence to the contrary. He called it a ‘conspiracy theory.’ There were confrontations on Capitol Hill with Republican Senator Rand Paul over the National Institutes of Health’s funding for the gain of function research at the Wuhan Institute of Technology.
Republicans have promised hearings featuring Dr. Anthony “The Science” Fauci on Capitol Hill if they retake the House. But will the elitist RINOs agree to it?
