(FreedomBeacon.com)- Dr. Anthony Fauci, the face of COVID-19 lockdowns and mask mandates, has reportedly not been following his own mask rules.
According to a report by Politico Playbook – hardly a right-wing outlet – the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases was seen in Washington, D.C. last month indoors at an event and not wearing a mask.
The report explains how Fauci attended a book launch party for Jonathan Karl at Café Milano. During the event, Fauci would reportedly put his mask on as people took photographs but then take the mask back off again when people weren’t looking or when he was in the company of people that he believed he could trust.
Sally Quinn, who has known Fauci since his early days as a doctor at the National Institutes of Health, reportedly asked Fauci why he was at a party holding a mask in his hand, only for him to allegedly respond:
“I just decided that if anyone came up that I didn’t know, I would put my mask on.”
He hasn’t since explained the science behind this. Does Dr. Fauci think that people he doesn’t know are more likely to be contagious? Or is he just…a hypocrite?
When the party took place, Washington, D.C. had an indoor mask mandate in place. It was imposed in July as the Delta variant of the virus began to spread, and the mandate applied to Fauci even though he was vaccinated. It applied to everybody.

It begs the question…at what point will Dr. Anthony Fauci be held accountable for breaking his own rules, and promoting rules that he clearly doesn’t even believe in?
